Are you from Tennessee, because you’re the only ten I see. 😆 Spoiler alert: He actually is. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my butter (not a misspelling) half, my travel buddy (although Pappu and Justina are quickly catching up to you) and the most tolerable Lakers fan I know (30% of the time. GO CELTICS). You’re the only guy I know that not only sets and meets goals, but vastly exceeds every single one of them. Dang overachiever. Thanks for being a good instagram husband and gym-video guy, a great dog dad to @jarvisthegemini, and my best friend. I love you a waffle lot, @sammen89

PS: Don’t hate me for that last picture, it was too cute 🥺

I hope you have people in your life that would follow you into a cave. 🖤

Designing Our Home – The Dining Room That Isn’t

Anyone that knows Sam and I, knows that we’re almost opposite in every way. I’m more bubbly and adventurous. He tends to be more reserved and calm. We both value family, hospitality, and details.

When we lived in our apartment for 2 years, we found our common style. Modern, sophisticated, highly-curated. When we found our dream house, we were excited about the new challenge.

We aren’t dining room people. So we decided to do something different, turn our dining room into a social room. The walls were a silvered sage color with cream trim and wainscoting. In short, not anything we would ever pick on our own in a million years.

 

It took some convincing (mostly me trying to convince Sam) but we ended up going with bold navy (Sherwin Williams Naval) and a soft white trim. I personally think the results are stunning.

 

Its a definite improvement on the prior shades, and its a refreshing contrast from the various shades of grey that we have everywhere else.  Paired with the soft cream sofas and faux coyote fur throw we brought over from the apartment, it’s perfectly us. Still on the hunt for the perfect wall art, and we are planning on slowly upgrading the lighting fixture, lamps, and the dark wood tables to suit our visions, but it still ties nicely with the room updates.

 

What do you guys think? Is there a bold color you’d try (or have tried) in a room?

    It looks like you’re slowly building together your house. Would you be willing to blog to process of deciding what to buy when? Your house is coming together so beautifully.

      Sure! It is a really really slow and deliberate process. We have a couch for our actual living room coming so I’ll blog about that next 🙂
