Pinteresting | House & Home


We're Under Contract!!!

Most of you have probably been following along with my house hunting woes for the past few months--but we finally found a home and had our offer accepted!

If you don't know what the housing market is like right now, let me enlighten you. We submitted offers on close to 10 different homes, receiving no's for every single one until now! It's crazy how quickly homes under $200,000 are flying right now...I think just about every home we looked at was under contract within 24-48 hours! Insane!

I just wish I was on the selling side of it right now! ;)

So in light of this exciting news, I thought I'd share some of my latest "House & Home" pins from Pinterest with y'all! Some of them I may even be planning to put to use in our new home:

I have been planning to paint my front door regardless of where we moved for ages now, and I think with the home we are (hopefully!) getting, navy will do just the trick! Navy is one of my favorite colors and this bright yellow forsythia door hanging is such a happy addition!

This living room is what my mid century modern dreams are made of! I love all of the shades of blue and the pops of rusty orange thrown in.

I never got the chance to really do much of a real nursery for Lucy, so right now I am torn between making her a nursery in our new home or just going for something that can be transitioned into a big girl room easily. I'll probably go with the big girl room idea (money saver), but either way I go this elegant pink and gold theme is high on the list of ideas. Right up there with Lilly Pulitzer. Decisions decisions!

 As for Parker James, he will be getting a nursery since he is so little at the start. I have an idea in my head of what I want, but I really can't fully describe it. It's sort of preppy, southern gentlemen theme with some vintage thrown in. Make sense? I'm absolutely in love with this gorgeous card catalog cabinet! The horse lamp on top reminds me of Kentucky, so there may be some equestrian pieces thrown into his nursery as well ;)

Any other Fixer Upper fans out there? I would love to visit Joanna's shop in person, but until my next trip to Texas, the online shop will have to do. This pretty wooden sign is such a great reminder and I think it would look great in the foyer--the entry seems appropriate for this phrase, doesn't it?

Now as much as I'd love my deck to look like this, it doesn't. But the stain here is such a beautiful color, I pinned it for inspiration! Such a lovely entertaining space!

One of the downsides to the home we are trying to purchase is the lack of pantry, and general kitchen space if I'm honest. Thankfully there are some crazy clever hacks out there,and this is one of them I just had to share. Use dollar store dish racks to neatly store items in that tiny square cabinet above the fridge or microwave! This blogger stored her baking sheets there, but I think I would rather use that space for things like pot and pan lids, things I don't use as often since I'm short and don't like to reach up that high ;)

I'm getting excited about all the new rooms I'll have to decorate soon and the bathrooms aren't getting neglected. I love this yellow and navy color scheme! (Sensing a theme in color schemes yet?)

What a gorgeous laundry update! I absolutely adore the idea of a bold patterned wallpaper behind the appliances! I think I may have to hold onto this idea for future reference. Love!
