Our New Entryway and a Few Other Little Peeks

Last week we closed on our new home! It has been a whirlwind couple of months here so we are so excited that finally this week we really feel like we can start settling in. Our new home's interior is pretty similar to our last home so it may seem a little crazy that we moved as we start sharing pictures of our new home, but the yard and driveway situation is so much more ideal for our family and the amount of time that we spend outdoors. I have literally barely had time to sit down for the last six weeks so this post will be short and not have a whole lot of words but I wanted to at least share a few little peeks into our new home and then hopefully in the next week or two I'll actually have time to really sit down and go through some more before shots.

First up here is our entryway. Some of this new house has the original wood trim and some of it was recently painted white. The entryway was one of the spaces that had the white trim (yay!!!) so in here we just painted the walls White Dove and then we painted our Soft Surroundings chest with some Wrought Iron which we had leftover from several years ago. For the holidays we added our large boxwood wreath and topiaries and our wooden horse and stocking from HomeGoods. We temporarily have our faux cowhide rug in here because it's the only rug we have that fits in this space but it's still a little too big. Once I find something else though we will move it - most likely up to our master bedroom. I may just look for a smaller version of this one because I like the way the shape fits the angled floor space. It just is a little too large. Well, it technically fits just fine but visually I think it is too large.

Over on the right wall we added the HomeGoods bench that we used to have in our dining room and a new piece of art from Deann that I absolutely LOVE. I hung it in here the moment it arrived, I love the colors so much and the church reminds me of the one that we got married in! I actually switched it the other day with a piece in the kitchen and I think I like it even better in there because of how perfectly it goes with the kitchen cabinet color, and the piece I switched it with has a gold frame which coordinates nicely with the mirror. I took these pictures though before I thought to switch them. I am hoping to take some pictures of the kitchen and family room this weekend and as long as I do I will share them next week!

We added some other festive elements (I kept switching out the wreaths, I couldn't decide which I liked better). 

To the left of the entryway is our formal living room. I painted the walls in there Blue Note which I LOVE! Jamie used it in her back hall and I thought seeing how I loved it there it was worth trying in here. I'm waiting on some draperies to arrive next week and then I'll share a few more images of the room. I can't wait to share more pictures of this rug from RugsUSA. It is beautiful! I love the vintage look to it and the soft tones.

The two rooms that had been remodeled before the prior owners put it on the market were the kitchen and the master bathroom so we are won't be doing any major changes in there. We are just adding some little touches like these gold pulls and a new gold faucet. I am waiting on a few more of the pulls (that are supposed to arrive today!) and then we will take some kitchen photos. Here's a little peek though. I think the cabinet color is Lampblack. Although I eventually plan on painting them Wrought Iron, right now I am loving the color they are! Unfortunately I don't have any details on the backsplash or counters.

Here are a few before photos of the family room that is attached to the kitchen. As you can see it is VERY VERY similar to our old house - ha! In fact, so much so that I had zero interest in it the first time I saw it. However, after the house we were originally planning on buying fell through due to some major structural issues and our house was under contract and I had crossed of just about every other house we had looked at and we were running out of time, I decided to give it another look. It met so many of the other things on our list I decided it was rather silly to ignore this one just because of this room being so similar. 

It does have this bay window though which I love! 

That's all I've got time for right now but hopefully I will have some more photos to share next week!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend! We will be back tomorrow with Jamie's sunroom all decked out for the holidays! It looks so amazing!

Christmas in our Guest Room

Well, except for a progressive dinner we are doing next week, I think this is our last room to share of our old house! (Although if I get to it, I may do a round up of all the before and afters from the last three and a half years in a few weeks).

I thought the bright green boxwood wreath and garland from our collection at Painted Fox would look pretty against the black and whites in this room. This is our third Christmas with this wreath and it is one of my favorites!

We added one of our magnolia wreaths over to the desk area as well as our favorite skis!

We added some fresh creamy roses and some ornaments we found at HomeGoods last year mixed in with some wrapper paper we found there as well.

We got these paperwhites years ago at a local store (which unfortunately has now closed) and use them every single winter!

The crown ornament was from a year or two ago - I think maybe from Target?

The plaid deer was from Target last fall and was fun to use in this room this year against the dark walls! I hung a faux cedar wreath around him that I bought several years ago at a local store (that is now closed). The throw and pillows are from HomeGoods.

The snowshoes were an antique find from my mom a couple of Christmases ago.

Well, that's about it! I hope to be back Thursday or Friday with a post with a few photos of our new house.

Lillie and Lola's Christmas Rooms

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! We shared on instagram last night that we closed on a new home earlier this week so later this week we will have a post up with more details on our move and hopefully at least a few photos! For now though I have a couple last posts to share of our last home. Today I am sharing Lillie and Lola's rooms and then tomorrow or Tuesday I'll have our guest room and then hopefully by then I will have had time to work on a post about our new home. 

So for today we have Lillie and Lola's rooms. First up is Lillie's. For her room we hung some snowball garland that I think we got at Target (it was a few years ago so not positive) and then aded some pom pom wreaths that we made a couple of years ago as well.  Then we added some ice skates that were mine when I was a younger. 

I took these photos over a span of three days due to a bunch of other things we had going on so things like the skates got moved around.

We hung her polka dot stocking we got at PBKids last year (or maybe two years ago?) on her dresser and then added some little trees we got at Target several years ago and a silver wreath wreath we got from Joss and Main last year.

Over by her desk we hung a mitten garland we got at Target several years ago and some little yard Christmas trees we made when the girls were little.

My mom made Lillie this stocking for her very first Christmas! Lola has one in her room too. They make me smile every year when we pull them out of the Christmas bin. 

One of my favorite things we did in Lillie's room this year was to hang the big pom pom wreath around her unicorns neck and then add a fuzzy stole we got from Joyfolie several years ago when Lillie was tiny and a little crown from there last year.

And now onto Lola's room! In her room we added some cozy throws, her polka dot stocking, another pom pom wreath and then some fun gold and pink nutcrackers we found at HomeGoods several years ago and a fun little truck and VW van we found there last year.

And here are the source lists for the non-holiday items in their rooms:
