(the dream has now slightly shifted to the most richest-and-famousest-psychologist who will help Suri Cruise during her tumultous teenage years and possible "questioning-of-sexuality" phase.)
So this new townhouse thing is a good way for me to get back in the saddle... err.. learn how to ride, actually. The place is new-- 2007-- so no renovations are required. Just little touch-ups here and there. New paint, fixing drywall in certain places, etc. But once our stuff is in there, I have this teensey feeling that it's going to feel like the college-student-meets-real-world and totally need some TLC, design wise. So I'm trying my hand at this. I do best with inspirational photos, so I'm starting to really try and figure out my design sense, which is probably a lot like my fashion sense. A little but of everything. I like traditional, but not too traditional. I like modern, but not too contemporary. I like color, but I like neutrals, too. I love texture but don't always dig patterns (hate florals, don't do "busy"). Sigh. This is going to be tough.
Here are pics I've come up with so far. Plan of attack for today? Appliance shopping (new fridge and stove/oven), maybe some mattress shopping, and then hittin' up West Elm and Pottery Barn for some more inspiration (and possibly a duvet? let's not get ahead of ourselves. Baby steps. Ahem.)...
