With baby girl on the way, we’ve been shifting some things around at home. We’re not quite to the stage of baby-proofing, per se, but there are changes we’ve made to make our home a bit more family-friendly. I’m talking functionality, storage and layout. My husband and I have lived together now for about 6 years and our priority at home has always been comfort, but it’s always been the two of us. We were fine with shamelessly eating dinner at the coffee table most nights and we have always had the run of the land as far as closet space and storage. Now we’re thinking about things like, more floor space for play time, more storage for toys and swaddles, family dinner at a table, etc. I thought you might find it interesting if you’re a new mama too, or just love a good dose of home decor! This is about functionality and layout of the house, not about baby gear storage or nursery reveals… just yet.
I am so excited to share our new den with all of you today!! I can’t even tell you the sigh of relief I’m taking as I write this! This project has been in the works for what feels like forever! Not because it was hard to do or that we had any troubles, but it took time to not only collect the pieces and decide on the vibe of the room, but to decide on WHAT this space was going to be! It was an evolution and we took breaks and came back to it. Now that it has come together, I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you all! I hope you enjoy our vintage-coastal den reveal!
Are you feeling bored with a room in your house
(or every room? 😉 )
I know the feeling and although it can be really satisfying and fun to paint or to go shop for new accessories or furniture… it can also be really expensive, right? Sometimes that feeling fades too… I’m beginning to think that I’m addicted to change. ANYWAY–maybe a bigger change is necessary! The big change that I’m referring to doesn’t have to cost a thing!
So much of design is in the details
A whole post about curtain rods… really? Yes. And here’s why. The biggest lesson that I’ve learned since buying our house and turning it into our dream home is to design with intention. Don’t just flounder around buying things to fill holes or to “get it done”. Each element effects the overall look and feel of a room, so I want to make it count.
Today I am sharing with you a simplified, refreshed version of our home after the holidays. I was invited to join in on a Winter Home Tour along with 8 gorgeous home blogs! I have linked them all up at the end of this post so make sure to check them out! If you’re new to Indigo & Honey, welcome! I’m glad you’re here.
