All moved in...

house1
This last week has been a whirlwind kind of week.  We moved in a week ago this last Saturday.  The first night we just slept on mattresses, enjoyed the house on Sunday - then we went crazy on Monday and got the main floor to look like our home.  It has been hard going back and forth from our last house, not for Clint, but for me because I have been a little sentimental about it.  But, I am excited for our new home!  We plan on being here for the rest of our lives, so our kids will only remember this house I am sure.  
We survived the building process together and it wasn't that hard this time (we have built before) because Clint and I were really great at compromising.  I picked the colors of the inside of the house and Clint picked the outside.  I think both colors schemes worked out well.
 
house2
This is our entry and I just love it.  We already had all the pictures and the clock so it was nice to get those on the wall. One of my favorite things about our house is our railing. The builders did a beautiful job.

house3
Clint and I have been to Europe several times as you know and we wanted to give our home a little rustic feel to it.  The builders had this wall (as seen in rock) as only an indent and it just didn't look right to me at first.  Clint came up with the idea to have stone there and now I think it looks amazing.  The pictures on the wall are from Paris, Bucharest and Rome.  I already had the lamp but changed the shade to the fun teal design (target) and the lantern, plant and teal rug are from HomeGoods.

 house4
We kept our sectionals, but with all the brown I needed to add some color.  So......
house5
I found this rug.  I love it.  It is bright and fun and fits perfectly in our family room.  I still need to find some hot pink pillows for the couch, but it is coming along.

house6
Our dining area is fun.  The watermelon picture was an impulse buy.  I loved it when I saw it and it is the perfect bright color for this area.

 house7
The rug is from target and my curtains are from Lowe's.  I absolutely love each one of these, especially the curtains.  It is the perfect color and print.

house8
I wanted a light kitchen, but I wanted the island to be a darker wood stain - the kids would have marked up the white cabinets while sitting there for sure. This was the better option, I think.  We are waiting for our other bar stools to arrive, so now the kids just fight over who gets to sit at the island ;-)

 house9
I found this fun little chair at HomeGoods.  It fits perfectly in our entry.

house10
This last Christmas Clint bought me this Christus Statue. He is very thoughtful because he knows how much I love Jesus.  It fits perfectly in our little notch that leads to our room.  The rock wall accent is just perfect for this area. 

I still have more to share, but we are still getting up curtains and pictures in our other rooms.  I just had my machine moved into my studio today, so I will share pictures of the finished product as soon as I can. 

In the meantime, I will be getting ready for Phoenix! See you in two weeks!

Good for you, Judy -- I'm so happy for your family and glad things have gone smoothly. Your new home is lovely, especially all the personal touches. Your family room rug reminds me of some of your most cheerful quilting, and I see that sectional tossed full of quilt block pillows in bright colors. :-)

Shandra said...

Judi,

I LOVE IT!! It turned out so amazing. I can't believe you are already moved in. Everything looks beautiful. I am in love with your wood floor and your white kitchen. I think I might be drooling. J/K I can't wait to come and see it in a couple weeks. Love you guys and so happy for you!!!

Tiffany said...

Oh my goodness, it is GORGEOUS! All of it!

Wendy said...

Such a beautiful home Judi...may you have many years of love and blessings as you raise your family in your forever home...love, love the paisley rug...

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Stunning home!

Lou - Max and Louise Pattern Co said...

Wow, in a week and already having pictures on the wall! You have obviously been working hard. You're home is lovely.
I think the pink cushions will look great against the brown with your spectacular rug. Have you though of buying some pink homespun and quilting it to tie in with the rug? You could then make cushions from it.
Can't wait to see your sewing room.....

jojo said...

Beautiful home. Can't wait to see more pics.

Denise in PA said...

Wow, Judi, your new home is absolutely gorgeous - inside and out! Your first floor already looks like home. I just know your family will be very happy there in your "forever" home! o:)

Claudia said...

Judi
Love love your house, but I am in awe of your new book! Read it cover to cover when I got it. You are truly amazing!

Michele said...

It all looks fantastic. I'm going to save some of those ideas for when we build our next house. We did enjoy building this one and love it but when we get out of NY and move a little further south, we will build again. Next time I will have a plan for my studio in advance.

Tammy said...

What a beautiful home! You are going to make treasured memories for sure! Where did you buy the paisley rug? I love paisley.

missmarys said...

You are blessed.

I thought I was looking at a school dorm or something. That's one ginormous house. It seems that's the way things are in the US. Here (Canada) houses tend to be around 1100 square feet for regular folk, they get bigger for the well to do. It's beautiful though, congrats on your move!
