It's been so fun to start working on house projects and start hunting around for things we love to put in the house. We aren't buy tons of stuff to fill the house. We are slowly, but surely picking out things we love to make our house feel like our HOME.
We bought couches when we got married... 12 years ago. We loved the bright red color and they served us well for all those years. We sold the big couch when we were moving this last time so we just have a love seat now. We're going to put that in the play room and knew we needed a sofa upgrade for our family room. We searched around town at furniture shops, looked online and then opted to order a couch from macys.com. It had great reviews, was on a super close out sale and we got to use coupons and discounts to make it really affordable. I'm not sure where it's going in the room just yet, but I'm excited to have a BIG couch for us all to snuggle on.
We went with a really neutral couch, gray walls and are bringing in color with the pillows on the couch and curtains. I've yet to find fabric I love, but this is my color inspiration for the entire space. I'd been on the hunt for a pillow or fabric that really spoke to me for this room. I was shopping at TJ Maxx and this set of pillows nearly jumped into my cart. They were PERFECT and it was a completely different color palette than I was thinking for this room. It just seem to call my name. We have green wing back recliners that bring in the green color perfectly and our walls are gray. I ended up getting 12 or so pillows to add to the couch so I'll have to snap a picture of them all set up when that happens. They're the prettiest blues and yellows.
We went with lavender walls and are going to work on finding big girl bedding and curtains for her space. They'll be pastels, golds and vintage elements in her room. The walls are really pretty and purple isn't a color that I really loved before Olive decided it was her favorite color. Kevin and my dad did a great job on her room.
We are going with a fun, colorful nursery. Think nerdy book worm :) I've been collecting things for his walls and his bedding and I can't wait to pull it all together. He'll be getting Olive's nursery furniture once we move.
I'm still pondering all of the other rooms, but will keep you posted as we start making progress. I'm still thinking about an area rug, curtains, tv placement, book shelves, a bench, a coffee table, etc to pull this room all together. I can't wait to have a mantle to decorate again :)
What's your favorite project we're working on??

Any advice on where to buy bar stools? I need 3
Lastly, where do you like to buy fabric for curtains or premade curtains?
