Decorating for Winter

Happy New Year friends! It has been months since I last blogged here. I have been spending a lot of time over on Instagram where I share daily. I need to add the IG link to my blog, but I need to figure out how to do that. If you want to find me there, look for @thelongawaitedhome.

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice in the Kitchen

I love spending time in my kitchen in the fall.  After a summer of spending long days outdoors, mostly grilling or eating out, I can't wait to start cooking comfort foods again.

Pops of Fall Color

Today I am showing you all our family/tv room.  In this room I added those "pops of color" everyone talks about.  I am not a big fan of pops of color as I find it distracting most of the time, but I really, really love it in fall. I only add color to our home for fall and Christmas.  Aside from that, I keep things pretty neutral around here.

Decorating for Fall with Neutrals

The pre-fall weather has been incredibly warm and sunny in New Hampshire. It is a lovely gift considering so many parts are the country are experiencing extreme and devastating weather right now. We take it while we can, knowing there is a long winter ahead of us. Today I'm showing you all our living room decorated for fall.

Mid-summer, the height of summer in New England.  The flower gardens are at their peak now.  Our gardens are mostly reds and yellows with pops of purple and orange - the "hot" colors.  It is the complete opposite of the inside of our home which is white, neutrals and wood, with almost no color most of the time.  I especially like the inside to be all neutrals in the summer.  It just seems to make it feel cooler, plus it is an escape from the color overload outside.

Teeny Tiny Laundry Room Solutions

Konmari Laundry Room

This is our very small laundry room which is the only downstairs bathroom, so it also serves as our guest restroom.

New Shelves for the Coffee Bar

It has taken a lot of tweaking, but I think the Coffee Bar is finally complete.  We made the shelves this week and I think we found the balance it needed.
