A Beautiful Beginning!

Today is a beautiful beginning to a new week!
We heard back from the sellers after putting a bid on our very first home and...
I'm so excited, because I have been dying for our 1st home! I am so TIRED of renting! Now I can go as crazy as my heart desires with decorating!

The photos on this board are laid out similar to the house we are getting. Each photo represents the style I want to achieve for that room. I'll start at top left:

Master Bath: Bamboo contemporary
Master Bedroom: Bamboo/Indonesian Inspired
Nursery: Cinderella/French Provincial (Blue/Champagne Gold)
Guest Bedroom: Old Hollywood Glam (Purple/Silver)
Living Room: White/Rustic Elements (Little more tropical flair than this photo)
Entry: Undecided
Kitchen: White Traditional with green accents
Dining: West Indies Tropical Dining
Study: Global - A mix of West Indies/British India Decor

Do you think a home's style should flow throughout the entire house, or do you like a new surprise in each room? I'm concerned about the Purple Glam room being to far off from everything else. Maybe I should go with something more natural in the guest bedroom. What are your thoughts?


  1. I like having different room themes/color schemes. I say keep the purple room! I love your inspiration board! Can't wait till we can see progress pics of the real thing!

  2. Hi Elle, just wanted to stop by and say thanks for your lovely comment on my blog.

    Congratulations on the house! The best thing about a new house is being able to shop for fabulous new home accessories : )

  3. How exciting!! I am so happy for you! I can't wait til we buy our first place - 6 years of military housing and then more renting sucks!!! :-) Sally x

  4. P.S. I also love your inpsiration board!!

  5. Thanks Sally! I can only imagine how hard it must be to live in military housing for so long! I've rented for the last 10 years of my life! So over it!
