A Girly Girl

I am have the toughest time trying to decide how to decorate the new house. For a while it was full speed ahead. Wall color, furniture, whatever, I knew exactly what I wanted. Now that I am getting into the more specific design elements like artwork, window treatments, room accents, I can’t seem to find my rhythm.  Every place i’ve lived has be decorated differently. One place I painted the walls a vibrant green and then painted abstract cherry blossom trees in black and white. Another was all stormy grays and blues with Degas and Monet framed posters. But this house, my house is tripping me up.  I know at least part of the decorating block is because I really want to make sure that whatever I end up choosing, Andy likes it too.

So for now our walls are bare and shelves empty.  And I flip through magazines and online archives searching for inspiration. Besides, I love getting an inside peak of people’s homes. You can tell a lot about someone based on how they decorate their living space. The things they display, colors they choose and trinkets they’ve collected. Haleigh, of Making Magique has a gorgeous apartment with pastels, gold accents and table top collections of pretty bits and baubs that she has collected over the years. Every time she posts new pictures, all I can think is, “Wow, this looks so much like a modern version of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Anotoinette.” Were I unwed, this apartment would be mine, oh yes, it would be mine. Because it’s pretty.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
