Hey friends! As you all know we recently bought a mini “fixer upper” and have been super busy with all of the updates and renovations! It’s crazy because I still don’t feel like we are completely moved in. I have learned to try and take one room at a time but it is definitely hard. I recently did my rebrand shoot in the comfort of my own home and it was amazing. Amy of Amy J Owen Photo captured the vibe so perfectly and I can’t wait to share with you guys some of the photos from the shoot!
Just because I love my letterfolk board so much! And fun fact about this green chair. It was actually given to us by Joshua’s great great Aunt. This thing is almost over 100 years old and still in great condition!
Couch: IKEA | Blanket: PCB Home | Rug: RUGSUSA | Basket: Target
The natural light in our new home is AMAZING! We used to live in a town home and we had almost zero natural light so I am loving this new space! My favorite thing to do is open the blinds throughout the day and let the sun shine in! It makes our house look so good!
You can see my 2 year review about our Ikea Ektorp here! I seriously brag about this couch all. the. time. Check out all of the reasons why I love it so much! One of the best investments we ever made!
Our sunroom! One of my favorite rooms in the house. The longterm goal for this room is for it to be a lounge room/my office. Right now, it’s my office and the natural light is amazing! Eventually, I will add some bamboo shades and a daybed/lounge furniture to make it more relaxed. The only downfall about this room is it can get super HOT in the summer because of all of the windows. I am also looking into getting the windows tinted in this room. I found out about an Atlanta Company, UHS Window Tinting and Blinds, that offers clear window tinting! UHS Window Tinting and Blinds is a locally-owned and operated company that has been in business for over thirty years. My main goal is reduce the amount of heat that gets in that room and I think getting the windows tinted is going to be perfect! If you are in the ATL area, you should check them out!
Pillow: TJ Maxx | Blanket: Target | Wall Art: Smallwoods Home | Lamp: Target
Our living room! I feel like I will keep saying this but this is also one of my favorite rooms in the house. Before we moved in, this room was completely brown and pretty dark. I remember Joshua and I spending so much time in this room before we actually moved in. We went over plans after plans. It was a little hard for Joshua to see the potential but I just could see us spending our evenings in this room and it being a place to relax and unwind at the end of a long day! All this room needed was some TLC, a coat of paint (Sherwin Williams my fav color – Alabaster) and it was ready to go! I got these pillows from TJ Maxx and they are my favorite! They are like a velvet material and I got them a little before the Fall season and I think they will transition perfectly into the holiday season!
I hope you guys enjoyed this mini house tour! Huge shoutout to Amy J Owen for taking these amazing photos and making me feel so comfortable in my own home. I can’t wait to share with you guys more updates on the Holiday House Tour!
