Yesterday I found out that my proposal was selected for a team project we are doing in my designing career class. 3 project ideas were selected out of everyone who submitted them. As it turns out, I am also the team leader for my team (team 3! My lucky number!) We have to put together a project proposal for the idea I came up with. This is going to be interesting for sure. Needless to say I will be very busy with school over these next 19 days.
Before I found out about my project proposal, I started putting together some idea boards/designs for some of the rooms in our new place. I only was able to start ideas for the living room and my office. I found that putting together these “sets” took a lot longer for me than putting together fashion sets. Why? because with interiors of your home, you have to make super thoughtful choices, because you will be looking at all of it a lot longer than you would an outfit in your closet. You don’t just completely change the interior of your home with each season. You usually have it all in place for years before you even consider doing something new.
These are my ideas and likes. I would also have to pass this by the husband first. I care what he thinks, as it is his home too…however, he is usually pretty cool about what I pick. He has never said no to anything I have picked out. He even didn’t mind it when I painted our bedroom shell pink! He is a good guy.
Here is what I came up with for our living room…
I really LOVE mid-century modern type furniture. I think it is fun! I also love lots of light, so of course I gravitate towards the more pastel colors, as they don’t absorb as much natural light, but instead reflect it.
For my office, I want it totally girly and feminine! It’s my office after all, so I can have as much pink as I please!!
I love the chaise lounge, pink macbook, and pink chairs!! When I was a kid I was in love kitty cat clocks, so when I found this one on Polyvore, I just had to add it!! Not only is it pink, it also has eyelashes!!! LOL! So cute! When Ciarra was looking at this start to my office ideas, the first thing that came out of her mouth was, “The last thing you would want on your pretty pink chair, is a black cat!” LOL!! Ah yes…gotta love the cat hair! Always thinking ahead she is! 😉 I will have an office “mascot” for sure…what I am not sure of yet, is what it will look like! 🙂
So I will be posting up more rooms later once I complete them. There is a lot to think about! I still have no idea what color I will do our bedroom. Ciarra already has somewhat of an idea for hers, but Soren is not sure yet either. I know what sort of a kitchen I want, and then there is the great room/family room. That room will most likely be in the same sort of colors as the living room.
I am having a good time putting these together. It is so exciting and fun to boot! I need to start scouring flea markets, and furniture shops soon, so I can get an idea of how much things will cost. A budget is a must!
Time for some breakfast!! I hope everyone is having a great day!!
Until next post,
