Nick and I will have been moved out of our respective parents basements for a year come this December, that's about nine months. If our home were a baby it would pretty much be born now. This is embarrassing to me because I realize I still haven't shared a proper home tour on this blog.
The truth is, despite the fact that I aspire to be a curator of design perfection, I will never be that awesome. I'm slowly getting things how I want them but little Tommy has been a design hiccup (our living room is now dominated by cat toys) and the fact that we are renters means we can't do everything I would want to do (like wall mount the TV, install a back-splash, or replace all the light fixtures) plus, we don't have a lot of expendable monies to buy decor items. We pretty much make a once per four months trip to IKEA to get a few things on our super long list and that's it. Right now I would really like to buy a new bed frame with storage built in, some new his and hers matching dressers to replace both our large dresser and our nightstands, some nicer bookcases, and some bar stools. I would also really like to start thrifting textiles, hand stamping hand towels, and covering throw cushions. Yes please. There's a long list and making my way through it has just made me want to buy a home. I love condo living I really do (no grass to cut, underground heated parking, etc.) but I miss having a yard and a basement to retreat to in the summer. Nick and I aren't anywhere near being able to buy a house, but a girl can dream. In the meantime, here's some snaps of the apartment. Official home tour probably coming... never. Haha. We'll see.
