Dining Area Updates and Ideas

Our last piece of dining room furniture came in, the buffet table. I have already decorated it with a few different objects and even then rearranged them multiple times. I am sure I will continue to mess with the configuration a few more times until it feels and looks right. 

So all the pieces in our home are complete and put together, for the exception of the few built in pieces we want (i.e. bookshelves, kitchen island). All the boxes are unpacked and put up, except for Amos's office/guest room and the books (because the don't have shelving yet), and it is one of the greatest feelings, as seen here and here.

Now is the really fun part where you start to hang art and pieces on the wall and arrange all the pretty little details we all love. For the dining room specifically, I want to do a d.i.y large chalkboard and hang multiple botanical prints over the buffet table. Here are the inspiration photos here.

Living Room Furniture Update!

All the furniture has officially been delivered for the living room. All the furniture that was purchased was a chair and rug from Joss and Main and a media console from Restoration Hardware; the rest of the piece we had in the loft or were in storage. Now all that is left is starting to hang pictures on the wall and mess with the little details. Here are some before and after pictures.

Views I'm Loving

I am taking a little break from studying to post a few more pictures of the progress we have made on the house. Like I mentioned before, it was pretty much move in ready, but there are a few remodeling ideas that I have, which you can see here.  More furniture that we have ordered is making it's way this week and next and can't wait to share those pictures with you. I absolutely love being in this new house!
The dining area is my favorite area of the house right now. I love opening up the doors to the back and enjoying the beautiful weather we have been getting.  The buffet table is coming in soon and I want to build my very own framed chalk board to go over it.

Easter Centerpieces

Easter is almost upon us y'all and since things are coming together more and more in the Prince house I have had time to put up little Easter decorations here and there. Since this is the first time I have had a dining room table and formal area, I want to have a really nice Spring or Easter centerpiece. Here are a couple of ideas that I have found to inspire me so far.

Things Are Slowly Coming Together - Small Details

There are still a few rooms filled with boxes, but most of the main areas are free of boxes; so things are slowly coming together. There is still a lot of work to do and I have not hung any art on the walls yet, but I am waiting to see how the layout and colors play out first. Here are a few little details I have put together so far. Happy Hump Day!
