I cannot believe this Wednesday is halfway over. Last night Brad didn’t have class so the two of us enjoyed a homecooked meal together. We made pork chops, baked potatoes, and I made fried cinnamon apples for the first time. They were delicious. I used this recipe. After we ate, we watched some more episodes of Criminal Minds like we do every night. We are halfway through season 5, so we are about halfway done overall. We also made sure to stop Criminal Minds in time for Agents of SHIELD. Throughout the evening, I picked up our apartment and did all of that fun stuff.
Over the last couple days my Pinterest boards have been growing at a rapid pace. Last week, Brad & I went apartment hunting. I love the thrill of searching for a new place to call home. Right now, Brad is driving an hour to work and an hour home. The place we have fallen in love with is only 10 minutes away from his work. It is going to be so nice to have dinner together and at a decent hour. Since I am in apartment heaven, I have been seeking some pinspiration. The apartment we currently live in, is a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom and 600 square feet. The new apartment is 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, and 1,000 square feet. It’s like twice the size and I need furniture to fill the place.
The master bedroom has an attached bathroom and giant walk-in closet. We currently have Brad’s camo bedding and I am ready for something new. I want our master to feel relaxing and calming. It is a place to sleep and feel comfortable; not a second living room. Here are some pins of my master bedroom inspiration:
Here is the bedding that I found and just bought:
For the living room, I want to do a warm and rustic feel. The color scheme will be a mixture of earthy tones- browns, sage green, rust orange, deep reds, and a golden yellow. I’m not sure if I will use all of these colors but I love how well they go together. Here is my Pinspiration of my living room:
The spare bedroom at our new place will be a multipurpose room. Since I’ll be farther from my work, the company I work for has agreed to let me work remotely unless there are mandatory meetings I have to attend. This bedroom will be used as my office as well as a guest bedroom. brad has agreed to let me have this room as “my” room since I will be spending most of my time in here. I am choosing more of a feminine color scheme. I want to find a white desk and use pink, pale yellow, and aqua as my colors. We are also getting my twin bed that I had when I was a child for the seating. I thought this would be more comfortable than a futon and I wouldn’t have to go out and buy a futon since we already have this bed in my parents’ basement. This is what I have in mind:
I love all of this. The countdown is on until I can start buying more.
What do you think of these pins?
Do you ever plan out your home?
