Busy As A Bee...

A Little Collage...
Sorry I missed Saturday's 'Lovely Ladies' post!  (No surprise there!  I'm SO bad about getting my weekly features up when I'm busy.)  We spent all weekend working on our new little home, and it's still not done.  And, we only have two pieces of our furniture moved in.  Two!  Sometimes I feel like we may never finish, but I know that once it's done, all of the hard work will be worth it.

I say that, because this time around, I'm creating a space that completely inspires me.  Before, I've always had to settle for this or that, and the space around me has never fully been what I've dreamed of.  This time around, I'm carefully choosing my dream furniture, fabrics, pictures and knick-knacks.

Our new room will also have two things that I have longed for:  white walls, and tons of natural light.  Our current apartment has ugly tan walls, with one ugly green wall in the living room.  And before that, I was living with all green walls.  There's a certain crispness to white walls that I am ever-so looking forward to.  I plan on decorating with floral prints and pops of color everywhere!

I can't wait to share pictures once it's finished.  It's only one room, but it's our one room, and I can't wait to fill it with creativity.

Love these photos! I think the idea of designing your dream room is so key to being creatively inspired. I feel like when I work in my studio where I'm surrounded by things I love, I'm so much more productive. And we just redid our living room, and I find myself feeling so much more relaxed there.

Just stumpled upon your blog. It's lovely!

P.S. That would be "stumbled," not "stumpled." ;)
Oh, and I am your newest follower! :)
