I have had an itch lately to do some decorating/redecorating in my house. We bought this house two and a half years ago and, for the most part, I'm finished decorating it but there's still some spaces here and there that could use some sprucing up. I always keep my eye out for anything I think may look good in my house and earlier this week I was at HomeGoods and spotted a rug that I thought would work in my living room. I talked Scott into going with me to pick it up and once we got it home and on the floor, I was delighted with the result!
I also found a few pillows to throw on the sofa with my existing ones. I was wanting to add a small bit of color to the space since the "colors" in my living room are just grey and cream. I love the monochromatic look but I'm in the mood to get some color around here. I found these pale pink pillows at TJ Maxx and they look so pretty! I love the way it all pulled together. It was so simple and so affordable as well. That makes me love it even more!
I'm also wanting to add more personal family photos to my house. I have a new baby, some cute puppies and a nice camera that takes beautiful photos and I want to show them off! I love family photos and whenever I go to other people's homes, I enjoy looking at their photos that they clearly love so much. I have a little gallery wall in the hallway leading to my bedroom and it's full of family photos. I love it. I change out the pictures a lot and even though it's been there since I moved into this house and I walk by it multiple times a day, I still enjoy looking at it.
**Detour: I knew I wanted to do a gallery wall and pinned so many ideas but when it came down to it, I discovered that pulling a gallery wall together is super hard!!! After spending a lot of time trying to make one work, I found it was easiest to just pick all of the same frame and do black and white photos. That way I didn't have to worry about color coordinating, etc. These simple white frames are from Target. I just laid the frames on the floor and arranged it a ton of different ways, took a photo of each layout, and then decided on the arrangement I liked best.
Anywho, even though I have the photos in the gallery wall, I still like the idea of having more family photos here and there around my house. I've never really loved how I've decorated my kitchen so I finally decided to do something about it. I actually didn't even have to buy anything, I just used stuff I already had but in different ways! I love my kitchen decor now and it fits the whole feeling of my house much better!
It's always so fun to do something new with your home. I love my new look and can't wait to move on to the next house project!
