LIVING ROOM UPDATE

Recently Jamie and I had decided that it was time to get a new fan for our living room.  The one we had was a bit dated and just wasn’t working very well.  As you know we live in Florida and we need all the breeze we can get during these hot summer days!  Also, I noticed that every time I cooked bacon or anything that had to be cooked in a skillet, the house would smoke up causing the smoke alarms to go off. To avoid this we would turn on the fan and open the back door, but the fan would barely move the smoke out of the living room and it would take forever for it to clear out.  That being said, it was definitely time for an update!

We looked at several different styles of fans out there and finally found one that would fit our home decor best.  The fan we chose is Casa Delta from Lamps Plus in an oil rubbed bronze which looks more like black wrought iron.  The blades are my favorite part, they span to 66″ and they are made of real wood.  They kind of look like a boat propeller.  Another cool feature that had us excited was the light feature with LED.  No more changing out light bulbs!  This was a huge plus because it’s so annoying when you have to unscrew the light dome, replace the burnt out light bulbs, and then put the dome back on while trying to keep your balance on a ladder and not getting dust everywhere (side note: I’m really bad about dusting the fan).

When our shipment arrived we planned a good day when we were both off to install it.  Well mostly Jamie installed it and I just handed him screws, haha! Putting it together wasn’t very challenging either.  The hardest part was getting all the wires into the base but other than that I’d say it was pretty easy and the directions were very detailed to guide us through the process.

It was amazing to see how such a small detail like a fan could transform a room.  I would never have thought about fan shopping when it comes to home decor and to be quite honest before I thought fans were pretty boring but now I’m singing a different tune.

It’s so much fun to do little projects like these around the house and I find it brings Jamie and I closer together and builds teamwork in the process.  Now I’ve got the fever and I’m wanting to work on all of our spaces! Hope you have a great weekend!

Do you have any small projects/updates you are currently working on in your home?  I’d love to hear all about them in the comments! 

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • ✨Happy NYE!!!✨This year was tough, not gonna lie! We got our new white lab Luna in the beginning and Hurricane Michael in the end and there were many other events in between. Let’s just say that I’m ready for the new year and I look forward to new memories! With all that being said I am also very thankful for this past year because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me realize what’s important and how to prioritize my life! I’m also very thankful for all of you for following me, commenting, liking, and supporting me. I hope y’all have a most memorable night filled with friends and family and stay safe!! See you next year! ❤️😉🎉 #forever21xme #freepeople #happynye #happynewyear2019 #cheers
