I can hardly believe it’s September, school has started, and we are entering my favorite season! Fall can never come soon enough for me. I love everything about it. The changing leaves, pumpkin spice anything, and cooler weather (well, that has yet to come, but you know, at some point!)
Trends in home design come and go, and sometimes come again! Brass seems to be one of those things. I remember when we first moved into our house and there were several brass light fixtures and they looked sooo “80’s”, and so, of course, they had to go! Door handles in the last decade looked better if they were chrome or oil-rubbed bronze, not dated brass. Oh, how things have changed!
I’ve only shared bits of my daughter’s room over the years, but today, I’m excited to share with you how we did a little coastal teen bedroom refresh!
We redid her room about six years ago, as at that time it had never been changed since the time she moved out of her crib! This time she didn’t want to change anything drastic, but she was itching to change her bedding. She was feeling like it was a little too young for her at this stage. She’s in college now, and as such, she wanted something just a little more grown-up. And she wanted some blues!
As I’m sure a lot of you know, I’m a candle lover! Candles are something I adore, and I almost always have one burning in the house. I love how they can warm up a space just with their scent. They can convey a feeling, a mood, or even a season. Truthfully, I can never have too many!
We’ve all heard the saying, I know, so you may think my answer doesn’t seem terribly original. But I am really not kidding when I say we chose our house for the location, because, it’s almost the only reason to have chosen it!
Today I’m sharing the back story of our house and why we chose it, and I’m joining 13 other bloggers who are also sharing their “Why I Chose My House” stories! This blog hop is hosted by my friend Jennifer of Town and Country Living.
I’m pretty sure I know what you’re thinking ~ at least those of you who’ve been reading for awhile, haha! I’ve been promising this post for awhile now, and it’s finally here! Today I’m so excited to be sharing my backyard and pool renovation reveal!
