Updates on our new house

Now that demo is in full swing at our new house I am spending all of my free time trying to get things decided on and ordered. As I realized with this home, Spencer is a very opinionated "client". We spent last night looking at mantles, tile, pendants and wallpaper. All things I never thought he cared about... all things he feels very strongly about.

Here are some of things we considered, decided on and/or discarded. Just thought it might be fun to share where my head is at


This sofa is fabulous. Love how streamlined it looks but is probably still really comfy.

Love this mantle profile, its different than what you see everywhere, but ultimately we decided it might be a little too simple.

We're going white on our main level, but other than that I totally undecided on decor. Surprise, surprise, I do know we're going a very different direction in our bedroom at the new house. So if anyone is interested in a coral/pink, custom, king sized headboard at an awesome price (in the Chicago area), let me know!

In case anyone is looking for a Chicago area contractor we're working with Scott Lyon Construction. They are fantastic!

  13. I think it's so interesting and funny how guys all of a sudden have opinions when decorating. I mean I think in the houses and apartments my husband lived in before we got married I don't think he ever thought twice about decor and certainly didn't paint, hang curtains, add accessories. So why does he seem to want to have input now?! hah Good luck with the new house and looking forward to seeing what you two pick out together! :)
