Good morning lovelies and HAPPY HUMP DAY!! I know many of you are beyond eager for a glimpse into our new home and while I PROMISE you’ll get that … actually, we’re aiming to do a MASSIVE photo shoot this coming September to share with you! Lol … omg … I can just hear you guys now … “September?! Are you freakin’ serious, Jill?? We’ve been waiting for SO LONG!” Am I right?? Whelp … it takes a while to get everything decorated and feeling like “home” and I don’t want to rush it! SO for now, I’m going to share my decor inspo with you instead!! …
A couple of things to admit here, one being that I love shopping online (which most of you already know). And two being that I LOVE ordering my decor from Wayfair. Yes, this IS a sponsored post, BUT I continue to choose to work with them because they have SO much to choose from, the shipping is easy peasy (for all you Canadians, you don’t need to go to the border to pick it up) and the quality is amazing! At the end of my work day, I could put Leo to bed, eat dinner, have a bath, and literally shop from my bed rather than wasting time in a car, driving around everywhere with a new babe!! Mom WIN right there! However, I did HAVE to stop in at a few local stores to cruise their decor as well … it’s called “therapy” … lol. The second reason being that their search function is ridiculously good, you can basically find ANYTHING on their site using different keywords and filters … so much so that I once tried searching “Hot male chef who likes to cook delicious meals and serve wine” but that proved to be too much for their search function. LOL. Kidding … kind of.
Anyways, back to the decor and what inspired me to go with some of the items I chose! Turns out designing and building our home has been SO much more overwhelming than I had anticipated! We sold our old house fully furnished except for some keep sakes so redecorating was a must. When it came down to decor for this home I wanted to steer away from my usual “white, feminine, traditional” items to more “rustic, farmhouse” items. I wanted this home to be COMFY, functional, and cozy, but still look put together, organized, clean, airy, and FRESH!!! SO I had to look for decor that was not only more baby friendly but also Nacho friendly and Bachelorette wine drinking night friendly … lol … get my drift?!
As you can tell from a few of the larger items above, I tried to go a little bit darker when it came down to the furniture in our living room because all white might prove to be a little more challenging to keep clean with a soon to be toddler running around with his furry BFF (and by “Furry BFF” I mean Nacho, not Justin … LOL!) so we ended up going with the dark blue club chairs and a grey ottoman just for that purpose!
Not only did I order furniture and decor from Wayfair but also lighting, stools, patio umbrellas and believe it or not, our BBQ!! If you’re on the hunt for a BBQ, Justin and I actually did a lot of research on BBQ’s before purchasing one and we found the best deal through Wayfair (no, this isn’t a just a plug for them, it’s the HONEST truth)! I also couldn’t resist the pineapple pendant for the patio and that CUTE Hello doormat … LOVE!
