This is my attempt at knowing how I'd like to decorate and make purchases for our next home. I need something with a strong sense of style that reflects our family's taste. When you're decorating on a really tight budget, you need a plan so you don't waste money on pieces you don't really like or lose focus of what you really need. I'll be filling it up with images and lists in preparation for the new place.
I found these this weekend at a local antique store. I love Mellimac! I've been collecting the Mellamine that Target started putting out last Spring because I love the idea of a bright, mix and match kitchen. My mom has always had Pyrex in her kitchen so it feels right to have it in mine. Brett and I are planning to move to the Midwest near the beginning of Summer via U-Haul and are hoping to catch an Ikea on the way to load up on a few pieces of furniture in a box. One of the benefits of having moved so often in the last four years is getting to start fresh with furnishings. We've given away and sold most of the furniture we've ever owned every time we've relocated but having a child means doubling the amount of 'necessary' furniture to take with you.
Flickr has been a fabulous source of inspiration for the new place.
A girl can dream or a girl can plan.
More news later. My mind is starting to shut down for the night.
