Decorating this room was one of my favorites because I’ve decided to fully embrace that I LOVE neutrals, and I’m going to implement that in our bedroom (Husband doesn’t really care what the room looks likes as long as it’s not a bunch of girly patterns, haha!) I sometimes get a lot of guff for decorating in so much white, grey, and brown, but these tones feel peaceful and clean to me, so that stepping into this room is instantly calming.
As you can see we still have a little buddy sleeping with us in here, her bed decor is totally throwing off my vibe, haha! When she snuggles into the middle in the wee hours all cozy, I know it’s worth it, and I really don’t mind. She will sleep in her own gorgeous room when she is ready, but for now, the adjustment to the new house is proving enough for her to cope with at the moment. Plus, I feel a little more secure having her close by in this big house- I feel like I lose the kids in it all the time.
That quote above our bed in from one of Husband’s favorite Luke Combs songs, and I got him the print for our anniversary (12 years!).
Our morning coffee nook that I just adore! This has been a bucket list item and I love it. Looking out at the back yard, and all that sunshine, AND hot coffee? I just *swoon*!
I got this wall mount for Husband’ s guitar last Christmas in the hopes that if the instrument was more readily available, he’d be able to play more- it’s worked! Now, he’s not quite singing me love songs over our morning coffee, but that’s okay, we make up for it by being the scourge of many a campground with our evening practice of duets…but that’s another story.
Big C assembled this desk totally by himself. It is so fantastic that he is so handy, he helps me a lot. I got the Celtic crucifix for Chris for Father’s Day and we had it blessed and it was such an epic blessing! I am so grateful for our priests here. The sign below I made myself (woot!) it says “I am with you always” which is my very favorite Bible quote.
You can’t go wrong with a couple of Anne of Green Gables quotes when you wake up each morning. I just love these quotes; “It’s been my experience you can nearly always enjoy things, if you make up your mind firmly that you will.” Yes! None of this waking up on the wrong side of the bed for me, happiness is a choice! The other says, “Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it.” Maybe this quote is more fitting as a reminder before you go to bed, especially if you like to mentally doom spiral, like myself.
That’s all for today folks! I have just a couple more house tours coming up, before I start to document daily life and our plans for development in the back yard. I’ve got lots of ideas, but in the mean time- anyone know of any plants that love alkaline soil?
