Time To Move? Or Just Time To Redecorate!?

That’s a great question is it time to redecorate or just move?? When was the last time you thought about updating your living space? Me? I think about it all the time! I love daydreaming about a new house. A house with windows! Lots of windows! Lots and lots of light.

NOT My Dream

time to redecorate Snow in WyomingNow, if The Husband has his way I will be decorating a new house in Wyoming or Idaho?! From California?! It’s COLD in Wyoming and Idaho!!! It SNOWS there!! YES! I know I’m yelling!! But I’m warm here, IN California! I’m barefoot 392 days a year. I don’t want to be cold!! Sorry, I got a little side-tracked there for a minute. But, SNOW!??


WELL THAT bit me in the arse. Because now I DO live in Sandpoint IDAHO!! WHERE IT SNOWS A LOT!! WHAT THE &@$$^@*&)(@&*# just happened??


Let’s get back to decorating. THE only reason a move sounds good to me is the fact I can decorate with brand new EMFURN furniture! I don’t have to have the kids in mind. My kids are grown in homes of their own. I can finally decorate with only The Husband and my tastes (okay, that’s a lie; with MY tastes in mind). How ridiculously fantastic is that idea?!
So? What would I buy? I would stick with the rustic look because that really appeals to me.

This table NEEDS to be in my entry way. I need a place for the bowl that my daughter made in 6th grade, it holds our car keys. This table is perfect! SO pretty!!
Above this table I MUST have the following canvas! If I live in the snow I would need a reminder to go outside. Right? You know, in the cold!?

I am absolutely certain that I need the light to hang over the dining room table. Have you ever seen a more unique fixture? Modern and rustic all at the same time! It really makes a statement don’t you think? Appropriately named the Da Vinci Ceiling Fixture.time to redecorate Da Vinci Ceiling FixtureOkay, I really have to stop shopping now or I’m going to wake up living on a farm in Wyoming with my new light fixture, side table and canvas!

Your Turn

What about you? If you could start over with your dΓ©cor would you take a 180 from how you decorate now? Or would you just spruce up what you currently own now? What furniture appeals to you?

What about moving? If you could move anywhere in the world. Where would you go? Or are you a bloom where you are planted person?

Again the furniture from EMFURN is stunning. Not 100% sure it will make me want to live in the snow…. but it is very tempting.

    We moved a lot (like 10 times in 15 years) when younger & I hated it. There were tears and tantrums as they had to drag me out screaming and hanging on to the leg of the dining room table!

    If I could move to anywhere in the world it would be the UK or Thailand! I don’t have a specific reason why though, haha πŸ˜‰

    Wyoming has some beautiful places that I’ve enjoyed visiting, but I wouldn’t move there. I don’t want to move anywhere else. I like my house and my life and the sunshine in Colorado.

    These rooms are decorated beautifully…. Specifically the fourth photo down. Gorgeous earth tones.. makes the room feel very warm and inviting. πŸ™‚

    I don’t think i want to move anywhere. I’m happy here where I am but it can be tempting when you think of all the exciting places there is to live! πŸ™‚

    While I’d love to live in Greece or Scotland, I hate the actual act of moving, lol. Every time we move, I swear something just never quite makes the move. Last time it was a big box full of almost all of our sheets & towels! I picture some one opening a box on the side of I-75 in KY & wondering why someone tossed all their sheets & towels.

    As a kid, I loved Winter. Now? No, not so much. My knees prefer warm weather! And that furniture is gorgeous!

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I’d quite like to live somewhere that had four definite seasons! In Ireland there’s a saying that we can get all four seasons in the one day πŸ™‚
