Friday 5

y'all, now that I've revealed our new humble home space (just kidding - only the exterior for now) I want to share some of my design thoughts. Thank y'all so much for your kind comments and well wishes on this move! It still hasn't hit me that we're leaving our big ole' fixer upper and at this point I just pray that the new owners love it just as much as we did (and do!) So without further ado, here are 5 things that we are thinking design wise for the new space.

Linking up today for Friday 5 and Friday Favorites with AprilKarliAndreaAmanda & Erika

So here's a tiny preview of the kitchen just y'all have a visual. This gives us that desired project we're always looking for because in all honestly, we have no idea what move in ready should feel like! Anyway, we want to definitely brighten the space up a bit and play off of the fabulous natural light. Here is the design scheme we have agreed upon:

We had brown leather furniture previously to accent all of the dramatic woodwork. For our new home I'd love to take a lighter approach. I'm dreaming of a linen sectional in a fun pattern or solid blue. The first is Ballard Designs and the second is Society Social. Regardless, that blue leopard print is going somewhere! (Whether its the sofa, curtains or even an accent chair or pillows)

For the dining room - I want to (maybe) go out of my comfort zone and try white or white washed pieces with lots of gold accents and maybe some pops of color like blue (of course)

I really like the paint scheme we had previously so I'll probably carry over a lot of the same colors in the rooms. We had a lot of grays and blues and there's just so much you can do with it all! (There's SO much yellow in there right now...I'm even talking yellow ceiling paint)

Y'all - this society social bar cart - that'a all I have to say!
