my little home


Working in the world of design is a blessing and a curse. Being surrounded all day by beautiful things is inspiring but it makes it almost impossible to make a decision about your own home! Everything I see come into the office I think, " I could use that- I love that!" It paralyzes me! When we first got married and settled into our little home, I ran through endless scenarios in my head- bright, modern, mid-century, California cool, designer chic, sparse and architectural, AHHH!!!

I finally realized that although I love the bright chic, a la jenny of little green notebook, its just not me. I favor more muted look, with whites, grays, and creams mixed with a healthy dose of rustic textures mixed in there. And I know that my style will grow and evolve over time- so I'm not worried about it being perfect right now. I buy what I like- and then as I look at it, I may realize I hate or- or its perfect. I don't stress! That's what starter apartments are for!

Apartments are hard to work with- the beige walls and beige carpet make it hard for me to have the all white house of my dreams. I finally realized that wasn't realistic for right now, but comfortable happy was. So here is my little living area right now.

We had a 90's fabulous couch with red and green stripe- thankfully covered up by a pottery barn slipcover. The two chairs are just fill in's until I find "the ones." I don't know what I want right now but I will know when I see it, something clean lined. My new CB2 coffee table will go right here! See, I am getting my modern in !



We have blue velvet curtains- yes baby blue velvet curtains. I love them. Our prints from Italy hang above the couch. Other side of the room- not really anything special. I am looking for something to give a little height on the wall with the tv.


And here is our little dining space- waiting for a rug. But we did buy a much needed console table for that left wall at Nadeau, that amazing furniture store in Charleston I mentioned here. I was too lazy to take pictures of it, but I promise I will post some soon.
