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.

  7. Congratulations! I can't wait to check out your pins to see all the great inspiration. Just curious....are you staying in Concord or moving back to Kansas City??? So very exciting to plan all the details of your new home. We bought a new home in March that we have been doing a full scale remodel to. It is soooo much fun to plan all the details of what the finished product will be. Very excited that I will be able to look to one of my fav bloggers for inspiration. 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.

  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.

  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! :)
