I’m not sure if this is early nesting or if I’m just finally feeling settled in to our new house enough to think about decorating and creating our HOME. It seems that lately my brain is consumed with thoughts about how I want our house to feel. What colors I want to use in our bedroom. What will be the best layout for our growing family? What the coziest furniture will be for the family room we’re creating in the basement. We’re only actively working on one room currently (the sunroom that will also function as my home office) but I’m definitely making major plans for at least five other rooms.
Instead of loading up one blog post with tons of pictures of what I am imagining for our home, I’m going to be patient and post separately for each room. It will be good for me to force my brain into concentrating on one thing at a time- if only for a few minutes.
I can’t wait for our house to feel like a home. B and I have actually lived together in five different places along the years. Some we loved, some we didn't but one thing is for sure- we never made any of them our HOME. I guess since we have always rented up until now our townhouse/apartment/house always seemed temporary. We never invested a lot of time or money into making everything look and feel the way we wanted. We have lots of mismatched furniture and crappy old decor. Nothing was really planned out or purchased specifically with a design in mind. I am so looking forward to that changing in this house.
Since I’m not sharing plans or pictures for any specific room today, I'm including some random pictures that I like. These are all from Pinterest. In an effort to keep things organized I have my Pinterest boards divided up really specifically- "house- bedrooms" "house- laundry room" "house- playroom", etc. That is how I have my holiday boards divided up too. I know that if I don’t keep things organized I won’t be able to find anything and all usefulness will fly out the window. So far it is working out wonderfully!
More to come, as we make our house our HOME!
