sneak peak - our home decor

We moved in on a Monday and 8 days later, on the following Tuesday, we had to leave town for work.
We needed to accomplish the majority of our unpacking, furniture placement and decorating in that short week.
And we did.
Mission accomplished!


Formal Living Room

Formal Dining Room (totally incomplete/unfinished)

Family Room

Downstairs bathroom

Guest Room #1

Guest Room #2

This year Ralph is celebrating his 10 year anniversary as my 1 and only plant!

Laundry Room

Master Bath


Family Room & Kitchen

We worked really hard and had a blast putting our house together.
A freaking blast!
So much is from our travels or pieces we've collected along the way.
And much of it is brand spankin' new too!
We absolutely love what we've done so far, but it's not even close to finished.


Next steps:
kitchen table
furnish our bonus room upstairs
install plantation shutters & roman shades
put a fence up for Cali
A kitchen table, window treatments and a fence will our next purchases... small fry needs to be able to run free!


  1. Everything looks so pretty! Glad you are happy with how it all turned out!

    Ps We now have a Cheerwine billboard in my town :)

  2. Is Cali a "runner" as in a run a way -er if she isn't fenced in ?

  3. Your new home looks beautiful! Looks like y'alls hard work paid off!!!

  4. Wow, you guys are good. That's a lot to do in a week! Everything looks awesome!

  5. first and foremost - i'm in love with your house. lust is a sin, but i'm sorry, i can't help it.

    second - i don't know if it's because it's still fairly early, but i literally laughed out loud reading "small fry needs to run free". as a matter of fact, i'm laughing while i'm typing this. my, oh, my.
