There’s a chance that if you’re reading this, you got here from Apartment Therapy…because my dining room is featured there today!

I’ve been feeling like garbage for 4 days now (a fun respiratory virus has been going around) and this was a better pick-me-up than any Quil (Day or Ny) or hot toddy. I have been reading AT for so many years, I can’t quite wrap my head around my little house being up on that front page. It all feels like a beautiful, cough-syrup-induced dream.

If you’re new around here, please look around! It’s been a bit since I posted, what with the holidays and all, but that’ll be changing—I’ve signed up for the January Cure (starting today!) and plan to blog milestones throughout the process. The room I’ll be focusing on the most is our much-neglected guest bedroom. I’m about to do a post explaining all my grandiose ideas, plus showing you what it looks like now, but since it’s a special occasion I’ll show you the general idea up front:


But what does it all meeeeean?! I’ll explain the whole setup soon. I also have some master bedroom stuff to talk about, so hold tight and expect some new photos in the next couple days!

Tall, somewhat-awkward twentysomething design addict exhibits magpie-like hoarding tendencies and an uncanny ability to say precisely the wrong thing in uncomfortable situations. Enjoys laziness, food, animals that aren’t food, rearranging furniture while husband is out of the house/sleeping, attempting to garden for about 6 weeks at the beginning of every summer, purchasing own weight in design magazines, revamping Goodwill clothes/furniture, the French word for “grapefruit,” appallingly bad movies, indie music, CB2, spelling n’ grammar, books where people fall in love and then something terrible happens and it looks like they won’t ever see each other again but then wait! everything turns out okay, Pepsi One, watching other people play interesting video games, Scrabble, midnight baking, fall, canceled television shows (see: Arrested Development, Pushing Daisies), DIY blogs, Harry Potter, rainy days in the summer, trenchcoats, every color except Pepto-Bismol pink, vintage chairs, Wikipedia-hopping.
