I was talking to @suzannahstanley the other day on the @yourhomestorypodcast about our front porch. i was saying that the front porch is finally at a “pretty” state. Everything has been updated (except brick painting - if we eventually decide to do that). Swipe left for the porch evolution. ✨ BUT, we weren’t USING the space. It basically just looked cute and welcoming and that’s it. Anyways, we started talking about why we weren’t using the space. Through our conversation, I realized that we don’t use the space because we don’t like to sit on a hard bench to relax. It’s an ideal spot to hang with a drink in hand because we have a big, manicured front yard. Deer hang out and we have big trees. It’s pretty and sits off the road. But, we just don’t use it. That sparked some thinking about chairs and how to make the space more inviting. After striking out on finding chairs for the space online, I decided to pull two of our outdoor dining chairs to the front and try them. They totally worked! We still have four chairs out on the back patio so that works for us too! Moral of the story: shop your house?! 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 But seriously, think hard about why you aren’t using a space and think about how you could remedy that. I really believe that our spaces should be lived in, should be loved and used. They should be more than just a place to hold decor. 💗 Ps. On the podcast this week, this episode went live... all about porches! It’s a good one. You should tune in. 😉 #currenthomeview • • • #frontporch #frontporchdecor #frontporchliving #myfrontporch #bhghome #bhgstylemaker #ispyraddesign #darlinghome #lovelyliving #diynetwork #smpliving #lovewhereyoudwell

Holy moly, let’s give it up to the power of a can of paint. 😍 Can you believe you can change a room with just paint?! I think this 💯 proves that you can. ✨✨ @withinthegrove thanks for sharing this before/after on #currenthomeview. My husband might come home soon to a newly painted master bedroom. 😉 • • • #painting #roominspiration #roomtransformation #bedroommakeover #bedroomtransformation #darkpaint #blackpaint #bedroomdecor #bedroominspo #bedroomstyling

✨✨Pure magic✨✨ This is pretty much my dream space. To me, it has it all... warmth, freshness, a lived-in feel, the yin/yang of modern and rustic. THE TALL CEILINGS. I think 10ft ceilings would be on the top list of wants if we were buying again (which, btw, I found an amazing house yesterday that I’m pretty tempted by but it has a pool which we don’t want 😭... should I show you in stories though?). But, back to the ceiling height. We have 8ft ceilings in most of our house and they are sooooo low. What are your best hacks for faking a taller ceiling? Ps. This photo for #currenthomeview is by @jultompa and she’s a new account I found. Her whole feel is dreamy, just dreamy. • • • #interior125 #catchinglight #ggathome #kitchencabinets #interior4u #interior_delux #kitchensofinstagram #kitchenisland #thenewbohemians #urbanjunglebloggers #kinfolkhome #nordikspace #whiteinterior #darlinghome #lovelyliving #kitchen #smpliving

A few friends and I have decided to bring you more than just pretty decor today. We want to share more about who we are, more about the people behind the pretty home. We want to CONNECT. Real connection. So, here I am. It took fifty tries to get two photos… here’s your best two. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ Ha. I started my blogging journey about five years ago. I was completely inspired to transform every single part of my house. I was energized and just went for all types of projects. We DIY’d all the time and it fit that part of our life (young kid - early bedtimes and naps, etc.). Fast forward to now, I still want to transform my house (but more like tweak things here and there or hire out projects). I want to live in the moment, not be tied to a renovation. I don’t want to spend nights and weekends DIYing, looking for the best deal on countertops or trying to figure out how to get a dumpster delivered to our crazy uphill driveway. I want to work in a job that I like (I still like blogging), sit on the back patio with a margarita, plan our next vacation (or even MOVE out of the country), just be happy in the moment. Less doing (less DIYing + less buying stuff). So, where does that leave my business? That’s definitely a question that I’ve been toying with this year. If you’ve noticed a lack in projects, this is why. Life is messy behind the squares, it’s not always what it seems. Right now, this is my #truth and where I’m at. If you’ve been following along for a long time or are just new here today, I’m glad you’re here. Who knows what next week will bring, but I’m glad you’re here. Now, #girlshowyoface and join this fun crew today (and in the future)! I love this hashtag and can’t wait to follow along with it to keep promoting more real, more authenticity. . . Check out all my friends today as they are sharing their truth, their face and their lives. . . . @arrowsandbow @biggerthanthethreeofus @brepurposed @brimoysa @cynthia_harper_ @darlingiloveit @everydavismoments @francois_et_moi @graceinmagnolias • • • #becausecommunity #communityovercompetition #communityfirst #authenticity #authentic💯 #behindthesquare #reallife #truth #pullingbackthecurtain #livingauthentically

Just placed an order for three more of the wood-look frames that I have in my hallway. They are on sale for $15 which is a STEAL. When they arrive, should I do stories on cutting the picture frame mats?✂️📐 Also, Luke and I are talking about going ahead and having this bedroom and Greyson’s bedroom flooring done (goodbye carpets and hello hardwoods). I just need to get on board with going to purchase it and hiring the installer, etc. Planning for how to manage all those things (having the flooring delivered, moving all the furniture, taking off the baseboards, ripping the carpet out, having the installers come, having them lay it, having them stain and seal the floors, letting them dry and then moving everything back in)… it’s exhausting. Hence, the fact that I’m still thinking about it Ha. Functional upgrades though… those are the biggest bang for your buck. Now, someone motivate me so I’ll actually get it done. 🤪 #currenthomeview • • • #the_real_houses_of_ig #stylishhome #homeandliving #myoklstyle #ihavethisthingwithtextiles #ihavethisthingwithplants #vintageinterior #decorinspiration #myhomesense #hgtvhome #abmplantlady #interiorwarrior #inspireushomedecor #housetohome #roomforgirl #hometohave

Happy Saturday! I haven’t posted for a week and it’s been the best little break. Wondering if I should implement a screen free day for myself each week?! 🤔 Do any of you do that? Would love to hear your thoughts below 👇🏼 ⁣ps. I’m still planning on framing this huge piece... sometime. 🤪 ⁣ ⁣ #currenthomeview #cljsquad #inmydomaine #lonnyliving #interiormilk #flashesofdelight #mykindredabode #sodomino #purposeinstyle #habitatandhome #mycreativeinterior #passionforinterior #scandiboho #moderncasual #roomhints #myhometrend #mymodernlook #abmathome #darlingweekend

We don’t always have “mom wins” so I’m celebrating them when I can. Two mom wins (or hacks) that I implemented right before school let out for the summer: 1) The words “I’m bored” or anything similar to that were NOT ALLOWED. If said, a chore would be given - because don’t we all agree that there are ALWAYS things that we can’t get to that need to be done? He said he was “bored” just once this summer and as soon as it came out of his mouth… his eyes got big and he realized what he said. LOL. 🙌🏻 WIN #1!! Win 2) I bought a simple handwriting improvement book for him to work through this summer and it’s been great for him. They are manageable assignments with words of affirmation (how great is that?!) as part of the assignment. Woot woot! ✨🙌🏻 These aren’t huge wins or anything, but I’m pretty happy with both. Mommas, we have to celebrate when we can, right?! What type of “mom win” have you had lately? . . ps. Did you notice my new, gorgeous light from @troylighting (sponsored)? I’m smitten… just smitten. I think the texture is spot on for this space. What do you think? . . #troylighting #hvlgambassador #currenthomeview #momwin #boymom #livethelittlethings #liveauthentic #childhoodunplugged #diningroom #builtin #benchseat #the_real_houses_of_ig #stylishhome #makehomeyours #mypinterest #boymomlife #boymom💙

Before and afters are my favorite and I especially love dramatic paint before and afters. For a big impact, paint is so inexpensive and you can really change the look of your space. Also, for those of you who have a window behind your headboard, look at the photo arrangement on each side! Love the look and think it works so great in this space. @quinn.luu thanks for sharing your gorgeous space on #currenthomeview! It’s definitely inspiring me this morning! • • • #prettyspaces #painttransformation #darkwalls #darkpaint #bedroomideas #bedroominspo #bedroomgoals #bedroomlove #gallerywall #apartmenttherapy #bohodecor #bohostyle #lovewhereyoudwell

I’ve followed @whiteshantyathome for quite awhile. When she tagged #currenthomeview on her living room, I knew I had to share. Her house story is so cool! Basically, they’ve made their home out of the top level of a warehouse (I think I got details right). Getting a house to feel warm and inviting with huge ceilings and some unique challenges (like loft spaces) is quite the feat. This space evokes all the warm, fuzzy feelings, right?! ⁣ •⁣ Keep tagging your photos with #currenthomeview.

I haven’t shared a #currenthomeview for awhile and there are so many incredible spaces tagged! I absolutely adore this makeover (swipe left) by @thesweetbeast. 😱 Did your jaw hit the floor as well?! Seriously, so good. Pay attention to the tile and you’ll see that the flooring and wall tile are both original. These are my favorite types of before/afters! • • • #bathroommakeover #bathroomreno #bathroomgoals #bathroominspo #bathroomtiles #charm #originaldetails #vintageliving #tilelove #smploves

Good Morning, Friends! I’m excited about today. I’ve got blog stuff do to all morning but then, I’m meeting a friend for lunch and then getting to see her historical home renovation that’s currently going on. I’ve seen snippets so far and I can tell that it’s going to be good! Then, hello… three day weekend! Yay! Hoping to find that sweet spot between relaxing and a few projects. What about you? Any amazing weekend plans? • • • • #midcenturymodern #vintageliving #mywestelm #homemademodernhome #cljsquad #inmydomaine #lonnyliving #interiormilk #flashesofdelight #mykindredabode #sodomino #purposeinstyle #habitatandhome #mycreativeinterior #passionforinterior #scandiboho #moderncasual #roomhints #myhometrend #mymodernlook #abmathome #darlingweekend #carpendaughterpeepmyreno

Let’s talk about LEGOs or any other small toys that you want to curse at when you step on. Plus, read on below for a Home Depot Giveaway! I’ve always been a momma who supports a big Lego collection. My kiddo took to them very early and he has an insane amount of them. I think they are amazing in so many ways but I don’t think they are amazing on the floor, stacked in plastic crates and overfilling all the random containers that we threw at them. I’d been trying to think of a solution that wouldn’t cost a fortune, would work for our family long-term (like, when we are past the Lego stage) and would not be see-through plastic bins. I was looking for something that felt like a natural fit with my home style. To get all those boxes checked (especially the budget-friendly one) was pretty challenging, but I think we arrived at a good solution. We are not only organizing Legos in these bins but we also have books and creations in them as well. I’d say we in SUCH A BETTER place than the BEFORE (swipe left). I’ll add a swipe up to My blog post to share how we organized, what these bins are and ideas to help you solve your Lego (or other toy) problems. • • Now, the giveaway. I’d like to give (1) lucky winner a $100 Home Depot gift card. You can purchase some of these bins or a tool of your choice… or buy lots of plants. I just want to give someone a boost in whatever project you want to tackle next. TO ENTER: “Like” this post and tag a friend who might want to enter. Giveaway ends 5/15 at 8pm central.

Soaking in the weekend with a minimal “to do” list. I’m one of those people who have a hard time relaxing at home, but I excel at relaxing when I’m surrounded by water. 🤪 We had our first lake day yesterday and although, we are all a bit sunburned... it was the best. Hope you all are enjoying the weekend so far! 👊🏻 #currenthomeview • • • #weekendvibes #morningsathome - #vintagerug #hgtvmagazine #stellarspaces #pocketofmyhome #mypinterest #mybhg #styleithappy #designsponge #midcenturymodern #myscandinavianhome #sageliving #kinfolk #imsomartha #elledecor #howyouhome #Lindsayhillloves #iheartthishaven #neutraldecor #countrylivingmag #designblogger #everydayibt #livesimply

It’s funny how one small change that gets you closer to where you envision your space to be also seems to make you hyperaware of the pieces in your space that aren’t contributing to your vision. Does that make sense at all? This space of ours, definitely always feels like a one step forward, but two steps back type of space. Enjoying the forward steps at least though, so there’s that. LOL. 🤪 • • On another note, I finally published the blog post sharing all my good tips for selling on Facebook Marketplace (how to minimize frustration and actually get things sold). I’ll link the post today in my stories.

It’s raining right now, so I’m seriously considering crawling back into this bed with a good book. I’ve been SO lucky lately with my book choices. Over the past week, I read Becoming by Michelle Obama and The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons. I really enjoyed both of them. Sometimes, I go on streaks with good books and then I have a few duds. I’m that type of person that can’t stop reading the duds though, like once I start… I won’t stop reading it. I have some strange issue with stopping a book halfway through. Anyways, what good books have you read lately? I only have about 250 on my “to read” list on Goodreads, so I need to add some more. 😂 • • ps. I’m still itching to change this space a bit. I have two different sets of bedding that I love and just can’t decide on. Should I poll it on stories this weekend? • • • #interior125 #catchinglight #ggathome #bohemianhome #interior4u #interior_delux #mybohemianabode #houseplantclub #thenewbohemians #midcentury #vintagemodern #kinfolkhome #nordikspace #whiteinterior #ispyraddesign #darlinghome #lovelyliving #diynetwork #smpliving #lovewhereyoudwell #midcenturystyle

✨✨My foyer makeover is live on the blog and I’m pretty smitten with it. I made the space over in 2017 for the ORC and although, it was so much better than where I started... I didn’t love it. A few tweaks, including this beauty from @lumensdotcom ( #lumens_partner) made all the difference. I’m a firm believer in not adding “stuff” to use as decor unless it has a story or means something to you. For me, that means, it takes waaaaaaayyy longer to curate a space BUT, that’s part of the fun! Add pieces to your home that are part of your story, pieces that make you happy. Skip the pieces that are just decor and you’ll end up with a home that’s uniquely you! Ok, hit the link in my profile today and tell me what you think of my foyer reveal! ☺️☺️ #currenthomeview • • • #rshome #sunsetmag #smmakelifebeautiful #actualhomesofinstagram #apartmenttherapy #ybhdiy #interiorjunkie #doingneutralright #homesohard #interiorwarrior #ourtruehaven #fromwhereistand #ahomemadehome #myhousebeautiful #hyggehome #interior123 #foyer

I don’t want a generic looking home. I don’t want a home that looks like I cleaned out Target or Ikea. But more than that, I want a home that feels collected, feels intentional and has interesting ‘moments’ whether that be with paint, textiles, plants or art. I’ve found myself more and more inspired by homes that I can’t quite define what it is about the space that I love, what speaks to me and what draws me in. All I know is that I have a collection of these images and today, I wanted to share one of them with you. @theinsidecollective shared this sweet corner for #currenthomeview. It’s one of those spaces that you just keep coming back to. You take more and more in every time you see it and yet, still, I can’t put my finger on what it is that draws me in so much. All I know is that I love it, I absolutely love it. • • • • • #hgtvmagazine #stellarspaces #pocketofmyhome #mypinterest #mybhg #styleithappy #designsponge #myscandinavianhome #sageliving #kinfolk #imsomartha #elledecor #howyouhome #Lindsayhillloves #iheartthishaven #neutraldecor #countrylivingmag #designblogger #everydayibt #livesimply #quietmoment #hallwayinspiration #stylinginspiration

To say this view is my favorite right now would be a major understatement. ✨✨ If you’ve stuck through all the stories on trying to build the 8ft x 5ft frame on this, you should win an award. Let’s just say that sometimes, DIY can really be annoying. BUT, when the end is good... you forget all the annoying parts. Well, mostly forget them anyways. #currenthomeview • • • #ispymoderndiy #hgtvmagazine #stellarspaces #pocketofmyhome #mypinterest #mybhg #styleithappy #designsponge #myscandinavianhome #sageliving #kinfolk #imsomartha #elledecor #howyouhome #Lindsayhillloves #iheartthishaven #neutraldecor #countrylivingmag #designblogger #everydayibt #livesimply

Doing things by yourself without extra sets of hands can be difficult but it CAN BE DONE! I used to struggle with what height to hang light fixtures and art when I was by myself because you can’t visualize what the height will look like. It’s easy when someone is around, because you have them hold the light or art and then you take a step back to determine what height works. BUT, here’s a hack when you are by yourself. Set your phone camera on a timer with burst mode and prop your phone up to shoot the space that you are working on. Press the shoot button and run to the shot (see mine here from two different angles) and hold up your fixture. If I like the height, I install. If it’s too high or too low, then I just go through the process again until I do like it. This is my “go to” method for doing things on my own. Now, what do you all think about my beautiful new fixture from @troylighting (sponsored)? I’m freaking in love with it. I’ll give you a swipe-up on stories today so you can see the details. ✨✨ So tell me, are you doing the camera time hack yet? • • • • #troylighting #hvlgambassador #the_real_houses_of_ig #stylishhome #homeandliving #myoklstyle #decorinspiration #myhomesense #hgtvhome #abmplantlady #vogueliving #interiorwarrior #inspireushomedecor #housetohome #roomforgirl #hometohave #currenthomeview

I’d be happy to do Spring cleaning if that meant we could have weather in the 40-50s. 🤣 I’m actually one of those weird people that does like all the seasons that we have here in Missouri. But, I’m over winter at this point. We had a few really nice days and it made me spoiled and then poof, we are back to ice and snow. 😬 ⁣ •⁣ Back to cleaning though... we’ve had our kitchen shelves for about three years now so I thought it was time to talk about how I clean them. It’s one of my most frequently asked questions! Get all the details on my blog post #linkinbio.

Over the weekend, I took every rug in the house to the entryway and tried it out. Not that any of them fit, but I was just trying to see what different colors, textures and lengths looked like. Then, I spent the next hour… putting them all back because I didn’t like any of them. Please tell me that I’m not the only one who makes messes and doesn’t really accomplish anything in the end! 😭😭 But, I am making progress on my dining room table makeover. 🤞🏼🤞🏼 Will share more on stories later today.

Family photos... let’s talk about them. Personally, I love seeing our photos on the wall. I used to have a big gallery display in the loft in our entry and it made me smile everyday. Now, I have an oversized brass mirror there and I do think it looks more aesthetically pleasing, BUT,... am I aiming for more aesthetically pleasing or to have something that makes me smile just by seeing it? To be honest, it’s amazing when it can be both but if you have to pick... it’s hard. Our hallway, swipe left for a closeup of the DIY photo mats, checks both the boxes for me. 💗💗But, as of right now, this is the only place I have family photos. I’m looking to add more though. Help inspire me, where do you have them in your house? • • • #familyphotos #photowall #gallerywall #travelgallery #interior125 #catchinglight #ggathome #bohemianhome #interior4u #interior_delux #mybohemianabode #thenewbohemians #kinfolkhome #nordikspace #greypaint #ispyraddesign #darlinghome #lovelyliving #diynetwork #smpliving #lovewhereyoudwell #graywalls

I’ve been itching for a few small changes in our bedroom, mainly a few changes that add more of a relaxed vibe (it’s summer, you know). I don’t know about you, but a lot of the time, I just want a small change - aka, minimal work involved. I like my space, my bedroom feels good but sometimes, it just needs a small refresh. I’ve been able to partner with @kirklands this year ( #ad), and I’m so enjoying their products. There seems to be something new every time I look and the pieces I gravitate to are a “look for less” dupe of some of the higher priced items that I’ve found elsewhere and loved but couldn’t afford. So, if you are looking for blue lumbars with that gorgeous natural material type texture, look no further. I’ll drop a link in my stories today for you to check them out. I was thinking that these (if you love blue like me) would be perfect for many different styles. I tend to say my style is a mix of classic, vintage and mid-century modern but these would pair well with a modern farmhouse or even coastal vibe too. Curious to hear, what style term do you most closely associate your house style with? I get asked about my style often and I tend to ramble in person because I don’t really have a great answer.

Did you see my wood plaque project in stories last week? If not, I shared that I was working on a new project and staining wood plaques. Here’s what I was working on. ✨✨ After years’ of asking, my dad finally *loaned* (a forever loan, I hope 😉) me a bunch of antlers. I hope to eventually add to the wall as I find some at antique stores, garage sales, etc. I kept thinking that I’d wallpaper the antler wall (before I had the antlers) but now, I think the antlers are adding just the right amount of texture. Thoughts? In other news, I installed the exact same light in here that we have in our kitchen. It’s from @lumensdotcom (ad). More changes coming to this space soon (like actually getting the threshold in on the floor to the laundry room, trim to the laundry room door, two new rugs and a table that’s been on my wishlist for years!). I’m excited! Slowly, but surely... the space that’s my least favorite in our house (it’s the darkest and has a ridiculous amount of doors -7!), is coming together. 👊🏻 #currenthomeview • • • • #ispymoderndiy #the_real_houses_of_ig #stylishhome #homeandliving #myoklstyle #ihavethisthingwithtextiles #ihavethisthingwithplants #vintageinterior #decorinspiration #myhomesense #hgtvhome #inspireushomedecor #housetohome #roomforgirl #hometohave #antlers #gallerywall #lumens_partner #vintagedecor #midcenturydecor #abmplantlady #vogueliving #interiorwarrior

Sometimes, all a room needs is a whole lot of freshness (paint, decor, lights, etc). When a space has good bones, that’s the absolute best. This week on the podcast, we are chatting all about Suzannah’s (@suzannahstanley) dining room reveal. SWIPE LEFT for the before.

The dishes are drying and the kitchen is finally closed for the day. I’m ready to settle in on the couch with a new book (and maybe a few Girl Scout cookies). 😋 #currenthomeview • • • #the_real_houses_of_ig #stylishhome #homeandliving #myoklstyle #kitchenshelves #ihavethisthingwithplants #vintageinterior #decorinspiration #myhomesense #hgtvhome #vintagedecor #midcenturydecor #abmplantlady #vogueliving #interiorwarrior #inspireushomedecor #housetohome #roomforgirl #hometohave #liveauthentically #myhappyplace #kitchenstyle

I started back on BBG workouts yesterday and I can barely move this morning. I’m OLD guys, seriously. Ha. How many days does it take to form a habit? Is it 30 days? If so, only 29 to go until... I’m excited about working out everyday, right?! 😜🤞🏼 • • ps. I have stacks of books underneath this tv in our bedroom… it hides the messy cords. Midcentury modern furniture is my favorite yet the pieces sit so far off the floor that it’s hard to manage those pesky cords. I’ve embraced the book look though so that’s a win.

We do lots of projects backwards over here. We do them according to what we can afford, not what makes the most sense when it comes to being efficient with our time. For example, let’s talk about our eat-in kitchen. When we first moved in, it had blue wallpaper and an ugly gold chandelier. The bones of the space were fine, yet dated. We didn’t have the budget to replace the flooring or the stair railing, yet I didn’t want to wait four years with the space as it was. So, we started freshening it up. If there’s anything you take away from me, take away this… You CAN BE HAPPY with a space even if it’s not your dream space. You CAN BE HAPPY with progress. SWIPE LEFT to see. The first round of updates we did in this space included building the bench (without trim and with a gray upholstery job), planking the walls and adding lighting and art. The second round of updates to this space included adding leather cushions to the banquette, trimming out the bench (this made the bench look so much nicer!), modernizing the railings and have new flooring installed. Is the version of the eat-in kitchen now better than what I had before? Yes! But, I was happy with the before too! So, let’s stop thinking that we have to completely overhaul a space to be happy with it. Let’s look at little things that we can improve to take baby steps to that bigger change that we want to eventually get to. ps. You all know that I’ve been working on this space even today (issues with my kitchen table top and a few other tweaks). I’m still happy with it but even now, it’s fun to take baby steps to progress. ✨ • • • • #woodfloors #woodflooring #currenthomeview #shareyourhomestories #interior125 #catchinglight #ggathome #bohemianhome #interior4u #interior_delux #mybohemianabode #houseplantclub #thenewbohemians #urbanjunglebloggers #kinfolkhome #nordikspace #whiteinterior #ispyraddesign #darlinghome #lovelyliving #diynetwork #smpliving #lovewhereyoudwell

Now —> When we 1st moved in. I knew I would never use a desk in the kitchen. After living with it for a year, I knew that it needed to go. It was a catch-all for EVERYTHING. I think getting rid of the desk was one of the smartest decisions we made in the kitchen. The second was keeping the desk top and having it cut in half so that I had matching countertops for the cabinets that would flank the stove. We determined the size of the cabinets that flanked the stove by the granite piece that came off the desk. It was a super BUDGET-FRIENDLY move. So, yep, this view… I just love it. And, I love it even more recently thanks to the lighting upgrade. @hudsonvalleylighting for the win! Still gushing over those sconces and will be for quite some time, so don’t judge me. =) (Sponsored) • • • • #hudsonvalleylighting #hvlgambassador #backsplash #kitchendesign #kitchendetails #the_real_houses_of_ig #stylishhome #homeandliving #myoklstyle #decorinspiration #myhomesense #hgtvhome #vintagedecor #vogueliving #interiorwarrior #kitchenrenovation #inspireushomedecor #housetohome #kitchenlove #roomforgirl #hometohave #kitchensofinstagram

My #currenthomeview from last night. Nights that include leftovers warming on the stove with only one pot are my favorite. 😂🙌🏻 Anyone else embrace those less messier kitchen nights? • • Ps. Also, I totally owe you guys two blogs posts on lighting (scale and details on lightbulbs). One is coming this week, promise! These gorgeous beauties are from @hudsonvalleylighting.
