Happy New Year, friends! I am so grateful to you all for being a part of my home in 2016. I pulled together some of my favorite posts from The Inspired Room this past year. It’s not easy to sum up twelve months when you write as much as I do, ha, but it’s always fun to look back and wrap up the year.
While clearly 2016 was a year of dreaming up possibilities and starting our house projects, 2017 will be about actually seeing those dreams, ideas and projects become reality (or at least enjoying the progress we’ve made!).

From demo day of our small galley kitchen to our kitchen design board and the plan for the mood of our kitchen and our plan for a window flush to the counter, we now have a nearly completed kitchen to share with you soon :)

Whether you were here with me for the whole year or if you’ve just joined in, I am so grateful that you are a part of my life. I can’t wait for all that’s in store for 2017 and especially can’t wait to share our kitchen remodel and the other projects we’ve been working on. It should be a very exciting year!
We’ll kick off the first week in January with Hygge. I’m excited to talk about simplifying, organizing and being more mindful of our well-being as we nestle in to a cozy winter house < learn more about hygge in that post. See you in January!
