Our housing situation is about to shift! We will be moving from my spacious, much loved 1920's apartment complete with 4 walk in closets, a sun room/studio, large second floor porch, original hardwood floors, gallery style hallway, vintage tile and fixtures in the bathroom, charm to spare, you get the idea, I could go on but I won't, to Brett's rather "compact" first floor condo. Yes, it too has original fixtures and vintage charm, but they are of the 1988 variety. But, I am ready to move onto this next chapter of our lives and I embrace it as a design challenge. We have already made some huge strides and made it over to get it on the market, but I just don't think it's going to sell in 6 weeks. So, I am already mentally moving and settling in.
bedroom, dining room, playroom...
This weekend I got an email from West Elm that sale furniture was an extra 20% off. A dresser I have always loved was on sale and I had a gift card, so we decided to pounce. We saved about $700! And I figure it will be a piece we can use in many rooms in many houses in the future.
Yup, looks good now! No one lives here!
These are some shots of the condo bedroom, the dresser will go on the wall facing the foot of the bed under that large painting. Doesn't really match the dark wood sleigh bed that is in there now, but that will probably be replaced by my upholstered headboard.
So, to tie the headboard to the light wood dresser and complete the room, I need some bedside tables. I have always had my heart set on a pair of Saarinen marble top tulip tables, but that is not really in the budget right now and I don't want to invest too much into the decor of this condo since I hope we won't live here for long. So I am giving myself a budget of $100 for the pair, hopefully less! Make? Buy? Find? We'll see what happens.
Atlanta flea markets, here I come!
