new pillows and some big news!

I've been holding off on buying more things for our apartment because we haven't been sure if we're staying here or if we would be able to find a home to buy. I've been itching for a little update to our living room, so I've decided on these leopard velvet and blue ikat pillows from Arianna Belle, and the gold scallop pillow from Caitlin Wilson Textiles since they can come with us wherever we end up.

Now for the big news: This weekend we went and looked at houses with our realtor. On Sunday we found one we liked and decided to put an offer in not expecting much since anything semi-decent gets snapped up within a day or two. We put our offer in Monday, they accepted Tuesday, and as of last night we officially have a contract! Everything is still super new and up in the air until the inspection passes. In the next week or so we should be in the clear, and I'll share a little more about our new home (you can see some ideas I've started pinning here). It all happened so fast and was so much easier than I ever expected. I'm nervous to have the responsibility of owning a home, but I'm also crazy excited that I finally get to make a space 100% ours!

on my rader: neutral interiors

We all know I love a good pop of color, but right now I'm being drawn to simple, neutral interiors. Here are some of my favorites:

As soon as I think I'm finished decorating my home I always seem to find a new style to love and want to start over completely with my decor. For the sake of my marriage, I won't be doing anything drastic :) I still love color, but I'm dying to design someone's home in this color scheme!

perfect office space

When I saw this picture I couldn't believe it. It is exactly what I've been imagining for my office area. I really want a long desk that can accommodate our computer and still has space for me to set up my sewing machine. I've also had my eye on this exact drawer unit that I want to place in between the two areas.
Seriously, someone out there was reading my mind. After seeing this picture I'm even more determined to make this happen as soon as possible.
