Our Whole Home Color Palette

I feel like it’s been a HOT minute since I’ve posted on here. Life gets crazy for us around the start of October and it doesn’t stop until New Years Day! But I’m not complaining, this is my favorite time of year. I’ve been keeping pretty active on my Instagram, so make sure you are following over at @jncrothers to keep up-to-date with our current projects, trips and fun little lifestyle posts not featured here on the blog.

Speaking of Instagram,

I have had a TON of messages come through recently with requests for paint colors throughout our home. One sweet lady said that she had even searched through my entire blog trying to find them with no success. Oi! Huge miss on my part – I didn’t even think to tag the paint colors when I’m sharing updates in spaces of our home! So, today I’m going to give you a tour of our whole home color palette and give some tips and tricks on how to implement a whole home color palette in your home.

Preparing for a Puppy

I’ve been BEGGING Jeremiah for 5 years to get a puppy. We always had our reasons not to, one of them being the fact that I love traveling SO much and paying for someone to watching/keep our dog would just be an added expense to the trip.

Well, the time has come, and not in the way that I had expected it to. Which of course, is kinda the way everything happens in our lives… always unpredictable, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Come tomorrow morning, we will be fostering a mini Australian Shepard in our home.

Planning Our Patio Space

As the summer winds down, we finally have the time to focus on our back patio that we’ve been trying to finish for a few summers. We were fortunate enough to have pavers given to us for free by a co-worker, (I’ll explain the rest of that story below), and ever since then, we’ve been trying to find inexpensive ways to make the backyard what we had dreamed of. Today I’m sharing some of the ideas and inspiration that I’m using to plan out backyard retreat.
