House Design

Since I get a pretty clean slate at the new house, I am mixing some existing furniture with new to create a bit of an eclectic look.

I took my hand at some photoshop storyboards - but I'm pretty bad at it.

Living Room:

The sofa I found at Gallery Furniture on Westheimer and it's the exact clean look I was going for. Lee has a brown leather chair and ottoman so I wanted to lighten things up and thrown in an upholstered chair (Ballarddesigns.com) with our existing dark wood console (similar to the one shown). Add a charcoal rug to anchor the space and it's fresh and clean.

Den:
Kid-friendly slipcovered sofa from World Market with a cute chair (Target!!) and a white console from Nadeau in Rice Village. This room is almost all windows and will be Logan's toy area.

Master Bedroom:

We are putting our bed and nightstands (you can see them on the Our Home section of the blog) in the guest room, but keeping our dresser - which is dark wood. I am ordering an upholstered headboard and pairing it with charcoal bedding, emerald accents, and a bench at the end of the bed rather than footboard. Our bed will face 3 full height windows looking out onto the pool so I wanted to bring some of that beach feel into our new oasis. (We have our OWN BATHROOM people!)

Guest Bed:
Best friends navy and orange will brighten up the dark bed and nightstands along with a white console to give guests a little storage and place to store luggage.

That's it for now. I can't wait to move in 3 weeks and take photos to see how close my vision came to reality. I have a list as long as my arm of things to do (appliances, pool fence, utilities, etc) and I can see why we aren't the type of people to move very often!

I love the navy and orange combo. We will be rearranging things, bed transition and all that jazz in a month or two, and I think new sheets/covers are in order!
