Everly and Eloise's Shared Room - Bluestone HIll

I don't like change. I resist it like my toddler does a spoonful of spinach: I see it coming and hide my face. I have been planning this shared bedroom since before Christmas but I'm not sure if I will ever pull the trigger. I love routine and loathe transitions, and even though there are many benefits to bringing Lucie (Eloise...who we call Lucie but I like to throw her real name out there every now and then so we don't forget it) downstairs with the rest of us, I am hesitant to upset the balance when they both sleep well. So, while it may take an act of God to get me to initiate the change, the room is starting to LOOK like a shared room, if not actually be a shared room. Lucie knows the second bed is hers, but she hasn't questioned why she doesn't actually sleep in it...yet. Maybe one night she'll just say, "Mom, would you move me already?" and then I'll know it's time.

We got a second set of bedding in Goldie Dots for Lucie's bed from our sponsor Beddy's. I literally cannot say enough about how much we love this bedding. It couldn't be any more practical, and it looks so cute! It's easy to wash, easy to put on, and easy for Everly to make herself each morning...a fact which we are both very proud of!

I got these adorable pillows here at Christmastime and I've kept them through January and February. I love how they go perfectly with our "There Is Such a Place" Children's Story Print Set - probably because Lucy (MsCraftberrybush) illustrated the prints!

One of the best things about having older cousins is the hand-me-downs; Everly wears these Joyfolie shoes from Lillie and Lola every day when she plays dress up:

This teepee that Sugar Shack Teepees sent is adorable and I can't wait to see how much the girls love it but I'm waiting until after we move Lucie in to give them as a reward when they go to sleep without too much commotion (hopefully after the first night...but probably after many nights of Lucie jabbering for hours and keeping her sister up...) The girls are both as obsessed with stories as I had hoped they would be (and hoping it stays that way!) and I have a feeling this teepee is always going to be filled with books...

I was looking for the perfect print or painting to bring more pink into the room and just couldn't find what I had in my head, so I finally went ahead and tried making one myself after watching a tutorial from Lucy Akins (MsCraftberrybush)...It looks nothing like hers and isn't exactly what I was hoping for, but my critic is a three year old so it got good reviews! :) I still have my eye out, but for now, there is some pink on this wall, and I had so much fun making it!

Deann's Floral Artwork

We often get asked about all of the beautiful artwork by Deann in our home. One of the pieces we get asked about the most often is this beautiful floral piece called Courage to Bloom that we hung in our dining room in our last house. It has not been available for months but today Deann has released her Home Grown Collection and it is now available again for a limited time along with several new pieces! You have to head over and check them all out. And if you use the code DEARLILLIE at checkout you can get 10% off your order on anything from the Home Grown Collection!

Here are a few more shots of it in our old dining room:

And here is where we hung in in our new home! I love it just as much against the dark wall in our new living room as I did agains the white one in our dining room.

Our New Fireplace Mantel and Full Before and After Shots of our Family Room and Breakfast Area

Our new mantel is finished and I am so excited to have this project done! When we first made an offer on this house back in October the first thing I did was have the woodworker who built the hood in our last house come over to look at this space to see if the ideas that I had for the mantle, coffee bar and window seat would work. Right away we were on the same page and I was so excited. The only drawback was that he was booked through the end of January so I knew I was going to have to be patient. I kept busy tackling a million other projects though which helped the time pass quite quickly and now this room is finished except for a few minor finishing details. Yay!!!!! He is so incredibly talented and I could not possibly be more pleased with how the mantel turned out!!!!!  (I still need to add some photos or artwork to one wall, and I need to paint the mantel and window seat - right now they are just primed and there are a few other little minor details I want to finish up like switching out the hinges on the lower part of the bookshelves and the handles and pulls on the coffee bar area).

It kind of killed me to have to hang the TV above the fireplace and to have to cover the beautiful woodwork he had done above the mantel but functionally speaking this was the best place for the TV and so I had come to terms with that before we had even moved in - ha! And now that it is up there I have to say I am so happy with how it turned out and love it! 

So, here are a bunch of before and after angles of this whole space and then below that are some more detailed type shots (and then as always, there is a detailed source list at the end). 

I had planned on finding some different things for these shelves but when we moved in I ended up being able to use all things we already owned to fill them and now I've gotten so used to it that I'm not sure I'll bother switching it up. We keep our blurb books which contain all of my "real camera" pictures of the girls over on this side:

And then we keep our chatbooks collection which has all of my cell phone type photos here over on this side:

 And here is a few looking from the kitchen. The kitchen had been remodeled right before the house was put on the market so even though there are a few things I wish I could change we will probably leave it as is for a while. I did do a few minor things like switch out the cabinet pulls to these pretty antique brass ones from Pottery Barn and the faucet (which we will share in another post in a couple of weeks).

And here are some wide angle shots:
