Prairie Days Design

loving your home one prairie day at a time.

It has officially been two weeks and two days since we moved in! WOW! The difference between having a five bedroom, 2 bath house and a one bedroom condo.. well you can likely guess! We have all the boxes unpacked, but that is about all that we have done. We have talked over a LOT of ideas... but right now, until the wedding is over, that's all they are going to be! After reading all the blogs that I do, especially Young House Love, I know that I need to live in this house for awhile and learn how we use it before we make any big changes... like in the kitchen! Everything is very functional, but it's definitely not our taste! And I plan on taking this house on, room by room so I/we don't get too overwhelmed! Over the next couple of weeks, I plan on showing you what I have in mind for most of the rooms... some are still LARGELY up in the air! And a couple I know will be a LOT of work, but some just need a couple coats of paint! First I will start with our bedroom...

As you can see, it's a blank slate right now, which is super nice... Makes the design process just that much easier! It has a lot of great features too, like that bay window? Oh and did I mention that it looks out onto a field? That's right, no neighbors! I want to make it the perfect spot to sit and read on those cold winter mornings! Hell, any morning for that matter!

Anyway, here is where it gets really fun...

Now let's dive right in! I am leaning towards a dark slate for the back wall, and a shade of white for the trim. Actually, this room was my inspiration for everything... I can never get it out of my head!

I'd really like our room to be a serene, clean space, where we can go to relax and unwind... the less clutter the better! We are going to leave the dresser at the end of the bed, and I don't think I am going to touch it... ok, well maybe some new hardware. We also want to change out the GIANT mirrors... sidenote: there are a million mirrors in this house. Good news? I think only the ones in the bar are actually glued to the wall... ugh.

Steve will eventually make us some sliding barn doors for the closet, not only will this look better, it'll save some space. What else... bedding will be simple again, going back to white! and of course, we need new throw pillows... cause you can never have enough. Sorry Steve! Well, I think that's it! What do you think? Any other suggestions?! Agh, I cannot wait to paint! Wedding first.. paint later!
