We’ve been settling in the past 6 months, making our house a home and
figuring out the best storage solutions for our new space!
I wanted to share how we’ve been working on making our home functional and cozy feeling.
Still tracking down the paint color but will post it as soon as I get it!!
In the video I just casual walked around the house giving a little more detail and sharing
info people ask me about via Instagram a lot. I linked below
products and past blog posts of things I share in the video as well!
I always feel a little insecure sharing how I decorate because I don’t feel
like an expert or have the largest budget to work with.
But comparison is the thief of joy and I’m very grateful and loving
the space we have. We’ve been blessed with this home to gather our family in.
I believe in making your home functional for your life and making it
beautiful, no matter your budget, so you can enjoy your every day space.
Throw frames on your wall…..string up your kids’ art work!
Make it be a space that when you walk through you feel the love and memories.
Don’t wait for it to be perfect to start… Move furniture around… shop your own house.
I do that a lot especially when we move. I don’t shop anywhere with crazy price tags.
It’s usually Target, Hobby Lobby and Amazon. IKEA when we had one close to us.
I have put effort into making our house a home because it’s our home base…
As a mom, working from home, I spend a lot of my days here and I want to like my view if I can!
Plus, hanging frames is way more fun than doing the laundry..and I’m a total procrastinator with chores. ;)
Here’s some photos and links by room… to past blog posts or items in our house.
Comment and let me know if I missed anything you wanted to know more about.
I know I always appreciate when people link things that they share because
it might be JUST the thing you were wanting in a space.
