You guys, when did it become March?! Heck, when did it become March is nearly over and April is riding in fast? It seems like just a few weeks ago, I was planning out all my projects for the year, feeling like I had plenty of time to tackle all 100 things on my list (ha!) and then bam, March is almost gone! Anyone else feel the same way?
If you’re new here, hello! My name is Jenna and as you might have noticed at the top of this page, I believe in flying your freak flag in every aspect of life – from decorating to just being your everyday self. Did you just come from Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality? I really love her take on decorating – she has a classic, timeless style that is always so perfectly put together. She’s a sweetheart too! Also, a big thanks to Marty at A Stroll thru Life for hosting the tours – I love her gorgeous style. It’s the perfect amount of traditional mixed with touches of glam.
Today, I’m going to take you on a tour of our 70’s Landing Pad – a split-level house built in the 70’s that we’ve been remodeling for the past few years. Fair warning – my style may not be your cup of tea. There are black walls, punches of color and a sofa and coffee table that I feel would have held their own among other decor at Studio54.
Also, if you aren’t new here, you’ll see that some of the spaces in my home haven’t changed since the last home tour. I’m not one of those people who is constantly wanting to switch things up in their house and I don’t generally change things up for each season with the exception of a few pumpkins at fall and Christmas decorations. Once I have a room how I like it, there’s a good chance it will stay that way until I just so happen to run across inspiration somewhere that sends me wanting to change something up. I don’t generally seek to redecorate my home every few months, year, etc. I like to enjoy the rooms instead of constantly trying to change it up. So, if you found my living room atrocious last year, you’ll find it the same way this year. 😉
If you’re interested in shopping details for some of the items in my home, then I’ve included affiliate links below each photo. The links will take you to the exact item in my home or a similar item if the exact one is no longer available. 🙂
2018 Spring Home Tour
Nothing has really changed in the living room. I do have a new console table that is going to go against the wall to the left of the sofa, but I have yet to get it painted! This room is still one of my favorites in our home.
Same with the kitchen, y’all – no changes really! We just got this space finished at the beginning of last year and I’m still really pleased with how it all turned out.
This space is a new addition to my home tour. I got it finished up a month or so back and man, do I love working in this space. It’s light and bright, but also full of color and personality.
And yes, that is the nude Burt Reynolds Cosmo spread from the 70’s. 😉
The Circus’ Room
There have been a few new changes / additions to the Circus’ room!
#21, her Mama cow is proudly displayed in her room. I think we are now on baby calf #3 or #4 now though – that is #1 in the picture.
On the other side of the window, I just got finished with this drop-down desk for her.
She has become quite the little artist and loves making crafts, coloring, etc. I think she’s been at this spot at least once a day since I got it finished. I’ll have the tutorial for it on the blog soon.

Master Bedroom & Sitting Area
I have changed up things in the master bedroom just a bit.
I felt like this space needed a little more color and pattern so I added in some new pillows and a throw.
When we had to clean out Grunt Labor’s grandmother’s house, no one wanted the brass lamps that were in her living room. I knew they would be perfect for our master, so I brought them home and cleaned them up.
It’s nice having a little something from their home in ours.
I’m also playing around with these gold tables at the end of the bed here. I’ve had them for over a year – found them at a thrift store! I could never figure out what to do with them, but didn’t want to get rid of them. On a whim, I decided to try them at the end of the bed and so far, I like them. What do you think?
I was a little scared to try purple in here with this throw, but I am so glad I did! It meshes perfectly with everything else.
And while many thought I would tire of the carpet covered wall, I still love it. It brings great texture to the space. I have switched out the chair that was in the corner there for this bookshelf, another thrift store find.
Yes, there are a few empty photo frames there. I’m notorious for putting out frames and taking forever to actually put pictures in them.
Master Sitting Area
We are still enjoying having the sitting area of our master bedroom finished.
It definitely has more of a masculine vibe than the main bedroom does and that’s ok – Grunt deserves it.
I did add in this console table along one wall. It’s the first piece of furniture Grunt and I ever bought together. I think it’s now on it’s third or fourth life, as I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve painted it. I think it fits well here though. The art print and lamp were more thrifted finds!
I hope you enjoyed my tour today!
