In all of my moving excitement, I have started thinking through what our new house will look like. I have narrowed down paint choices and sketched out where our furniture will fit and go. I have made a list of things here and there and I have used Photoshop to show hubby the look and feel I am going for.
As I pinned ideas and sketched my own, I decided that I wanted a timeless and classic but rustic feel for the living room. I wanted grey-ish walls and CT3 likes leather, so I would incorporate that and neutrals into the seating. I wanted a gallery wall, composed of mostly things that are meaningful to family and I wanted lots of pictures of my kids. I wanted bright and happy in the main areas and kitchen and while its the same lay out as our old house, I figured that new paint and some furniture and decor upgrades would make it feel completely different.
That said, here is the sketch that I put together and I think the look that CT3 and I are going for and how they compare with the old house.
I have done little sketches for a few of our other rooms as well and I am anxious to see how close I get in the real life designs and how it all turns out! I am by no means a decorator, so feel free to give tips and ideas! I have just a few more days before it all comes off the paper and into real life and couldn’t be more excited!
