So I am currently in the process of trying to get a house. The waiting is not fun... but I'll tell you what is fun. Finding furniture... aside from my college rooms I have decorated one apartment & the house we rent now. The truth is... I hate the interior decor. Absolutely hate it. When finding things to put in the house I focused more on price than what I liked... which ultimately led to a house filled with things I liked for about 2.5 milliseconds, which is totally pointless because while I may have saved money in the short run I wasted money in the long run because I have only used the things for a few months before giving the stuff to Good Will. So while decorating our first home I am not going to do this anymore. I know if I do this I will save money in the long run. Here are my first two big splurges. And even though I say big it's not really that big, but big for me. Baby steps first right? The chair was only $130 and the mirror was from Joss & Main and was on sale for $138 and after refreshing the page about 200 times in an hour I finally was able to get the last mirror available!!!!
I am pretty excited to get both of these in the mail! I have been eyeing ghost chairs for forever and knew I wanted one in my home office. I also loved this mirror. I love the shape and the girliness of it. It will also be in my home office. I have a vision and I hope it comes out as pretty as it is in my head. I know I want one striped accent wall in a dark almost black navy color, with the other walls being totally navy. White crown molding. A pretty chandelier. Shelves with the dark color in the back. A bold graphic print rug. Maybe trellis or chevron or scallops? Maybe a bright yellow? I want lots of framed wedding inspiration to create a gallery wall. And I am going to revamp our current dining room table and paint it black so that I have a large desk area. Cannot wait!
Anyway, come back often to see updates on our first home!
