Please note: I know I cannot have a all white room with 2 kids I am just saying I am getting most of my ideas from this pictures.
My walls will be grey and ottaman will not be white...I like the tables, flowers, and pillows . My favorite thing is the pillows with all different fabrics.
Ok....I am very excited to say that I will be re-doing my house before Christmas. Not just redecorating but moving my rooms around a little bit. Did you know that my playroom for the kids is the biggest room in our house, I mean are you kidding me? That is ridiculous. Jessica (my SIL) is going to help me with this challenge of switching my living room to where the playroom is and the playroom where my guest bedroom is...everyone following me, ha...and then where my living room is now will be a dining room! I know that sounds confusing and honestly those little details are more for me to remember. I am very excited and I think it will be a great change for the house.

This is the wall color I have picked out. It is Pensive Sky from Behr. I think it is really calming and I think in a house with 2 little ones you need that.

My fabric. My couch and big chair are cream leather and then I have a navy blue recliner. I am using this fabric to recover the ottoman that goes with the big cream colored with chair. I think I am just going to make a slip cover rather than recover it, just so I am able to wash it often.

What I want is a comfy living room mostly a neutral color with pops of color. Obviously, kid friendly but I would like something a little bit more grown up with organization.

I think what happened was we got the house then had a baby, then by the time Addie Jane was old enough for me to start decorating, I got pregnant again. Now, I feel like Addie Jane is 2 and a half and Jack is almost 1 and it's time to make change. A change for the better. I want an area where they can play but not be so overwhelmed, an area where Jentry and I can entertain, and an area where we can all sit down and eat dinner is that really too much to ask? I am going to post before pictures of the house soon and then hopefully I will have it finished by Christmas with a pretty tree and decorations.


  1. LOVE it! Let's get this party started!

  2. That sounds awesome! I totally followed what you were saying about switching rooms. The paint and the patters look awesome! I'll more than likely be home for thanksgiving next so maybe we can get together then. And maybe I'll just help you do some of this stuff, who knows!?
