French Charm

A and I moved into our new house roughly three months ago (!). We've done so many projects already ... As I'm not one to just sit tight and wait for things to happen! I blame my three years in New York City for the exhausting hustle (which I secretly love). We've painted floors, many walls, cut sheetrock, put new sheetrock in holes in the walls, replaced light fixtures ... The list goes on. I apologize for not posting anything here! It's been more exhausting than I anticipated, as we've done all the work ourselves, aside from re-finishing and ripping out the carpet in the bottom two guest rooms and upstairs master.

Phew! I'm excited to actually start getting into the look of the house, which means art! Furniture! Pretty things! But ... I've run into some internal issue's (kinda). I knew style and likes and opinions and tastes change, but I didn't think my taste and love for things would change so quickly in just the two years I've lived in Seattle. I used to love all things new and white and crisp and Scandinavian and in all honesty, pretty sterile designs that lacked character and comfort. 

Now that we've moved into our cape cod that has a massive front and backyard with three garden beds ready to be loved ... It has a more relaxed, country feel to it; a feeling our last rental house and apartment just didn't have. Each place is totally different, but I love this one the most (Thank goodness right? We just spent all our life savings on it.)

Here's where I'm at with inspiration as of late.
