DH and I just bought our new house and I am dying to get in there and do some amazing decorating. The house is full of character, but is done in a boring taupe kinda way.
I'm really looking forward to doing the bedrooms. The cool thing is that everyone's room is just temporary and in a year's time we'll seitching everyone around, so we can fun and be stuck with what we do. For the girls' room I'm thinking Funked out Arabian Princess with the walls a fab fuschia and with blue, heavily embroidered Indian head scarves for the curtains. They both want canopies, so I'm going to play with that and fake flowers. OOOH fun!
As for DS, he is insane about dragons, animals, dinos and bugs...so I'm torn between dragon-y coolness and safari bugginess. He's 8 so he'll help me decide and help to decorate.
Our room is pretty blah, but DH bought me gorgeous $800!!! curtains for Yule, so I think that I'm going to base my design around them. They are the most expensive thing I own, other than the house itself.
I'll post pictures once we move in and keep things updated. This is going to be a blast!
