Snippets of our New Home

September 15, 2014


My intentions to blog more regularly keeps getting sidelined. 

More like I procrastinate. 

But my mother-in-law, who is my most loyal blog reader noted I had no photos up of our new place. I quickly snapped pics with my iPhone to send to her, and I figured I will give you all a peek. They are poor quality and were taken when my house was still in the midst of being unpacked. But I think they will make great "before" photos! Since teachers are still on strike, I have had time on my hand to get a few projects done. 

This house was freshly painted, so the wall colors will stay in the meantime. But I managed to hang up artwork and drapes!

I am also excited to be working with a few brands on some projects around the house as well! Can't wait to share.

Enjoy the snippets...and the mess.

The entry.



The family room.


The kitchen command center.


The kitchen, so nice and big. I think I will get lots of exercise cooking in this kitchen. So much bigger than my last kitchen, farther to go to get to the fridge, stove, over and pantry. I have a large pantry to the right, LOVE it!



The dining room, don't you love the chandy? Reminds me of the interrogation rooms you see on crime TV. I have a crystal chandelier from the other place to replace this lovely one.


The living room. 




Our master.


The games/TV room aka. My son's hangout room.


I fogot to take photos of 3 other bedrooms, nothing too exciting. And I have a doozy of a powder room. But that room is deserving of a post of its own.

Slowly the rooms are coming together, I am re-arranging things and using artwork and accessories from the last place but in different ways. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen some improvements!


I do hope once I start working again, I can buy a nice area rug for the living room and some new pieces of furniture. Can't wait to share the updates!

XO Barbara

  5. I think it is toss up between that spectacular staircase and the gorgeous kitchen. You must be having so much fun decorating. Love all the architectural elements: curves, angles, pillars, etc. Happy new house!
