Buying a house is very expensive. Fixing this house up is also very expensive. Because of this, I will not be able to decorate everything immediately.
I know, big unhappy face. But it's actually a good thing. I think spaces should breath and grow along with the homeowners. When I work with clients, I like to give them spaces that they can continuously add to (and subtract from). Because your home is a reflection of you, and you are always growing and evolving. Cheesy, eh? But true.
There will not be room reveals every month.. in fact many of the rooms I have no idea what I'm going to do with. (Like our master bedroom!!). And I'm pretty sure our formal living room will be empty for a long while. But what I WILL be doing is a lot of painting and upcycling things we already have. I'll also be acquiring unique and beautiful (and inexpensive) things from antique stores and Craigslist. There will be a lot of reupholstering. And when we are able to, I'll buy a new sofa and bed.
I'm also very busy with work (yay!), so finding time to decorate for myself is another challenge. But it's a very good thing that I'm very thankful for.
I hope I am not disappointing anyone! I just wanted to put it out there. :)
Although I don't know exactly what I want to do with our new spaces, I am looking out for inspiration pictures of how I want our space to feel. Here a couple of those images...

ps- do you ever wonder about my husband? See, he's probably my biggest fan and I'm very lucky that he is always approving of everything I do.. and tells me it looks great. As long as I don't spend too much money! :)
