My Home Decor
When Mike and I started dating Mike had his own house. It was nicely decorated, but lacked a feminine touch. When I moved in he was kind enough to let me redecorate some things. We made compromises. When we finished the basement we moved the living room furniture into the basement and I painted the living room (with the exception of painting the trim, per Mike’s request) and got new furniture. I also got complete control of the basement bathroom. When I moved into the house there were a few things missing, besides a feminine touch. A bathtub, a walk in closet, and a dining room. I have my bathtub, now I am just working on the other two! As you can see the living room and the bathroom both have that feminine touch. The other rooms consist of hand-me down furniture and are still works in progress.
The guitar room has remained completely intact since I moved in the only addition I have made was the rug and now we are looking to add a dining room table. When I first moved in I agreed with Mike that we did not need a dining room table, but after entertaining a few times on the counter we realized we could use one! That’s why I added one to my Christmas Wish list.
It’s been fun to compromise and combine our aesthetics. I would say the perfect way to describe our combined taste it would be Restoration Hardware. If I could decorate our entire house in restoration hardware I would! Mike likes gears, antlers, and wood grain and I like beige, French country, and Edison bulbs. It’s the perfect combination, and the inspiration for our interior décor.
An inexpensive desk and antique mirror can make for a great make shift vanity. I like to sit when I get ready!
