We’re gathering

With wedding festivities around the corner and a new-to-us home to curate, Jamie and I are spending all of our free time having a lot of fun online shopping! I guess it’s technically window shopping (or screen shopping?) since we’re not purchasing yet. We’re gathering.

When we moved into the loft I had ideas and plans for decorating the place, but I never felt inspired enough. It’s a tricky space — our bedroom and living area have no windows! — and we didn’t have a lot of time (or money) to put into it. Our current living situation has been wearing on us, but we are pulling through with the help of Pinterest and daydreams about the look and feel of our future home.

I love bright, natural light. (Why did I think living in a loft with minimal sunlight exposure would be a good idea?!) We won’t be making any major changes to the house right away, but we will be painting before we move in. The downstairs is currently painted a dark green color, so we’ll be putting a fresh coat of something light on the walls. Once we actually close we’ll go in and paint a few swatches on the wall before making the final decision, but we’ll be going with white…not sure if we’ll do a cool or warm white, but I’m leaning more toward warm. I like the idea of keeping things neutral but interesting through texture, shapes, and plants. Here is some of our inspiration so far:

With all the excitement in the air, sleep has been an after thought, which isn’t without perks. Each morning I’ve been perusing Craigslist in hopes of finding a few good pieces. We’ve found and purchased four things so far and they’ve been fantastic deals! I’ll share those pieces soon.

I’m off to lounge and gather more inspiration. Have a great Sunday!
