I feel like since Thursday when the movers came I've been so disoriented. Not in a bad way, but moving to the other side of the country into an apartment and being reunited with the husband after months has really disheveled me, again not in a bad way at all. Like I was used to a certain routine and now everything about that routine has changed and I'm adjusting to a new one. My old life consisted of working 9-5, being alone the rest of the time while working like a mad woman on three interior decorating projects that I needed to wrap up (for the most part) before I moved. Now I'm here and learning to take the dog out regularly (she's been soo good!), living with someone else again (oh how I missed him!) and being my own boss.
I owe a ton of you emails, and I am sorry. Today is my first official "work" day and I plan on getting back to as many people as I can. And in between, I'll be putting up fresh coats of paint!
So to go with my random thoughts.... some random pictures:
I threw out all my old pillows during the packing process (it was time!) so I went to Tuesday Morning to buy some new ones. While I was there I found...
The COOLEST Pantone mugs and a pear terrarium. The pear terrarium was only $8 and they also had apples, oranges, and all different sizes. The mugs were $3. I got four total Pantone mugs, and I just love them so much. They remind me of my college graphic design classes.
As I mentioned earlier, we have no furniture except for one IKEA chaise and a blow up air mattress. Here is the current state of our apartment:
I can't believe I'm sharing these pictures... but I know I'm going to look back and laugh at this. My husband and I eat together on that tiny little table, me on the chaise and him in the chair. And yes, there is a sheet on the chaise. My husband put it there when he first moved out here and we have yet to take it off. It makes me laugh just writing this. But it will just make for better "afters". ;)
We did manage to buy a bed for Charlotte so that's where she's been.. can you see her?
Okay now on to the fun part...
Black paint! I only did two samples and I'm going with the one on the right. It's Home Depot's BEHR color match of Benjamin Moore's Onyx. See how it's a bit richer and less purple than the one on the right?
There it is on a different wall.
We're lucky to get so much light in the apartment, or else I wouldn't be painting the room black.
Okay, off to emails & painting!
