Dastardly Decor - Part I

It's dastardly because it takes way too much of my time and brain space and yet the pictures don't seem to do it justice!  I feel like everything looks better in real life and the pictures don't portray how much time and effort I've put into all of this!  Sigh.  Anyway, here's the first round of pictures of our decorated home.  These are the rooms that are pretty much finished.  And that were clean.  :)  The loft is finished but is a horrible mess right now (go figure) and the office is pretty much done, I just have to hang up some shelves.  There's still some final touches in each of these rooms, but like I said before, I know none of you care or want to wait!  So, here they are!

This is the dining room:



This is the family room:




The kitchen:



Cole's Bedroom (Ava's and Claire's aren't totally finished yet):

Okay so this might sound totally random but I came across your blog because I goggled home decorating tips and your link came up so I clicked on it and looked at your pictures. Well I noticed your black entertainment center and I have been on the search for one and yours looks just what I am looking for. So do you mind telling me where you got it?
Anyways, I know so random. But your house looks cute, you have great style.

I can't believe you have that many rooms clean!!! (okay I am totally kidding) I love it. My favorites are the green room and that amazing chair and wall collage.

Heidi said...

Cute!! You've done a LOT in the short time you've lived there.

love that green in the dining room, is it the same shade you had in your last home? nice colors, nice decor, I can't wait to see more. Lots more space than before, very nice.

Everything looks so great, and I know what you mean, everything is always better in real life. The human eye is amazing isn't it? I always think that when I look at pictures of a beautiful place we've been, or my children, they just never look as good as they do through my own eyes.

You have done such a nice job, it takes so much time and effort! Way to go. :)

Great Work Cassidy. I with Karen. Now I need to do some self help chanting to keep myself out of depression. JK. I love my house, well, sort of.

Wisconsin Willeys said...

Jana said...

Wow! You have been working hard! It looks great! I am excited to see it in real life someday. What a compliment that some random person loves your decorating and entertainment center! And more importantly...Congrats on #6 to be!

Amy and the boys said...

Cass, you did a bang up job! Decorating takes SO much time and effort. I am totally impressed. Your home looks so different with everything in it now. Are you loving the weather?!

Bonnie and Brian Wayne said...

HELLLOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

FINALLY you are posting pics of your house! I was getting impatient. And yes - they are awesome.

Is the color of your Master Bedroom called "french toast" by any chance. That looks just like the color we had in ours. What are the names of the paint in your living room and dining room?

Nielsen Family said...

You guys did a great job!!!! Great looking house!

Stephanie said...

Cassidy -- it looks beautiful! I can't wait to have a house to decorate someday. (Although I guess we would first need to be able to afford a house, and then to afford all the furnishings and decorations). :)
Congratualtions on the baby. My guess is that it's a boy. Glad you're feeling well so far.
