I've been so quiet on the blog lately because we found a house last week, put in an offer and got the accepted offer on Saturday the 3rd! We passed the inspection on Tuesday night and have been cleaning out our house every night and weekend since we know the move is now real. We are supposed to close a month from today!
Here are a few interior photos of the new house. I love the current owners' style. Friends and family who know me well also commented that it's very me when they saw the photographs.
The kitchen of my dreams! I initially wanted white cabinets, but figured they might be hard to find. Maple was the next best thing. Anything but oak. I am not a fan of the 90's houses with oak trim and cabinets. I'm just happy we don't need to makeover a kitchen because I love everything about this one.
I'm also looking forward to buying all new furniture and accessories. We've been living with hand me downs for years in anticipation of this move and now that it's here, it's so much fun to shop in furniture stores and in Target's home section and see things that match my/our style! I definitely skew a little more modern/contemporary and less traditional in nature. At least I know what I like when I see it! It's kind of nice to move right before winter because I'll have time to shop for things and spend time indoors styling the new house.
For those of you who have moved recently--any tips? I have a recommendation for anyone moving or thinking about it soon--listen to the "Things" Invisible Office Hours podcast. It feels good to purge and donate!
