Anatomy of a Room

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Moving from a larger home in Dallas to a much smaller one here in Atlanta forced me to do something I was longing to do, simplify! I had no choice but to clean out the excess and leave a good amount of our belongings behind. Now we are surrounded by things that we need and love and nothing else. My style of decorating is always evolving, but what I have found to be constant is my appreciation of a good mix of colors, textures, and materials. Also, I love an object with a good story behind it!

So..... I thought it would be fun to do a little house tour series! After six months of living in "The White House," as my two year old refers to it, things are starting to feel like home. There is still plenty of decorating and projects to be done, all of which I plan to share. Until then, here are some pictures of what has already been accomplished.

We will begin with...... my living room, enjoy!
