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.
We updated our patio for the spring by adding a lion head door knocker to our front door:
In the spring of 2015, I teamed up with The Home Depot to makeover our entire outdoor space as part of their Ultimate Patio Style Challenge!
We added a DIY slatted screen and drop cloth curtains to transform our back patio into a private outdoor "room" that has a cabana-like feel.
We swapped our dirt for AstroTurf:
We carved out a corner fire pit area complete with a DIY L-shaped bench:
We also built a floating deck, which is perfect for dining al fresco!
Our side yard had some drainage issues so we fixed those with a dry river bed:
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, and hung some gold leaf agate slice coat hangers.
We recently mounted and framed a massive tapestry, which you see below:
I love how the the space looks from our loft:
Our living room is one of our favorite rooms!
Shortly after we moved in, we turned a mid-century modern dresser into an entertainment center.
We recently purchased a new living room couch as well as some new living room chairs.
We also hung some curtains:
And added a gallery wall around our TV:
Updating our rugs changed the whole look and feel of the space!
Our living room contains a mix of big box store items as well as vintage thrifted ones.
It's a little eclectic and a little quirky but it represents us and that's what makes it our favorite! :)
Our dining room has gone through multiple changes but currently looks like this:
The only thing we have left to do is update the rug! And maybe find some head chairs for the dining table…
Our kitchen is the most finished room in our house. Shortly after we moved in, 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 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.
We hung some DIY artwork and...
Built 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.
We added some staggered wainscoting to our navy blue accent wall and built a modern console table.
I turned a military trunk into a coffee table, and bought some wingback chairs.
It's our new favorite place to hang out :)
My fiancé and I share a home office. One that has campaign inspired desks:
An eclectic gallery wall, which includes 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 space will be added soon! :)
