NEW KITCHEN ROUND-UP

T-minus 7 days until we officially move in to the new house, and you'd be correct to guess that we're beyond excited to start this new chapter as homeowners yet again! I've been mood boarding like a lunatic in between client projects and driving my husband crazy with new ideas of where things should go, what we need to buy, and what we can dream of doing down the road.

While we've hired professional movers to move all the furniture and big items (like our grill that's been in the back of our garage for the last two years), we're full steam ahead packing and bringing random odds and ends over to their new home. I'm kinda crazy about NOT having the movers touch certain items so even though it's monotonous to do so many trips back and forth it's worth it for us....plus the goal is to have most everything in its rightful place by the end of moving day.

Over on Instagram I've been sharing sneak peeks of some of the new arrivals that I've ordered, but haven't had a chance to share all the details on my plans room by room. So over the next few days I'll be sharing my mood boards, inspiration, and where we're at in the process!

Let's start things off with the kitchen...easily my favorite room in the whole house!

Just as a refresher, this is how things started out....

Obviously not my dream white kitchen, but since it is new, clean, and spacious, it's nothing a little paint can't fix! I hired a great team to paint the cabinets 'Simply White' by Benjamin Moore and plan to share more about the process and how it all turns out in the coming weeks. 

As far as where we're at now: cabinet doors and drawers have been removed for priming and painting remotely and they will all be arriving back with new hardware end of this week! [insert happy dance!]

Initially, I created this mood board as my kitchen inspiration to keep me on track during the process....

SHOP THE LOOK

I'm happy to report that I didn't sway all too much from my initial vision for the space....the stools and pendant lights have already arrived and the new vintage rug is en route! 

Stay tuned for the big reveal of how the space shapes up once the cabinet doors and hardware are installed, pendant lights are hung, and vintage runner arrives. You can be sure I'll be instagramming the heck out of this space in the coming weeks!

MEMORIAL DAY SALE FINDS

Happy Memorial Day weekend, and unofficial start to the summer season! It's crazy how quickly this year is passing by!

There are so many sales happening right now that it's kinda overwhelming to know where to begin. Even for me! So I've done us all a favor and rounded up a bunch of my favorite pieces from a variety of my go-to stores....for everything from furniture and pillows, to rugs and lighting!

MIRRORS

I'm planning a follow-up post for tomorrow sharing all the fun accessories out there as well...from kitchen and bath to living room and playroom! Nows the time to snag those finds at a fraction of their normal cost!

Target is killing it these days!

Popped into Target today after a weird experience at Lowes, trying to get a quote on natural woven roman shades for the new house (more on that later). So many fun finds that were very hard to resist! Between Opalhouse, Threshold, and Project 62, it's nearly impossible to leave empty handed.

When I got home I realized there was an online only sale happening where you can save up to 25% off home + patio items! ONLINE ONLY! Of course I had to round up my faves for you all on the blog because I can't yet do that swipe-up function on Instagram (soon enough, hopefully!).

Anyway, some of this eye candy is on sale, some isn't (not really sure why), but they're all super good looking and a great deal for the price regardless. PLUS, all "patio" pieces are an additional 10% off with code DEAL. What?! Yep, an extra savings. Sweet.

 

You're welcome!
