You might have seen my Instagram, but we found a new place! I have to admit, last week was a stressful one between finding a new home and trying to finish the last details of my name change — seriously, I never would have guessed how frustrating this process could be, but I digress! Anyway, we went and saw a condo last Tuesday that was located about one block from we currently live in a great building. The only hitch? There were no pictures of the unit online and it had been on the market since January. I browsed other units in the building — all which looked updated and beautiful and simply hoped that this unit would be similar, but deep down I had a fear that there was going to be something so bizarre about it. Thankfully that wasn’t the case! After poking around the place for 20 minutes, we’d made up our mind and by the end of the day, we had a new place to live!
One of my favorite things about moving to a new place is decorating. While we’re not looking to buy any new pieces, I love rearranging what we currently have and seeing if I can move things around to give them a fresh feel. I’m already looking forward to the different layout of the place and the challenge it will present for decorating. One thing that’s been on my mind for months is where to hang big pieces of art and where to hang a gallery wall. So naturally, I’ve been collecting inspiration.
I absolutely adore both big pieces that stand alone as well as well-curated galley walls and we’ll definitely have both in our house, but deciding on where they should go is the hard part. We currently have a gallery wall in our bedroom and while I love the pieces that are in it, I feel that it makes our bedroom look too busy and less peaceful. I’m thinking I’ll save the gallery wall for the entryway or even my desk area where there’s less personal stuff sitting around. What do you think? Any favorites from above?
P.S. I’m too excited to wait, so be on the lookout for a little sneak peek of our place on Instagram!
