Five on Friday

Hey Y’all! Hope everyone has had a wonderful week. I’m so glad its Friday, and even more glad to be linking up with Christina and the rest of the girls for Five on Friday. I figured today I’d change it up a bit. So here’s Five on Friday : Home Edition.

5 on Friday Logo - Final(2)

Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been scouring the internet searching for paint colors, light fixtures, and decor ideas for our home that we will start building this spring. When I picture this home, I picture tons of natural light, bright white, and touches of coastal rustic-ness.  Here’s a few of my favorite things I’ve found recently and plan on using in our home. Searching for this stuff makes me BEYOND excited to get the show on the road and finally be in a home to call our own.


1 Ballard Designs  Duron 3 Light Lantern

I think this light is absolutely gorgeous- I love a lantern, and love the character they bring to a room instead of a normal chandelier.




2. Pottery Barn Sienna Paisley Blue Duvet Cover

This is our current bedding, and I am still in love with it even four years after buying it. I love the colors, and cannot wait to decorate our master bedroom around it finally. Its held up so well and is still just as gorgeous as it was when purchased.



3. Double Bowl Farmhouse Sink

When we started dreaming of building our own house, we of course started dreaming of our “must haves.” My one splurge and one thing in the house that I hope for is a double bowl farmhouse sink. A big ol white sink, in my white kitchen. I have no idea why I love these sinks so much, but I do. Maybe its like the lantern, its something different, and adds character.




4. When I picture our master bathroom, this is kind of the inspiration I look for. Not necessarily the paint color, or the built in (even though they’re both great). What I really love about this bathroom picture is the shutters over the tub instead of the frosted glass windows that are normally installed. I want real light streaming in, not filtered light through a not so attractive frosted glass. I love the idea of using shutters for privacy while still allowing light. This is a must.




5.  Last but not least, I am LOVING this gallery wall going up the staircase. The downstairs of our floorplan is fairly open, and doesn’t have many walls. So I’ve decided the perfect place for a gallery wall of family photos is going up the stairs. This one is probably one of my favorites I’ve seen.

While I’m not ready for summer to end, I can’t help but get excited for the seasons to pass and bring us that much closer to starting this labor of love.

Happy Weekend!
