Decorating ideas for my new home

13 Feb

Since I am the Queen of “Getting Ahead of Yourself”, I’ve started collecting some ideas for the rooms in my (hopefully) soon-to-be home.

I know I’ve kept you all in the dark with which one I picked. This is it!


The sellers have agreed to my offer, and now it’s on to their bank for their short sale approval. Their lien is with a local bank, so this could be a short process, but who knows. The average timeframe is 3-6 months for a short sale approval.

So, on to the topic of the post.. decorating!

I plan on turning the master bedroom, which now looks like this…


into this…

master bedroom

with dark grey paint, light blue quilt, my current Pottery Barn flowery sham for a pop of color, and silver accents.

And the office that currently looks like this…


into this…


with a SATC movie-esque paint color, small white desk, and the Pottery Barn organization system. And I say small desk because I really don’t want to move my real work home. It needs to stay there so I don’t stress about it. So my home office will be for paying bills and possibly scrapbooking.

That’s it for now. I have more ideas in my head for a guest room, yoga room, library, and living room! The house is big, so I better start putting money away for furniture!!!

    One of the best things about home ownership is decorating. 🙂 I almost bought a house by myself back when I was 25. I was single and ready to own my own house. I was sooo excited about the decorating and painting!

    The house fell through for me and it ended up being a good thing (for me) but moving in with my boyfriend who owned a house I got to decorate and remodel his house without the stress! 🙂

    I hope everything goes smoothly with the bank and you get the keys soon! I’m also loving your decorating ideas and can’t wait to see how everything turns out!

    I am so excited for you! Those decorating ideas look lovely. While I’ve been entertaining new house and things, the boyfriend is a practical man and wants to save enough money. So now, I get to have fun decorating the apartment in creative and inexpensive ways. We’ve both been pretty ‘jump off the cliff’ haven’t we? 😛
