1 + 2 + 3 + 4

Home Decor shopping is something I have dreamed about doing for years! Ever since I was in high school I would purchase ELLE Decor + House Beautiful + Martha Stewart Living, just to swoon over all the gorgeous decorated homes -- envisioning what my future house would look like once I had the income to be able to purchase all those 'over-priced' but beyond fabulous items! N finally closed on the DC house last week & it has slowly started to sink in that it is now time to find + purchase all of those fabulous items I once dreamed about. Now I am still broke as a joke, so technically N is the one doing all the purchasing but I am helping him with the home decor hunt & I am surely enjoying myself. 

Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn & West Elm are some of my favorite stores to shop in! Those fabulous champagne glasses & white dishware are from Crate & Barrel, which have already been purchased + will be unpacked this weekend! The HIS + HERS bathroom rugs from Pottery Barn have been on my wish list for F O R E V E R, but I am still trying to convince N that we should get those pretties for our bathroom! I have high hopes ;) Now my A B S O L U T E favorite item on my list this week is that polar bear rug that will be going in the office! eeeeek. I squealed just alot alittle when I sent N this beautiful rug in an email & he just so happened to purchase it. I am one happy girl!

chandy love

My new found love for Chandeliers, aka Chandy's for short has gotten to be just a tad bit obsessive! Ever since N & I picked out granite + flooring for the new house I have been dreaming of adding one or 10 chandy's to the house, not sure that is going to fly with him! ha & to be honest there really aren't too many places that I can add them except for our bathroom, the dining room/living room area, + possibly the guest bedroom. Our laundry room doesn't have its own room + the terrace well doesn't exactly have a ceiling, so having an outside chandy is out of the question. But until we get moved in I will keep looking at pretty pictures + hoping that atleast one room in the house will get a chandy makeover!

swoon: office spaces

 one  |  two  |  three  |  four  |  five  |  six  |  seven

Lately, studying has not been on the top of my priority list & it really needs to be. Buuuut looking for pretty chic offices spaces has been, & I feel like I have convinced my self that if I were to have a pretty office space then I would get more work done. Yes I think all of us bloggers tell ourselves that! I keep hinting to Nick that in the new house I want to have my very own office space that I can decorate all pretty with wallpapered walls, furry chairs, hand picked peonies, & giant letter initials with a beautiful new MAC desk top computer. Now lets just say that that hasn't gone over so well, since he wants his very own space too. I even tried to compromise & say that we could split the room in half? Not a bad idea huh? Well I thought it was a good one! & yeaaaah he didn't ha. So until then, if ever, I will continue to swoon over beautiful office spaces, & I will try to convince myself to study so that I don't fail my exam at the end of the month! :]

What types of office spaces are you bloggies swooning over? 

Good news: Last night was my last over night shift! woot woot! & today I will be heading up to DC to see my Nicholas. We have an appointment tomorrow to look at flooring for the new house! oh & here is some pictures of the progress of the house! foundation walls have been poured! :]
