My heart is hurting from all of the devastation and loss in Oklahoma. Thankfully, all of our family (with one coming very, very close to the tornado's path) and friends have been accounted for, but I know so many were not as lucky.
Recently, I took a class at Sherwin Williams where I got the opportunity to learn more about color combinations and different painting techniques. During this time I was introduced to their 2013 color forecasts and fell in the love with their "vintage moxie" combination.
I haven't used many purples, pinks, or golds in my decor before, but I think this is a lovely combination, and it is exactly what I've been imagining for our new apartment. It is finally moving week (I feel like I've been talking about moving for months), so hopefully things will be coming together quickly!
Even though our apartment is an absolute mess and filled to the brim with boxes (did I mention how stressful moving is?), I couldn't resist stocking up on some flowers to bring a little pretty back into our place.
Also, how cute is he? It's hard to stay stressed when you look at this sweet, peaceful face.
Like I mentioned in my post earlier this week, stay tuned for some very exciting things that are happening around here!
Oh my goodness, this weekend was a little crazy. I'm not going to go into the million different things that went wrong, but I will say that my car broke down on the side of the highway on the way back home to Dallas, and after four attempts over two days we finally made it back home. My car is still stuck in Oklahoma, but we're trying to make the best of it. This on top of moving stress makes this quote particularly relevant for me right now. It's times like these that make me realize how incredibly lucky we are to have families that are willing to drop everything and help us out.
Posts might be a little sporadic over the next two weeks, but when everything is back to normal I'll have a lot of new decorating pictures and surprises for you! I'm so excited for the changes coming my way!
I'm helping to do a redesign of a tween bedroom this weekend. Here is the inspiration board that I created for her.
Her requirements were "Thunder colors" with zebra and leopard print.. you gotta love the imagination of kids. Here were some of the goodies I picked up this week to make her vision happen.
I love doing kid's rooms because they are so bright and colorful. They're also usually open to pretty much anything, so you get to have some fun!
