6 Months of Homeownership: Decor, Paint, Furniture + More

Wednesday, March 27, 2019


In my last blog post I shared all about our wedding day, but 2018 wasn't done with us yet...We closed on our first home in October, and it's been a wonderful whirlwind ever since. You can read all about our powder room remodel here, but today I wanted to give you some insight into the details we've worked on thus far, including some great decor items and what colors we used in each room.

decor + furniture

I got a ton from Kirkland also, but couldn't link it in the widget: Artwork in Family Room; Mirror in Formal Living Room; Runner in Foyer; Lamps (sold as 2pk) in Master Bedroom and Family Room. 

paint
Main Floor/Foyer = "Pale Oak" by Benjamin Moore
Powder Room = "Modern Gray" by Sherwin Williams
Laundry Room = "Emmie's Room" by Magnolia Home (Kilz Brand, Only Available at Ace Hardware Stores // This paint is phenomenal. Blows BM and SW out of the water. We just couldn't find a whole-house color we were happy with. Literally every other room in our house is by Magnolia.) 
Master Bedroom = "Yarn" by Magnolia Home 
Master Bath = "Homebody" by Magnolia Home
Master Closet = "Anatolian" by Magnolia Home
Man Cave = "Loft" by Magnolia Home
Office = "Antique Rose" by Magnolia Home 
Main Bath = "Cinnamon Sugar" by Magnolia Home
Guest Bedroom = "Wedding Band" by Magnolia Home
