Hi! We’re back from our quick trip to our townhouse in the DC ‘burbs (I love saying that because I never thought we would live in the suburbs) and just in time for a Boston blizzard! I’m trying to not feel disappointed that we’re back in this lovely city, but you guys, I have six boxes of unopened Pampered Chef goodies from our bridal shower and wedding — and Chanel Chance perfume in another container. I’ve been dousing my body with DKNY Be Delicious for the last 2 1/2 years and although it’s a pleasant scent, it doesn’t smell like me, if that makes any sense. It’s like I’m finding myself once again because of this storage unit (cue cheesy pop song and dance party).
We were able to paint our living room gorgeous grey and all of the walls of our kitchen are almost mint-colored which makes me really giddy, and since we’ll soon be consumed with decorating the entire place, I’m starting a new post series called “project home”. I hope to share our renovation ideas, DIY projects, and decor purchases every Friday so you get an idea of what we enjoy. Speaking of this blog…
I’m trying not to worry about it, but I’ve noticed that I’m at a weird transition point with my website. I still plan on sharing our travels and ex-expatness, but I have a feeling this space will turn into more of a true lifestyle blog in the coming months. What does that mean? I’m not sure (what is a lifestyle blog anyway?), but I hope you’ll stick with me. And hey, for those of you wanting more wanderlust in your life, there’s always a possibility that we’ll take another assignment abroad. This makes me happy because the unknown can be both annoying and exciting.
And now for some indoor rugs I’m loving:
1. Ikea | 2. West Elm | 3. World Market | 4. Wayfair | 5. West Elm
The first thing you should know about these rugs is that I own three of them. I keep telling Brandon that rugs make a room and tie everything together, and then I buy another one. It’s a problem. I’ve always been drawn to colors, textures and patterns that remind me of our travels, so I have 2, 4, and 5 for our living room, dining room, and the hall area. I will end up spending more money on rugs than furniture and I’m totally okay with that. I also want a faux fur rug to layer in our living room but I’ll hold off for now.
Do you like indoor rugs? Which one is your favorite?
