I’m so excited to be sharing our home tour on the blog today! And yet I’m laughing at myself in the process, too. Every time I do a home tour or share home photos on the blog I take way too long to post them and by the time it gets up I’ve changed so much in our home already! haha. And that’s what happened this time as well! I’ve changed our ottoman, purchased new side tables, changed out our lamps, refreshed our bedding, planned out new art and mixed up the coffee table. haha! So here is our home from a few months ago! 😉
When I lived in Dallas [see home tour here] I had a ton of different prints going on and it was really bright! It was a fun space, but once Paul and I got engaged I knew that our home would incorporate a lot more neutrals, which I was ready for. I wanted to still keep prints and texture through lots of ginger jars, coffee table books and curtains.
You’ve also probably noticed it is a smaller space. Welcome to 1940, y’all! haha. We purchased an older, renovated home and loved the charm and neighborhood. We knew we weren’t having a family right away and so location was the most important factor to us. Being newlyweds it’s really fun to be 3 minutes away from everything. We are naturally home bodies and so it’s really easy to go to our favorite sushi spot a minute down the road or our gym 2 minutes away. Because if things were further I honestly think we’d just say, “Ehhhh. Maybe we should.”
My favorite part about this open living space is our bar cart. I’m not a drinker. I order wine at dinner. Take two sips and then try to get Paul to ignore the fact I just wasted $20. But I think it’s such a fun thing to incorporate for displaying little pieces! My mom doesn’t drink and they have a bar cart in their home that stores all her serving ware! I plan on putting all of my China on mine in little hat boxes once I can get it all organized. It’s also a huge help with hosting. Before friends come over I just add a bucket of ice, some cookies and glasses and that way I’m able to get them anything they need without going into the kitchen and not being able to converse with them.
I’ll list where everything available is from above, but I’d love to hear if you have any home decor questions or post requests you’d like to see! I shared how to decorate and move quickly before here but if you want something in terms of budgeting, combining his taste with hers or anything else please let me know! Interior decorating is such a passion of mine and something I never turn down talking about!
Our bedroom spaces will be up on the blog too next week! Thank you so much for stopping by!
