My Coastal Craftsman Color Palette


As most of you know by now a few months ago my husband and I found our PERFECT house in our PERFECT neighborhood! We were determined to get this house despite having made peace with the fact we probably weren't going to move for a few more years. This house changed everything! It is literally like this house was made exactly for my family.  That being said it was a very emotional two months being under contract with some ups and downs and issues BUT finally last Friday we got the keys! 

We went there that night with dinner and champagne and hung out with the neighbors and let the girls run wild and it was basically pure bliss! I still can't believe this dream of a house is ours.  
The only good news of sitting in limbo for so long was that I got everything planned so that this week we could begin working on the things we need done.  
 
This post in particular is about the color palette of the house.  I'll be sharing lots of posts all dedicated to specific topics!

Our current home is just under 1300 sq feet and my new one is 2600! I could just die! I have so much storage and so much room, I literally just stare at my kitchen..:) But that is for another post. Back to the paint.
The home is almost brand new so the exterior is in perfect condition and a beautiful color already so I just need to change the interior colors.  My husband wants this house to be a little more modern, I want to stick with traditional craftsman style and of course add in the coastal charm! I suppose we could call this project "My Coastal Craftsman with a modern twist".  Haha! Or whatever...lets just call it MY DREAM! :)  

It's no secret I'm a BEHR girl so all my paint has come from Home Depot! 

BEHR Blowing Kisses

BEHR Graycloth

BEHR Broadway

BEHR Sweet Bianca

BEHR Offshore Mist


Now where are all these colors going?! Stay tuned this week and see!! Also, the two patterned pics from the collage above are actually removable wallpapers that I am using as well!! They can be purchased from WallPops!

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to

Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Our newest addition (Blue Rug Obsession)

Good Morning Friends!  Over break we added another BLU-tiful rug to the household.   In case you haven't noticed blue is kind of the running theme in this house (Our Coastal Craftsman) and I can't seem to get enough.  The kitchen needed a runner but I couldn't find one that was the exact length I wanted so instead I ordered a 3x5 rug.  This post contains affiliate links provided by Wayfair.
When you walk in my house you see the dining room rug (Link to buy dining room rug HERE ) and it has so many beautiful colors and keeps the room feeling light and bright.  The kitchen has a lot of light too but I didn't want something AS light just because I knew it would get a lot of traffic/ and or kitchen accidents.  



I almost went with the blue family room rug because FOR REAL it is SO gorgeous and SO soft (Link to buy family room rug HERE ) but I knew I wanted to make sure I had some aqua and just different shades of blue really to play with in the kitchen) 



So when I found th…
