For the first time in my married life, Carl is employed full time and we have a house of our own. We moved into this great house that is already painted in colors that I love. There are some exceptions, of course. I'm interested in re-doing our bedroom and bathroom but the rest of the house is pretty much how I want it. The problem? We have never purchased our own furniture (exceptions to that as well...we bought a computer desk). All our furniture is from the side of the road or hand me downs from family and friends. I'm ready to grow up and get some furniture of my own.
In my quest for my own furniture, I'm trying to come up with my personal style. This has never been really important to me before but now I can't stop thinking about being a homeMAKER. I want to make a home. I'm going to come up with a plan for the next year to make my home how I want it. Little by little I'm going to work on my spaces. The kitchen floor was kind of the catalyst for that. Good motivation.
Here are some of the things that are inspiring me.
I'd really like to get a new couch. I love this shape. The colors in this bathroom make me really happy. Giddy happy. Like I must go out and fill my linen colors with all of these towels happy.
I have a ledge going along the whole wall in our family room. I'd love to get some pretty things to put on there (besides my pepsi cans and knitting projects) and I like how this picture shows some nice options.
