One Month Updates

We've been in our new home about a month now, and can I just say it is so good to be home?! I do wish we were a little further along, but we're doing the best we can with my husband's crazy work hours. I said I hoped to be fully unpacked by Christmas, and it looks like we're still on track for that.

Our main level is almost finished. We're still picking out paint colors, so we haven't hung up any art yet, but the furniture is coming together. This is our floor plan in the Ryan Homes Olsen model.

My office is still a work in progress, but it's super close. I'm waiting on a backordered curtain rod and still need to find a bigger area rug. Our family room is also in progress. Our TV is way too small for the space, so we're shopping for a new one. Once we settle on a size, we're going to build a TV stand and matching end tables for it. We did get our new couch in and it looks great though.

Here's our morning room. It's been so dreary and overcast here in Ohio, so this is as good as the natural light gets. ;) I'm still trying to figure out what to do for window treatments. We've hung curtains everywhere else, so I want to keep this area light and airy. We're debating between some kind of cornice board or trim all the way around the windows.

Before moving in, I thought the ceiling light would be my favorite part of the room. It's a Pottery Barn Capiz Flower Pendant. I grabbed this one and two matching flush mounts months ago in anticipation of our move. I do love the way it looks, but it's the chairs that have won me over.

I had bought the West Elm table earlier this year at the Pottery Barn outlet and just needed chairs for it. After three tries, I found these Ashley Furniture Mestler chairs in antique green from Wayfair. They are the perfect mix or blue and green; we actually had a sunny day when we put them together to grab this picture. They play so well against my Ravella Water Ornamental Leaf Border rug, also from Wayfair.

I also worked on our dining room, finally getting the curtains hung up. I really want to replace the light fixture in here and that wall is screaming for art, but I'm happy with the progress. It's the Banks table from Pottery Barn paired with dining chairs from Target. Yes, target! The rug is from Home Goods.

The dining room flows through to the living room, so the entry way is nice and open. Again, screaming for paint and wall art.

Our living room chairs are also from Target. I picked up the funky gray shelf and side table from Home Goods. The sheers are Wayfair.

Finally, we replaced our foyer light. We lovingly referred to the builder option as 'the bullet' and are happy to have it gone.

We replaced it with a Birch Lane Tuscany Chandelier from {you guessed it} Wayfair.

As far as Ryan Homes, we're still working on our list of repairs after closing. Contractors have been here for two days so far, and it looks like it will take 1-2 more to get everything finished. I'll go over our list and 30 day inspection results once everything is final.

Here's to hoping in another two weeks we'll have our master bedroom, guest room, and family room finished!
