House Tour


We moved into our new house a little over 2 years ago and while none of the rooms are 100% done, we've made the following progress on turning our house into a home.



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:











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 boyfriend 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 rooms will be added as they're worked on! :)

  9. You guys are so sweet! Thank you all so much :)

    Erin - I got the bed from Joss & Main last year. I've seen it pop up for sale on their site since then but in case you don't catch it, it's the nail button tufted wingback bed by Skyline Furniture. Amazon sells it and so does Wayfair. It's a great bed despite what the reviews say but it did take us over 3 hours to put together so be prepared for that if you do decide to get it! If not, Sarah M. Dorsey has a great tutorial on how to build a similar headboard here: http://www.sarahmdorseydesigns.blogspot.com/2012/04/diy-headboard-complete.html

  15. Lovely! We have also been in our house for just one year. It can be frustrating to not have it all done but it will get there eventually. I am swooning over your navy wall in the loft. I want to do that in our basement behind our brown leather couch.

  40. Holy crap are you great at styling!! I have restyled my coffee table about 400 times and it still looks awful in comparison to yours. I think I'm just going to buy a new table at this point and start over. Would you think about creating a blog post that offers some tips on styling vignettes for us arrangement challenged folk? If you already have, I hope someone points me in the right direction because I didn't see one. Thank you for sharing your awesome home! I subscribed. :)
