Blue House Tour: Dining Room

When we bought our first house, a dining room was on the wish list, but it wasn’t meant to be. (I made the most of what we did have, though.) Before we even moved into our blue house, I was beyond excited to finally have a dining room and spent some time dreaming up a mood board. […]

Updating the Fireplace with Tile

When we first moved into our Blue House, the fireplace looked like this: Super pretty right? That’s the photo we took right after we took possession of the house back in December 2012.

I blogged about wanting to upgrade our front porch back in April. I crossed one itty bitty item off my list this weekend: I ordered a bench. It was a great price — only $80. I didn’t need anything special or fancy for our front porch, but I do love the fleur-de-lis detail on the back. […]
