Dining Room Plans

A dining table may not seem like such a big deal for most but I for one am over the moon about this addition to the house. We have not had a dining room table since we lived in Orlando. With doing the travel nursing gig there was no need or room for it. Once we decided Denver would be our landing place we knew we wouldn't purchase one until we moved into our permanent residence. Well here we are, a decision made and a place to gather with our family. We went with a Galvin top to break up the space and create a space that felt fresh. The wood legs tie in perfectly with our peninsula butcher top and open shelves. 

Noelle has always been a rolling stone while eating her dinner, which has made for some very long dinner times. Eating for hours while she roams the house. She is in for a rude awakening now that she will have to sit and finish her food before she gets up. I have some serious plans for this space. Lighting, bar cart in front of that beautiful window, cushions for the bench and of course chairs. We have the fabric for the bench in a dark gray and we will be on the hunt for light colored chairs. For lighting we have new recessed lights that were placed during the renovation but we need to decide on the center light that needs to be replaced.

Sister Sister

This relationship is new to me. This love that they share I have never experienced. And I'm sure I've told you all I was sure I never wanted it as a child or an adult, but being the mother of two girls has made me wonder what it would have been like to have a sister.

Valentine's Day Decor

My husband and I don't always agree on design styles but lucky for him, he listens to his wife!! I lovingly call him the design grinch because he is not a fan of me decorating certain parts of the house for the holidays. These places include the mantel and our open shelves in the kitchen, prime spots to show case my love of holidays. He says I'm "putting a bumper sticker on a Bentley". Well whatever, I think it's fun and festive and Noelle likes it as well. Target makes it easy for me to decorate these spaces super cute and for not a lot of money. Everyone knows and loves the dollar section right as you enter the store. It's a complete trap and I fall for it every time.
