Big News, We’re Building a Home!

My husband and I moved to Madison, Alabama (right outside of Huntsville) two and a half years ago. We’ve been renting a really nice house and have started to lay down roots.  We’ve grown to love the area, made friends, and have great jobs. Due to those things, we decided it was time to take the plunge and build a house here, our first home, and we’re so excited! I already have big dreams for what the inside of our home will look like. I love to decorate and will be in my glory as we are completely starting over with everything: rugs, furniture, accessories, etc.!

These days there is SO much inspiration out there! It is a blessing and a curse all in one. Deciding on decor style, paint colors, and house options can be overwhelming, even for someone who knows what they like! I hadn’t decided on anything until I came across these lamps, which totally solidified the look I am going to go with in our formal living room. I love the traditional style of these lamps and how, when paired with the right furniture {this is key}, they can look so fresh and chic!

My new lamps temporarily hanging out in my office until our new home is completed!

What do you think about the blue + white look? Have any of you been through the process of building a home?
