After a few days of feeling like I had no idea where to start, I finally pulled together some inspiration from my pinterest boards. Here's a look at some spaces I'm inspired by (please ignore the grammar errors on the mood board!):
When I showed these to Taras, I was pleasantly surprised by how on board he was with everything - totally excited to get some color in our life and even ready for a statement couch.
So far we're coming along slowly but surely - I could have never imagined how much time it'd take to choose a couch color or to pick between different styles of chairs. We've ordered a couch that should be here in a few weeks (spoiler: in the end, we decided not to get a statement-colored couch), we found a dining room table, and our dining room chairs came on Monday - hooray!
I'm excited to get these larger pieces in the house so I can start pulling it all together with the fun, small stuff - art, rugs, pillows, that sort of thing. And it should be interesting to see if the finished rooms even end up having a similar vibe to these inspiration photos.
I'm curious: do you have a favorite source for finding home decor inspiration?
You can find all of these photos in my interior design pinterest board, and follow those links for sources.
