Home Sweet Home: Coffee Nook

Don’t laugh, but I have always wanted a designated coffee station. Silly…maybe. Basic…extremely. But we have one, it’s functional, and I love it. Eventually we’d like to turn this nook into something more permanent with cabinets, a countertop, wine fridge, etc. It’ll be our booze and coffee corner.

Home Sweet Home: Fall Decor

I really love getting into the different seasons and holidays. While I may get really, incredibly into Christmas (cause who doesn’t), I also love the small touches of fall we spread throughout the house starting mid-September in an attempt to really get into the changing seasons, even if it’s forced because it’s hot as balls outside.

Home Sweet Home: Closet Tour

I have to admit I have a love/hate relationship with this closet. It’s a custom closet installed by the previous owner. My issue…the doors don’t actually work. The hangers (standard size huggable hangers) seem to be too big. You have to push the clothes and hangers back to slide the doors shut. And speaking of the doors, I’m not in love with mirrored door fronts.

Home Sweet Home: Office tour

Our office isn’t a very big one. It also serves as our guest room and even my closet (that will be a whole different post)…a multipurpose room of sorts. It’s tiny but incredibly functional. It took some time to configure the room to make our furniture fit but we managed to get it all in there, with a little (read: very little) room to spare.

Home Sweet Home: The Kitchen

The kitchen in this house is what sold it for me. I actually looked at our amazing realtor, Amy Koch, while standing in the kitchen and told her I wanted it…totally hadn’t even looked at the rest of the house. As you know I love to cook so having the perfect kitchen is a thing for me. There is so much storage space.

Home Sweet Home: Living Room Reveal

It’s been two months since we moved in to the new house and we have settled in just nicely. We have a list of things we still want to do with the house, but that’s more of a wish list than a need to do list. If you’ll remember a while back, I talked about what I’d like to see in my living room; the aesthetics, color scheme, furniture, etc.

Home Sweet Home: Lessons Learned

We’re all moved into the house now. I spent two uninterrupted days unpacking everything. The hubs was away on a work trip so I took that opportunity to unpack like a fiend. We moved Friday, I was out of boxes Saturday, and by Sunday evening I was kicked back and relaxing. This is the first move I’ve ever done, nor will it be the last, I’m sure.

Home Sweet Home: Living Room

We bought a house!!! Yes. We are officially adults. It was bound to happen sooner or later. I have been waiting for a while to really show off my home and my decor, but once we jumped on the home buying train, I knew I wanted to wait to show my home style once we could get our hands on the perfect first home.
We finally did just that.
