Our New Home: House Tour Part Two

Yesterday, our new home here in Connecticut was featured over on Domaine.

I was so excited that I went ahead and posted a rare afternoon “double” post…yup, I can’t play it cool to save my life.

Today’s post is a bit more of our house, starting and ending with our new kitchen…since it was that fated “one room challenge” that had me scrambling to get Nicole Cohen up here so quickly to photograph this room after we moved in.

The day that Nicole came up we must’ve taken about a zillion images, so of course there will be a lot more photos of my house in the weeks to come, including a few before and afters.

I’m thrilled with the way that these came out, it’s hard to believe we’ve only been living here for exactly two months!
