Le chateau des fleurs new Home

It finally arrived, we are home owners. I really think it would take me years to find my perfect home but it was very fast. This house was the 2nd house I saw and I totally fell in love. It was just perfect. The materials, colors, floor plan. Super charming with a French touch. 
This house has a very good feeling, it felt right which is very important to me. It's very modest but High ceilings and the light walls makes the house look and feel bigger. If I would have had build a house it could have looked that way. It was meant for me. 

 The front room with dark hand scrapped hardwood floors. All the walls are a soft grey color although in some pictures you can't tell. The carpets are a soft grey too. All the trims are white. 

The kitchen with lots of cabinets, Aqua blue pantry door, stainless steel appliances. White subway tiles for back splash. High breakfast bar.

Frigidaire appliances and Aqua blue door.

Gas stove

Laundry room

Dining room

Living room. This fire place is very French inspired. I love the high ceilings and all the windows on the side. This house is extremely bright. There is a very yummy light and lots of windows.

I love those stairs. Perfect for hanging pictures. It's just beautiful.

And last but not least. My craft room! Yes! I get a craft room. Happy dance!!
Hope you enjoyed the tour. I seriously have no furniture for this house so it will be a lot of thrifting and finding treasures. What do you think? What should I do?

If you have been following my weight loss journey. The past 4 months have been super rough. I only lost 4 pounds. It has been so frustrating. This month I started Shakeology and last week I did a 3 day cleanse and I lost 3 pounds. I was super lazy and didn't even exercise. 3 pounds is big for me!!!

Last Halloween day. Throwback Thursday.

Last Halloween was super fun. Mimi was some archer or little dead riding hood. The kids all dressed up super cool and could have been out of a video game. Soleil was an Owl but she stole a sword the whole time. Some fun times. You can check all the pictures: Halloween day and costumes. I took some pretty cool pictures of the kids including one when Soleil is trying to whack the dog with the sword. They do grow up too fast. Where did this year go?

sunshine and bath time

Those 2  want to take a bath everyday at 6:15 PM when the sun shines through the bathroom window and they can see smoke coming out around their bodies. They think it's the coolest thing. Kind of hard to take in pictures. Those 2 are so cute!

Welcome to my fantasy house: Ikea

How do you like my closet?
 I always said that I could live at Ikea. I have been going to Ikea with the kids, I love the 1+ mile walk. LOL It tires them out and I love the rooms and inspirations. We are getting a new home and we have no furniture. Ikea is very affordable and I have some pieces picked out already. Let's take a tour!

 They have beautiful kitchens.
This table setting is my favorite. I love those chairs and they are $49 each.

 I love the canopy in this room.
Great master bedrooms too. 
 They have amazing organization ideas.
Great closets. Those shoe organizers are the best!!!
 I got great inspiration from this craft room space/family room. It would be perfect for my new basement!
 The couches are so comfy too.
French inspired chairs and table. My favorites!
I noticed a lot of darker walls. This room is super! Love Origami birds hanging from the ceiling.
I love their fun light fixtures.

I really love this paper holder and paper roll from the kids. My kiddos love drawing and this is super smart and inexpensive. I was invited to a blogger event at Ikea and given a gift card. I bought these and a Jug, very French by the way. I always have fresh flowers in my house and those are perfect!

Do you like Ikea? Any favorites?
