We have lived in our home or about four months now, and our house is nowhere near being decorated the way I want it. I know everything takes time, so I have decided to take on one room at a time. I thought the living room would be a good place to start because that is we spend most of our time. When I was younger I always thought I would want a bright, modern looking home. Now that I’m a homeowner I’m the total opposite. I want my house to feel warm, cozy and homey. I feel like rustic, “farmhouse” looking decor gives that vibe, so that’s what I’m going for in our living room!
First comes paint color. Right now the walls are white which is pretty, but it’s just kind of “blah.” I personally think paint makes the biggest difference in a room. I went back and forth between “Krypton,” and “Silvermist” for a while and I finally settled on “Krypton.” So far we’re loving it!
It’s always been my dream to have a home office/beauty room area. I would love to have a room that I can do whatever I want with without worrying about it being too “girly” for Mike. It’s my dream to have one room in the house that’s totally mine. We have two spare bedrooms in our home that are filled with boxes that we haven’t unpacked yet, so my plan is to take one of those and turn it into my own little space.
I always sit on the counter and put my feet in the sink while I get ready (weird, I know) and Mike can’t stand it! He actually said, “I can’t wait until you have somewhere you can sit and do your makeup other than the bathroom sink”. I’m not going to lie, I am a little messy in the bathroom, I can’t help it I don’t always have time to clean up after myself! I think Mike will be excited when I get this room finished, too.
The first things I plan on buying are two desks, and a 21.5″ Apple iMac. When it comes to desks, I really like the X-base and high gloss look. I found THIS office desk that would be perfect for my workspace, and I’m on the hunt for a smaller, but similar looking desk for my vanity area. I know I want a plain acrylic chair for the vanity desk and a nice side chair for my work desk. I’m really struggling with what chair I want for my desk. If yall have any ideas let me know!
I am trying really hard to grow my hair out, and it’s in that super weird mid-length stage. It makes me feel like I don’t really have a “style”, especially when it is straight, which is why I typically curl it! My hair is also super limp and thin, so I feel like curling it gives it more volume, and of course I love that. Curling it is fast, simple, and easy. That’s exactly how I like to do things!
