The New Apartment: Living Room

This week is the big move. I haven’t had a lot of time to think about what I want to do with the space. After we get settled a little I’m definitely hiring a decorator since I know we’ll be in this apartment for a while. Here is what I’m thinking so far for the living room: A. Tall tall drapes all the way up to the ceiling {with wooden rod and rings}. B. Open Square bookshelves to define the office area {arranged with pretty books and art.} C. The Hutton Sofa maybe? D. A very large patterned rug. E. Art we love that looks good in the space F. Bright pillow accents.

    Good luck with the move, it sounds exciting, and hiring a decorator would be great, but i love all your ideas.

    yesterday at church i was eating a pop tart and a lady who was in her 70’s said, “oh you must be hungry.” i replyed, “well sort-of, but mainly i’m eating the pop tart tart because my husband said i had bad breath.” and then i did one of those insecure laughs people do when they first talk to new people. she didn’t crack a smile and seemed digusted. that’s when i missed my old ward. i knew that you or pepper or michelle or anyone would have found that sort of funny. i even started crying (not sobbing but the kind of crying that no one would have noticed) because i missed you all so bad. boohoo for me.

    You should come back.

    Or at the very least give me that lady’s address and we’ll toilet paper her house.

    Sounds like a busy week. I hope everything works out the way it is planned. I love the rug.

    I’m with Jordan.

    I have a costco membership – we can get the t-p in bulk. And maybe we leave a box of pop tarts on her doorstep?

    Oh and awesome design ideas Jordan.

    such great ideas! I also really liked that first photo of the blue bedroom from Domino, I have a page torn out too 🙂 You have so many nice ideas for your new place, it seems like everyone in blogland is moving lately. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.
