In the meantime, Serena and Lily is having 20% off site wide! So, if you love this table as much as I do, today is the perfect time to splurge!Read more
I have been on a major interiors kick lately and I am wanting to re-do our entire house. While I would actually love to do it right this second, I am waiting until we buy our first house to make some real design decisions. There would be nothing worse than investing in furniture to fit this home and then the pieces wouldn’t work in the home we purchase in the next year or so. However, there is one purchase I think that makes sense right now…
I had been on the hunt for the perfect bar cart for years now. I wanted an acrylic one to match our ghost chairs at our kitchen table. When I was ready to pull the trigger last year, the acrylic bar cart was sold out EVERYWHERE. I searched high and low for the affordable bar cart (I had a hard time spending $800+ on a decor item) but I can out empty handed. When Hayneedle.com reached out to pick out a piece from their collection, I immediately searched their extensive bar cart selection. To my surprise, I found the one I had been searching for for the last year.
There are many theories on why paper is the traditional gift for a couples’ first anniversary. One theory being that paper is a blank slate, so you can write your story together. Another being that paper symbolizes the future you can write together. When I was thinking of a first wedding anniversary gift for Patrick, I had the perfect one for the two of us.
Home updates, you ask?
Many of you have been emailing and asking why I haven’t posted pictures of our new house in Dallas yet. To be honest, its not finished and not really a work in progress either. You see, when we moved to Dallas we rented a house because of the quickness of our move. Don’t get me wrong I actually love renting, I love our house and the neighborhood we live in but honestly I have zero motivation when it comes to buying or designing any pieces for this place. With the idea of buying our first home in the back of my mind, I decided I would rather save my money than fill this space with pieces that fit right now. Thankfully, all of our furniture from our Kansas City abode (see our home tour here) fit perfectly into the new space; that is with the exception of our extremely tiny closet we now share. Let’s just say that is not the only thing I miss from that awesome house.
It’s been a little less than a year since we moved down to Dallas and of course I am starting to get the itch to change things up a bit, but a little birdy keeps telling me just to wait a little longer. Instead of buying big pieces that might not make sense in our next house, I decided to switch up the sofa pillows, add some lamps, and swap out our old bedding for a new linen duvet (thanks to Patrick’s siblings for the wedding gift!).So hold tight because it’s just a matter of time before I start talking interiors again :)

How beautiful is this home?? It is Jen’s home, the author of Made By Girl. The house is to. die. for. And the art is what lead me to her home tour when I realized she is an artist and graphic designer with a company called Coco & Hearts. I really love the dot paiting in the living room..maybe some day!
