my house lacks style, pt. 1
So, we moved into our new house just about three months ago because we were quickly outgrowing our townhouse. Now, while I love our beautiful (bigger, airier) new home, it's (relatively) new construction and is lacking a bit of character. I was too busy to care at first, but lately it's been bumming me out. Also, I've been totally lazy about decorating, so that hasn't helped. We had the first floor of the house painted while we were in Disney World (Sherwin-Williams Collonade Gray SW7641), so now we're slowly-but-surely starting to get around to finally hanging some of our stuff.
So far, we've gotten the dining room pretty well situated:
Pretty amazing what just hanging some artwork (and a fantastic mirror) can do.
I'm in love with my super colorful prints. They represent various landmarks in my hometown, painted by a local artist named Brenda Wintermyer. We received the first print as a wedding gift and have made the subsequent prints our Christmas gift to ourselves each year.
I've been feeling yellow and gray lately, so that's where my other pops of color come in.
My curtains are custom drapery panels from thislittlehome (etsy) in Suzani Print in Corn Yellow and Slub White.
My chevron table runner (that needs to be ironed, I know. And is too short for the table with the leaf in, I know.) is from Appleberry Attic via Very Jane. (do you know about Very Jane's daily deals? Awesome.)
So it's a start, anyway. The good thing about this being a work-in-progress is that I should have plenty of blog material. Stay tuned as I make my way through the house!
