Shopping my own home

I am notorious for not unpacking. It is one of my dirty little secrets... we can go on holiday and two months later the items I don't use daily will still be sitting in the suitcase on a chair in my closet. My most embarrassing evidence of this trait is the 4 boxes of random office items/books and papers that are STILL fully packed up in a corner of the basement from our last house (which we moved out of 4 years ago!!!). Not cool, but on my giant to do list these things usually rank near the bottom.

I made a little personal pact with myself that I wouldn't pull these shenanigans with all the stuff coming home from Lexington. Mainly, the more stuff I took over there the more I realized I could use a little more fluff and filler in my own house. But also, why stuff such fun, beautiful stuff in bags in the basement? 

So I've been a busy little bee, feeling like I just went on a mini shopping spree! No major changes, just little additions to add some warmth and color for Fall.
Think I found the new wall color for in here!! Can't wait to get it up on the walls.

The sheets have all gone back to warm, cream linens. I LOVED the crisp contrast the navy bedding had for Spring/Summer but want the familiar, softness of all white for the coming Winter months.
This $30 clearance TJ Maxx mirror went from one foyer to another. As many of you on instagram know, I am thrilled to bring in the pros to finally finish up our stairs with wood. I think we've made a wise decision, after nearly two years later we just aren't making it happen. I am hopefully they will be done before Winter.

The mirror picks up all the blues from my 'ship wall' (which has grown by 2 since this photo!). Once the foyer is 'done' I think it *may* just be my favorite part of the house. I was sold on the house 15 seconds after walking in just because of the foyer, it has always made me so happy to walk through the door every day.

I just have to share my funny little guy photobombing my shot! He's perfected the innocent look, but I know he was being a rascal.

Stay tuned later today for the winner of our SaSea pillow giveaway!!
