Home sweet home

November 19, 2008

Katie and I just finished moving all of our belongings into our new place.  The bedroom is so sparse and lame with just a mattress.  But it’s a nice blank canvas for us to work with.  The living room, though a work in progress, feels so nice and put together.  I think I would’ve gone absolutely insane if I had to come from work to a less than cozy situation.

It’s evening in these pictures so it’s impossible to understand the amount of sunlight that this room gets.  It’s amazing and it would be a shame for us not to get some plants.

This is Katie’s collection of pictures.  I love them.  I hung them last night while she was in class so she’d feel like it was home.  I stuck up there an embroidery I’ve been avoiding finishing for some reason.

It’s hard to see the adorable little desk that Blaire’s mom gave us.  It’s a lovely shade of green.  And the map of Peru fits so nicely above it and ties it together as a work space.  Makes me want to do some homework, but I don’t have any.

We combined our collections.  Mine is animal skulls and hers is cameras.  I think they go quite well together.  Above is the Audubon print that I gave Katie for our 1 year anniversary.  It’s of blue jays eating eggs.

The fireplace had a tacky faux marble sponge technique on the brick.  I could not take it anymore and I painted it black without asking.  I’m not sorry either.

This is the bench that Blaire’s mom gave us.  It’s the same color as the desk and fits in really nicely.  It’s standing in for the sofa that goes with the chairs that my parents gave me.  I threw my first weaving ever on it, cause well, it matched.  It will probably go under the framed pictures for dining when the sofa is here.  Our kitchen is back there as well as the bedroom doorway.  Both are not ready for visitors.  The front entrance is pretty cute too.  I hung up some fleur-de-lis hooks for our keys which is the most necessary organization at the moment.

  1. OMG so cute! When are you having a house-warming party?

    Well not until the bedroom looks like a bedroom. Cause in order to get to the bathroom, which most people need access to, you need to cross through the bedroom. And I just wouldn’t feel like a good hostess letting people pass through that mess. Maybe not a party, but you’re welcome whenever!
