Things I'm Loving

Now that the dust has settled (literally) on the bulk of the remodeling I am able to enjoy my new spaces without the stresses of huge to do lists.  I am very much enjoying the blend of my things, my mom's things and my grandparents' things in this new meets old space.

Our house was built in the 30's.  I love a lot of the charms of this old house.  My favorite?  The crystal door knobs.

If I ever move from this house I think these door knobs might have to move with me.

As we updated the house, especially the kitchen, I tried to embrace the age of the home.  My favorite new piece with antique style in the kitchen is our faucet.

I think it really works in our new old kitchen.

The cabinets that I turned into shelving in the breakfast room are awesome.  They are by far my favorite part of that room.  I love that the bead board continued inside the cabinets.

I use the space to display a collection of my things, my mom's and both my grandmothers' things.  I love seeing it all together.

A few of the husband's things made the shelves too.

I have also introduced a lot of color into the house.  I absolutely love the whimsical hallway.

And the cranberry dining room.

After taking some after pictures this weekend with my actual camera (don't get too excited it is still a point and shoot camera, just one up from my phone) I will start my before and after posts by room.  I am very excited about these posts!  They have been a long time coming.

I found another awesome blog with a link party.  Savvy Southern Style has some beautiful ideas.  I am linking up over there for Wow Us Wednesdays.  If you are visiting from Savvy Southern Style, welcome...thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!! What are you loving these days?
