Our last house was a mish-mash of Britton's things and my things before we got married, combined with some things that we bought together that we could afford at the time.
It was super cute and cottage-y (on hole #6 of the MCC golf course). I miss coming through that front door every day. Britton proposed to me in the dining room, we brought Pollard home to that house...all the things that make ya tear up in life.
Our new house I am really trying to get into the decorate mode with. But when you're 9 months pregnant and have a 2 year old, have just spend an UNGODLY amount of money on 2 new couches and appliances...well you get the drift.
But since this is my blog I can say that I want...
1) Pops of color but have only gotten to my neutral bases so far
2) An even mix of traditional and contemporary accent pieces
3) About $20,000 to buy everything I want :)
Instead of buying and collecting things for the house before we moved in, I decided that in my current large state, and in Pollard's current fit-throwing food-flinging state, it would be best for my blood pressure to just decorate as I go. Hopefully that will make me appreciate it? All these dang empty corners and empty rooms are taking my OCD and Type A to a whole new level...2 glasses of wine/night would really help the situation but for now I'll just dip 2 Chips Ahoy in some milk and forget about it.
I found a few decorating blogs that make me drool while I watch Pollard roll around trying to go to sleep from about 8:15-8:45 at night... Can I just say...HOW did I get by without a video monitor for the last 2 years?? Thanks Allison for the great suggestion on the Summer Monitor!
This is what I have been reading the past 2 nights...
I came across Urban Grace because I'm kind of obsessing over the Best Slipcover Company's "Rachel" chairs. My dear friend Ashley Gilbreath who owns a beautiful store here in Montgomery called "Parish" had one in her store. Most comfortable, best looking chair I've ever put my butt in.
These are Urban Grace's Rachel chairs....
Slipcovered, skirted, brightly colored....love love love.
Anyone else know of some fun decorating blogs that I can salivate over/get ideas?
For now I'm taking a shower because it's 8:38 and I think Mr. Thomas the Train Jammies may be finally dozing off...
