Chloe’s ‘Fairy Garden’ Bedroom Reveal

Hello! And HAPPY Summer! I know it’s been a while since I blogged, but I finally have a capsule of photos to share many new blog posts and room reveals.. yay!

Today, I am so excited to share all the beautiful details of Chloe’s Bedroom! You may remember my Design Board that I created many months ago, but it took quite some time to finally bring it all together. This room far exceeded my love for a neutral color palette, but I absolutely LOVE the bright colors + vibrant details so much! Chloe loves her bedroom, and I love walking into such cheerful + whimsical space.. something that definitely matches her personality.

I love that I was able to bring her idea of a ‘Fairy Garden’ Bedroom to life, and incorporate some of the pieces she’s been collecting. I’ll share all the sources to the room next week, so stayed tuned!

Capri’s Bedroom Design Board

HAPPY Spring! The weather is FINALLY starting to feel like springtime, and we’ve had a burst of motivation to work on some house projects. We had a successful + busy weekend rearranging our bedrooms. Do you remember when I shared Chloe’s Bedroom Design Board? Well, we finally have it all together, and I can’t wait to share it.. it is soooo beautiful!

Capri turned three in December, and my plan was to create a woodland theme in her new big girl bedroom. Remember this ADORABLE post I shared on the teepee in her room? It was my inspiration. Buuuuut, this ‘threenager’ had other ideas for her bedroom. She was very persistent that she wanted a Ballerina Bedroom. Capri is all about tutus, jewelry and all things sparkly! So I created a design board to fit her requests, and LOVE how it turned out.

Spring Favorites with Anthropologie Home at Nordstrom

I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready for Spring to arrive! We’ve had a rough winter filled with an obnoxious amount of sicknesses, and I am sooooooo excited for the warm sunshine, green grass and getting back outside (..because I absolutely HATE the cold)! I haven’t done much with our home, but when I saw that Anthropologie Home is now available at Nordstrom, I just had to start shopping. I think a touch of color is exactly what (we) and our home needs! Here are a few of my favorites..

Chloe’s Bedroom Design Board

After a busy and exciting holiday season (including our Holiday Home Tour), I am ready to start on some fun new projects in our home. One of my favorite spaces to design + decorate for are my girls. My oldest, Chloe, is turning seven years old in March.. how is that even possible?! I want her bedroom to be a fun + colorful space! I also want the room to grow with her. Nothing too juvenile, but also nothing too grown up either.

All throughout our building process, Chloe always told us that she wanted a fairy garden bedroom. She is SO excited to create a fairy garden outside her bedroom window this summer, and has been collecting the most adorable pieces for it. Have you seen the selection at Michaels?! It’s the CUTEST! I’m excited to incorporate the inspiration into her bedroom, and found some really great pieces that I think are vibrant + whimsical.. just like a fairy garden! I can’t wait to put it all together and surprise my girl!

Holiday Home Tour with West Elm

I am so thrilled to share my Holiday Home Tour, in collaboration with West Elm. While I was so excited to finally have a space to decorate for the holidays (it’s been two years!), I was a little lost on where to begin. I knew that I wanted to find pieces that I would not only have this year, but years to come. I worked closely with my local West Elm store (West Elm Milwaukee), and their amazing Interior Stylist, Erin, on creating a space that accented the style of our home. She first came to view the space, then staged everything in store for me to come review.. and I absolutely LOVED what she had created! She then brought everything to my home and set it all up for me. It’s so beautiful, and I know we will display these pieces each and every holiday season..

My typical color scheme for Christmas decor has always included a neutral pallet of white, gold + silver, but I love that Erin incorporated navy + blush pink! I also love how she displayed the pieces, to allow the rooms to flow together with one cohesive look. The fresh greenery on the mantel, tablescape, as well as our live Christmas Tree, adds another beautiful touch that also smells amazing!

We are so excited to celebrate this holiday season in our new home, and look forward to the beautiful memories we’ll create as a family.

Living Room Sources

Thank you for all the kind + sweet comments about our Living Room Reveal! Below are some images and sources to the items featured in the room..

Our sofa is the Cameron Roll Arm Sofa from Pottery Barn and we absolutely LOVE it! We customized it with the fabric that we wanted and are so happy with the look + comfort! The large wooden whale was a piece that my husband found at Homegoods. He thinks it’s the coolest thing ever, and I was quite hesitant when he first showed me. BUT, it’s grown on me and I think it looks great in the space!

We are gradually still decorating each space of our home, and I can’t wait to show you more! But I am most excited to decorate for Christmas! There’s just something about the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree + twinkling lights!! Stay tuned!

Living Room Reveal..

I am so excited to finally share the photos of our living room today. It has definitely been a process for it to feel complete, but I am so happy with how everything turned out. It was also the perfect opportunity to take some photos in between the transition of our Halloween and Christmas decor. But I have to admit, I’ve been anxiously awaiting the Hearth + Hand with Magnolia collection to arrive at Target. Have you seen it? I love everything.. all of it! It was so hard not to buy the entire collection, but I somehow managed to contain myself. I found some pieces for my mantel that I love!

There are many details of this room that I adore, but one of my most favorite is the navy shiplap on either side of the fireplace. It was definitely a bold decision, but one that we absolutely LOVE! Welcome to our living room..

This space is part of the heart of our home (along with our kitchen). We light a fire, watch movies, play games and just be together as a family.. and it feels so great to make the best memories here. I cannot wait to setup our Christmas tree and have our very first Christmas in this house.. our home! Stay tuned for more room reveals and an exciting Christmas decor post!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Home Picks

Do you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I always score the BEST deals on some of my absolute favorite brands! Currently, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to cardholders through July 20th, and will then open to the public to shop.

Each year, I always stock up on some of my favorite items (like these leggings), which I seriously live in! I also love the selection of boots and sweaters for the Fall, as well as some back to school shoes/clothes for my girls.

While we’re still trying to settle into our new home, I’ve been searching for things to accessorize with, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has some really great items this year! Here are some of my top picks..

Home Sweet Home!

Whew! It has been a very busy and productive month.. packing, moving, unpacking, swim lessons, unpacking, summer picnics, unpacking.. and then more unpacking! So much of our stuff had been packed away for two years, that it was so overwhelming when we started to open the boxes. But we are finally starting to feel settled, and slowly but surely finding a space for it all. And it’s finally starting to feel like HOME! It feels so great to reflect on where we began, and have an overwhelming sense of gratitude for it all.

Here are a few quick photos I snapped before the boxes and furniture were moved inside..

Pinterest Inspiration : Living Room Design

If you follow along on my Instagram, you’ve seen that I shared a few sneak peaks of our living room. Wood beams, shiplap walls, and brass (gooseneck) wall sconces are my absolute favorite details! We are just waiting for the mason to add the stone around the fireplace, and the space will be complete. I cannot wait to show it to you!

Here are some beautiful images that inspired us in the design + layout..
