12 New House Favorites

Happy Friday, Friends!  Thanks for all of your sweet messages, comments and emails regarding my Moving is Hard post that went up earlier this week.  You're the best and I really appreciated your kind words.  We are excited for the 3 day weekend ahead and the prospect of snow in the forecast for two different days as long as the temps stay low.

I have a really fun post for you today.  I am going to give you some sneak peeks into our new house.  I can't wait to show you 12 FAVORITE spots around the house.

1 // Subway tile

I'm loving the gray subway tile backsplash I picked out.  It goes so well with the granite.

2 // Kitchen Table

We ordered this back on Black Friday and it came in this week.  It's beautiful.  Super sturdy and super nice.  It's got a leaf to add and we're waiting on a bench to arrive for some additional seating when we host.

3 // Ruggable Rugs

I ordered 2 Ruggable rugs for our house.  We're happy with both.  This is the runner for the kitchen.  Once I wash and live with them a little longer, I'll give you my full review of them.

4 // Mud Room

I always wanted a mud room and this built in area is SO nice.  Each kid has a hook, a spot for their shoes, backpacks and a bench to sit on when they put on their shoes.  I've got some plans to finish up this space with storage containers so stay tuned.

5 // Walk in Pantry

This is still a work in progress, but I love this space.  It's wonderful to have a place to store fragile serving items as well as all the practical pantry things.  I smile every time I walk in here.  We have a smaller, snack pantry in the kitchen where I keep all of our salty snacks, treats, etc.

6 // Lemon Love

I've got lemony plans for my laundry room!  Right now I'm gathering supplies and will eventually pull everything together.

7 // Country Views

We are loving the farm filled views all around us.  We have such pretty sunrises and sunsets.

 8 // Master Shower

Our shower is the dreamiest.  It's a major upgrade from our last master bath.

9 // Entryway

This area is a work in progress, but I just love this spot.  My Fiddle Leaf Figs seem happy here and my new table looks like it was made for this spot!

10 // Window Seat

Our green recliners seem really happy upstairs in the family room.

11 // Pearl & Penny

These two seem really cozy in our new house.  They've figured out the best snoozing spots to avoid toddler hands and most nights I find them snuggling in our bed.  Sweet sisters inspecting our new couch.

12 // New Sectional

We got a new sectional for the upstairs family room.  This neat upstairs family room really sold us on the house.  We've got big plans for it to be a really fun, cozy family hang out spot.  The new couch is humongous and so so comfy.  Our whole family and more can easily fit on it for movie nights.  I'm so thankful it shipped in quickly.  We ordered it two weeks ago and were prepared to have to wait a while to get it.  Thankfully, Ashley Furniture came through quickly for us.  What a blessing!

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of some of our favorite spots!  Have a happy, long weekend!

  1. That shower looks amazing! Love seeing the new house. Yes, I may be a bit biased but farm sunsets are the best! Have a great weekend!

  2. Thank you for all the peeks at your new home - I am SO happy for you!! It's so fun to see the new pieces and the familiar ones filling out the spaces. This looks like the perfect place for your family of 5 (and the kitties!) to grow, with the mudroom, family room (love it!), big eating area and all those 5 star Indiana views. <3

  3. So beautiful! I love your new house! That pantry is fabulous and so it everything else! Looove your new sectional. We are sofa shopping right now and it’s stressful!

  4. Awww! You have a beautiful home. I can already see that you've put your mark on it and are making it your own. I look forward to your review of Ruggable. I'm intrigued by them, but a little wary. Also, that walk-in pantry...swoon!! And an upstairs family room, where all the kid clutter/toys/mess/fun can be contained away from the more "public" areas...the stuff of dreams. So happy for you all; it looks like a fantastic fit.

  5. Can't wait to see your lemony laundry room, what a cute idea!!

    Love the way you can store your breakables in your pantry. Mine are in my basement but I think I'd use them more in my pantry! My upper shelf has art stuff, play sand, etc...

  6. I am OBSESSED with your shower!!!!! Enjoy!!!!!

  7. Your house has some gorgeous spaces!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
