We have had our fair share of hiccups as we move forward to closing, but the good news is that this week, we will once again be homeowners!
In all of my moving excitement, I have started thinking through what our new house will look like. I have narrowed down paint choices and sketched out where our furniture will fit and go. I have made a list of things here and there and I have used Photoshop to show hubby the look and feel I am going for.
As I pinned ideas and sketched my own, I decided that I wanted a timeless and classic but rustic feel for the living room. I wanted grey-ish walls and CT3 likes leather, so I would incorporate that and neutrals into the seating. I wanted a gallery wall, composed of mostly things that are meaningful to family and I wanted lots of pictures of my kids. I wanted bright and happy in the main areas and kitchen and while its the same lay out as our old house, I figured that new paint and some furniture and decor upgrades would make it feel completely different.
That said, here is the sketch that I put together and I think the look that CT3 and I are going for and how they compare with the old house.
My Grandmother is graciously giving us her dining rooms set and also the side table pictured. I am thinking of putting that there, but we will see if it fits!
I have done little sketches for a few of our other rooms as well and I am anxious to see how close I get in the real life designs and how it all turns out! I am by no means a decorator, so feel free to give tips and ideas! I have just a few more days before it all comes off the paper and into real life and couldn't be more excited!
