Welcome to our home. Yea yea, it took a Housewarming Party to get our house clean and organized enough to take pictures to share on here. USUALLY we have piles of clothes ready to be be folded or put in the laundry, baby toys everywhere and a messy bedroom. I don’t have every room to share just yet but when we were planning on paint colors, decorations, and blah blah blah.. I relied on other blogs & home tours for ideas and I want to be the same help to others.
This is the view coming up the stairs, we have 3 bedrooms and a loft which I predict will be gated off and made into a playroom in the very near future.

It’s HUGE! Our old bedroom barely fit our king size bed so this is quite the change. I wanted a calming gray color but didn’t want it to seem to institutional. The curtains came from Ikea, furniture from American Signature. THAT was a spurge I just had to have a few years ago and Chris hated the canopy, so when we moved in here I kept the canopy off. Then by the 2nd night we put it back up because the room was just so big and like a dog feels comfort in their kennel, we needed our canopy. Yes, I just compared us to dogs.

The Loft/Future Playroom & Hallways
This will be nice when we can gate it off, the laundry room is right across from this and will give me no excuse to get laundry done. HA!

I am just in LOVE with his room. We kept it the same as Nolan’s room from the previous house and so glad we did. We found that bookcase on craigslist and with a few coats of paint, it was well worth the whopping $60. The rug used to be plain navy blue, but I found this perfection at Lowes and knew it would just tie his room together. I love that he can grow into this room for many years to come.
Paint Color: Harbor from Ralph Lauren but mixed in Behr since RL is no longer available
It’s a work in progress that was literally finished minutes before the party. It will eventually be a sea/fish theme, unless I change my mind before then. My Dad put up the wainscoting and it really made this bathroom look SO MUCH BETTER!
It took some convincing to get my girly room but I adore it! The light & bedding is from Ikea, curtains were found at TJ Maxx and the beautiful furniture was a $90 steal on craigslist. I plan on hanging some large black and white Chicago pictures whenever I find some that don’t cost an arm and a leg.

The future dining room/living room is off to the left. We have not touched this room yet since we have no clue what we want. So what do we do…. throw our extra patio furniture in there. Class.

I had fallen in LOVE with the Board & Batten I have seen on so many DIY blogs and decided to start small and try it in a small room. My Dad and I set out to Home Depot and a few days later, our powder room was completely changed. Thank you Dad!

We tried taking this mirror off to replace it with a framed one, but the mirror was not going to budge without making a huge hole in the wall. I was thinking of outlining the mirror in rope. Thoughts? Any other ideas, please share.
