It's been one whole year since we moved into our house in Nashville. So much has happened in that year, and now our house feels like a home.
We wanted to give you a "behind the scenes" look at our home and lives here in Music City, so that you can get to know Breathless Paper just a little better.
Around the House:
I am slowly but surely changing the lighting. I recently added these kind of industrial pendants above our kitchen island and I adore them!
The dining room table is one of my favorite pieces. It's the table I grew up with. My parents gave it to us and refinished it in a white, antique style and I LOVE having it! I installed a new light above it that I ordered from my mom's shop in Atlanta, Urban Cottage.
Our foyer is a great, open space. All it needed was a simple metal drum shade light.
We screened our back porch in, and it is our FAVORITE spot to be.
I painted our half bath a great deep navy. I LOVE it, and it's a great contrast to the bright white woodwork throughout.
Also in the half bath, I have a little Dash & Albert rug, a ceramic white accent table and a great wall shelf. My dad made the mirror for me from old barn wood and I changed the vanity light. It's actually one of my fav spots in the house :)
Walking up the stairs I have two large bulletin boards where we display the kids' art. I love watching them pin their stuff up there. Also on display is our Needle & Grain "Nashville" pennant that I bought right after we moved.
The playroom / band room is another family fave spot. Matt and the kiddos spend tons of time in there making music.
Fave Date Night & Restaurant Spots:
Fave Spots to See Music:
The Ryman... of course.
The Basement on 8th Avenue. It's a tiny hole in the wall with great beer.
3rd and Lindsley. It is a good size and you can sit at a table with friends and grab food too. The sound is awesome!
Mercy Lounge is also great. It's not too big and you really can see from wherever you are, which is always a plus.
