Friends I cannot believe this is our third and final stop on the Merry & Bright Blog Hop! I have loved being teamed up with some super talented and sweet ladies to share our Christmasy homes with you! If you missed the last two weeks, check out our Entry spaces HERE and our Living Rooms HERE. Third and final stop is our Dining Rooms… full disclosure, we’ve lived in this house right at a year, and decorating this space for Christmas was like the third time I’ve been in this room other than to fold laundry. It’s such a pretty space that I’m almost inspired to cook a meal so we can eat in here again. I said almost, don’t get crazy. Let’s go check it out!
Welcome back to the second week of our Christmasy-good Merry & Bright Blog Hop! I’m lucky to be on this fun blog hop with some super talented ladies that are buddies from Instagram land. Their gorgeous living rooms are linked at the end of this post so be sure to check them out when you leave my crib. Last week we showed you our Entry spaces (check it out here if you missed it!), and today we’re chillin’ in the living room, so come on with me!
Fa la la la la la la la long time no blog post! We have been busy enjoying the season, and by “enjoying” I of course mean surviving the sleep deprivation that comes along with a four month old in the throws of teething and sleep regression. Alas, we had a great Thanksgiving and are blessed to have been able to spend it here with our family. I am excited for our first Christmas here in this house, and for my youngest daughter’s first Christmas ever.
I’m also pretty pumped to have joined up with some of my oh-so-talented Instagram friends for a Merry & Bright Blog Hop that begins TODAY and will feature new posts for the next two weeks! The links to these fabulous lady’s blogs are at the end of this post and you simply must check them out for some of the most gorgeous Christmas décor and home decor inspiration that you could hope to find. We are starting with our Entry spaces, so come on in peeps!

Hi bloggy friends and happy Tuesday! Recently I’ve gotten lots of questions about E-Design and what exactly it is, so I thought I’d share an article I just wrote for a magazine publication for our area. If we’re friends on Facebook or Instagram, you know how obsessed I’ve become with the genius and convenience of E-Design. It takes so much of the guesswork out of designing your space, I just love it and I love working with my E-Design clients! The article and some E-Design examples are below, and the Jones Sweet Homes E-Design page is here!
This E-Design was done a few weeks ago for a fun family needing a few changes in their kitchen. Her style was described as “minimalist farmhouse”, and this design plan fit the bill because we’re starting on their renovation next month! Here are some of the renderings, as well as links to the products pictured!
Four moves in five years. That is our reality. Four moves in five years means you’re a pro at packing, you’re probably nuts, and that you’ve mastered repurposing your home décor. I don’t like the heavy lifting, but once all the big stuff is in place, my wheels start turning about what goes where when it comes to our décor, and how I can repurpose, reuse, and make items we’ve had for years seem new and fresh. I love the creativity of this process, and I love the challenge. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite repurposed décor items that I used in my office at our new house.VIEW POST
Hi my Peeps! If we’re friends on Instagram and Facebook you’ve already seen some sneaks of our laundry room makeover. (And if we’re not friends on Instagram and Facebook, why not?! Let’s fix that shall we?! I’ll wait.) K welcome back! When we first looked at this house, this space was dark and dysfunctional. It had a utility sink hiding behind a door, cabinets with plastic handles, and those swirly blue-ish lightbulbs that I just can’t cope with. We made a few changes and it feels like a brand new space. Bonus that these changes also make the want-to-claw-my-eyeballs-out task of laundry a bit more bearable. Here’s the “after” of our Farmhouse Laundry Room makeover. (And spoiler alert! I love the end result… but I still don’t love laundry.)
Hi peeps, happy Friday! If you’re new here, we’re serial-movers, updating the house that we just purchased at the beginning of the year. One of the biggest projects on the radar for this house was staining the existing orange-ish hardwood floors. The wood is installed in all of the main living areas, the kitchen, and the hallway. It was a major undertaking, and we knew the color that we chose would set the tone of the whole house. We asked your opinion in “The Perfect Grey Wood Stain” post from a few months ago, and did an annoying amount of research. Here are the results of our choice of grey wood floor stain, why we chose what we chose, as well as a bit about the
painful process, and some before and afters!
Hi friends! So glad it’s Friday. After a marathon prove-my-point cabinet painting week (tutorial coming soon!), I’m ready for some much needed chill time with the fam this weekend. Today I’m sharing a super fun project that I just worked on for a builder here in Jacksonville. Not only was this project so fun, but it also was a great reminder that being able to see your plans come to life in 3D before you even break ground or start your project is invaluable! Creating floor plans in 3D helps you get the feel of the flow of a space, and provides a checklist for choosing finishes like wall color, flooring, cabinetry, and countertops. Plus it’s just cool and basically a necessity for us visual people!
