Our Home: A Work in Progress

I've been holding off on posting this because we're not done furnishing our new house. Then reality set in and it occurred to me that I'll probably never really be "done". The other night we ordered the clock and the bookshelves (that I've been eyeing for months now) and I realized I've reached a point that's finally worth sharing with you all! After apartment dwelling for five years, it's been such an amazing feeling to have our own space that we can make completely OURS! It's a total work in progress, we have a long way to go. Here's are some of our newest additions to "Casa de Sko"!
New Home

The table and rug (which is 5x7) fit beautifully in our entryway! In my opinion, the three blue upholstered stools were a beautiful addition to our bar height counters. And that media console took me FOREVER to decide on, but I'm glad I took my time because it's perfect. Little fingers have a way of making their way into the slats but at least they are wide enough that we don't have issues using our remotes for all of our components. The clock will take the place of the giant burlap wreath I have above our TV, hopefully it will look as good as I'm imagining it in my head. After some convincing, we ordered two shelving units for either side of our sofa - I don't handle asymmetrical well! They will be used mainly for toy storage...or an attempt at toy storage. I'm on the lookout for the perfect bins/baskets. 

I'm not just making a purchase to fill a space like I've done in the past. My mission has been to make sure we absolutely LOVE it before we buy it. It's been fun browsing the stores and scouring the internet for all of these items. Granted, most of these are from Target - but I really do check other places first. Target just has most of what I want and as a bonus...happens to be super affordable!

Bit by bit as we fill our house, it's all coming together. I have no clue what our style actually is. Is warm and cozy a thing? An interior designer I am definitely not...but I love the direction we're heading in! Next I'll focus on more of the details like artwork. Our walls are still pretty bare! We're getting there though!

I'll share photos soon, I promise!

  1. Isn't it great when you can find the perfect things at places like Target and actually afford them?! :) I love your design style so much, especially those chairs and that clock!
