It’s a running joke that if left up to my own devices, our house would be full of nothing but lamps and chairs.
I seriously cannot resist them… colorful lamp shades, cool bases, mis-matched comfy chairs around the dining room table. Sold.
And as we approach the year mark since moving in (April is just around the corner right?!), it’s fun to see how far we’ve come, and how far behind we are in decorating and getting things together. We have undertaken a few small projects (cleaning up the yard) and some big ones (ripping up the upstairs carpet – hardwoods underneath!), but the interior designer in me has taken a bit of a back seat.
After years of jumping around from apartment to apartment all over the country, and QUICKLY unpacking and setting up shop.. I’ve found it hard to commit to hanging anything on the freshly painted walls (thanks, Dad!!) or picking out furniture for our permanent home. I want to take my time… make it personal, and truly a reflection of us.
It will eventually come together, or forever be a work in progress.
Either way, if you stop by… you’ll have a place to sit, and light to read by.
