Hello everyone! I'm so happy to see you back and reading my blog! Can I just take this moment to tell you that I am so appreciative of you coming back to check in on me from time to time? I am so blessed.


My husband and I are getting really close to being able to close on our new home. If you haven't seen the tour of it you can view that here. The closer we are to being able to move in, the more I am turning to pinterest for some inspiration in home decor. So, I thought I'd dedicate this post to show you my personal style, and for you to get to know me more. All links to where I found these images will be underneath each individual photo! I'd love to hear your opinions/suggestions.

The first rooms I really want to tackle are our living room and bedroom. Here's my inspiration for the living room:
Love this rug so much!
I like the Navy and the Buttery Yellow together :)
I'm not planning on painting the kitchen nor the living room. I think the color works really well for those areas and keeps our small space open and light. So, I decided to play off of our beautiful lake view and add elements and coloring from it into our home. The colors I want to use are navy and yellow! I thought our trunk would act as the perfect color pop in our living room. Remember, we're planning on getting some Plexiglass to turn it into a coffee table. I'm currently begging my father, who is a watercolorist, to make me some awesome stormy lake scenes to pull in the deep sage of our home and the navy blues and grays I'm planning to use as accent colors. My plan is to use that, a few pieces of my own art, and pictures from the wedding as a gallery wall. (Keep coming back, because I am planning on having an entire post about the the final product!) My husband has been slowly letting me purchase things for our home. In addition to a few supplies for our gallery wall that I've been working on, I've also bought a few rugs to go into the bathroom. Here's a look at them:

This rug is very similar to the rug I purchased from Kohls, but mine was WAY cheaper - they didn't have an image of mine on their website. This one was the closest I could get. So there's a little look at my inspiration for our Kitchen, Bathroom, and Living Room. Next, here are the ideas I pulled for our bedroom.

Good balance... maybe for a bedroom

for my bedroom next year, it's painted mint green. good colors to go with it, (pink or blush, warm whites or cream, taupe, french gray, metallic gold, dark brown, black.) (AVOID: true white, blue, purple, green, metallic silver)
mini chandeliers and chairs as nightstands

I am obsessed with the idea of having mini chandeliers as our bedside lamps. I'm hoping that having them hanging will free up more visual space for night stands and our posessions - like our devotions, Bibles, books, and water! So that's a little bit of my vision for our home. Here are the two things I've decided on so far. 

Our bedroom wall color -

And lastly, our bedspread!

Threshold™ Chevron Herringbone Duvet Set

That's as far as I've gotten so far! Check back on Monday to see what else I've come up with! Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Love the colors and inspiration! Such a great cottage-y feel. Makes me want to visit. :-)

    1. Amber that's the look we're going for! Hoping we can pull it off but still keep it fairly minimal! Wish me luck!
