At this point, it feels like my home will never be finished. As we speak, an air conditioner is being installed in my studio. PTL!
Later this week, our drapes and window shades are being installed, which will (hopefully) make a big difference in the way the house feels.
Since quarantine began, I have done 100% of my home decor shopping online. For those of you who have been following along on our Nashville home journey, this will just be a little update on some areas and pieces of furniture we’ve recently added.
Our living room was a massive project because of the fireplace. If you missed the before and after, check out this blog post.
Since the fireplace post, a lot of our living room pieces have been delivered. Here are some updates…
As you can see, we did a full on paint refresh. All of the trimwork and most walls in our house have now been painted. We went with lighter and brighter shades and let me just say, they made a world of difference.
In the living room, we’re having custom drapes made for the doors, but leaving the plantation shutters on the windows.
Since the above photo was taken, I’ve layered the area rug (which I love) with an ivory jute rug. My seagrass coffee table is from Restoration Hardware, but I linked a couple of similar options below.

I’m thrilled that although the house isn’t finished, I’m finding cozy spaces in our home like the one pictured above. I shared this Sunday morning cozy spot on my Instagram Stories yesterday.
My coffee table isn’t quite up to my standards yet… But I thought I’d share what’s currently displayed on it anyways. Like I said in this blog post fresh flowers are a must in my house.
As for the rest of the house… Here are the projects we have not yet started:
- Kitchen countertop is being replaced. We knew this when we bought the house, the island has three very large cracks in it and the seller took that into consideration in our negotiations.
- Kitchen backsplash will be updated. After living with the painted brick for some time, it’s just still not what Matt and I want. We’ve started looking at other options.
- Master bedroom fireplace. We loved our fireplace in our master in LA and want to have one here too.
- Guest house/studio expansion. The biggest job on the books.
These are the largest projects, we still have a ton of smaller projects to complete. But honestly, is a house ever really done? Nah.
The playroom is starting to shape up. Our rug should be arriving this week and the final touches will hopefully be completed in the next couple of weeks. I can’t wait to share that space with you!
Kenny’s nursery only has a small amount of painting and a few shelves that need styled, then her room will be complete! Her bathroom still requires work…
Our master bedroom is going to be the last room to be finished since we have such a large project ahead of us.
Our back patio is awaiting a couple of custom chairs and it will be pretty much complete! The front porch, however, has not even been touched yet lol.
