"Let's Getaway" Our tropical themed guestroom...


The only rooms that got any attention after we moved in were the girls room. Obviously because those are the most fun! However now with the dining room ORC challenge over I started focusing on our guestroom upstairs.  (And to be honest because we have lots of family and friends comming to visit this summer)  

I knew I wanted navy and white bedding in this room.  I can't even tell you why.  All I know is even before we bought this house I always wanted a navy and white striped bed in a guestroom.  That's totally normal right?  Dreaming of decorating a guestroom you don't actually have?   Okay good..thought so! :)

Let me tell you finding navy and white striped bedding is easy.  Finding quality navy and white striped bedding with great reviews...that was a challenge.  Challenge accepted.

Below I've linked what I have bought for the room thus far.  I'm keeping it simple so there is more space (and easier to clean) and to just give the room a more spacious feel.  And for the record...yes, that is a giant wooden fish above the bed.  (It is a handmade piece I found on Etsy a few years ago for my husband)

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…
