Hello darling! I'm Tara. Designer of pretty things, taco lover & champagne addict. Pull up a chair, let me pour you a glass of bubbly & get to know a little more about me & my fabulous home, Avenue Twenty-One!
house + home
May 8, 2018
Now that we are getting settled into our new Charleston home, it’s time to start decorating! It’s going to be a pretty slow process since we are already busy with tons of work projects but I can’t wait to fill this bright & sunny little home with lots of pretty things & new projects!
The living room is a bit smaller than we anticipated & our current couches don’t fit! That’s just about the only ‘complaint’ we have about this cheery home though. There is a gas fireplace & above it is an alcove for our television. I LOVE having a space that I can tuck away the tv. The lighting in the living room is AMAZING! We have french doors going out to our back yard & there are 2 skylights to let in lots of natural light (which I’m a total sucker for!)
I’m not going to lie… I kind of freaked when I saw the built ins! I mean soooo many options! It’s going to be a blast styling these shelves. In the meantime I grabbed a stack of my favorite books and styled one shelf… you know – just to feel like I accomplished something!
So it’s no secret to anyone that knows me that I absolutely do not cook. Unless it’s taco’s… and even then I just brown the hamburger – my husband does the rest. Our kitchen is a nice sized galley kitchen and is perfect for our day to day living!
Our home has 3 bedrooms. Our master bedrooms has it’s own bathroom and then we have a guest bedroom & my home office. All of the rooms have great light!
The second bathroom has a double entrance. So our guests can enter it from their room or it can be entered from the hallway. It’s a great way for our house guests to have a little privacy when they visit!
My home office is in the back of the house. I love it because it is large, full of light & I have a great view of our back yard & trees.
Speaking of our back yard… it’s an absolute oasis. We have a fence for a bit of privacy but once you open up the gate you step into a whole new world! We have a large pond with a fountain surrounded by trees. It’s heaven and honestly can’t believe it’s our home!
We’ve got a small alligator, turtles, cranes & the cutest little family of ducks.
I’ll be spending the next few months planning, designing, shopping & decorating our new home! You can follow along by checking out our House & Home blog category.
