House Decor

Having a new house is exciting. Decorating a new house is exciting and daunting, if you're a girl, boys, however, don't seem to be affected by this. When you move from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 2300 square foot house, you run out of furniture and decor very quickly. And I unfortunately have a phobia of empty walls. I'm finding this to be an expensive phobia.

My boss, wise as she is, gave me some good advice about buying wall art. "Buy what you like, THEN figure out where you're going to put it. You'll eventually find you've covered your house in pieces you love without ever really planning it." Granted she has a collection of real art and I have a hodge podge of art and little things I made myself, but the idea is still the same.

One thing that I like that will eventually end up in my house, is from this site:

I love these!! And I can pick any color to match any room and they're really reasonably priced. I'm super excited. I've decided I want to get the "Oh Happy Day" poster. I have mixed feelings on the cutesy boards/decals that people get for their wedding date. You know, the "Established on Jan 1, 2010" in pretty letters over their last name. I like the concept but felt like it was starting to get cliche and I hate cliche. Another [expensive] phobia of mine. But I love the poster on this site. So be looking for it on my wall in the near future, or at least propped up against a potential wall until I decide where it should go....


  1. Oh man, I really wish I had studied graphic design. I guess it gives me a good hobby though. It's a great poster, and I'm excited for you too.

  2. I too hate cliche.
    PS. People still comment on the wall art you did at Copper Mill. They love it.

  3. I can't wait to have the daunting task of decorating my own home :-) ps-love your new blog decour as well!
