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.)
I hung our chair print first (see above). Our open shelving isn’t styled at all. Honestly the inside of our cabinets are a hot mess too. Baby steps guys…so there’s a picture frame on that wall.
I threw together a tiny moment on our living room mantel. It’s basically a remix of the mantel in the master at our last house (which coincidently enough was also spurred by a pinterest challenge). I’m sensing a pattern.
A somewhat quirky addition was our RESTROOM sign from Schoolhouse Electric that was formally in our gallery wall. It actually marks where the half bath is for guests. I love it on the black doors.
I was trying to style the top of the hutch, so I gathered all our glass bottles. The rest just fell into place. Nick is not a fan. If you think it’s because of the creepy painting, you’re so wrong. He’s a huge creepy painting fan…more on that later. He hates that the top is very old items then I filled the hutch with new housewares that we had – most of which is white.
Admittedly, it is conflicting. It could look better, but it will stay for now. I’m trying to get better at the “for now” part of things. I am not a temporary fix kind of person. I want it all done right or not at all. Sounds amazing right? Except what it means in real life is…
Tons of decor scatted all around the house. Waiting. Most of it lines the walls in the formal dining. Unfortunately we use the formal dining every day since that’s where our only table is right now. We have pictures leaning on the wall along with breakables and JFK busts. I mean all kinds of randomness that we’ve collected is sitting along all the dining room walls – insanity.
I love that stuff. I just have a hard time committing to put it in a specific place that isn’t my dining room floor apparently. We have this giant moose head that’s incredible. It’s never been hung after 3+ years of owning it. It could go ANYWHERE which is exactly why it goes no where.
I wanted to share these tiny moments in the house. These representations of temporary solutions in our home. We are about 95% finished with Beckett’s room. The hold up is finding a side table. The one thing I won’t do is purchase something as a temporary solution. It’s proving to be nearly impossible to find something that we both love for in there.
Thanks for being patient with us while I work through my crazy decorating habits. Please tell me I’m not the only one who suffers from design paralysis.
