House Tour + Insta-gratification
It’s been a good long while since I posted an old school straight-up mommy blogger style post. And I’m sorry for that!
I’m still trying to find the right balance to keep you, my faithful old friends, satisfied and entertained without traumatizing my new audience at CNA. Because let’s be honest, I’m not going to radically alter my voice or content, but some trauma you have to ease into.
The new blog is almost up and running, the design is going to be beautiful, and I can’t wait to show it to you. In the meantime, I’m still “here,” and so I figured why not post a little fluff to pass the time?
Oh, also, I finally embraced the modern world and joined Instagram yesterday. Welcome to the 90’s, Mr. Banks. (And you all were right: it’s the most fun of all social media.)
So something that I really, really love (because I’m a creeper?) is seeing other people’s homes. I’m a would be decorating junkie and an HGTV addict, so there’s nothing more fun to me than seeing somebody else’s style/space and being able to envision them more accurately in their natural habitat when I’m reading their words. (If you’re trying to decide if you’re disturbed or flattered, go with flattered: I want to see your living room.)
Anyway, do you want to see my house? It’s been enjoying a little TLC while I KonMari’d the crap out of my wardrobe/kitchen/bookshelves/decor, and I’m much happier with the way it looks now as opposed to 2 weeks ago. Much.
It’s still not perfect, you know, because it’s a work in progress. But it makes me happy to coax it along; I get a rush of satisfaction from finding a new spot for a tired piece of furniture or a neglected vase. Cheapest of thrills.
So, here you go, a virtual tour of casa del coffee:
First up, the living room/front entry way.
(How do I get such amazing shots? I’m telling you, it’s the 2 year old camera phone and the steady caffeinated hand. #gifted #blessed)
dude. i am very jealous of your clutter free house. I also am really into stalking other people’s living spaces, so thanks for that. Welcome to instagram….
You can have decorative objects on your coffee table and toddlers don’t throw them everywhere? Super impressed.
This is from six months ago, but here ya go – http://adamandcaitlin.blogspot.com/2014/09/house-tour-six-months-in.html
I need to do a new one soon!
Your home looks very clean and organized. not much makes me happier! I am doing a series of posts on my blog of our home. This is my favorite room: http://handmaidrose.blogspot.com/2015/03/musicprayer-room.html
I’ve photographed the crap out of my house. I love seeing what other people are doing and I’m so happy that I’m finally at a home where I can really inject my own style that everything is: SEE! I DID THIS! ISN’T IT GREAT??!!!
simma dah nah
I love a good declutter session. Preferably while the kids are napping and can’t claim “that’s my favorite!!” as another plastic birthday trinket goes into the donate pile. We moved into our new place in October and our nursery is my favorite place too. Mostly because I practically killed myself hanging stars from the ceiling like a crazy person. Sadly, I have yet to photograph that masterpiece!
I love seeing people’s houses too! The highlights for me were the cool Saint dresser, and that gorgeous rug in the baby room 🙂 And you might be inspiring me with all this talk of de-cluttering….
