No but seriously, when I was thinking about how I wanted my house to feel and look, I found a bunch of inspiration online obvi, but I knew I definitely wanted a super feminine, yet sophisticated space. This is my first house, and it is going to be my late (cough cough) twenties girlie heaven. 😉
Everything is TOTALLY still a work in progress, I have some chairs and some lighting fixtures I cannot stand, but we are getting there one piece of pretty at a time.
This is the kitchen I wanted, and very very similar to the kitchen I got. Gas stove and all. Check. And I wanted my living room to be neutral grey’s and blacks, with pops of purple and silver girly things. Check check.
Every feminine space needs a mirrored piece of furniture of sorts right? Right. So Yesterday I scoured Craigs List and found this little beauty.
I was emailing with the seller and she goes “wait a minute, you are PinkLouLou?! I read your blog!” Haha. I died laughing, it was so sweet, and I thought YES this table is mine. Well turns out someone snagged said table before me. But the seller was so sweet. (hey girl!) But I did find it on Overstock.com here 😉
I also DESPISE the lighting fixtures over my bar/island thingy in the kitchen. Needless to say they are not the ones I thought were going in there lol. Easy fix though in all honesty.
I think I have decided on these for the dining area and above the bar. Simple and clean with a touch of sparkle. And reasonably priced as well, thanks Overstock!
I also am in the market for a new couch. The one I have in the living room now works fine, it is one from my parents house and very nice, but it is just not exactly what I want for in there. I want something softer and more inviting. Add it to the list, lol.
It appears this home decorating thing is going to be a forever ongoing process 😉
