SATURDAY CITY DAY WITH LUKE AT ABC CARPET & HOME
When we moved into our house two years ago I had a vision. In the blink of an eye I had completed our foyer (wallpaper, light fixture, painted trim, and upholstered our window seat bench). We stripped and re-finished the floors in the living room/dining room, decorated a little, and then…I was stumped! All the other projects were bigger, more costly, and overwhelming. Now after two years of living in our house I’m ready to pick it up again. On the list: finish the boys rooms, update the kitchen and first floor powder room, add more furniture here and there. Oh and we need new windows, HAHA! See, I told you it was overwhelming! We are trying to do the smaller projects on our own if possible (Frank started painting the bedroom hallway this weekend) so we can splurge a little on other things.
Do you pin? Recently, I’ve been spending a lot more time on Pinterest . Its really helping me hone in on what I want our home to look like and its also been a very helpful tool for conveying my vision to Frank and designer friends helping me. A few years ago I stumbled on this home makeover and it really stuck with me. I keep going back to it and now it’s become my main source of inspiration for our living room. I really went through a phase where I was uninterested in anything home related and now that I’ve experienced a spark I’m so excited to get moving! Stay tuned and follow along! I’ll be sharing updates with you via the new “AT HOME” tab on the blog under “LIFE”.

I love this space because its very calming and inviting. Its also not overly feminine which is important to me.
