I mean, I pretty much felt like I was back in Minneapolis. And then the pansies peeked through the snow drift and I be like, NOPE still in Texas. Phew! Close call.
Somehow we pulled off a move despite the Siberian apocalypse going down outside. So here's how things are shaping up in comparison with this post I wrote about my interior design "inspiration." I have to say, I'm amazing myself with how close I'm getting to my inspiration pics!
The "Office" (in quotations because it's just a corner of the playroom. Hubs gets the real office.)
This was my inspiration picture for a desk I loved. Obvi I wouldn't have the mirror or have it decorated in pearls. Actually, I wouldn't put that past me...

I absolutely love mirrored desks/side tables/accent furniture. This was my inspiration pic for our bedside tables, which is more a silver paint than an actual mirror.

I loved the mismatched look I found in this pic for a playroom, since everything is chaotic and crazy in that space anyway. Why not make the chaos look intentional?

We're chipping away at it this whole home decorating thing, piece by piece. I have seriously big plans for the dining room - it's going to be themed (whhhhaaaaat!!) - and I can't wait to share more pics as things get finished. You know, real pics of the room instead of just strange blurry photos of a piece of furniture :)
Have you ever had the pleasure of decorating a new home or apartment? What did you do, and do you have any advice for me? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
