Home Status As of Late

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

In case you've been living under a rock recently, you know Jeff and I are on a serious mission to finish decorating our house... I am so ready to finish what we have started and we've made some serious progress lately:

Living Room
mastered a lovely console table ensemble (with a FABULOUS mirror) + hung some fun new pieces of art + put up a picture ledge...

yes, we need actual pictures to put in them =)


now i'm experimenting with mantle pieces/decor and searching for side tables

Dining Room
table + covered parsons chairs + rustic bench + my candlescape and runner + 2 prints from a homespun Franklin store + colorful buffet wall clock= one happy girl

**to finish the room, we'll be installing a new chandelier and either a mirror or a wine rack/glass holder on the left side of the window

Kitchen
after we painted the kitchen a different color, we began to love this room
that we use everyday even more... 
 
now we're on the hunt for backsplash for the counters, new pendant lighting to go above the island and sink, and a fun pot rack for the island

Guest Rooms
#1: added a gorgeous upholstered chair and now looking for small decor bits and pieces as well as a TV to call this room done!

#2: just brought home an fun oversized lamp + mustard yellow coverlet + ready to hang an oversized mirror... now we need a dresser, curtains, TV, and prints for the walls and then this one will be complete as well

Office
the desk, rug, and hutch are all there, but loads more to go...
i need to add a bookcase/filing cabinet + boards and supply holders to the walls + and fun accessories + a sophisticated upholstered chair and then I can retreat to "my space" whenever I like 

Such a long way to go, then I remind myself that we have made tremendous headway given the fact that we have only lived in our house 1 full year as of February... at least this gives me excuses to scour my favorite design blogs and websites and renew my home magazine subscriptions for added styling to the abode =)

  24. LOVE your decorating style!! Especially the touches of yellow and all of the mercury glass. My fav!! If you don't mind me asking, where are the yellow pillows on the couch in living room from? I REALLY love patterned one on the right (next to the burlap pillow)!

  25. It's so hard to remember that you don't have to do everything at once! When we moved into our home last April I wanted to hit the ground running and decorate every single room. We're slowly doing room by room and only have two left to go!
