Guess what’s happening today in Colorado?? SNOW. Yes, you read that right. White fluffy snow and frigid temperatures are in the forecast today and I’m less than thrilled about it. This is WAY earlier that usual and it’s especially hard to adjust to when it’s been over 90 degrees for the last several days. How does this even happen?! I mean really, how does Mother Nature go from summer to winter in like 12 hours. Good grief. It’s a lot of crapola if you ask me, but thankfully it’s a two day storm and we should back to normal temperatures by Wednesday. One can hope! Anyway, enough about all that malarky. Let’s chat about some fun updates in the kitchen and breakfast nook. We’ve made lots of changes and I’m excited to share them all today.
So the first big change here is all the light fixtures!! We finally got our lights in from Arhaus and I’m completely smitten with them. They were definitely worth the wait and I’m so glad I decided to go with lanterns over the bar. They’re just classic and timeless. We also painted the back door black, (it was originally white) and I love that contrast with the walls. Plus we have barstools now!!
So much has changed in the little breakfast nook too! We added curtains, which gave this spot a much more cozy, inviting feel. I just love the way curtains add that extra layer of texture! Next we added this incredible wooden light fixture, which is basically like a work of art. It even matches our floor!! It’s definitely a statement piece.
It’s been so fun to see all these changes happen in the last few weeks. Our little house on the prairie is slowly starting to feel like home and I love it. Plus all the natural light in here is just amazing! Every morning I sit at this table and drink my coffee–it’s the perfect spot to take in the view and spend time with God before the day gets started.
Well I’m off to find my winter boots and parka, but I hope you have the best day and a fabulous week. xoxo
