One of the benefits of purchasing new construction is that everything is a blank slate; the sky is the limit in terms of putting your own touch on things. That being said, one of the downsides to purchasing new construction is that everything is a blank slate! It’s hard to know where to begin in making things feel like home.
The main focus was the guest room, but we’ve also accomplished a few smaller projects this month! We hung art throughout the house, mostly pieces we already owned and then a few of my photos. We’re working on a sports gallery wall in the upstairs loft area which will look so cool when we’re finished!
We’ve gone with a rustic look for a lot of our pieces so far and I want to keep with that theme. I like adding vintage details to spaces that didn’t have them already. I found these beauties at an antique fair over the weekend and can’t wait to hang them in our entryway.
They’re a seemingly small touch that I think will add a lot of character to a pretty blank slate. I’ve also been collecting vintage door knobs for a few projects throughout the house and can’t wait to share them with you!
While new construction often gets dinged for lacking character, I think our plans will give the space a lot of character that is uniquely us.
How do you add character to your home?
