Moving On Up


I move downtown to Chicago and leave the life of suburbia in less than a week. That translates to next Saturday. To say I am becoming a tad overwhelmed is slightly exaggerated. I have bought my bedding and hope it translates to my muse: these photos.

I am still in need of little things and need to remind myself some of the most important design elements cannot be added until a space is lived in. Otherwise how do you know what works best?

ie. area rug, wall art, window treatments for a high rise bay window.

Bottom line: I am so ridiculously excited but also in desperate need of some relaxing design mode. I’m thinking of  a wine and painting night this week to create some perfect canvases and unwind in the process.

I can’t wait for my move, it will mean more time for me which translates more time for blogging. It  will mean the removal of a 3 hour round trip commute (due to lovely city traf)

Without further adieu, meet my inspiration:

  1. ahhh i can't wait to see your move unravel. i'm moving to chicago in june!

  2. Congrat's! So exciting...I can't imagine having a commute that long...just think of all the things you'll be able to do with that extra 3 hours - like sleep. :)
