Living here has made me more conscious of design.  I don’t know if it’s because I have more time on my hands to read design blogs, or if it’s just the availability of nice things here.  Either way, I’m gradually making our little home more put together.

When we first moved in, we picked up a bunch of furniture from garage sales and Craigslist.  We’re not super happy with it all, but it’s doing the job.  I think we will eventually replace most of it, but for now, we keep moving things around trying to get the best fit.

The front hall has a lovely little hole in the wall that we were originally keeping our keys and pocket contents (as Prince Charming calls them).  It was messy and not the most beautiful thing to see when you came in the door.

Then this cute little owl arrived from England.  And I made a little bird to go along with it and perch on top of the mirror.

I have a vision of eventually finding a typewriter and putting it on this table (which used to be in the living room, but makes a great entry table) so I can write Prince Charming messages and he can write them to me too.  But as the ones I have found so far are over $100, I just have flowers for now.

Here it is.

The front entry way:

It has an owl, and a bird and some flowers

The picture above the owl is a copy of our wedding invitation.  Designed by Yours Truly.  It’s our silhouettes.  I love it.

Here’s hoping that the rest of the house comes together as well as the front hallway has!
