apartment in Atlanta, Jon and I moved into a two-story condo on the East
side. The neighborhood was built in the 70's and has mostly older
residents, which Jon and I love. It's a quiet and peaceful place to
live. Our favorite parts about the condo are the windows, huge amount of
storage and the massive walk-in closet in the Master. This is our 3-5
year home, and we love it. Moving in, I decided to take a "one room at a
time" approach to my decorating. In the apartment before our condo, I
found myself piddling in several rooms at a time and never really
feeling like I completed anything. In order to achieve the decorations I
really loved, take my time and focus, we decided that decorating one
room completely and then moving onto the next would be our most
room, mainly because we had absolutely no dining room furniture to start
with and also because we love hosting get-togethers for our family and
friends. Our community is an important part of our lives, and we wanted
to create a space that could easily host those dear to us. I began a
series on my blog called 'Project Condo' which chronicles my progress, ideas and inspiration boards."
"One of my favorite things in this space is my 'Places in America'
print and scrap wood frame. My father-in-law and I made this frame
together, and I love how much of a statement piece it is. We signed the
back of the frame together, and it was so special working on a project
and learning about wood working. I also love the fact that Jon and I are
able to start recording the places we've been with our pins that came
with the artwork."
because it truly is a mashup of my taste and my husbands taste. We also
wanted to create a space that would be kitty friendly and future
children friendly, so we came across a lot of challenges. Taking our
time and approaching it one piece at a time made for a space we truly
love, feel at home in and enjoy eating our meal together in."
