The season we’re in.. Also known as.. Yes kids live here!

I was thinking something the other day..

How our house doesn’t feel like it feels when I’m at my parents or grandparents. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I’ve been trying to make it more homey. Which is silly since we’ve lived here for oh, 6 yearsish?

But maybe it’s my fear of knick-knacks? My parents always had those around.. Is that what was homey? I don’t know. But I want to try and make things warmer around here, cozier, and when people say “You have a white couch!? You’re nuts” I want them to see that YES kids live here.

Because it’s their house too.

So I started with a fun center piece, to encourage creativity for one.


To bring in COLOR.. lots of color.





And, to say yes, I have kids. And they like it here. :)

Plus it’s all in one tray so if I had to move it I could (We do at dinner, it gets moved to the buffet/dresser next to it.)

Oh, and we got a new bench. But more on that diddy later.

    I know what you mean, you just want it be a place where people come and take their shoes off and WANT to hang out, instead of being afraid they might break something. I get it, I want that for my home too.

    I know EXACTLY how you feel. I have said to my hubby lately how our house doesn’t feel “finished” and what you just said is why….kids live here!! I am going to make a centerpiece like that too! Thanks for the inspiration!
