New Home: Decor Inspiration

So I think it's safe to say that I'm officially no longer a blogger. Whoops. That's what a chaotic whirlwind of a past couple months will do to you, I guess. But there are some exciting new things going on around here, so I figured I'd pop in for a post or two and see how things go. The "vacant" sign will most likely remain just as intact as it has been since the end of June, but hey, at least I'm here today, right?

Anyway, what's new around here is the little place I bought last month that I'm in the process of fixing up and decorating. It's nothing major but exciting nonetheless since I love home decor about as much as I love snuggling on rainy Sunday mornings.

And with decorating comes a new inspiration collage board. Because, hello do you even know me? I think everything including my Chipotle order deserves one.

Here's what I came up with this time around:

If you've been around for the past couple years, you'll notice that this is rather different from my Manhattan apartment's living room decor and inspiration board

It's not so much that the pink and gold from my last space wasn't "me", because I love that girly side of my style, but this is definitely more me and way less "I'm stuck in a Pinterest trend and can't break myself out of it." It's also seventeen hundred and a half times more grown up, too. So there's that.

The style in the board I made this time around has me swooning. Neutral, clean, tons of white, feminine but not frilly, all with a modern farmhouse feel.

The top picture is from The Wood Grain Cottage's home tour. A home I've basically already moved into. In my head, that is. I love just about everything in that place and have spent way too many hours going through every single post of Shayna's wondering how I can emulate her decor tastes in my own way.

I've purchased quite a few things so far. The floral duvet, white dresser, grey dining chairs, standard goods bin, metal hairpin legs, succulents, and pillows (in the bottom picture's fabric pattern) are all patiently waiting for me to place them into their respective homes. All I need to do is finish caulking, spackling, sanding, priming, painting, and bathing myself in turpentine to get all the oil-based paint off at the end of each day before I can actually start moving things in. Womp.

But in the mean time, wish me luck and stay tuned for some before and after posts!
