our new digs are really feeling like home. we've been here five months, put a lot of love into things & are really loving it. that said, making this place ours takes resources, and so we're taking it one phase at a time. this next phase we have some key details we'd like to add that are one part function and one part lovely. here are some of the things we've been looking at:
we've managed to break 3 of 5 mixing bowls since we moved in (?!). we've decided these plastic ones will be lighter and slightly more durable.
i think this basket is good looking and oh so useful (i'm thinking of putting it by the stairs because i seem to make endless trips up & down to carry things)
our living room is one of my favorite places in the house. currently, we only have one overhead light, which makes it hard to read/not quite as cozy. i've had my eye on a lamp like this for a long time.
what do you think? i could really use your help now, we have a few other key pieces & i'd love to know the places you go to find:
- night stands (we want something a little unique, high quality & that we'll love for a long time)
- in the family room, we need something at the windows, i've been really drawn to curtains with thick horizontal stripes (that's a fun room and i want to do something bold in there) -- i can't find them anywhere. any etsy seller who does custom work for a reasonable price? other ideas?
- rugs, in pretty much ever room. we have gorgeous hardwood floors, but a few rooms need some warmth.
- a white breadbox for the kitchen
would love to hear your ideas on where to find these! more after photos soon! xo
