new house!

Well, don't know about you but it felt to me like I had deserted this blog!  Moving sure takes a toll on you!  I am still trying to catch up on sleep loss from staying up way too late from before and after the move.  But we are finally in our new house and starting to feel settled.  So I thought it was about time I checked back in and showed you a few pics...

We went with a craftsman style for the house.  I just love how the stone and siding turned out!  And I love our front door!  Loving the color we ended up going with too...{concert hall, Allen & Roth from Lowes}

Here is Little Bit's room...she wanted purple walls.  So I picked out a color that coordinated with the bedding she already had.  It is Mood Violet by Pratt & Lambert {although we had it color matched and used Benjamin Moore paint}.  We just picked up the print above her bed yesterday at Hobby Lobby....it matches great!  We also have a big vinyl tree decal ordered that we are going to put on the left of her bed...she is super excited to get it decorated!  {She is definitely her mamas girl! ;)}

Our living room is great....It is one of the first rooms we put together.  Nice to have a place to just sit (haha) and relax during all the unpacking.  Plus it was nice to have the tv set up for Little Bit to have some entertainment, listen to music and/or watch the Olympics!  The color on the walls is Almond Toast by P&L{also a color match to use BM paint}.  

Here is our bedroom.  I am liking the more muted color pallete in here.  Before we had orange as an accent color.  While I did like it, I was tired of it after 5 years.  So we decided to go with a nice blue for the walls and then more neutral bedding.  I found this great khaki quilt at TJ Maxx for half of what I was going to pay at Target, so glad I shopped around!  I picked up the accent pillows at Big Lots and Meijer.  The wall color is Bracken Architrave Blue {Williamsburg by P&L, colored matched to BM paint}.

Mudroom!....I am loving this entrance off the garage.  We got this bench from Wayfair and it has been a great catch all.  We keep our keys and backpacks on the hooks and the bench is a great place to sit to put on shoes before heading out the door...or catch all the library books and reusable bags!  ;)  I'm waiting to put down my runner until all the workers are done coming and going.  There are still a few odds and ends that need to be finished up.  But overall we are loving the new house and having a great time making it our home!
