I am so thrilled to share the second little look into our new home today! As I’ve mentioned (over and over again, ha!) we moved in over the past weekend, and we spent the past several days getting things we need to furnish the place. We have most of our furniture (just waiting for our bed and we need to buy a mattress), so the place is coming together quite nicely. It’s a shame that we have to leave this weekend to head back home for the holidays after we just moved in, but we’re excited to spend that time with our families.
So anyway! Let’s get to the second floor shall we? First, though, it’s been such an adjustment having two floors. I’ve only always lived in a one story home, so I’m not used to having to climb the stairs just to grab some socks and put something in the bathroom. I think now that it’s been a few days I’m starting to get used to it; however, I’m thinking my legs are going to be super toned by the time summer rolls around, ha!
First up – the bedroom. When I started thinking about our home, I never thought I would be going for dark furniture. However, once you start looking at things and thinking about buying, having #allwhiteeverything seems a bit bland. I mean, really – I just moved from my parents house where we had gorgeous colors on our walls everywhere, so although I love the white decor look, I know it’s not quite for us. So, we started looking for nice furniture with the height of the bed being most important and color coming second. We found a really great black platform bed with drawers, which is fun, and I can’t wait for it to get here. I’m also excited about this room because although the dark furniture will obviously make the room darker, the room is on the same side of the house as my office, which gets a beautiful soft natural light in the morning (currently).
Next up – the office! Now if you follow me on Instagram, then you saw my post on Monday that we already have my office mostly set up. It was totally on a whim! We went out Friday night looking for an air mattress and stuff for it to sleep with, and we ended up seeing this perfect little white desk that I had to have, so I grabbed it. On Monday morning I ran out and got a chair, and have spent my working hours in the office ever since. I left pretty much everything that I was going to hang or decorate this room with back at home (priorities, people!), so I’m excited to pick that stuff up and make this my perfect little space.
We’re definitely hoping to have everything mostly done by mid January, so you can expect to start seeing a little tour of our home around then.
