As I unpack little by little, I can't help but picture how I'm going to decorate everything. Its a much smaller canvas than I had to work with in our townhome, but that's completely ok with me since I get to look at such a beautiful view every day! Plus it has a deck that runs the full length of the house. Jess already has visions of hanging a hammock caddy-cornered on one end, and I want a table and chairs so we can eat outside! And the beautiful thing is, there's room for both, and then some!

Its also going to be a challenge in that its so small, I want to utilize every bit of storage space as effectively as possible. So I'm already looking at some options to help with that as well.
There are a few other things I already know I want. A yellow shower curtain, for example, which is something I had been thinking about in our last place, and then I got here and found beautiful, plush yellow towels, and I was sold! I haven't found one I like for the space yet though, but I will. (Yes, it does have a shower curtain already, but its just clear, and I want to add our own style to the space!)
Another thing is a new comforter for our bed. Its something I've wanted for a while (I blogged about one I loved here). The sheets that were provided are a pretty pretty blue, and although they are full sheets for the full bed which we had them replace with our queen, we borrowed a couple of the pillowcases, and they look amazing with our red sheets. So much so that I started looking for a blue and red comforter to pull it all in. I fell in love with this one from Target:

It has blue and red, plus a little bit of teal and yellow and a few other colors. I'm even contemplating bringing in Sarah (who is, atm, homeless), if I can figure out how to make it work.
I'm also working on getting Feature Friday started back up, so hopefully I will have that back up and running by this Friday!
