i’ve been working on the house and i’m now solidly in the decorating phase. i, like half of america, have an obsession with the hgtv show “fixer upper” and joanna gaines’ style. i love neutrals so for my living room/kitchen, i went for a modern farmhouse inspired look and mixed old and new things i’ve been collecting for years. i don’t have the budget of the show but i tried. and i love how it turned out. it’s homey and comfortable. it’s also very me and showcases all the things i like: old family pieces, art, lettering, books, etc. it will be easy to add in different things over time. eventually, i want to take up the floors and put in laminate wood throughout the living room, kitchen, and laundry room. but that will have to wait. 🙂
for my bedroom, i choose a more modern flair. i fell in love with the wall color months ago and knew i’d use it in my bedroom and master bath. then, i just added in an eclectic mix of stuff including lots of pictures, white furniture, and my black & white bedding made by my mama. i love it! it’s definitely me and a good representation of my girly/modern side.
