I dream of my future home. I can be such a whore for architecture, interior design, (cough, anything Martha Stewart does), even paint colors...I love it all.
I guess that one of the positives of me being close to being out on my own is that someday in the near future (unless of course, I'm on the street, broke as a joke), I'll be buying all my own furniture...picking my own colors for the walls of my apartment or house...hanging whatever pictures I want. This makes me happy beyond anything. (Well, maybe not happier than a plate of profiteroles and trashy reality tv in my bitchin' apartment...or happier than curling up in front of a fireplace with a good book...or happier than when J plans a surprise and I have absolutely no idea what to expect....but really, you get the point, thinking of the future of how my home will look is very high up on my list).
I've been browsing a lot of people's Tumblr accounts lately - mostly in severe procrastination because I have a horrible case of senioritis that just won't be quenched. I have been going CRAZY saving things to my inspiration folder from all these wonderful people's accounts.
So many of the things I've been saving have related to interior design or decorating, and seriously, I can only hope that one day I will be as talented, or have an eye like some people do. I'm blown away by the color choices, inventive painting or furniture, and the love that goes into these rooms (I do not know when I got so freakin' cheesy!).
I always thought I had a really classic and almost boring style when it came to decorating - my bedroom at home is just a very light yellow (I think it's called Sunshine yellow), and the wall behind my headboard is sage green. Nothing too crazy there! My parents style of decorating is classic as well, so that's all I've grown up with - no crazy art, no crazy colors - very plain and simple (but pretty and tasteful). When I was looking through all the pictures I had selected, I saw that most of them had really bright pops of color, or interesting designs that definitely weren't things I've always considered loving, which makes me even MORE excited to decorate and figure it all out =)
I LOVE the chandelier in the bedroom. Hot, hot, hot. (And I realize there are no pops of color in this, but I do think that it just works, even if it is plain).
I'm a big fan of having a chalkboard in the kitchen...like a huge one, maybe on the pantry door. In high school, one of my friends had one on her closet door and I was BEYOND jealous. I think it's such a fun idea!
Or this one:
This is an example of something that I don't think I'd want in my own house, but for some reason, I'm totally drawn to it:
If I ever have a little boy, hello, could this be more perfect?! (Not that I'm planning this right now)
Cutest. Laundry Room. Ever.
Love this little nook:
How are your homes decorated? Are they more fun and modern, or like mine, more classic?
I'm sorry for my absence...things got so hectic! I miss you all, and love you. xox, look forward to catching up!
