A Little Peek at the Freshly Painted Dining Room



Happy Saturday! Well, this week we painted our dining room Kendall Charcoal, by Benjamin Moore. It's always been one of my favorite colors (we painted our master bedroom in our last house this color and the office in Jason's house as well as a few furniture pieces) and I am happy to have a room this color now in our new house!

Here are a few little peeks and I'll have full room shots in a post hopefully tomorrow but if not then Monday!




I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'll have a detailed source list for this room when I write up the full post.

January Family Room




January is always a bit of a strange month when it comes to decorating. Once all of the Christmas decor is put away it always feels a little bit barren but it's a little too soon to add any spring or summer touches. I left our cozy knit and fur pillows and throws as well as our pom pom wreath for now seeing how they are nice additions in this winter weather, and then we added in some more cheerful touches to our mantel using some fresh seeded eucalyptus bouquets and some tulips from Trader Joe's to help make it feel a little less gloomy even though it's still quite cold and dreary outside.


















You can see more photos and get a source list for the kitchen in this post here.

The Finishing Touches on Our Kitchen Makeover (Before and Afters)



Well, except for getting rid of the light in the center of the kitchen and adding some recessed lights I think we are finally done with our kitchen makeover! The finishing touches were the beautiful pendants from Birch Lane and the bar stools. When we first moved in I knew I wanted some pendants like this but because I had a free pair that had been passed down to me from my mom I went ahead and used those at first and they worked perfectly. Once the kitchen was pretty much finished though I was excited to finally add these fabulous ones that Birch Lane was kind enough to send. I love the kind of sparkle they add and how well they coordinate with our faucet and the hardware. 

For the stools we went with the bar height so they would be higher up for the girls. They sit up there about 99% of the time, and it's so much more easier for them to be up higher. And I can still sit up there quite comfortably. These weren't the exact stools I had in mind but they were on sale and I'd really been wanting to get something more comfortable seeing how we spend so much time sitting at the peninsula so I decided to give them a try and I have to say so far we have all loved them! Much more than I anticipated. 

Here is a little reminder of where we started when we moved in:
