Wallpaper Revisited

So one time like a month and half ago, I was fixated on ordering wallpaper for our living room. I was determined to have it ordered and up within the week. Okay maybe I wasn’t that ambitious, but I wanted to have it ordered. Then I remembered I needed to finish the nursery. Priorities. I just want to take this time to congratulate myself on controlling my ADD long enough to finish up a space.

On to the choices and how y’all voted. All of them are Rifle Paper Co. from Hygge & West because duh. Also don’t judge my photoshopping too much.

Rosas

Rosas. Probably the boldest choice of all garnered 14 votes. It’s a classic Anna Bond pattern that I’ve loved for years.

Queen-Anne

Queen Anne. Darkest option but the reflective gold keeps it from being too overpowering in the room. Receiving 9 votes from the internets. The black would hide the tv beautifully and laying art on this wallpaper would be gorgeous. It’s $40 less per roll.

Copper-Peonies

Peonies in Copper. The lightest option in the white room above the white cabinets, but the beautiful bright blue and copper speaks for itself. One vote shy of 1st place coming in with 13 votes.

Rosas

We ordered the Rosas. I’m slightly nervous about going so bold, but I think it’s going to be absolutely gorgeous in that space especially across from our kitchen. Now is the point in our story that we see how my procrastination saved me lots of monies. I’m sure you’ve all seen Ana Gasteyer’s bathroom. Hygge & West is offering 20% off by entering ManhattanNest at checkout. Boom $110 saved. So thanks Daniel and Hygge & West for being just incredible and saving us money.

Now let’s see what kind of hilarious ensues when we hang this ourselves!!

Blinds for the Nursery

It’s finally here. We are finally ¬†ready to talk about the nursery. Were you waiting in eager anticipation for the last 3 months? No? You forgot that we blogged? Well, that wasn’t very nice of you to say.

Anyways, we’re going to start talking about some parts of the nursery first, and eventually getting around to showing the whole room finished. Backwards? Yes. But we decided to not wait until the room is completely styled and photographed to start putting this stuff out there.

Select Blinds

So… Blinds. When we moved into the house we immediately needed to keep the neighbors from seeing all the shady stuff that we do, so we put up temporary paper blinds. The longest ones we could find at Home Depot weren’t long enough for our windows, so we ended up connecting two on each window (pretty much the classiest look in existence).

Small Moments and the Current State of Things

Some moments and the current state of things

I think we have hit somewhat of a brick wall over here. I’d like to say it’s because we are just plain exhausted from making house decisions. There’s probably something to that. However if I’m totally honest with¬†myself, I know it’s because we are just awful at pulling the trigger on finishing things (i.e. the last 5% of the nursery – it’s coming guys I promise).

We had like 2 things hanging on the wall in our first house. We didn’t hang anything until a pinterest challenge made us in the last house. I was hoping that would change when we moved here. I mean it will be at least 4 years until we move again, right? (Cue maniacal laughter then insert tears.)

Wallpaper Love: Rifle Paper Co + Hygge and West

Wallpaper3

Let’s just talk about the elephant in the room. The 202″ x 83″ elephant known as the untextured placeholder of a wall that needs some wallpaper. Sometimes I just sit on the couch and get anxiety while I stare at it. Obviously I’m dealing with real problems around here.

Propane Problems

Propane Problems

Sometimes you run into home expenses than are just plain unfun/depressing/insert disappointed descriptor here. I would have much rather made some cute decor purchases instead of dealing with our propane tank, but there’s an aesthetic win here too so hold tight!
