{Best of 2015} Before & After Room Makeovers

Hello, hello! Are you still digging out of the holiday aftermath like us? As much as I loved our Christmas decor this year, I’m itching to get it down! I’ll use this organization method to put it away and get my house back quickly! The urge to purge has already started, and I feel the need to minimize everything! What is it about a new year that does that to us?!

We’re coming down to the last few days of the year, and I like to take this time to reflect back on what we accomplished and experienced in the last 12 months. There’s no question 2015 was an eventful one for us, with moving to a new house at the top of that list.

Looking around, it seems we’ve barely unpacked, let alone, decorated. But after compiling today’s post, I realized just how much we have accomplished in the few short months we’ve lived here. Thanks to the {One Room Challenge}, we checked two rooms off the list, and after an eight-week renovation, the Kitchen was done, as well.

These are the room makeovers completed in 2015…just click the link under each pic for the full reveal post.

Moving to a new house meant selling our old one, so after 10 years, we scrambled and finished the remaining room makeovers on these spaces in 2015.

It’s so fun to see these pics from our old home, and a little overwhelming to realize how much is still left to do in the new one! I hope you’ll follow along as we tackle more new spaces in 2016!

You can see more of the new house in our Fall and Christmas Home Tours. Up next is a round-up of this year’s new Style Series. Are you taking down the decor yet, or waiting until after the New Year? Have a great Monday!

P.S…Giant, heartfelt ‘thank yous’ to those of you who’ve checked in on us during the recent storms that hit our area. We are just fine, but sadly so many near us weren’t as lucky. It’s just devastating to see so much heartache and destruction just 15 minutes away. Click here to donate or volunteer.

    Your home is beautiful! Where did you get the Mexican blanket in the ottoman? I love how it looks! I have a bench project I'm itching for my husband to build but the fabric seat will be my job! Btw, I'm @myblessedfarmhouse on Instagram….just to put an actual name with a handle. 🙂

    Your homes are both beautiful!! I am bad about watching the news and weather reports unless i know it's in our area…which we had tornadoes on Wednesday evening, so I didn't realize there were storms by you. Glad y'all are ok.

    Plan to take decor down this weekend. I am going to do a little decor purging. I'd like to hit stores to see if there is any decor left, but just haven't had time, back to work today. Maybe this evening I can hit a couple local shops!

    Have a great Monday!

    Hi Cassie!
    I'm usually lurking from my RSS reader, but I wanted to pop in to say that the biggest reason for following your blog is your interior design style. I love it and find plenty of inspiration for my own home. Looking forward to seeing what is in store for 2016! Happy New Year!

    You've accomplished a lot this year, and your home is beautiful! We like our Christmas decor so much, it's hard to take down. We usually take it down after New Year's Eve.

  10. I can't believe how much you've done in a year! I've just reached the one year mark on living in our house and while we have decorated pretty much the whole house, we still have plenty of updates to do!

  11. Everything from Xmas is cleaned up and put away. Annual New Year tradition is well under way and all rooms will be cleaned and laundry will be done before Jan 1. We always like to ring in the new year with a clean slate.

  13. So relieved to hear you guys were ok! Such a scary storm. Ok, I can't even wrap my head around all that you got done in one year!!! Your new home is just breath taking!

  14. It's hard to imagine doing so much in one year! Of course, I'm older and don't have that wonderful energy anymore. Both homes are beautiful, however, the new living room is stunning!! I cannot tell you how much I love it! The kitchen is a dream and your Master bedroom is awesome.

    I took all the decor down on the 26th. Just have the need to clear out after Christmas Day. 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing what you do this new year!
