Making A Home

September 9, 2011

I heart interior decorating, so you can imagine my excitement at the thought of decorating our new home. I was so annoyed that we had to wait 4 months before we took possession. As I waited I would pour over magazines (paper & online). I had my list of design blogs that I would scour every night once Jamie had gone to bed, not to mention studying photos of our new house and planning where everything would go. I would change it all and make our home FABULOUS!!

Well, we have now been living in our house for almost 5 months and it is still not looking FABULOUS. I can't make a decision on anything, except the need to do SOMETHING!  So I thought if I dedicated every Friday's Blog Post to my HOME I will stop procrastinating, although I make no promises.

First up will be the family room- I find that our furniture is too dark and that we need to find some art to place on the wall. I am not a fan of the fireplace, but it is here to stay for awhile so I have to come up with a plan for it... 

So this is the deal- here are the photos of the room today, and then next Friday I will post the new design.....


I would like to have a gallery wall above the couch

This fire place taunts me everyday screaming "good luck with making me look good"

I would like to to dress up the windows with some type of treatment  
 Wish me luck ! Stay tuned for the unveiling next Friday.
