I am not sure if it is because we are coming up on the one year anniversary of taking our house off the market, or if it is because things are starting to look so lovely on the outside, or if I have just gotten used to the idea, but lately I have a renewed hope and energy for our life on Ridge Road. I am once again excited by the idea of improving our little house and Sweet Man and I stay up late planning kitchen renovations and weekends are often spent working in the gardens or tackling a small decorating project or two. I have plans to show you all of our changes and updates properly, but July and early August are always so busy around here with the start of school and both the boys birthdays, that I am doing good just to have clean underwear for everyone.
So a few pictures taken on the fly with my phone will have to suffice for now.
Inspired by our trip to Eureka Springs, I have hung white curtains in our bedroom. They are currently mismatched, as I just used whatever bits I had stuffed in the fabric closet. But I have figured out what kind of white fabric looks best in the room and now know what I am looking for. A thin white cotton linen blend or white seersucker are the best. Our last curtains were very heavy, and while they were probably a little more “energy” efficient they left our room dark and cave-like. I love how happy and cheerful the room feels now.
There are other changes happening in our bedroom-slowly but surely- and I am hoping to have a complete room tour in a few weeks. Maybe.
