Home On The Range...

It's official, actually its more than official!! i have keys to prove it.. we are now home owners!!! this may excuse my lack of blogging this week i have been attempting to choose paint colours, cleaning, cleaning...and more cleaning! To tell the truth i never thought id be a home owner, and i was pretty alright with that i was more motivated to spend time and money on my online shop and houses would come later, but since i met an amazing man...things change! (actually a lot has changed)

Now comes the biggest challenge...(which also happened when buying the house) compromising on our different styles and tastes. I love a lot of different vintage pieces with bright colours and a bit of shabby chic/librarian! Z on the other hand likes metallic things with dark colours and weird 90's curtains! Its going to be a challenge!! im also a little too girly so making it unisex liveable is on my list! do any of you have any tips i can use?? i need all the help i can get. Im excited to share the decorating process with you all!!

So this weekend is going to be spent painting and packing..whew..im already tired just thinking about it!

Your house looks so perfect! Congrats! I'm going to be moving soon too, but I'm lucky that my boyfriend is so laid back about decoration (as long as I dont go decorating in bright pink everywhere hah) but I think I'm just going for neutral colours anyway to keep it pretty simple and to both our tastes :)

congrats girl! i'm so happy for you both!
i know what you mean. compromising on two different styles is always a big challenge. maybe you're lucky and Z isn't working in architecture or something creative. that will make it easier for you to carry your way of style into the house. ;))))
i can't wait to start the next challenge...
