Yesterday I got the opportunity to attend a social media event at Williamstown, a new housing development in Airdrie ( a community just north of Calgary). When I got my invite, I was excited to see some of my mom blogger friends but I wasn’t sure what else I would get out of it. Then I remembered….we just bought a new house! I love nothing more than a beautifully decorated house but I seem to have missed that “design” bit needed to make it happen. I had totally forgotten how well show homes are always decorated. Seeing fully decorated rooms totally shows me ideas that I would never figure out if I saw all the pieces separately.
I never thought I would like a wallpaper this busy so much. I KNOW that had I seen it on a roll in the wallpaper store, I would have made a snide remark about how ugly it was. However, after seeing it actually on a wall….I love it! Definitely only on one feature wall though.
I really like these silver candlesticks. Again, I don’t know that I would have bought them before I saw how great the looked. My friend, Melissa, tells me that I can find these at Ikea. Score! Pretty & cheap!
Chandelier in the bathroom? Yes please! I don’t know that this will make it into our new house but I love how it looks. So pretty!
Aren’t these chairs pretty? I really like blue and brown. We will be ditching our cat scratched leather couch and I would love to move to some pretty cloth covered couches & maybe a couple of chairs like this. I thought I liked leather furniture but now I’ve decided that it’s really NOT me.
Now my phone is full of pictures and my mind is full of ideas. Thankfully we have lots of nice furniture to make the move (though we DO need to replace some of it) so mostly I need accessories to “finish” the rooms and give them that design “pop”. I can’t wait to get started!
