cyber weekend to the rescue

*** I promise a full tour of the new house in a couple days***

What’s the upside of moving around the holidays?  SALES!  The new house needs, basically, everything.  It’s kinda scary especially for non-hoarder cheapskates like us.  Our old house had so many windows and doorways and radiators there wasn’t much room for furniture.  Obviously we’re not making any big purchases right away but blinds and rugs for a couple rooms needed to happen.

I’ve been plotting design schemes for the kid’s rooms.  This is their first move so getting them settled and cozy is a priority for me.  Here’s the as-of-this-minute design board for June’s room.  Trying not the change my mind….again.

June asked for pink walls (BM Wild Aster is my first choice) so I wanted to balance that with a not-so-sweet rug.  We picked up the one above from Overstock – it’s indoor/outdoor too.  Bonus!

Blinds also are a necessity.  I used these blinds in our old kitchen and loved them.  They have great color and texture and don’t cost a fortune.  It felt strange to pull the trigger on 15 of them but I put on my big girl pants and did it.


Finally, we needed some kind of floor covering in the dining room because the old, funky green carpet is coming up ASAP.  My eyes, not to mention my allergies, can’t handle it.  I took a chance on this olive green bound seagrass rug.  Fingers crossed it doesn’t turn out to be sage.  Shudder.


I promise a full tour of the new digs is coming in a couple days….see you then!
