Thoughts for Thursday

Happy Thursday! Today is Avery's first day off from school since it started and I am so excited to get a little one on one time with her when Greyson is in school this morning.  I think we all know that just means a trip to the nail salon... mother/daughter bonding at its most primitive level!  But, on to other topics... like our house.  This never-ending project that seems to take up almost all of my time these days.  There are still boxes everywhere and rooms that are completely untouched, but we are gradually (say it with me again, g r a d u a l l y) making a tiny dent in it.  

I love the light in the house and the super light white and grey theme we have going on.  I'm lucky to have a close friend with most amazing taste and a husband who is handy with a level.  I desperately need new curtains in the living room (top) and have no idea what I want in there.  Any and all tips are welcome!  I'm also ridiculously excited about the white mini buffet/sideboard in the bottom picture that came yesterday.  I have been waiting for that baby to arrive for weeks and it brings the dining room together so well... and holds a whole lot of wine glasses (priorities, people!)

Here are my inspiration snaps that I can't stop thinking about right now...

So, what do you all think... pops of color or a nice neutral palette with dark wood as my occasional pop of color?

Have a fabulous day!

  1. The house is looking great! That buffet is beautiful, I was going to say that on your IG when you posted that pic :). Looks like you're making tons of progress and the natural light in your house is wonderful! We had boxes for months too - no worries!! Can't wait to see it when it's finished. It's already looking do much like your inspiration pics! Xoxo

  2. The house looks awesome!!! Obsessed with all of the natural light you have! And I need the details on your sectional... I've been on the hunt for one exactly like it! I'm a neutral person through and through so I'd probably stick with pops up darker wood for accents but I really don't think you could go wrong with anything in there!

  3. You are really getting at on of light in all your rooms - that's amazing!! I love all your inspiration and can't wait to see all the finished rooms!! Have so much fun with your mommy daughter time today!

  4. Beautiful! I love that your house is so crisp and white. Pops of color go really well in a color scheme like that! LOVING it!

  5. Your house looks amazing! You have so much gorgeous natural lighting and I LOVE the light neutral colors, they look so clean and welcoming! Loving all of your inspiration though!

  6. I love the light colors in your home! Also love the chalk board and cork boards! I may have to make one!

  7. Loving how airy and calming the new house's colors are. A pop of pink always looks good too and you nailed it :)

  8. i love all the natural light and your couch looks so comfy! congrats on the g r a d u a l progress :)

  9. Your inspiration pieces are right up my alley!!! I love them all. I think neutral is definitely the way to go. And hey, you have things hanging on the walls already, so thats great progress in my book :)

  10. Your house is coming along great! I love the style :)

  11. I hope you and Avery enjoyed your girls day together yesterday! Don't worry we've been in our house 1.5 years and we're still working on it. The fact that you already have stuff hanging on the walls is quite impressive to me!!
