I need furniture!

So one of the hardest things for me to do in this whole house decorating thing is make a decision.  I have this image in my head of what I want and pin a ton of things on Pinterest, then go to the store and end up walking out with nothing ordered or in the lay-a-way.  Well this weekend I made a step in the right direction!  I’ve had this thought for a few months that I was going to have all my furniture and walls neutral that way I could switch it up with pretty pillows, throws and rugs.  Went to the store yesterday and that all pretty much went out the window!  I went in with intentions of finding a comfy couch for my den that I’ve seen online. Sofa  I saw the couch and I like it, but then I saw this chair!  I knew I had to have it!  Even though it doesn’t go with my whole neutral decor – I couldn’t leave without putting some money down on that chair! purple chair Then I saw this chair and knew I wanted it too!  grey chairI put 2 of the grey ones and 1 of the purple ones on hold until after I get my floors refinished.  Now my whole decor for the living room is going to change.  I’m hoping I find a couch that will do these chairs justice!  My color pallet for my living room/dining room is now purple and charcoal 🙂

I’m not sure what my style would be considered, but I know I want comfy and functional. Oh and pretty!  lol!  What do you consider your style?  What ideas can you share with me???  I have pretty much a whole house to decorate!

Until next time!




And so it begins!

When I first purchased my home back in 2010 I had a ton of ideas on how I wanted to decorate my space.  Unfortunately as soon as I closed, my career in real estate took a nose dive!  I was able to take care of the essential items, but all my other ideas had to be put on hold.  Luckily, due to my background in real estate I didn’t have any big ticket items that needed to be immediately taken care of.  I’ve been able to live comfortably in my unfinished, practically unfurnished abode!

Now, I’m at a point in my life where I can pick up where I left off and start to get things done around here before I’m too old to enjoy it!  LOL!!  That’s part of the reason for this blog.  I still have a lot of great ideas, but have the hardest time making a final decision – which is why I still have paint swatches on my dining room wall because I can’t choose a color for my accent wall.  I’m hoping that writing things out and having photos will help me make some final decisions.

The other part of this blog is to share my weekend activities, DIY’s and occasional destinations – and whatever else may come up!  This weekend didn’t consist of much other than some relaxing and getting my yard ready for some things I want to take care of outdoors.  Today is relaxation day.  I made a delicious brunch and am wrapping it up with an afternoon of DVR recordings and Bellini’s.

Enjoy your Sunday and I’ll check back in next weekend!
