I am SO excited to start showing you all of the interior shots of the house now that we are all moved in! I have to preface that by saying these rooms are not complete in the least, but I promised myself (and the Mr.) I would take my time decorating this home and not just throw a bunch of stuff up on the walls for the sake of having a finished room to share on the blog. I’m really trying to be intentional this time around and only putting things in here that I truly love. Plus, I feel the best spaces are ones that are collected over time not thrown together overnight. That said, I didn’t want to leave you hanging all summer since you have all been so great following along this whole process. My hope is it’s fun to watch this house and my style evolve, and I can share new pieces as we go along.
First up, let’s take a peek at the dining area! I have had zillions of questions about the wood flooring we used throughout our house and this room is the best place to show it off. Hands down this flooring is my favorite thing in the house. I can’t say enough good things about it! Here is a close up:
The color is perfection. It has a really cool matte brushed finish that is perfect for the casual lake house vibe I was going for, and bonus, it hides dirt like insanely well. Seriously, I have only swept once this week, and I used to have to do it twice a day with our old darker floors. It also feels great on your feet; it’s so funny every person who has come in to see the house comments on how nice it feels! When they first installed it, I may have laid down and hugged it I was so excited to finally see it down, and it was just so much better than I thought.

Let’s get to the rest of the details – we found this table at a local furniture store it was the perfect rustic look I was looking for and 7 ft long so it can seat 8. I haven’t figured out if I want to add two more of the same chairs to the end or find different end chairs.
I love the clean lines of these chairs I chose. I debated for weeks over what style to go with, but these won out in the end. It’s hard to tell in these photos but they are a really pretty soft grey color, which coordinates with my grey pantry door in the kitchen (you can kind of see it in the background of this pic, but kitchen photos coming soon!).
You may remember these herb baskets from our last house. I love planting herbs in them because they are lightweight, look pretty and it’s easy to grab them to bring to the kitchen and snip what I need. They have a plastic liner in them to prevent water damage to the table.
I also love the way the black lights set everything off, they sort of ground all the white.
I can’t wait to have dinner parties at this table, just as soon as guests don’t have to trip over moving boxes to get to it ;)
Stay tuned for more room reveals in the next few weeks!
