1 year house update

We've already lived in our house for over a year! I can't believe it, time has flown by. We still love our house as much as the day we bought it. We've been slowly decorating and adding to our house this last year. Since the six month post I did a while back, a lot has changed!

The major things that have been updated: We switched out our bedding for the guest bed since we now have one of those, We got shutters, and put our back yard in!


Im completely obsessed with our new entryway table from West Elm. Normally I wouldn't have spent so much on one piece of furniture but I have been lusting after this table for over a year now and got a really nice bonus last quarter so I decided to splurge. 

Now I just need to buy some things to style it. 


Still at the same standstill as 6 months ago. I know I want to blow up a big picture from our Europe trip to set over the piano, outside of that Im still not certain how to finish this space up.

1/2 bath:

Same as before, still love it and feel like this space is simple and complete.

Living room:

We have our new shutters in and I am smitten with them! They turned out gorgeous and give us just the right amount of light vs privacy. We also have a new ottoman and I repurposed some old pillows to accent it. 


The kitchen has pretty much stayed the same! And I am good with that, Im still loving this space. 

Guest room:

We got a guest bed and used our old bedding for it. Next I need to get some kind of side table and a bedskirt. I think thats all we'll really need in this room for now. What else do you put in a guest bedroom?

Guest Bathroom:

Same and complete!

Laundry Room:

Same, eventually I want to make this space a little cuter, but for now its totally functional and Im just so grateful we have a laundry room!

Empty Bedroom:

Someday a kids bedroom, for now we never even walk into this room.

Master Bathroom:

Our newest edition to our bathroom is shutters! I also bought a cute marble bathroom set to finish this space up.

Master Bedroom:

Saying I love our master bedroom would be an understatement. Its PERFECT. I've always loved the frilly french countryside look and I feel like this white bedding we got is that to a "T." The only things we might get in the future are a full length mirror and a dresser (still love the bunch of different size candles idea).


Last month was all about putting our back yard in. We spent weeks tilling the yard, getting rid of rocks and organizing everything we needed to to get it in. We put in the sprinkles, top soil, and sod all ourselves-- it was a TON of work. Travis also built the most beautiful garden box where we are growing tons of veggies.

Our next steps are to extend our patio several feet so we can fit in the beautiful outdoor dining set we got on major sale at IKEA and to get our fence in!
