I like the casual vibe that non-matching chairs give out.

But knowing me I'm a little too anal to actually do it in my own house.

Serenity Now

It would be so so so nice to just curl up in bed on a cool fall day with magazines and hot chocolate. I can't even call in a sick day to do so because of the current living conditions. This is my perfect bedroom. I can't wait until December so I can do just that in a room just like this.


We stalked the site everyday for more than a week and NOTHING. Then one night the in-laws drove by and BAM...we have a house! As soon as the roof goes on and the stairwell is set we can go inside!

Brace yourselves, it's a doozy.

White Ektorp!

These pulls and knobs. It's all in the details, people.

This couch, upholstered in charcoal

This gorge West Elm mirror (on sale!)

Two of these counter stools

Hettle pillows
Other things I need, that I should've thought about sooner: a (black) mailbox! garage door openers! and ceiling fans!
Either the counter stools or the C&B pillows will be on their way to me by the end of the weekend. Any votes?

Basement and Wood

I almost cried when we drove up over a week ago and saw that progress was FINALLY being made.We have a walkout door and one giant window so Jimbo won't die from lack of Vitamin D in his man cave.And today we saw wood! We've been told that the end of October is a pretty good possibility. Oh, but they better not be teasing me.

The Lamp is Nice

Pottery Barn
But it's the wall color I'm entranced by. I NEEEEEEED this color in my bedroom. Does anyone know what color it is? My guess is a Benjamin Moore paint since it's from PB.

Oh, and if you're really interested the lamp is on sale here.

House progress photos coming soon ....
