There is something about the arrival of warm weather in the spring, and even warmer weather in the summer, that makes me want to redecorate the house. Before Eleanor was born, I would usually want to repaint, now I’m too tired to deal with repainting an apartment we might not live in another year. The last few years I’ve just been doing little things, like getting a new vase, rearranging the living room furniture, getting a new potted succulent for the front door.
This year, thanks to my 30 by 30 list (specifically #s 8 & 14) I’ve decided to take on some bigger projects. I’m in the middle of redecorating the patio, Eleanor’s room, and our bedroom.
I’ve been using Pinterest to collect my decor ideas. Here is some of my inspiration:
The bedroom still needs a lot of work. I’m going for a yellow, gray & white theme. So far I only have a new duvet cover and sheets. I hope to have everything finished by the end of August at the latest.
Eleanor’s room needs a few more pieces. It’s a bright butterfly theme, by her request. It’s almost done. We’ve got a new quilt and sheets, a new lamp, some butterfly decals for two of the walls. I just need some more art for the walls and I’m thinking about making a mobile. We’ll see. I hope to have it done in the next few weeks.
I should have the patio done this weekend! I’ve got new chairs with pillows, a rug, a little table, some lights, It just needs one or two finishing touches. I’ll have photos for you next week!
