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!

 

Kitchen Conundrum

Confession: I currently have white kitchens on the brain. They're just so stunning, classic, crisp, cool, modern, and downright beautiful. I know I'll love them forever and ever and will never stop recommending them to others. No matter what anyone says. Period. End of story.

With this in mind, our beautiful new home has one big flaw: It currently has light brown walnut cabinets. [gasp!]

Don't get me wrong, they are high-quality and quite good looking, and nothing a little white subway tile backslash to the ceiling and trio of pendant lights over the island couldn't help make more "my style"...but they're just not white. Even when I squint.

Now, I can imagine there are lots of people out there that would find this desire to change up new wood cabinets sacrilegious, but I can't stop envisioning what they would look like painted white. (FYI - they'd look gorge!)

So....as I'm sure you can imagine....I'm currently in the process of pricing out the cost to have them professionally painted. We'll see if it's even doable in the budget....but you know me, I'll likely obsess until I can make it happen. 

Until then, here are some inspiring white kitchens I've come across during my Pinterest stalking....

Aren't they all such lookers?

What would you do if you had new wood cabinets....would you paint them or leave them as is?

Home Sweet Home

On the daily, I am so grateful for this growing interior styling/e-design business that I began over three years ago. I constantly pinch myself that other people trust me to create beautiful spaces in their own homes because I truly LOVE what I get to do. 

As you know, we've been renting for nearly two years and I've been itching to design a home of our own the whole time. The house hunt has been a rollercoaster, to put it mildly, and I've been counting down the days to jump off the crazy ride! 

Which is why I am SO EXCITED to share that we are FINALLY moving into a home next month! [insert happy dance!]

It's a beautiful new construction single family home with 5 bedrooms and a big open concept. It's just down the street from where we rent and I can't wait to share more of what it looks like now...what we'll be doing to it before we move in....and my vision for what each room will eventually look like!

As you can imagine, we couldn't be more excited and thankful to get to call this new place our home and I have tons of these mood boards and furniture configurations floating around in my head.

I'm planning to share more about the house, what I'm like as a client (hint hint: I'm my own worst nightmare!), and general ways to make a new construction feel more personalized over here on the blog! So stay tuned!
