The Best Thing About a New Home

One thing I’ve been looking forward to since childhood is having a home of my own to decorate.  In high school, my mom and I would watch Trading Spaces together everyday after school.  My parents had just bought a new house and I really enjoyed helping my mom revamp the dated ranch into a cozy home that reflects my family’s style. And now that Jason and I have moved into a new condo, I finally have the chance to create a home that is truly and uniquely ours.   I’m slightly limited because we’ve chosen to rent rather than buy for the time being, but that won’t stand between me and a place that feels like home.

We have yet to see how the furniture we have looks in our new condo, but many of our pieces are versatile and I look forward to using my creativity to make the most out of each and every square foot. Additionally, I’ve set a goal for myself.  I want this home to be less contemporary and more eclectic than our last one.

Here are some rooms I’ve saved on Pinterest for inspiration.

I’ll post pictures when I’m done!

    I LOVE decorating! Trading Spaces was one of the best shows. I used to never change the channel from HGTV. The only problem I have come across from trying to decorate in a rented space is making it look good without painting the walls. A little color on the walls immediately changes the whole room. Eclectic will look amazing in your new place. For some more ideas, you can go to Rate My Space on & search for NYC apartment. A lot of New Yorkers have eclectic designs. Make sure to take before and after pics!

    I think your Trading Spaces shirt, autographed by Genevieve Gorder, is still around here somewhere!
