Good Design Takes Time
Updated: Nov 9, 2018
I am lucky enough I get to really think about design of each and every room, and I won't purchase (much) furniture until my design is finalized. We do have an obstacle and a reason why - we can't actually purchase anything UNTIL we sell our Florida house. So we must wait - and design everything virtually, for now.
But you know what? I think it's great that we are actually living in the house, feeling it out, seeing what works and what doesn't - and what will make the home more homey. This process is actually great - and as much as I want the house to be finished - I am ok with waiting!
I decided early on what the theme and the design of the house will be. Read it here. And so far, I have been following my design plan perfectly. I am designing a pretty, yet cozy, comfy house that will not break the bank - and a house that will be suitable for us and our two dogs.
I had to cut and adjust my budget slightly, but more about this on another post. For now, here are my renderings of what I want our living room to look like.
A reminder of the awkward before pictures:
