p_P219_sroom_WE06B090D_SU06_060408001444_InRoom.jpgYes friends, it’s true. After living in the Scott St Apt with PRD for a good 7 months, I’ve finally gotten up off the couch and been truly bitten by the decorating bug.

Sources of inspiration:

  • Cost Plus World Market — I happened to stop in on my lunch break on Friday, and was stoked to find that Cost Plus was having a huge sale. Check out their online sale.
  • Sweet Chandelier — I got a great pendant lamp for Christmas that echoes the feeling of a chandelier (something I’ve been wanting for a long while now).
  • Quilt — When I was in the hospital in December, my mom made me this awesome flannel quilt to wrap up in.

Pretty much a bachelor’s haven, right? My real obstacle in coming up with a concept for our living room was that I didn’t want to strip it of its masculinity. After all, two of us live here, and only one of us is female.

I know the pieces I’ve picked look girly, but stay tuned for the results of the makeover to see how they get incorporated into the final “look”.
