making a house a home

house to home

slowly but surely changes have been happening around my (OUR) apartment. his cologne is mixed in with my perfume, our office is close to being complete and new photos have been framed in our bedroom. in the coming months, we’ll purchase new dining chairs, our king bed will arrive and my bf and his dad will construct a headboard. i can’t wait to get everything perfected. all of that aside, him being here, and decorating the place together, makes my apartment feel more like a home, and that’s what is most important.

  1. You’re lucky to have a boyfriend with similar home tatses as your own. I’m finding it difficult to mix vintage teapots and upcycled furniture with a 50″ flatscreen and too many video game figures!

    • hey donna! no kidding… it’s not to say that we haven’t had our disagreements about decor, but he’s happy to have half the office for his “boy stuff”… and so am i, haha. x
