So we did the house inspection on the new place today....it didn't go quite as I had hoped. You know when you build something up in your head and then life can never measure up? Yup - that's what happened. The house is not quite as 'done' as we had thought and there are some safety issues that will need to be taken care of ASAP. All of these old houses have their issues, it goes with the territory, but I was disappointed that the current owners had not fixed some of the items. But nuff said. We are still really lucky and this way we will feel like we've added our custom 'marshall' stamp to the place.
In the meantime, I've been seeing all these gorgeous afghan rugs with pinks in them and gold accents and was inspired to pull together the following idea board:
White light, 1,935 CAD / Oil rubbed bronze fixture, 95 CAD / Hand woven area rug, 555 CAD / Serena Lily distressed home decor, 435 CAD / Laura Ashley sun burst mirror, 135 CAD / Chocolate brown throw pillow, 77 CAD / Striped window treatment, 47 CAD / West Elm throw pillow, 22 CAD / Bensen handmade furniture, 3,765 CAD / Euro furniture, 1,250 CAD / Storage coffee table, 830 CAD / Cyan Design accent table, 675 CAD
I would die for this room!
I leave you today with this amusing thought:
Thanks for stopping by!
