Cozy, Charming Cottages

- Projects + Inspiration

The other day I shared a photo over on Instagram of a pink front door with wisteria growing all around it, and I was so obsessed and inspired that I started looking up more pink doors on Pinterest…(Follow me on Instagram [here] and Pinterest [here]!). And suddenly I fell into the deep, dark wormhole that is Pinterest. Does that ever happen to anyone else? You start looking at one thing, find another, and then all of a sudden you find…

The Best Farmhouse Range Hoods

The Best Farmhouse Rangehoods via Life on Shady Lane blog

I was thinking earlier this morning about how we’re coming up on ONE WHOLE YEAR without a microwave. We took ours out on Easter day last year, threw it away (it was ancient), and have never looked back. I remember before I took it out and was considering not purchasing a new one, a couple people told me that I’d want “need” a microwave. But I was determined not to buy a new one. And guess what? I don’t even…

Toddler Bedroom Inspiration

The upstairs of our home has two bedrooms and a bathroom. I showed some before photos of what will be our “master bedroom” the other day [here], and I’m already looking forward to finishing that room and decorating it. However, what I’ve been MOST excited about is decorating the 2nd bedroom – it will be Henry’s room! And let’s be real, kids rooms are just more fun. That’s the way it should be right? They’re for KIDS! I go back…

Staircase Gallery Wall Inspiration

- Projects + Inspiration

Have you ever heard someone say that, in order to create a home that feels personal, unique, and truly you, yet still beautiful and functional, you should be a collector? Meaning that you should not worry so much about buying matching pieces and decorating an entire room all at once, but instead buy things that you really love one by one, whenever you find them. The theory is that in doing this, you’ll create a home that automatically feels cohesive because everything in…

Bookshelf Inspiration

- Projects + Inspiration

In January, I posted about our 2016 Home Goals, and one of those goals was to paint the built in bookshelves in our dining room. I have been debating back and forth about how I want to paint them – all white, white with a different color background, stained, etc. I have been searching for a little inspiration on Pinterest, and though I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do to our bookshelves yet, I thought I’d share some…

Haint Blue

- Home

I mentioned the other day that we are not settled into our new home quite yet – in fact, half of our stuff is in Missouri, and half is in Nevada. So, for now we have two homes. I am so looking forward to settling into the new house and making it our own that Pinterest has basically become an addiction. There are so.many.IDEAS.  The other night while perusing for ways to make our porch feel more homey, I came across a…

Nursery Inspiration

- Projects + Inspiration, Shop, Style + Motherhood

While we’re not exactly not at all settled in one place just yet, I’ve been thinking about this baby’s nursery for quite some time and can’t wait to get it all put together. I only have 8 weeks to go, so I’m not very confident that it will be put together before he gets here, but the good news is that he can sleep in our room in a bassinet for a while. Plus, all of this time to plan has…

Fall Florals

- Home

This morning it was 60 degrees here in Reno, and that weather, coupled with the smell of pumpkin coffee brewing, made me so excited for Fall. I can’t wait to be able to wear boots and sweaters…and decorate with all of those pretty Fall colors. Pinterest is brimming with fashion & decor ideas, and I can’t stop looking at all of the Fall florals – I love the rich colors and natural, woodsy aspects. Here is a little inspiration for…

The Great Debate

- Home

Last week, we found our perfect sectional. We left the showroom that day planning on returning to order ours in navy – I was confident that’s what we were going to do. Then, this past weekend, we went back and B pulled a leather swatch, just so we could see another option. After about 45 minutes of agonizing back-and-forth comparisons, guess what we ended up with? The camel-colored leather! And now, we wait (for “4 to 6 weeks”) until our new baby…
