We Bought a New House... and I'm going crazy on Pinterest

I have been distracted lately.  You may have noticed.  We have some major news... we bought a new house!  Or, I guess, we're buying a new house.  Certain things, like, the appraisal and closing still have to happen, but the plan is to buy the house.  In one month.

So, yes, I've been distracted.  Then I thought, instead of letting my endless search for interior inspiration distract me, I decided to bring you along.

I've been going Pinterest crazy (follow all of my pins here) pinning inspiration photos, paint colors, chairs (oh, the chairs...) and general I love everything about this photo photos. 

Follow along as I share the journey of designing our new home.  Note, I won't be sharing the photos of the actual home until we move at the end of next month to keep the current owner's privacy.  And to not jinx the closing!

So, I've listed some of my new Pinterest Boards below that I'll be updating with inspiration as I come across it.  To follow all of my Pinterest boards (recipes, home inspiration, wish list, clothes, baby...) click here.

Best of luck with the finalization of your new home purchase. ~ Carrie

  11. I know, we bought a new home last year and it has really large rooms and ceilings and BIG everything. It turned everything we had into what I call "dollhouse" furniture. Have had to start all over which has made Pinterest so helpful. I love the kitchen pic you posted above, the subway tiles are my fave in a kitchen.

  12. HI jenny,
    I love pinterest and have been pinning great house inspirations. I love those DR chairs and found them on for a bit cheaper ;) Dark gray/oatmeal fabric options....Good luck!

  13. Make sure you post all the decor details paint colors and create a source list by room. It would be so helpful. Thanks

  14. Very exciting! I've been thinking a lot about your blog lately; we are relocating form North Carolina to the Boston area (Andover) and just put an offer on a house as well. Look forward to your decorating posts and I just added you on my pinterest account. Can't wait to see all the great stuff you pick out!

  15. Pinterest is all our dreams come true. Great to start from scratch with good ideas.

  16. This is big news! I am so excited to look at your pinterest boards and to see pictures of the new house. Hope you are staying in that cute town!


  17. We just found a new apartment and I'm in the midst of the same process. We live overseas and had to leave our scant collection of furniture behind, so this apartment is really going to be a fun adventure for us! Can't wait to peruse your boards for inspiration.

    Carrie - We will actually be moving back home to Fairway (KC area). More details to come!

  20. I admire your conviction. Hiring an agent could totally help you speed things up. You can surely obtain a house in a month in spite of all the paperwork and other processes you will be undergoing. Speaking of it, it’s almost a month now. How’s the progress of your house buying objective?

  21. It’s been 4 months already, so how are you all doing in your new home now? You did a good job in letting yourself be inspired with the thousands of designs you can find online. It will indeed give you a whole new perspective and inspiration for your home. Anyway, I hope you tour us around in your new home soon! :)
