House Decorating {Inspiration}

With the front part of the house pretty much finished after the remodel, decorating has been in full swing!  I have almost everything done, just adding in things here & there & changing up things that I don't love as much as I thought I did at first.  I've been promising a house update for a while now & while today I still don't have that post for you, I do have a peek into some of what has sparked my ideas for decorating our home.  About that house tour... I promise it will be live on this blog NEXT WEEK!

First up, is the formal dining room.  It's the first room to your immediate left when you walk in the front door.  I knew I wanted this room to be bright & fresh.  Have some fun to it & be inviting as well.  I envision a many of meals around our dining room table (that doesn't exist yet) & a lot of memories to be made there as well!

Next up, is the living room.  Our living room is probably the first room that everyone sees walking through the door.  Same as with our dining room & really our whole house, I want it to be bright & fresh & most importantly, welcoming.  My overall color pallet for the house is neutral browns, tans, & cream colors with various green accents throughout.  My wish for our living room is that our guest feel at home enough to kick off their shoes & lay back in the recliners.

Last, but certainly not least... the heart of our home is the kitchen & breakfast nook.  With dark wood cabinets all around in our kitchen, I feel it's important to bring out the color here.  Currently, there are no decorations on the walls but, these things below have given me much inspiration!  I already have a large fork & spoon that I picked up a few years ago at Hobby Lobby.  I envision our kitchen, like most, being the focal point at friends & family gatherings.  Really, it already has become that & I love it!
