Cottage Style Stuff

It’s been a shuffle-y couple of months around here, but now that the wall paint is dry, we’ve started putting things back into place.

There’s still a fireplace to paint (Simply White), and tile to (temporarily) cover up…

…but things are definitely starting to feel more like us around here.

I’ve had the shelf above (and below) for so long…but I never could find the right place to hang them.

I’ve been having a lot fun listening to the walls in this house though. You do that too, I’m sure. Walk around with some “thing” you love…holding it up, here and there. You get someone to hold it up for you, so you can walk by it to make sure there’s enough room to comfortably pass by…or to see how it plays with the other colors in the room. You know the drill. :)

We’re making one more little kitchen/living/dining room wall-related change today…


…then we’re hitting the road to the Midwest. I’m really looking forward to seeing my family in Minnesota and visiting friends and flea markets along the way!

    Do you have any suggestions of where I could look to find something similar to the 3-compartment wire hanging bins? I absolutely love that!

    I am not sure what part of Minnesota you are going to, but Ely is a MUST! Ely’s garage sales are out of this world!

    Layla, you’re breathing new life into that space! It’s so nice to see some updated photos and see how you’ve used things in your new home. And the light and airy wall colors make such an impact. You’re giving me the repainting bug. The hubby won’t be happy 😉

    I love your decorating style! Things look great and the place looks so inviting!

    Wish the weather were better for you in Minnesota (my hometown), but hope you had a nice trip!
