Finish Nursery: Check!

It's DOOOONE! I'm so excited to be presenting you with this adorable nursery! 

When we started this nursery we were on a budget and a time crunch.  Well, at least the budget stayed mainly in tact. As for time, you can blame my little nugget of joy for putting me off the schedule. But now that we're all done I'm so proud of how it all came together.  Let's see it! 

First off, you would not believe how much trouble the weather decided to give me when it was picture time! But in the end it all worked out.

Let's start with the entrance view.

Small Changes And Fun Finds

Last October I did The Nester's 30 Day Challenge.  My challenge was to finish decorating my family room in 31 days.  You can see my final reveal here.  With the addition of a time constraint on my already busy schedule some things ended up feeling, just okay, to me.  

So, I made a few minor changes that made the room feel a bit more, like what I had imagined.

Coral And Blue For The Dining Room It Is!

I've had our little dining room on hold for far too long. So, I've finally got up the gumption to get it started.

When I started planned our dining room I gravitated towards a coral and blue color combination.

Here are a just few of the photos that inspired my color choice.

Command Center Reveal

It's finally here.  The reveal of my family kitchen command center.  I bet you thought is was never going to come! Sometimes life likes to interject, doesn't it?  #lifesfunnythatway

This command center was certainly a "labor" of love.  We built the pockets from scratch and they kind of gave us a run for our money.  Not to mention, I swear, I sabotaged myself several times by shooting nails out of the sides of them.  Sometimes a half inch just isn't enough space ya know?

Mood Board: Cozy Master Bedroom

I finally got around to finishing the master bedroom design idea mood board.  

I originally started designing based off of a piece of art that we had.  The further I got into into the design I wasn't liking how the picture fit in.  So, we decided to use it in a different space.

There were a few spaces that lent inspiration to my overall scheme.

I love the color of this space and how bright and cheery it is.

Kitchen Conquered!

We finally came to an agreement on the kitchen!  Hallelujah!  I was, for real, ready to poke my own eye out.  No joke.

After much back and forth, deliberating, tantrum throwing, and a pinch of "don't make me slap you" we finally both came up with a kitchen design we love.

Kitchen Color Dilemma

Over the last couple of days I was supposedly going to work on some mood boards for the master bedroom and another guest room.  Well, I got focused on the kitchen instead.  I'm not sure what got into me, but I felt like I wanted to shoot a few ideas at it.

The color for the kitchen has actually been a bit of a thorn in my side.  It is a pretty neutrally colored kitchen, but for some reason I'm just not falling in love with anything I try to pair up with it.

The family room is finally finished being decorated (for now at least, lol).  There may be a few things that will change in the future but for now I love it just the way it is.  See what it originally looked like here. There are a few things which are my particular favorites that I'll mention during the post. So without any further adieu...the REVEAL!!
