New Home – The “Must-Do” List


We did it! We are officially all moved into our new home and what a relief. We still have a few more boxes left to unpack before we are completely settled. But it’s starting to feel like home, slowly but surely.

Our new home is 12 years old so there isn’t much to do in terms of renovations. The only things we plan to change are esthetics. My priorities are light fixtures, bathroom mirrors, and painting. The mid-nineties had some interesting design elements. The colors that were used to paint the bathrooms were the same colors my parents painted our childhood home in ’93. So it’s time for an update.

Here are a few of the things we plan to change ASAP:front-door-paintThis margarita pistachio bile green is at the top of my list. I think the former owners loved to vacation down south because the Mexico vibe is real in this entry way. The terracotta-esque tiles are also on the to-do list but likely not until the summer or fall. You can also see in the powder room is some lovely (not) butter-yellow paint which I can’t wait to cover up. master-bedroom-fan-paint

This golden yellow is in the master bedroom and it sucks. Nothing we own matches it. I want to paint it ASAP but have no sweet clue what color. As long as it’s not this color I’ll be happy! The ceiling fan is also on the chopping block. I can appreciate the practicality of a ceiling fan with 12-foot ceilings but I really don’t want to lay in bed and stare at that thing.

This is the view from the Living room. As you can see that lovely butter yellow make another appearance up on the mezzanine. You also can see that margarita green in the foyer from here. Also, that dining room light. Switching that up will really make the space more suited to our taste. I’m thinking something industrial with some Edison bulbs.

Now that we are in our new home you’ll be sure to see lots of posts about the transformation our home is sure to make over the coming months. Make sure you’re following me over on Instagram for all the latest updates!
