Today marks two years since we moved into our house. I wanted to share a little bit of how we've made it into a home! Since I work from home, it's important for me to have a space that's inviting and inspiring. I also love making it a cozy retreat for Brett when he comes home from tour, which actually happened in the middle of taking these photos. Disclaimer: we were hosting a dinner party that night so I had fresh flowers and my house was cleaner than normal, so it had to be documented.
This is the point during the shoot when Brett had just gotten back from a show and Annie greeted him at the door! Brett and our friend Bryson of Needle + Grain built this walnut coffee table (below) together. We love it and will always have it in our home.
I've had the most luck with these snake plants, and succulents if they get enough light and barely any water. Also have you checked out the magazine Anthology? I love it and my awesome mother-in-law gifted me with a subscription. (Thanks, Mrs. Brenda!)
The living room opens up into our kitchen, below. Brett built our kitchen table that I love.
I enjoy having our wedding china out so it can be seen and used! Still love what dishes we chose. White Juliska Thread and Berry pattern and the vintage Johnson Brothers Windsor Ware. The open shelving was a house warming gift from my sweet in-laws.
From the living room through these french doors is my office. I love working from home. The built in corner cabinets are original to the house and add character to this little room. My desk, chair and lamp are from ikea. Another disclaimer: these table legs did not hold up and I'm having to find different ones. I'm also going to paint these walls grey this winter!
For the backyard we got rid of a huge shed and chain link fence, added the wooden fence, DIY fire pit area and garden. Next project is staining the deck!
Thanks for letting me share a bit of our home life! Hope you enjoyed the visit. Looking forward to sharing more next time as we complete more house projects!
