For the past couple of weeks, me and my husband have been looking for our dream home 24/7. We talk about it, live it, and breathe it. What started out as just a casual remark “We’re outgrowing our space, let’s look for fun and see what’s out there.” has turned into a day and night obsession.
The turning point from looking casually to being on a mission happened late one night. The hubs and I saw a brownstone penthouse listing that we declared was our ‘dream’ home. This would be IT for us. We stayed up all night talking about how we were going to decorate the space, what furniture to fill up the roof deck, etc. We were SO certain and excited that it was ours only to find out that another buyer has moved quicker.
Talk about reality check and heartbroken. If were going to look, we needed to be serious and move quick.
Anyhow, because I’m all about home now-a-days, here’s a roundup from my Pinterest on some of the interior decor inspirations that I NEED for our lovely new home (someday…soon).

This is a MUST for my new home! Gold art wallpaper. I’ve already told the husband and I think he’s sold!
Another MUST? A chalkboard wall, preferably in the kitchen so Zoey can doodle while I cook. Although, I must admit…I’m so digging this gold framed chalkboard. It’s definitely less committal than painting an entire wall.
I am completely obsessed with the idea of finding a huge thrifted French dresser, painting it white, and adding vintage gold or glass knobs to it. Loving the one above.
My bathroom will possess a clawfoot tub…eventually.
We saw a house with white brick walls yesterday and I was love-strucken!
A neat idea for storing pots. Both mobile and cool.
I would totally neatly display my blouses and dresses on a shopping clothes rack! I think I would paint it white though.
And of course I’m also thinking about Zoey’s room. How awesome is this organizing shelf unit with the different background? Sigh…ideas, ideas!
Hope these also inspired you. Follow me on Pinterest for a daily dose of inspiration!

This is amazing since from what I last remembered, you guys were re-decorating your home.
I love the chalkboard and the French dresser! There are so many great things you can do!
The shelving unit for kids is adorable!! Best of luck with your house hunting. 🙂
I’m sorry to hear about that house. That’s happened to us before with apartments. I love all those ideas, though. I hope you can find a vintage dresser!
