Whew! I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks since we decided to move. We’ve now been in the home for 3 weeks and there is still. So. Much. To. Do!!! But we are making great progress each week.
The interior painting is finally done, and Jason installed shelves for me in the laundry room.
I’m enjoying adding touches of color to our home!
In our previous home we had really nice wood cabinets in the laundry room, but discovered that we never used them. Things got shoved in there, never to see the light of day. So this time around, I think shelves will be much more functional and will provide tons of space for all of my cleaning essentials. I’m excited to have a utility sink and there’s plenty of room for a folding table too, once the appliances are moved in.
Dining Room before and after: darker versus lighter teal.
The other big change we accomplished was swapping out the dining room paint for a lighter, more muted teal. At first we had painted it a very dark turquoise, which I loved on the sample card, but realized quickly that it was way too intense and didn’t quite match the rest of the house. Once we changed it to a softer tone I was much happier. Yes, it cost a little extra for paint and labor, but in the end, It was totally worth it!
The kitchen area was a huge selling point for us and is truly the heart of this home!
Our kitchen area is in the focal point of the home and really sets the color palette for the downstairs area. The backsplash is a really pretty teal/green/blue combo which looks fantastic against the dark gray/brown cabinets and silver appliances. I’m waiting to purchase barstools until the rest of the living room furniture has been acquired to ensure it all harmonizes together. So be on the lookout for more updates as they happen!
I want to incorporate more quilts into my decorating, too! I’ve draped my LatticeWork quilt on the couch which adds a fun pop of color, while being super cozy for cuddling!!
Now I’m just waiting for the rest of the living room furniture to arrive.

Looking good, Christa! I learned my lesson the hard way about colors from the sample chips. Now my recipe is cut it in half, or go two or three steps down the color card, if it’s one of those that has several. Fun to see all the bits and pieces come together!
wow!! What a kitchen!! So happy for you!
You are really going to love your new space. Love, love, love you kitchen. We need to paint our bathroom, and the color you used in your laundry looks like what I have been picturing in my head. Can you tell me the brand and color?
It’s the Behr brand from Home Depot. The laundry room is called Jojoba, the dining room is called Opal Silk. Christa Watson Instagram @christaquilts website/blog: ChristaQuilts.com Click here to join my facebook group: Quilt with Christa
I love color in a home. We have an orange kitchen with the same type of appliances and it reminds me of Tuscany. So tired of just plain white walls and I have painted nothing since I moved in! Looking great!
Looks like it’s all coming together and ya’ll are getting settled in to your lovely home!
