Since I am still convinced that the only person that reads my blog is my mom, I was shocked and VERY pleasantly surprised to receive so many emails from readers asking me to share the trials and tribulations of becoming a homeowner and, most importantly, all the details on the whole decorating thing. I must confess that decorating scares the bejeesus (not even sure how to spell that word but have always wanted to use it) out of me. Outfits, makeup- easy and fun. But give me a three dimensional space and tell me things have to fit, coordinate (to an extent) AND be logistically livable? Panic ensues.
Full disclosure- I hired an interior designer to help me through this whole process. Going from 3 rooms to like 30 rooms (well not quite, but feels that way) is a major jump, and one that I had no idea how to even begin to make. And since we are building our house- when we bought it it was about 60% done, so we have the exciting (and overwhelming) opportunity to customize every last detail- there really are so many more decisions to be made then I ever imagined possible.
Since there isn't much good TV on in the summer, my weeknights have become all about stalking design sites and Pinterest-ing like a crazy person. One of the first orders of business? Sconces. Who knew houses needed SO MANY sconces?
