It took me a little bit to get going, but I’m finally doing some recaps of 2018. I really enjoy looking back and reflecting on all that happened in the last year. I can get so caught up in what needs to happen today, that I forget all that was accomplished already! We’ve been in our house almost 9 years now and I’m so happy here. I love the way home feels and we made some updates that have made it even better this year!
Home Decor and Organization 2018
Spring is on the horizon and I shared how we welcomed the change of seasons in this post.
I always love a good organizing challenge and I’m thrilled to report that our pantry has stayed organized all year!
I got majorly inspired by my friend Jen to start a strict nighttime cleaning routine and I’ve stuck with it. I also tidy the living room after this, including fluffing the pillows on the couch. I love waking up to a clean kitchen and living room!
Of course with young kids at home, we still have lots of toys around. I shared how I keep them organized in this post.
When we built our home, one of the things I took my time with was creating a closet that would be both organized and functional. I’ve tweaked it over the years and I’m finally happy with how everything is organized for easy access.
One of my favorite projects this year was my master bedroom makeover. I absolutely love how it turned out with the clean, feminine vibe. It’s also the first room in our home to get a splash of wallpaper!
While we were at it, I also freshened up the sitting room. It feels so peaceful in this space now.
James’ room also got a makeover this year and it suits him perfectly. It’s still fun and playful, but can also grow with him for several years.
Our Fall front porch was one of my most liked pictures on Instagram this year! I think y’all were excited to welcome the coziness of Fall!
We kept our Christmas decor more simple this year, but it still felt festive and warm. I’ve since taken down all the holiday decor in the downstairs, but everything is still up on the second floor!
Also, I still get lots of questions about the the paint colors in our home, so this post will answer most of those questions!
HOME DECOR PLANS FOR 2019
I’m really happy with our home, but there are still a few things I’d like to do:
Dining Room – I’d love to update the furniture and add a bold wallpaper to that room and actually use it more.
Half Bath – We have a downstairs half bath that I’ve rarely shown because there’s not much to see and there’s no natural light so it doesn’t photograph well. It would be great to give that small but highly used space a makeover and give it more personality.
Outside, I want to plant a garden and freshen up our landscaping. Maybe that’s a project for this Spring!
What’s on your home decor agenda this year?!
