As I mentioned earlier, one of my goals this year is to finish decorating our loft. It’s felt unfinished since we moved in. But last year was all about “project wedding” so our home took a backseat.The walls are mostly bare (despite being married to a beyond talented photographer who has tons of gorgeous photos), we don’t have a dining table (despite the fact I love to entertain…we have two stools at our kitchen island we eat at), our office looks like somebody ransacked it (it has become the place in our home we dump everything we don’t know what to do with) and our bedroom is pretty bare as well consisting of just the bed, a chair, a dresser and one piece of art. Clearly, it’s time to spruce the place up!
Our first project was the dining table but after going back and forth we’ve come to the conclusion we don’t really have space for one. Well, at least one that we would want. So we’ve decided to take out the existing marble counter on the island and put a much bigger wood top on it. One that has a huge lip around it so we can seat lots of people. Brilliant, huh? So now we are waiting patiently for the new wood top to be finished so we can have it installed. Patience is not a strong suit of mine. I’m already planning out dinner parties to throw the minute it is installed.
In the meantime I’ve been looking at pinterest for home inspiration ideas. When you look at my home board it is pretty clear what I like – neutral tones with bright pops of color & I’m a fan of ethnic rugs and prints. Luckily Brian likes most of my ideas expect he will NOT get behind my fabulous idea to paint the guest bathroom teal. Seriously, you would have thought I said “let’s have a baby!” with the look he gave me when I mentioned the color teal.
