Wish List

After working all day, I'm having a lazy evening.  Curled up on the couch with Lucy & Ella and browsing Craigslist for these items on my wish list:

farmhouse table for my breakfast room
love the mismatched chairs

brown leather chair for my living room

old suitcases to add to my collection


a neutral area rug for my dining room

Neutral Decor

My husband is out doing a little grocery shopping (yes!) I thought I'd post a quickie with some inspiration.  Lately I've been trying to define my design style.  According to the HGTV quiz, it's "Romantic".  I went to the library last week and brought home a dozen decorating books.  Well from that, my style seems to be a mix of Modern Country, Thrifty Chic, Well-Worn, Cottagey, & Southern.  According to the new issue of Real Simple, my style is a cross of Casual Chic and Vintage Eclectic.  I still don't really know what to call my taste, but what I do know is that I love me some neutral decor.  I love color, don't get me wrong, but neutral is so relaxing.  I love being able to go shopping and not have to worry if something fits in with my color scheme.  Here are a few "Neutral" Rooms courtesy of BHG.


The last 4 are my favorites.  Ahhhhh....

A little bit of a sneak peek...

If you've read some of my blog posts, you know that my husband and I have been rehabbing an old 1925 house.  I found this before shot of 1/2 of my living room so I thought I'd snap a photo of what it looks like right now.



Here are some other little areas around my house that make me happy:


We still have a TON of work to do, but it's starting to feel like home.
