We’re getting closer and closer to closing on our house. Yay! In the meantime, I have decorated the entire house on Pinterest. Ha. But for real…I love dreaming and casting vision for our new home. I can’t wait to get in there and get creative.
My projects are still kind of on hold. The husband, the girls, and I have been battling this upper respiratory crud for TWO MONTHS now. I was literally angry a few days ago because I have had this lingering cough and sinus pressure for forever. And I especially hate to see the babies with it. Grr. So the priority the last couple of weeks has been staying in and getting well.
We’re also still in revival! Praise God! We’re right in the midst of what has been called the “Appalachian Awakening” and an awakening it truly is. We’ve only just seen a taste of what is to come and it’s exciting to see the Lord’s will unfold in this region. What has been labeled a place of hopelessness for so long is now becoming a place of restoration that people are flocking to. WOW!
In the meantime, I have been researching (AKA…Pinteresting) décor ideas for the house. Here are some pictures that have inspired me.
This is the exact look I envision for our living room. What makes this even greater is the fact that our living room has large, open windows like this picture. I love all of these neutral colors. The only thing I might would change is the color of the sofa since we have a toddler 😉
This is a great decorative area. I actually have many of these types of items already – I’m just keeping an eye out for a similar table to repurpose. Piece of cake.
During my maternity leave this year, my husband and I binge-watched the entire series of Parenthood. One, it was a GREAT show. You can’t help but fall in love with the family and wish that you were a part of it. Two, they had a GREAT kitchen. The color scheme and glass cabinets in this picture are similar. We decided that we needed to have a kitchen that looked like this…and that we should definitely have at least 4 kids. Ha. Half-way there! (The other half will not be happening for a while…this mama’s body needs a break!)
I actually think it’s important to put “decorating the bathroom” toward the top of the to-do list. It’s not only a room that you use multiple times a day, but it’s a room that guests will also see that truly reflects your personal, private life. Ha. However, I’m not one to spend a ton of money on this room. I think this picture reflects my personal style to a tee. It’s stylish, yet simple. AND functional. Seriously, I don’t know who is able to have a bathroom without closets, cabinets, and drawers…
While I am a huge fan of the farmhouse look, I’d say that I probably won’t follow it accurately. I would actually describe my style more as “Garage Sale Chic”…I like finding neat knick-knacks to incorporate into my décor. But I am finding myself drawn to farmhouse style knick-knacks like pails, metal tins, twine, baskets, windows, etc.
I can’t wait to start scavenging antique shops, thrift stores, and yard sales. I’ve picked up a couple of things here and there but space is our enemy right now since we’re in transition. But the DAY we get the keys to the house, you can bet I’ll be making some purchases! We’ll have the storage space 😉
Kaleb and I are so blessed to be in the position that we are in right now. Buying a house, making incredible ministry connections, opportunities coming available that will greatly benefit our family…the list goes on. We have a good, good Father. He has been providing for us and loving on our little family.
How would you describe your décor style? And are you making it happen?
