House Ideas

As April gets closer my ideas and color schemes for the house are coming together.  We are hoping to start working in the house by the end of February.  Our most significant project will be in the kitchen.

I am loving this color scheme in the kitchen.  I love the subway tile back splash.  We are going to attempt to DIY the counter tops with concrete (wish us luck!).  As far as flooring we are hoping there will be hardwood under the linoleum that is there, but I doubt that will happen, so we will most likely be picking a tile.

In our bedroom we have chosen to go with a palette of sage greens and greys with some blue and brown mixed in here and there.

The walls will be a color similar to the one in the middle and we will incorporate grey curtains and striped bedding.

I will of course mix in some flowered or patterned pillows.  The rug that will be in the room is actually very similar to the one pictured above.

There is also a sun porch off the bedroom which we will curtain off the entrance from the bedroom to make it darker in the room at night and create more separation.  I am loving yellow accents for the sun porch.


I can't wait to get started!  Okay, honestly...I can't wait to be finished!  I think everything will be very cute.  I will be posting before and after pictures as we work. 

Any DIY tips for me?


  1. Love the kitchen!! And the bedroom colors. Can't wait to see it all done.

    1. I will be taking before and after shots! I am ready to get going!!

  2. exciting! I'm not very helpful with DIY stuff, we did the patio but had professionals help with the backsplash - it involved electricity and just scared us...oh, paint before you put in the new flooring :)


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments make my day and I do my very best to respond to each and every one of them.
