As the home decorating process rolls on, it’s hit me recently that things are FINALLY coming together around here. If you saw this before and after post, then you know that Eric and I took on a major home remodel last year, and now that the construction is all done, I’ve been on a mission to get every room furnished and decorated. And well, it’s certainly been easier said than done.
During the months of construction, the house was a complete disaster. All of our furniture was in a POD in our driveway, our kitchen and brand new wedding gifts were all packed away, and my closet was inaccessible, sealed up with plastic. (When our one month rental unit turned into five months, I was REALLY bummed about that closet situation. But, I digress.) I couldn’t wait to get back into our house and start the decorating process from scratch.
Once we were all moved back into the house, we ordered rugs, a few new pieces of furniture, and new bedding. And then, we got tired. We needed a break and just didn’t care to get anything hung on the walls for a while. Plus, somewhere a few months later, I turned my sights to the master bedroom and living room in Palm Springs which somehow just came a bit easier.
But lately I’ve been on a roll with getting rooms finished up around here and recently restyled this little nook in our kitchen that makes me so happy. These glass-front cabinets used to house all of our clear wine and cocktail glasses, and it was so boring it drove me nuts. (You can see a peek at the before here.) With the white counters, cabinets, and walls, this cabinet was begging for a little color, and I wanted to pull in some of the blue from the rug in our kitchen.
I had my eye on a few things at Anthropologie (my FAVORITE site for dishes and glassware) and decided to pull the trigger during their annual sale a few weeks ago. My mom was in town to help a sister out with the styling, and I really love the way it turned out. I look at this little corner every morning while I’m pouring my coffee, and it’s got me motivated to tackle the next project: styling the glass cabinets by our fireplace. I’d like to say those are coming soon, but let’s be honest. We shall see.
