TGIF, loves!! We have been making some major progress with the townhouse and I’m excited to share a few updates with you guys. If you follow my Instastories, then you probably know the highlight of the week was getting our shades installed. FINALLY!! Let’s take a peek at a few new happenings at our place, shall we?!
Our doormat is out and has already been welcoming guests! This was a wedding gift from one of Ryan’s groomsmen- gotta love the personalization!
One of my favorite things about our house is… our doorbell! I know, I’m such a nerd but I think anyone that owns a home should get a Ring. I will be doing a full review on it very soon but it’s so neat to see everyone that comes to our front door- definitely makes me feel a little more safe and aware.
One thing that I was so looking forward to in our new place was the all white kitchen. It just looks so crisp and clean! I still plan on sprucing it up a little bit (with a fruit bowl, greenery, new bar stools) but this is what we’ve got so far. And I just picked up the cutest hand soap & lotion set from Anthro. Not only are they super cute and add that touch of gold, but smell absolutely delicious. A bit of a splurge for soap but I think it’s worth it!
Our shade installers were here for 6 hours on Wednesday (so many windows) and I sat here and supervised. They look great except for the fact that one of our big living room shades was just a bit bent which caused a wrinkle in the fabric. So we’ll keep it up for now but they’re going to have to replace it. It’s definitely frustrating but it happens. I’m just glad that we have privacy now and the blackout shades in our master make sleeping soooo much better. No more sun beaming in at 7am!
And on a side note, we were forced to put our TV in the corner due to our windows. I actually really like it in the corner but we are debating on what to put below it. A corner table? Some faux fur stools? I just feel like it needs something there. To all my home decor gurus out there, ideas are welcome! (AKA send help now because this home decorating stuff is hard!!!).
That’s all I’ve got for today but we have more furniture coming over the next few weeks and I’ll be sharing all of that on Instastories so make sure to follow along (@kristinahendley)!! I work today but then have a three-day weekend so that’s always something to look forward to and I’m hoping that Ryan & I can do a little bike shopping. Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!
Love how everything is coming together! And YAY for shades finally!! Have a great weekend!
Your town home is looking so good! Great photos!
How gorgeous is your home!! I love it! And that doorbell is so cool! I’ve always wanted one with a camera!

Laura @ Walking in Memphis in High Heels says
Oh my goodness, I’m in love with the kitchen! And I have been wanting to try Ring for a while now!
Love your kitchen!! Maybe you could do a nice basket with all your throws for the living room rolled up inside of it for under the tv?
It looks so amazing, that kitchen is gorgeous!
Nicole Leffew says
This looks amazing!! I want to hear more about ring! Love your kitchen and shades!!
Oh wow your kitchen is phenom!!! love how it’s all coming together!
I’m SO jealous of your white kitchen! That’s definitely on the list for my next house. I’ve heard so many great things about the Ring doorbell!
That kitchen is a DREAM! Love that you’re slowly adding your touches to everything… always a process! As for the area below the TV, I would suggest checking out Kirklands. They always have really great console style pieces and could look good in that corner (and they’re relatively inexpensive!) I’m not normally one for catty (or is it kitty?!) cornering things, but I think it would look good there with vases, etc added to give it some volume! 🙂
Have a great weekend!

Love the kitchen! As for the space under the TV, are you going to be hanging curtains? If so, I’d look for some kind of funky tall narrow table for the corner painted gold or, maybe something more bold (dependent on curtain colors), like, some kind of pink or orange. You could put some kind of plant on the table that could help fill the space too. Then, if you wanted, for extra seating, put mis-matched (like same pattern, but different heights) faux fur stools on either side of the table. Now, if no curtains, the only thing I would do differently, is instead of a table, do corner shelving. Either square ones or triangle that are the floating kind and then decorate using the kind of random stuff you can find at HomeGoods and TJ Maxx. Oh, and I’d drape a blanket over one of the stools.
Love the house! Congrats! My favorite part is that door dat!
Your home is beautiful! I can tell how much thought you put into it. I especially love your white kitchen!
Nice! Love the kitchen
Tristan Dennington says
I am officially obsessed with your kitchen! That soap set is the cutest!

Kate @ Green Fashionista says
Everything looks amazing! Loving your kitchen, and how cute is that door mat?! <3
AHHHH!!! I’m obsessed with the shades!!!!! They look SO good!! Please come help me do that in our house!!! Your kitchen is GORGEOUS! It looks straight out of a magazine!!!
For under the TV, you could do a reclaimed wood shelf (or white shelf) as a spot for flowers, accessories, etc. like this:
And then put the faux fur stools or poufs under that!
