With my impending move to San Francisco just two months away, I'm already knee deep in decorating ideas for my new place! One of the joys (amidst the headaches) of moving is the opportunity to start fresh with a blank canvas. I've decided to leave all my furniture behind in Chicago and take with me nothing more than my clothes and a few special pieces. That's just the way I am...a palate cleanse kinda girl.
My aesthetic is decidedly clean, calming, and clutter-free, so I'll be sticking to that point of view for sure. But in the new place, I want to glam it up a bit with shiny surface, gilt accents, and luxurious fabrics.
Though I absolutely love my current home, which you can see staring on page 166 in Rue Magazine, I'm a little fatigued on the earthly, organic undertones.
So I've decided the easiest way to remedy that is sticking to a no wood furniture rule in the new place! It's time to retire (just for a while) the warmth of this element in favor of cooler surface like lucite, mirrors, and marble.
Knowing me, I'll probably stick to my love of all things white and create a space similar to this one. I love how the designer has punctuated the room with girly pinks, paired with masculine brown leather and oversized artwork!
And of course, of paramount importance will be my bedroom. I've decide I want to feel like a queen every night as I lay my head down to rest, so you can bet it will be over the top luxe - I'm thinking of a curtained four-post bed with tufted headboard and lots and lots of pillows!
On a more serious note, I just wanted to let you know how much all your comments regarding my move touched me. I read each and every one and was so utterly moved by your support, your well wishes, your advice, and your friendship. You truly are the best readers a girl could ever ask for!
