Home Tour | Living

Long time no blog, huh. I guess I have a pretty okay 'excuse' as we have been extremely busy working on the house and figuring out where everything needs to go! In the last month, CJM has also started a new job, we've thrown a couple of get-togethers, and spent a lot of time with family and friends. It's been good to have a little break from the social media world; I mean, I only posted on Instagram like once a week a couple of times--crazy!

But back to the house: it's in no way done {I still occasionally have an internal debate about repainting the living room...again...}, but we're getting to a pretty comfortable level of done-ness. I'm sure it will be a few years until we feel everything is final once we do some bigger projects like replacing the roof and counter tops. I still need to hang pictures and art, but once our giant wedding canvases came in, the room really came together. By the way, I order all of my canvases from easycanvasprints.com ; the most amazing prices, quality, and quick shipping around!

And yes, I love gray. I'm planning on adding some natural pops of color through plants and floral arrangements, but I like to add things a little at a time and let them marinate for a while before I add anything else. I'd really love a lantern collection to add to the fireplace area with some big white candles; I am definitely a candle-aholic!

One of my favorite pieces in the living room is the antique buffet that has been in my family since the early 1900s. There is a matching china cabinet in the kitchen, and my mom still has the original dining room table in her house. Besides being totally functional and where I store all of my cake stands, silver, and large serving dishes, it's absolutely beautiful! Everyone compliments it as soon as they walk into the room.

Over the summer, I'm planning on sharing the kitchen, dining room, master bed and bath, and our outdoor living spaces. Stick around to see the rest!
