Things on the Walls!

So for a long time, we had blank walls.  You can see this in the house tour.  Not that we didn't have anything to put up- just that I didn't know where to put everything in the new house!  Plus, I didn't want to put anything up until we had painted, and that took forever to do.  (You know, like how we bought the paint for our bedroom back in... September... and just painted it last week...)


We've made a lot of progress lately!  I had been looking for curtains for a while.  Let me tell you, I had no idea what I was even looking for.  I needed something that went with the blueish walls, but I didn't want just a neutral because pretty much all of our furniture on the main floor is neutral and I didn't want it to be boring.  I found lots of colorful curtains that I liked, but they all seemed like too much when the walls were already colored.  Guys.  I had no idea what I was doing!  Finally I found these curtains and immediately loved them.  The yellow accent goes perfectly with the blue walls, and the print really softens the whole area.  I still may not know what I'm doing but at least I found something I love!

And then I finally put together the new photo gallery wall in the dining room.  I painted the K knowing that we were getting those curtains with the yellow flowers, so it all coordinates really well.  Now we need to get new family pictures taken so we can get Andrew in the gallery!

So we're making progress, finally!

I am glad I am not the only one who has no idea how to decorate the walls of their house! Haha! (I go to do something, but I just don't know what I want or what would look good!) Those curtains are beautiful!

Hey Erika! I just bought those curtains! Thanks for posting a picture, they look way better in your house than online. I was going through target.com, found these, and was like "these are strangely familiar!" The only problem was that I only ordered one... so we've had just one up for the past few weeks and are expecting the other any day. Thanks for posting, I love them :)
