Happy Monday to you!
First — I have moved blog locations/domains. To make a long story short, I started Details on Wix in 2014, and while I loved the freedom on that site to really easily customize everything, when it came to the actual hosting of my blog, it was kind of lame. So, for the past few days I have been transferring over all of my content (not fun, but worth it) and here I am…on WordPress. Insert thumbs-up emoji here. 🙂
During the few weeks of the actual home-buying process, I was busy pinning away ideas for the house and I also came up with some mood boards. These were all made before we even got into the house, but they kept me busy during the nail-biter that was Is this really happening?
I never shared these mood boards on the blog, and to be honest, during the four months or so that we have been here, it’s looking like a lot of this is going to change. But I thought it might be fun to take a look and do a little recap.
This is our living room, and so far we’re sticking to a lot of this. The feeling in this room is very similar to the feeling of this board. There is no art on the walls yet, which is starting to get to me, but to be fair, I haven’t really looked for any at this point. I am desperately wanting a hide rug like that one but am waiting for the one that I want to go on sale. The Eames-style rocking chair is something that I do really want, and those can be found at great price-points, so we’ll get it in time. The IKEA media console is amazing and we purchased it literally the day that we moved in. It’s one of my favorite pieces in the whole house.
I really have no idea if this is what our bedroom will look like. We have the bed picked out that we want but real life — we’ve been sleeping on a mattress since we moved in, lol. Well, a mattress and a box spring, so it’s a little better than sleeping on just a mattress. 😉 . I’m not sure if I want the accent color in this room to be red, but I do think that I want it to be a fun bold color . We shall see! I’m hoping that we will buy the bed next month at the latest. Let’s just say our bedroom is not my favorite room right now, and I want that to change!
This is the office, and this room is going to pretty much completely change from the ideas on this board. The chandelier makes me laugh, because just a few days of 90-degree weather in this house and we definitely need all of the fans in the rooms. This room is fine as it is, and is sort of my last priority at this point. We’ll get to it, but I’m not really sure what I want yet.
Our kitchen is another room that I’m not sure of. The chairs have since changed from this idea – they’re an Eames style and are working out really well. We do have the chandelier, which we love. I’m having slight regrets for not getting the bigger one, I will admit to that. The cabinetry is what really has me stumped. Originally I thought white, then I thought black, then I thought leave it, now I have no idea. Our appliances are black, which definitely would not be my first choice (or even my second, or third, ha!), but they are really functional so I am thankful for that. Anyway, I’m still on the fence about this and will not paint anything until I know I won’t be filled with regret.
That’s kind of where we’re at right now. The bathrooms need a little bit of help – they are fine but I want to paint the cabinets. Possibly frame out the mirrors, add some fun accessories, change out the fixtures. Lighting in the house is really okay, but I want to add some better, more updated ones. All in good time. 🙂
Wishing my brother a happy birthday today! I love you!
