Nautical/ Rustic Inspired Summer Living Room

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to change things up design wise. So what better way than to have have a "summer" living room?? I think that if I can change it up slightly for summer & winter, then I would be happy. The base pieces will always stay the same. Just changing up the pillows and some decor pieces will help me do that!

Here is my idea:

I have already ordered the red ticking stripe pillow covers. I have the vintage Canada travel posters too!
I have been trying to hunt down some of the items from Target's Nautical Collection. But our Target's here don't have most of the items :(

Our next order of business is building the Ana White Rustic X Coffee Table. I think the weathered grey stain will look amazing!

Then eventually we can do side tables as well!

I would love to get rid of the brown leather couches but that just isn't going to happen anytime soon. There is nothing really wrong with them and they sure hide mess that my kids gets into!

So stay tuned for more updates!!! I am super excited!!

Master Bedroom Makeover....FINALLY!!!

Master Bedroom Makeover... Finally!!

So, I have never really liked our master bedroom decor. I have mentioned it a few times. I have tried to work with what I have, but it never felt "right". Last month I sold our entire bedroom set. We have been sleeping with our mattress on the floor ever since. It sucks!

Last week, I sold a few more things and we got started on building a farmhouse bed from Ana White plans. It is looking amazing!! Hopefully we can finish and put it all together very soon.

But seeing the beautiful bed made me realize that I needed to change a few more things. i think that I will have to paint the room one shade darker. Right now it is SW Comfort Gray but I need to go to SW Oyster Bay to get some contrast with the white bed. I REALLY do not want to re-paint but we will see I guess.

I also now want to build two night stands like these from Ana White. I want to bring in the warm wood tones and the rustic element.

Then on the other side of the room I would like to sell my existing console table and build these instead.

I am beyond ridiculously excited for how it would look if we get it all done!!

Now I just have to convince my hubby to help me out :)

Here is the Master Bedroom Mood Board for what I am thinking. It has a rustic but nautical vibe to it.
