Design Plans & Goals for The Style Nest Home

Did we seriously blink and 2018 was gone? 2018 was such a great year for us but it all feels like a blur. I think I was in shock that I was pregnant for the first part of the year, then I was pregnant and now I'm still in the sleep deprived infant stage living in that sleep deprived mom brain fog. I still can't believe we had a baby in 2018 but what an amazing gift he has been. He has brought so much joy into our home and I couldn't imagine life without him. How we're going to top off 2019, I'm no so sure but we have design plans and goals over here at The Style Nest for this year.



We've lived in our home for over 5 years and we've been chipping away at projects. Last year we worked on the outside which has been an ongoing process, a very expensive process but it needed to be done. I can't wait for nice weather and to entertain out there and enjoy it! We also finished the babies room, which is now my favorite room in the house. 




Since we now have a baby our priorities have shifted a bit as to what needs to be finished in our home. The living room which was the only room almost complete, now needs to be completely redone because nothing is baby friendly. I thought it would be a good idea to plan ahead for what's to come in 2019 and live with these design boards for a couple months before fully pulling the trigger on pieces.

The other project in DESPERATE need of being renovated is our one and only full bathroom. This has been delayed because of that. This will be our big project this year and I honestly cannot wait to take a sledge hammer to that room. I have 2 design concepts I'm deciding between. I think I made up my mind but I'll share what I'm thinking and let me know if you have a favorite.

2019 Goals:

+ To organize and maintain that organized home. For me having a clean home is a form of self care and I am just a much better person when my house is in order. I want to share how I organize my space as well. 

+ To complete rooms that are 90% done and finally photograph these to share with you on the blog

+ To share more style tips on the blog of what is going on behind the scenes with our design work

+ To simplify things. Now that we have a baby, my time has been non existent. I want everything in it's place and to not spend what little free time I do have cleaning. I read Marie Kondo's book last year and got halfway through until I got to the paper part and panicked. Binge watching Kon Marie's show on Netflix may have pushed me to finally complete this.

+ To share more fashion posts on the blog. This was the most requested item on my questionnaire last year and with being pregnant I doubt anyone was looking for me to share any fashion tips at the time. I'm very awkward in front of a camera but I want to overcome this and instead of sharing fashion mood boards, I want to share more of what I like to wear. 

+ We have a couple fun trips planned this year so I will also start sharing more of our travel adventures on the blog as well. I love to do a lot of research before heading to our destination and I love reading tips from other travelers. We've found a couple great recommendations over the years and I'd like to share these from our travels. I also want to put together a What to do in Boston guide as I get asked this frequently. Although I haven't lived here my whole life, we've been here for 11 years and frequent the city often so I have some great places to share. 

Cheers to 2019 going a little bit slower then 2018!
