The Kitchen and Great Room

Popping in with a few after Easter photos of the kitchen and dining area...


We've been enjoying some nice weather in Alabama this week.
I took photos quickly and then realized you can see dust and smudges.
Remember we live here ;)

Beginnings of a Statement Wall...

I have been changing a few things in the great room of our new home.
 When we moved into the house the art really threw me off.
We have such a long stretch of wall... what to do with it?
I have some vintage portraits hanging... but they were void of any color.
I wanted a bit of my blues... and a new fresh look.
So I added some barn prints I had blew up into posters.
They were 4-12 dollars each and I reused frames I had.
I painted them all a high gloss spray paint.

Spring is Here!

Spring is Sprung in North Alabama!!
Thought you might enjoy a tour of my front gardens today...
Remember we just moved into the house a few months ago.
This is our first Spring and I cannot wait to plant this full of color.

But I am happy with the few blooms I have...

Modern Shelves in my Office

Hello there... just a quick update from my last post about my office.
I ended up ordering these two smaller shelf units. 
They were half price of what I had been looking at.

And narrower... which works better with the space.
 I love the barnwood finish and the modern style.
 I will be adding storage bins soon... but for now they have a bit of pretty.
Here is the link if you want to order them.
 $59 from Walmart

Been busy with my job and the girls.
My parents are coming for a visit this weekend.
I am missing them, its been since Christmas.

Hope all is well....Brooke

Vintage Blues in the Great Room

Welcome back... two posts in a week!

I've made a few simple changes in the great room lately.
Been adding more denim blues... which I cannot get enough of.
 It all started with my rug and curtains....
 I love how warm and homey this room is becoming.
It is a HUGE space with 10 foot ceilings.
I want it to be comfortable and welcoming.

Spring Hutch & Dining Area

 Welcome back!
I hope your having a good week so far.
Today I am sharing my antique hutch with some Spring touches.
I am keeping things light and simple in the new house.
I love all the deep blues, but pretty much everything else is neutrals.

New Rug In My Pretty Home Office...

 This post is a bit overdue...
I ordered this rug before Christmas and have been in love with it.
But I never shared it on the blog.
This is a Wayfair rug called Castleford Beige.
Mine is an 10 by 12... I love how large it is.
Plus I got it on sale for less than $100!
Recently I have added a few Spring touches...
Including a new wreath...

The After Christmas Fireplace...

So not all of my Christmas is put away...
but a good portion of it is.

After the holidays my mantle looked a bit bare....
If you want to how I had it... CLICK HERE.

 I don't want a ton of decor here, but something....
I have big plans for some large lanterns... but as of yet...
I am making do with what I have on hand.
