HOME-SPIRATION: Kitchen Cabinet Colors

So as we go along in this renovation process it is easy to get caught up in the small things, how dusty the house seems or how we have to wear shoes constantly now (I am a ‘go barefoot’ kind of girl!) but what I really need to focus on is the fact that these renovations are really giving us great experience in what we both really want to do (design spaces and renovate!) So I get a blank canvas and free manual labor! (haha. only joking David!) So right now I am collecting inspiration images (the designer in me) and trying to put together an image of what we want our first floor to look like! We plan on painting our wood cabinets because we have decided to put hardwood floors throughout the first floor. I really can’t decide between grey or white! Here are some of my home-spiration images for painted cabinets, maybe you can help me decide!

SUNDAY INSPIRATION: One Smile

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

 

So many times I find quotes online or on Pinterest and they strike me as such amazing inspiration, not for my blog or for others, but really tug at my own heart strings and pull at my own personal development. I know I am guilty of doing the exact opposite that this quote asks you to do. I know there are times that I am cranky, upset, or quite frankly miserable at home, but I go out into the world and smile at strangers because I am worried of their impression of me. Now don’t get me wrong smiling at a stranger or an act of kindness is nothing to be ashamed of because that can truly change the course of someones day or even life, but what about those people at home? What about the ones who care for you and love you even when you’re cranky, they deserve your smile, they deserve your love and open heart the most. Just because you know those people will be around forever, whether they are the family you are born with or the family you have created on your own, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give them your only smile! That is even more reason to give them your smile, because through good and bad they have given you theirs. So this week, and more, I am going to give my smile (hopefully there is more than one) to those at home.

 

INSTAPOST: Renovation Update

So of course this water heater flood has really turned our home upside down! Thankfully I have the most handy man in the world who has decided to take on all of these major renovations (by himself!) in order to make us the most beautiful home. (okay be warned this may be kind of a bragging post because I feel so lucky right now!) The past two weeks David has finished all of the drywall that needed to be done, ripped up all of our baseboards, and has removed almost all the tile on our first floor! Here are some photos of the damage…

The next steps include removing the last layer of grout and remove the tile from our downstairs powder room, paint, then we (and by this I mean David) can start laying hardwood floors! Slowly but surely this place will become less dusty and more like our dream home! I am just so grateful for David’s insanely amazing work ethic!a
