… and she’s off!

August 24, 2010

Yes, I have a new project of the interior decorating kind!

A lot has happened in the last 2 months…

A new job! 😀

The Man proposed and – DUH – I said HELL YES!!! At Wrigley Field, no less… *swoon*

And… The Child, The Man and I moved in to a new house…

While I am still a great lover of all things girlie and modern, this house is going to challenge me to evolve. Living with a very manly man (YAY!) should probably cause me to tone down my love of chrome, but I think he secretly loves it, too! 🙂

The real challenge is that this house already has a personality. It is rich in woodwork, intricate details, and Craftsman style fabulousness. I want to create a space that is “us” but also respects the beauty that it was born with.

While I had months to ponder how I would decorate every square inch of my new little family’s house, now that we are there my best laid plans do not seem as perfect as I had imagined. I didn’t expect the house to have a voice in the matter. But it does – and I’m having fun listening!

My challenge is to mix my  love of modern and shiny with Craftsman – and make it look deliberate. (I think I can, I think I can!). (Hmmm… this doesn’t seem like as much evolving as I mentioned earlier 😉 )

So hold on tight… this is going to be fun!



  1. Two words:



    off with a bang baby!

  2. we have room for guests – hint hint.

  3. Good luck honey! Let me know if you need any help! 🙂

    • I will need LOTS! We have Haley’s things to paint, as well as some other icky paint projects…

      And I need your table for the kitchen 🙂
