People have been asking me if I have started decorating the house. Well, I have, but in my head. I can describe the living room, the gallery wall, and the mud room. These are all new spaces for us so I am having fun envisioning the rooms. You should see how mad I get when I go to HomeGoods and they don't have what I want, don't they know it's in my head and I want it.
I have purchased some items from visions and I can see them working out nicely. Here are the chairs and rug I purchased for the living room.
The walls will be a grey color so I think these will look amazing next to it. I bought two chairs to flank each end of the carpet. I am thinking I will place our old buffet in the room and I want a coffee table. I know the table I want and I will find it, because it will be perfect.
I have been getting pictures printed and I will be taking our old photos and some canvas for the gallery wall. I'm on the hunt for some non picture items that will look cool. Again, the whole wall layout is in my head. Yeah, Charlie really loves the way I do things.....
As for the mudroom. I have two blank walls that I am dying to decorate. I'm on the hunt for a bench for one of the walls and above it, we each will have individual hooks with wood initials over the hooks. I found some cool letters down at my moms. I also found these two items at Tuesday morning. They will go on my big family command center wall.
I'm pretty sure this wall will hang kids artwork, our mail station and have other fun items on it.
People might be thinking, are you nuts, you haven't even moved in yet, but you know, I know what I want. This is how I design rooms. A lot of the other rooms will be furniture from the old house. The master will probably look identical because I took a lot of time in the old house to make it the way I wanted. Maybe change up the room color but for the most part all the same. The kids rooms will have some updates and I will post on those soon. The family room, well, I don't know yet. That room is stumping me. I know we will use a lot of our old stuff that isn't that old but I also know I want to add end tables and new mantle decor.
So for now, I will keep dreaming of the rooms and designing in my head because I think I might have reached my budget limit with Charlie. He has told me no more until we get there. I agree, but I am glad I was able to get some of these out of my head and into storage.
