It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 2 months since we moved to our new home. I envisioned having a good update to share with you all by now, that was wishful thinking on my part! Our construction journey took 7 months longer than anticipated, so we’ve been taking our time getting settled in. To be honest, we still have quite a few of boxes to unpack! My office is still unfinished and majority of our furniture has yet to arrive.
On the plus side, we finally got our address numbers up, my hubby spent a few days clearing our lot to improve our view and my office door is now a pretty shade of pink and our forever home is feeling more and more like home every day.
You may have noticed that the backdrops of my photos have changed over the last few months. I’m still getting used to the lighting here, which is a major transition from our old home. We were surrounded by trees and I had one tiny window and dark walls so natural lighting was always a challenge.
I’ve discovered a little corner in the kitchen of our new home where I love to shoot, because the natural light there is perfect. That’s the same place that I love to sit and enjoy my tea and meals while the sun shines in. Eventually that space will be a built-in nook for my little family of four, but for now I’m enjoying the openness.
Here’s a closer look at a few of my decorative details of our new home, including my pink office door. I’ll let you in on a little secret. The door is actually only pink on one side. This was a compromise that my hubby and I made, but I love how it turned out! I used PPG Paint in Powder Rose. The other side of the door is completely white.
My hubby and I decided on this modern 3-piece chandelier for our entryway. I think every home should have one major statement piece and this is ours. We chose it because it can be seen through the windows of our tower (stairwell) and truly fits the contemporary, yet elegant design of our home. The diamond like baguette lights and 3 tier design is my favorite part. When the sun light hits it, it sparkles.
This picture was taken on the night that we moved in. I set my self timer and tripod and ran back and forth jumping in the photo until we got a good shot. Kind of funny to envision but I loved that we captured this moment. Then, shortly after moving in I was able to remove that silly splint from my right hand. I wore that thing for 8 weeks after having tendon repair surgery and was happy to see it go! The timing couldn’t have been better.
