The Decor Dish

Thursday, June 3, 2010

We're still on a roll... buying up pieces left and right in the hopes we can have our home "settled" before the end of the year--or that's our ultimate goal at least. Sure, there will be items to add at a later date, but I am a nester and both Jeff and I want our home furnished sooner rather than later, so we can start having friends and family over for parties/cookouts/sporting events/etc.
This past weekend, Jeff went and picked up our living room rug from the beloved PB...
here it is: the Emerson Rug!
And in a room so you can see how it looks!
We also ventured out in the hopes of finding an armoire for our living room to serve as a coat closet. When buying an older home, I realized we'd have to sacrifice somewhere and closet space {minus the master of course} is somewhere we had to give up some storage. But, we'll find the perfect piece soon enough and it'll take up some of that empty hall space too!

On the other hand, we did find the PERFECT bookshelf to complete bookcase for our bedroom from Merridian. Pardon the horrid pic I am attaching--via BlackBerry--but you get the idea.
This Sunday--weather permitting--I am hoping to paint the upstairs guest bathroom! I found this incredible colorful {and oh-so Anthropologie looking} shower curtain at Dillards months ago and snatched it up because I knew I had to have it... plus, it is fun, bright, and gives me the opportunity to branch out from our other bathrooms--1 is grey and 1 is a dark mocha. We'll be using the Martha Stewart Paint Color Feldspar and I think it's going to look amazing!!
{and yes, the color matches in REAL life--haha}
Not that I don't already have a full-time job {in marketing} or a part-time job {doing caligraphy} but I feel as though decorating a home is another job in itself... yes, a fun one, but a pricey and you're-never-going-to-be-done kinda job, too--and I know many of you can sympathize with this observance, too =)

  2. You have such an eye for design and I love it! Your rug looks so comfy and chic. I'd love to plant myself there. That shower curtain is adorable too, and that paint really brings out the blue perfectly. I can't wait to see photos. You are such a hard working gal. Move over Mary Tyler Moore!

  9. Oh my gosh...at first I thought that pic with the rug in the room was your house and I was about to ask you to come decorate my house!

    Is that black and blue pattern behind the bookshelf wallpaper or an art piece? Either way it looks amazing!

    Decorating is sooo much work, but it's so fun!!! :o)

  11. Ah all I want is to finish my house slowly but surely I finally finished the mantle which was tearing away at me every time I looked at it. I can't wait to see pictures! Honey even with new houses I don't have any closet space that's next on my check list for the next time we buy a house lots of closet space.
