Halloween Home Tour

Halloween is almost here, we are soaking up all of the most festive fun of the season & pulling together all of the things we need for costumes this week! It always takes me a while to get Halloween decorations just the way I want them, and even though we aren’t even completely settled in our house yet, spider webs & skeletons have found their way into almost every room!! We are hosting a Halloween party on Friday night so I wanted to make sure everything was extra spooky just in time!! Excited to share with you our first official Halloween home tour, enjoy!!

Cannot wait to see all of your Halloween decor & costumes! Hope you are all having the most FUN and FESTIVE week!!!! XO


Our Office Before & After

I am so excited to share our home office before & afters with you today, feels like such a Monday space to share, right?! Brandon works remote so he spends a ton of time in this room, he wanted a darker green paint color, I pulled a ton of options (including some light purples that he shut down pretty quickly!) but we settled on Coney Island by Behr. It is SO pretty and we are super happy with it!! Brandon built another desk, a little longer than the one we had in here previously, so that we could use our old one for the girls coloring table in our playroom/family room (sharing that room next)! We work in here together a lot so having a ton of work space is important, mostly so all of my piles of junk don’t get too close to his tidy side.

Here was the office when we moved in, super modern with built in office furniture, an exposed ceiling (which I did sort of like but it felt off for this style of home) and super funky lighting. It was also carpeted, which we pulled up and had hardwoods laid to match the rest of the house!

And here is the office now! Dark & moody, but also super fun & functional!!

This was a really fun space to design because it is very closed off from the rest of the house so I felt like I could go a different direction with dark paint & fun accessories. We still need to find a rug (and agreeing on a rug might be the hardest accessory to ever choose for our home!) but we are so happy with how everything turned out. Another room checked off the list!!

Hope you loved this little tour!! Hoping to share a full Fall home tour in the next few weeks as we wrap up just a few more projects! Happy Monday, friends!! XO


Guest Bath Remodel

Finally, a room reveal!!! I’m going to apologize in advance for the grainy photos on this post but this is theeeee smallest little bathroom that just makes photographing impossible, even with the good camera, so these photos just don’t do it justice. This guest bathroom, which is in the back family room/guest room, was one of the ugliest before’s we have ever seen. It had brown carpet, fifty shades of beige wallpaper, outdated 90’s fixtures, and a tiny little diagonal corner shower. We were pretty excited about this space because 1. it has a cute little window so we knew it would get some good light and 2. it was an actual full bath, so when guests stay, they would have a whole space of their own! Our family room has a pull out couch & tv/fireplace, and once it’s finished it is going to be a super cozy room that we hope all of our family & friends will get to enjoy!! We spend tons of time in the family room now for movie nights, we will share that space with you very soon too!

Ok back to the bathroom, here is the before.

And our almost finished after!!!

So hard to believe it is even the same space!

We completely gutted this bathroom down to the studs to replace all of the electrical, and while we had the walls opened, we had our contractors put in a pocket door (one of the best ways to maximize space in a tiny room). We used white subway tile & marble hex tile to keep the space super light and bright, and may eventually paint the top half of the walls another color. We were able to square off the shower to make it a little bit bigger, and added a frameless glass enclosure. We used the pedestal sink from the other bathroom (the floral wallpaper one that needed a smaller sink) and an antique mirror that I found at a local flea here!

We are so happy with this before & after, and I can’t wait to keep adding to it!!!! Thanks as always for reading! XO
