Decorating... Real World Style

It's been such a long time... but a ton has happened! We bought our first house, and picked out grown up furniture and paint colors. Unfortunately, this has taken a toll on creative endeavors. However, soon I look forward to having a dedicated arts and crafts space (for now, the unfinished basement next to the washer and dryer).

Anyway, here are some pictures of my real life home design (mind you, we're still about 50% in boxes); it seems miniatures have inspired my real life paint and furniture choices.
First: this are still in boxes, but my Pottery Barn knock off living room tables. We got them in black:
Secondly, we bought this sofa in brown with a matching loveseat from Macy's. I love the mid century-ness of it. I also bought a fun accent chair, pictures to come later.
Our dining room set, a bit classic with a bit contemporary, also sitting partially in boxes. I can't wait to see my Fiesta Ware in the hutch!
A real life picture of our bedroom. I love the lime green, it's less neon in real life and is quite cheerful. Notice the lack of window treatments!
And a quick shot of our tiny guest room. I could have had this room as a craft room, but I'd rather have a guest room. I also need the extra clothing storage... I love the yellow.

Anyway, keep an eye out for me, I'll be back to crafting in no time! Until then, enjoy the summer!
