Hi friends. It’s been quite on the blog this week so I wanted to check in and let you know what I’ve been up to.
I started getting a sore throat the other day which means a summer cold is coming. I’m drinking lots of tea and desperately trying to fight it off. I want to call my doctor for a prescription but she doesn’t play that. She wants to see you before handing out drugs. She’s an awesome doctor and is doing the right thing but #aintnobobygottimeforthat! So I made a run to the drug store yesterday and loaded up on cold meds.
I’ve been doing lots of fabric sourcing lately and found these beauties at ADAC. I haven’t landed on the right combo yet so the search continues today.
Things are moving along with the new house. The painters finish today and I’m excited to have the painting done. I love the colors I choose and how fresh and clean the house now looks. I’ll share photos on Instagram later today when I stop by the house so stay tuned.
The hubs and are spending the weekend doing major cleaning and moving some things into the garage storage area. We are finalizing the carpet and flooring this week and plans are for it to be installed next week. Then we’ll officially move in on the 19th and have two weeks to get settled before we go our a much-needed cruise.

When I haven’t been packing, I’ve been spending my evenings trying to nail down the decor plan for the house. Of course I’ve been turning to Pinterest for inspiration and these are the spaces that are inspiring me at the moment.
What appeals to me about this living room decor by Citrine Living is the soothing color palette, black accents and pops of brass. We’re planning on getting a new sofa and right now I’m leaning toward a mid-tone grey. I want to make sure I have lots of flexibility when it comes to accessorizing and a grey and white palette will allow for that.
I spotted this image from Decoholic and love the texture of the side table, floor pillow, rug and round platter. Since we have a dark wood coffee table using natural fibers, woven pieces and pops of black will work well.
p.s. I’ve been wanting these Ikea woven floor pillows (seen in the photo below) for ages so I’m planning on picking up a couple.
For the master bedroom, this bedroom decor has me inspired. Our walls are a softer grey than this but I love the feel of this bedroom. I’m considering getting a linen upholstered headboard and using black accent furniture to add depth. I’m going for a sophisticate spa feel.
And the last thing I’ll share regarding the house is the direction I think we’re going for the stair runners. I’m trying to decide between a patterned carpet and a sisal and I think a sisal might win out. Here are the top two contenders.
Before I sign off, I wanted to share some exciting news with you. ConfettiStyle has been nominated for an Amara Interior Blog Award!
