I’m dreaming of a farmhouse table…

Okay, so yesterday we found out that we got the rental home! We are thrilled.

We toured the house again yesterday and Grace ran around the backyard, giggling with delight! We even met the little girl who lives next door. She’s 3 1/2 and so adorable. Grace is so excited to play with her. She keeps asking me, “When are we going back to our new house mommy?” She’s almost as anxious as me.

My mind is buzzing with design concepts.

First order of business…the dining room. For the first time in seven years we will actually have one so, of course, I want it to be fabulous. I want to strike a balance between rustic, eclectic and elegant. I’ve always wanted a big, old farmhouse table so I think I will start there…

As usual, Flickr has been a source of inspiration.  I am in love with those stenciled numbers on the back of the dining room chairs! So unique. So much fun to dream and get my design energy going again. Forgive my meandering into the interior design world – although Grace & Ivy is always a focus for me, setting up a new home is so exciting.

Another first, will be the opportunity to set up my very own office/creative space – an endeavor I have been craving.

Please do share any ideas you might have…as usual I love to read your comments!
