Of course, I did what any good blogger does: present only the best version of the house!
The first thing I did was finish the mobile that I started probably 6 months ago. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted an overly-dramatic mobile like Kat Von D has (I cannot find a picture of for the life of me) but I knew that paper cranes might be kind of difficult to work into children's decor, so I gave up that idea but was determined to come up with an alternative.
works on airplanes so it's almost like there's a piece of everyone is included.
After the mobile, I got to work hemming a bunch of curtains that have been hung for a long time. (Actually: I cheated, I used iron on hemming stuff, I didn't sew a thing.) And, I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but some of our smaller windows only had one panel of curtains so I added a 2nd panel and it made a huge difference. The windows look much more "decorated" now.
The third thing I did was make a cute little welcome mat for our front door. I'm in love with it! It's funny how such a small thing can make such a difference.
After glancing at my welcome mat for the 436298th time, I had an epiphany: my boss at my wedding planning internship says people should walk away from your wedding feeling like they know you better. Why shouldn't your house be the same?
Too often, I buy stuff because it goes, or I have a space that needs to be filled, but I just don't love it. So, with my recent epiphany, I gave myself 989 more things to do. We're fun and a little crazy, we're vintage and hip hop, we're glamour and grafitti, we're Michael Jackson and Seattle. I have no idea how I'm going to make it all work in our home, but I'm determined to. I completely overhauled one wall and the bookshelf in our house (and I'm in love with the finished result!) so I'll share that tomorrow.
What are your favorite parts of your house? Do you feel like people know you better after leaving it?
