In a little over a month I will be moving out for the first time! I guess it’s not technically the first time, because I moved to Muenster for my first year of university and I moved to Halifax for summer 2012 - but this will be the first time that doesn’t have an end date. My first legit moving out. It’s pretty exciting! This certainly could have come much earlier, but there were many reasons why I chose to wait and save and spend a bit more time at home.
As I prepare to move I have to hold myself back from going crazy purchasing items for my new home. I’ll be sharing with two other women in their early twenties, and none of us have anything other than what goes in our bedrooms, the rest of our place is completely unfurnished and it is both exciting and daunting to think about.
What’s nice is we don’t have any large pieces of furniture that we need to think about or work around when decorating, so we can really go any route. This is a rental, so we won’t be able to change anything about the paint (our landlord is taking the month of June to freshen up the place - but it is pretty much perfect already as is!), but it’s going to be a light tan, so that’s about as neutral as it goes.
I have a few ideas that I’ll share as time goes on, but I would love to hear some suggestions. Our living room and dining room are one long room, so we have a nice open concept, and there is room for a substantial dining set along with a full living room set. Any suggestions for colours, themes, textures, or perfect pieces that are on your wishlist? Please share!
