house inspiration

We are very fortunate to have the home that we have. It's a brand new build, in a good neighborhood, close to work and good schools. It's beautiful. But because it's a new build, it's very plain. As in all of the walls are white, and everything in the entire house matches. It's beautiful, but it's cookie cutter.
We've started transforming each room slowly, and making our house our home. I, of course, went to Pinterest for most of my ideas when it came to each room.

here's a bit of my inspiration:

We have dark walnut cabinets in our kitchen, which are gorgeous. But it was different from the original farmhouse, white, vintage kitchen I was working on in our old home. No worries, Pinterest has my back on new ideas. I'm still planning on keeping the vintage and farmhouse part, just in a different color scheme.

I love, love, love our living room. It has super high ceilings and it's very open and cozy. I want it to be one of those rooms you walk into and say "ahh".

We made the biggest mistake ever in our old house when we painted our bedroom navy. Oh Lord, it made it so dark and tiny (and it was already small). As soon as we finished it, I immediately regretted it. So with this house, I made a radical change in the bedroom with lighter color schemes and more of an "airy" and open bedroom. So so so so so glad I did. I love it.

Our master bath is nice, but it's pretty plain. I'm going for something really relaxing, cause Lord knows I need some relaxation.

We wanted to go for something relaxing here as well, but different from the master bath. We decided to go with a beachy-spa thing (is that even a thing? we will make it a thing.). We think it'll be a fun theme when L is older, too.

Nothing too complicated here. I mean, it's where we keep the litter box and stuff, definitely not going to go all out, haha. But I would like it to be put together and clean, while being simple, too.

This is one of my favorite parts of the house. I loooove this spot, and I cannot wait for it to be finished! We have a "loft" as our second story, and it's a pretty large space. We are basically splitting the room in half, dedicating one half to a play room and the other to a movie room. Yes, like a large movie room.

*internally screams for joy*

Again, not too extravagant here. K and I both share an office, and we both have different ideas for each of our halves.

Can you tell that he's a musician?

I'm not too sure what our landscaping plans for the front are yet, but for the back patio, I have all the plans. We want it to be a spot that our friends and family can gather around for a cookout, bonfire, and just hanging out and having a good time in a nice, cozy, cute spot.

We do have a couple of other rooms in our house, like L's room and a spare bedroom. L's bedroom is already decorated (post to come!), and our spare bedroom is staying bare for a while.
While I know it's going to take forever *sigh*, I am so excited to see all the rooms when they are finished!
Do any of these ideas match your home?!
