Favorites & Highlights – A Year In Review

Happy new year! I told you I would be back 😉 After reflecting on all that 2016 brought, 2017 has some mighty big shoes to fill. This past year was the first full year for KELLEYNAN.com; having this place to share in creativity, live out my passion, and talk to all of you has been the most humbling experience of my life and one of my greatest blessings. THANK YOU. In January, a little under 5,000 of you were visiting the blog. Today, there are around 100,000 of you visiting each month. I know that may not mean much to you following along, but having devoted so much to the site, (and loving every bit of it), growing and connecting with more and more of you means the world.

Before plunging into new projects and all the fun things the new year will bring, I wanted to take a look back at favorites and highlights from this past year. If you are new-ish, some of these may be new; if you have been around for a while, it will be more of a stroll down memory lane. From the bottom of my heart, I am grateful to each of you who make this possible.

Q: What paint colors are in your house?

A: All of our paint is by Sherwin Williams. One thing to keep in mind is to always test colors; photos can be off and depending on lighting, surroundings, etc., can look totally different. The following can be found throughout our home.

  • Breakfast Nook/Kitchen: Perfect Greige
  • Dining Room: Lauren’s Surprise
  • Office: On the Rocks
  • White Guest Bedroom: Alabaster
  • Rest of House: Versatile Gray
  • Trim throughout House: Creamy

Q: Surely you don’t have any pets or kids?!

A: While we don’t have any children, we DO have three dogs. And, we spoil them; nothing is off limits. We try to keep them groomed to keep hair to a minimum but we keep a lot of cleaner and bleach on hand. Life is too short not to decorate your home how you love.

Q: Do you offer design/decorating services?

A: At this time, no. My time is maxed out but if anything changes in the future, I will most certainly make an announcement 😉

Here’s to a fantastic 2017 – may this be your year. Starting today, you can make it whatever you want it to be.

    I rarely comment but thought I would take this opportunity to wish you all the Best in 2017.
    I love the simplicity and calmness of your spaces. I’m a fan of neutrals in my spaces whether it’s on trend or not.
    I’m saving your guest room post for when I redo mine. Anybody would feel right at home in that room. I never thought of a full length mirror. Such a thoughful touch.

    Kel, you are such an inspiration in all that you do and I feel beyond blessed for your friendship! Hanging out with you in Atlanta and getting to know you more around that tiny bar table in the hotel was a memorable moment of my year. Keep up all of your amazing talent girlfriend! Love you to the moon and back and sure hope I can hug your beautiful neck in 2017! Xoxo?

    I’m recently new to your blog, and I definitely look forward to your post. I am in love with your style, and I am obsessed with your dinning room table and chairs. Do you remember where you purchased these items?
