New Beginnings

Its official!  We moved into our new home last Sunday.  It's been a whirlwind two weeks, but finally we are all settled in.  Most of the boxes are unpacked and now we are busy making furniture decisions, choosing paint swatches and exploring rug options.  It's going to be a really fun project for the both of us this year.  I am excited to share the progression as we go.  For now, here's a sneak peek into our abode.

This is the room you walk into through the front door.  Lots of natural light and space - perfect for entertaining.  We aren't sure if we want to put a TV over the fireplace or a just gorgeous piece of art - I'm leaning more towards art!  I'm sure you can guess where my husband is leaning towards...

This room is in the front of the house (off to the side of the room above).  For now this will be a lil office, but eventually I want to decorate this space to be a room to have coffee in the morning, read and blog of course!

Cute, eh?


  1. It's so cute! I can't wait to see what the final product looks like.

  2. convince your husband to put the tv on a piece of furniture, like a nice small but higher sideboard or console! it will look much nicer and go with your style!

  3. Kristen, seriously it is to DIE for! Next time your sister makes a road trip, I want to pack myself in her suitcase and join in the decorating, shopping and blogging fun. Congrats!

  4. Such a cute house Kristen!!!

  5. The home is great!!! I love the street appeal and the balance of trees, shrubs, windows, etc.
    The inside is super--so many nice touches. Enjoy the decorating. Jodie

  6. Congratulations! It's perfect!

    My hubby and I have been in our house almost eight years and we're still having the TV vs. ART debate.

    I think I'm gonna cave to him...finally.

    Can't wait to see you're progress.

  8. The house is so romantic, love the front door window and the front entrance stonework, the sitting room windows are divine inside and out. Can't wait to watch the house become your home, have fun with the decorating!

  9. congrats kristen...such a lovely home with so much character. can't wait to see it all dolled up!! looking forward to seeing more photos!!!


  10. Congrats Kristen. What a lovely home you have! The stonework and facade makes it look very "English Cottage". As for the tv vs art debate, maybe you could hide your tv behind a piece of art? I've seen that done before and that way you both get what you want and it'll be hidden when not in use. :)

  11. oh gosh, I'm sure u're beaming! this is a gorgeous home! adore all the architectural details!
