casa de updates

Hello my readers! Are you still out there? I know I fell off the face of the earth lately. Of course the new house has been consuming my life.  I wish I had some other exciting stories or amazing revelations to share with you…but I don’t.  So in that case I will now attempt to entertain you with the latest updates at the new casa.

Last week, we finally finished painting! Okay that was a lie. We are not done thanks to the knotty pine bonus room from hell. I’m in one more coat denial so of course I believe this is the last coat. We shall see…

Our final paint palette ended up looking like this:

For our fun sized powder room, I decided to do an accent wall of wallpaper in the pattern below. My hope is that it will make it seem a little bigger. You know like maybe 4 x 5 feet instead of 3.5 x 4!

Perhaps the mack daddy news of all is that we just had the wood floors last week. For the first time I actually felt like this whole thing is finally starting to come together!

I love how they turned out!  It’s crazy to think just the floors and paint can make this much of a difference!

PS. We just moved everything in on Saturday!  I’m not going to lie – it’s a little strange. It doesn’t quite feel like it’s our home yet, but I’m sure that will come with time.  Kinda hard to feel homey when there are boxes everywhere I guess. 🙂

PPS. I am the proud new owner of this new clearance mirror at target. $19.99 . Come into my lovely home!

That’s all for now!  I promise to get back to the regular posts.  I’ll be back sooner than later 🙂 xo.

  1. Love the paint palette! I am all about grays and creams and litt bits of soft green/blue thrown in for good measure. I am redoing a house top to bottom and many of these colors are on our list as well. Do you mind sharing with me which colors you used where? I

    1. Hey Tess, I took a little break from blogging and just saw this!

      I did the Worldly Gray on the walls throughout, Pure White was the overall trim color, Sea Salt in the hallway (this makes a beautiful bathroom color as well!), Crushed Ice is the Master Bedroom wall color, and White Heron is the office wall color. Hope this helps! 🙂
