Mood Board: Dining and Living Room Design Plans

So we have a deal. J is allowed to buy some fancy (yet, in my humble opinion, unnecessary) computer thing and I am allowed my equally fancy (yet also not entirely necessary) Chesterfield! Woot! I’m not sure he really understands what he’s agreed to, but I’m going with it, and quick, before he changes his mind. In light of that, I’ve nailed down my dining and living room design plans for the new house.

2014 In Review

2014 In Review

We spent most of 2014 getting settled in the UK after immigrating from the States in late 2013. I didn’t decorate much because we were in a short-term rental for most of the year, so I channeled my need to prettify mostly into design boards.
