- Wedding: December 2013
Now that our wedding is over, I feel like I’m spending all the time/money I have back again into making our apartment a home…searching Pinterest/Apartment Therapy/blogs for home tours and inspiration, gradually buying furniture, and decorating our apartment. We didn’t live together before we were married and neither of us had a lot of furniture so we’re pretty much starting from scratch. My new years resolution is to have our apartment finished by the end of the year. How long did it take you to transform your house into a home? Did you have a certain order of buying furniture? I only want to buy pieces we adore, even if they are pricey, so that means waiting until we find the right furniture instead of getting everything from Ikea (although we love our kitchen table and bed from there!). Also, did buying a house/having kids affect your furniture/style choices? We cannot wait to have children, but do not feel ready just yet so I struggle with wanting to finish making a home before we think about children, but also wondering if we’ll have to completely start over when we eventually move into a house and make our space baby-friendly. It seems like most of my friends don’t worry about creating a stylish apartment because they’re trying to buy a house or they have babies and build they’re home around their lifestyle. I’d love to hear your experiences!
