Updated House Tour!!!


I cannot believe that this past weekend marked 8 months in our home!! It’s crazy¬†how quickly time is flying. Although we still have a lot left to do (almost the entire 2nd level, basement, add wainscoting to dining room, paint foyer and living room, etc) I wanted to recap the projects that we’ve tackled thus far through an updated house tour!

Entryway

When you first enter our home, you are welcomed into our foyer. I love the two-story entry!

Dining Room

The dining room has become one of my favorite transformations. Click here to see how far this room has actually come. I am still on the lookout for the perfect server to go the back wall.

Living Room

Our living room sits in the front of the house and gets the most amazing sunlight! Lots of fun projects coming this summer in this room!

Family Room

If you ask Mr. H what his favorite room makeover has been so far, he’d say the family room. Remember him tearing down the old built-in in the corner?¬†¬†I am also sooo glad there’s no more stucco on the walls! Click here to see more on this transformation.

Kitchen

We were so fortunate that the kitchen was in great shape when we moved in! Just a few decorative touches and the space feels like a continuation of the family room.

Powder Room

Now THIS is where my hands got really dirty! From tearing out old fixtures to patching walls, I pulled out the stops in this room. Click here to read more on one of my favorite weekend makeovers.

Laundry Room

I actually really enjoy doing laundry in our new laundry room! It’s so bright and cheery ūüôā Thanks, mom, for helping me organize the space! Click here to read more.

Master Bedroom

I painted the vaulted ceilings!! I know that this may not sound like much of an accomplishment, but 5’2″ me is proud! I am loving the way this room is coming together. It’s been such a wonderful place to retreat to at the end of a long day. Not shown¬†is our en suite master bathroom which is home to the most relaxing soaking tub you could imagine. More touches in this room coming soon!

Guest Bathroom     

Haven’t done much here yet– simply accessorized¬†with some old favorites from our former apartment. Is is so nice to give guests a space of their own. Click here to see progress on our guest bedroom which is currently being made over!

Back Yard

Serene, private, oasis¬†= three words I’d use to describe our backyard. We love entertaining out here. Whether¬†we’re roasting s’mores in our fire pit, reading in my natural¬†garden canopy, watching the frogs and turtles in our pond, or keeping an eye out for a¬†family of deer, you can guarantee that when the sun is shining that this is where you’ll find us.

Oh that last picture? Yea, that was the  bear that visited us last fall.  Next outdoor project is a fence!!!

 

Ahh..having all of these photos in one place makes me realize how much we’ve accomplished! (Go us!) I can’t wait to get started on the rest of the house. Thanks for following me this far ūüôā

We are officially homeowners!!!

I am so excited to let you all know that we’ve bought our first house!! (Which is also why I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks…whoops!)¬† So far we’ve been here for two weeks and could not have been happier with our home. I am also excited that I can now start getting my hands dirty with all the design ideas I’ve been pinning for the¬†last year! Most of the house is still empty as we now have many more rooms to fill than we did in our 1 bedroom apartment, but I still wanted to share a few photos of our new digs.

For today’s post, I’ll share the Family Room/Kitchen area. By no means is this room done (we have several projects ahead of us including new floors, paint, window treatments, new sofa…etc), but this is the room that we spend most of our time in by far.

When we started house hunting, we knew we wanted a place that we could entertain. We love to have our closest friends and family over and wanted a home that would allow everyone to mingle and converse easily. We LOVE how this open floor plan allows us to do just that!

This rooms get sooo much light– it’s amazing. Cooper loves lounging here too!

photo 4 (2)

The breakfast bar is perfect for additional seating and for grabbing a quick bite in the morning. Plus it¬†allows¬†me to¬†still feel a part of the action while I’m cooking!

photo 3 (2)

Next to¬†the kitchen¬†are 3 additional¬†spaces: the Laundry Room (left), the Powder Room (straight) and the¬†Garage (right).¬†Hanging in the right corner, you’ll see my¬†monogrammed Key Holder I made when we first got married.¬†Placing¬†it right next¬†to the garage is both attractive¬†and convenient as we are¬†able to hang our keys¬†right when we¬†get home. ¬†I also love that the previous owners added a buffet for additional storage. It’s a great place to set up a bar during parties!

photo 2 (2)

To the left of the buffet are our sliding glass doors leading out to our back yard. (More on the yard in another post.) These curtains were the first thing I purchased for this room. I wanted something to soften the doors, but still allow light to shine through. These finds were from Bed Bath and Beyond and are the perfect addition to the space. I LOVE them!

Fireplace

The gas burning fireplace and mantle were hand crafted by the original owners. I love how its rustic lines¬†play ¬†against some of the more modern elements in the room.¬† And with fall just around the corner, I can’t wait to snuggle up next to this baby!

We’ve definitely got a list of things to do in the space to really make it our own, but with a few photos on the wall and some of our familiar pieces, it’s already starting to feel like home!
