We’ve been in our house for almost 4 months, and while we knew there were some aesthetic things we wanted to upgrade, it seems that list is growing at an alarming rate.
My mom and sister have mad skills when it comes to decorating a home, and so I let them do their thing when they are here. I don’t choose paint colors without my mom’s direction, and she can accessorize a room creatively in under 5 seconds. My sister is the gallery wall queen (as evidenced by this beauty she just hung in her new apartment) and hung a lot of the art and frames in my house!
If it were up to me I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to get anything done in a timely matter. In fact, I have a clock that needs to be hung sitting on the floor about 5 feet from the future location that has been there for 42 days. It will take less than 5 minutes to hang but for some reason I cannot find the will to hang it. What is my problem.
I love the little wooden “hello” that Kacia helped me attach to my front door(we used command stickers). It’s from Woodums! If you’ve been around the blog a bit you may have seen that I’ve spoken highly of Wallums for wall decals. You may have also seen the wood signs on the boys’ doors in the house too! (You can get 15% off your order at Woodums using code TSTB15!!)
I didn’t want a huge centerpiece for our dining room table, and I was tired of the runner + candles look, so my sister helped me put together this little arrangement of fake flowers. The lantern was found on clearance at Target, and the silver filling is from Ikea. We found the flowers at Michael’s.
I needed something to fill the corner between my couch and the wall, but I didn’t want a heavy piece of furniture. I love rooms that are airy and don’t feel bogged down with too many things. My sister and I found this bar cart at Target and my mom accessorized the top!
One of the first areas of the house that was finished was this front entryway. I loved the over sized matted frames, and of course had to put photos of the boys in there. The cabinet is old from Target (a square option), as well as the florals. I have absolutely no need for this but I’m in love with it.
I’m hoping to share more peeks at the house as things continue to come together, but I couldn’t help but are a few of my favorite small little decorations and corners!
