Yesterday afternoon after having another round of house hunt, Matt watched the masters as I jumped around in the Internet looking at dining room tables, couches, decorative mirrors and whatever nesting "stream of consciousness" lead me to.
After a while I looked up and noticed Matt watching me...and he clearly had been quite some time. "Mm Hm. MMMMMM HM." He said giving me a sly eye and then went back to watch Tiger digging himself into another ditch.
I can't help doing what he calls "Virtual Nesting" while we are doing this whole house search thing. After living in Boston Shoebox and our fully furnished in law suite currently, we have next to no furniture. When we move into our new place, I want to know what I want and where to find it so our new home can unfold in a pop up book sort of way. Of course that would be way too easy and way to expensive but but googling for vintage bakers racks is way more fun than watching Golf on Television, so I have my vice and my husband has his.
Along with furniture, paint swatches have also been receiving a lot of attention from me. Right now I am trying to decided if Turquoise is a fabulous color for a dining room---or too bright and too cold and too, too.
Here are some if the images that are helping me mull it over.
Wait. Before you take a peak I want to say a word about Turquoise and loving the home you live in.
I know Turquoise is the pantone color for 2010. I know that next year it will be "so last year". I also know that I love blue. Any shade of it---and Turquoise is probably my favorite shade and that's what makes me want to smack it up there on a white wall. Design trends are a fun way to update your home, but when it really comes down to it you have to live with what you love!
