One of my favorite parts of my new life is nesting. Since Anthony and I started dating, what I’ve recently dubbed “The Estate” has changed dramatically. Since we have been married, The Estate has changed even more. Take the old couch pictured below as an example. Anthony had not one, but TWO of those poufy, tan guys in the living room.
One of Anthony’s old roommates now has the couches and we inherited Anthony’s parents’ old couch (pictured below) and moved it down from Fort Worth when my furniture migrated. Upgrade!
Of course eventually, Anthony and I want to choose couches of our own (I’d like something with tufting and a style similar to this, this, or this), but we are incredibly grateful for how much hand-me-downs and wedding presents have helped make our together home cozy.
I want to make our home into a safe place filled with love. I want the things we bring inside our home to be beautiful, practical and reflective of us. I hope everyone will come stay in our guestroom and share our version of home with us. My new brother, sister-in-law, and nephew will be coming in town this weekend and will be our first houseguests!
Maybe because I shifted from wedding blogs straight to home decor blogs, or maybe because I am nosey and in need of inspiration – I wonder how home-making is going for all of my newlywed Fort Worth friends… (Or even those who have been married for a while. Or even my single friends with adorably decorated apartments and houses).
Be on the lookout for more upgrades we’ve made and others we have in the pipeline.
