three things, details

Details, details.. I find myself really fine tuning the details in our home. My style is ever evolving and I find myself becoming more and more comfortable and sure of my style. What a great feeling that is! I spent today shopping within the house and making slight alterations to the rooms to use the pieces I love. Editing and styling.. it's amazing what you can find in your own space!

Here are some gorgeous examples of things I'm focusing on ( and these gorgeous spaces are just examples.... not mine :) )

lighting. What a difference great lighting can make!
millwork. We did ours a few years ago now, and I think it's one of the best decisions we've ever made!

Styling.. simple but effective styling.

We can't expect our homes to be perfect all the time, but by styling a few areas that sit undisturbed you can still have gorgeous and kid friendly :)

Last year I painted the inside of our exterior doors black. It was a well seen trend and since my exterior doors were already black it seemed a great decision. I loved it. No question... but now I'm going in the opposite direction and lightening everything. I painted them a barely there grey yesterday and oh my gosh the whole house opened up because of it. Crazy how something so simple made such a difference to me!

That first picture is so beautiful. I am detail oriented too and with our nonstop renovation the details are often front and center. But to me, they make the room.
