It's been 16 months since we moved into our new house and while none of the rooms are 100% done, we've made the following progress on turning our house into a home in the past 365+ days.
We don't spend a lot of time out on our front patio but we wanted it to look nice and inviting for guests so we made a wooden monogram letter, added some modern planters, a geometric lantern, and a colorful doormat.
Our foyer is the first space you see when you walk in our front door.
It's still a work in progress but so far we've transformed our door from builder boring into Big Bang Theory inspired, added a pelmet box to our sidelight window, hung some gold leaf wood slice coat hangers and some very large abstract art.
We've also added a bench for seating and are currently contemplating runner rug options.
We're in the process of saving up for new living room furniture which means we've been working with what we have in the mean time.
Shortly after moving in, we turned a mid-century modern dresser into an entertainment center.
Our dining room has gone through multiple changes but currently looks like this:
We made a frame for the crystal art that we hung above our steal of a deal console table:
Our kitchen is the most finished room in our house. That being said, we hung metal letters above our cabinets, swapped out the builder basic lighting, painted our kitchen island, and added some barstools (which we recently replaced).
Our powder room has been painted and has also been updated with a new light fixture, a new mirror, a new towel ring and toilet paper holder, as well as a few finishing accessories.
Its also been painted and been updated with some DIY artwork and...
Some DIY chunky wooden floating shelves:
The hallway at the top of our stairs gives you the option of going left or right which means that anything we put on the blank wall needed to be narrow enough to walk past.
We had originally built a console table for the space but then we changed our minds and decided to replace it with some chunky wooden floating shelves:
Our loft slowly started to come together after I was gifted a Chesterfield sofa. I painted a navy blue accent wall and hung some linen drapes.
I turned a military trunk into a coffee table, made some typographic art, bought some wingback chairs, and a rug.
My boyfriend and I share a home office. One that has campaign inspired desks, an eclectic gallery wall, a DIY art piece, and a light fixture I installed myself.
It also has geek chic office shelves that display our mixed collection of accessories and action figures.
So that's where we are today! Additional rooms will be added as they're worked on! :)
