This year we set a goal to make our house feel like ‘our home’. I feel really good about the progress we’ve made in the last five months––see our living room and dining room reveals. The next room we decided to tackle was our bedroom and with the help of The Key rewards program we made magic happen!
Welcome to our kitchen! Today is part two of our home tour and I am so excited to take you into the heart of our home, the kitchen.

Today is a big day at A Dash of Details headquarters (aka, my home office)! We are finally sharing the first room in a multi-part home series. One of my goals this year has been to introduce more home content on the blog and today we are kicking off the series with my new favorite room, our living room.

With love in the air and Valentine’s Day around the corner, February is off to a great start. Honestly, I love any excuse to fill the house with pink and red M&M’s and heart shaped everything, but if I am being honest, I have always been less interested in the big gifts the holiday brings. We typically choose experiences instead of gifts around here, but this year we decided to stay home and I knew I wanted to find the perfect gift for Patrick. So, instead of planning a trip this year, I framed three of our favorite lighthouses we photographed this summer on Nanutcket with Framebridge This summer was such a special memory and it brings us so much joy when we walk into our dining room.
This is my favorite picture from our wedding. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, it’s not a professional shot from the day or night, it’s a blurry black and white iPhone picture. But this photo is everything to me. It was 1:30am, pouring rain and I was on cloud 9.
Like I said in yesterday’s post (be sure to enter the giveaway!), some of my favorite Valentine’s Day memories have been super low key. One of my favorite activities to unwind since moving into our new house has been to take baths. The bathroom was redone before we moved in, which meant a brand new bath tub. Let me be honest for a second, I was always weirded/grossed out by taking a bath in any of my previous rental houses, so I haven’t enjoyed a soak since living with my parents. Anyone else?! Please say you feel the same so I know I am not crazy. ;)
When it comes to setting the table for Thanksgiving, my advice is to let the food speak for itself.
This year I am not hosting the big event, but we are having a few friends over for a simple and low key Friendsgiving. There is nothing I love more than hosting friends for this iconic meal (see last year’s set-up). This year my moto is KISS (keep it simple, stupid). We are covering the table in a gauzy tablecloth, pears, a few candles, and some rustic cutting boards. See my inspiration for our Friendsgiving table:
I had been on the hunt for the perfect bar cart for years now. I wanted an acrylic one to match our ghost chairs at our kitchen table. When I was ready to pull the trigger last year, the acrylic bar cart was sold out EVERYWHERE. I searched high and low for the affordable bar cart (I had a hard time spending $800+ on a decor item) but I can out empty handed. When Hayneedle.com reached out to pick out a piece from their collection, I immediately searched their extensive bar cart selection. To my surprise, I found the one I had been searching for for the last year.
We have been in our house for a little over 6 months and we finally started thinking about designing the home office. Other than two Ikea desks and my computer, our office is lacking any sort of inspiration or design. The space is pretty large with great natural light, so we are thinking about the best ways to fill the space. Here are a few offices that are giving me heart eyes.
