I agree with cakekick...resist the urge to fully furnish your house right away. When my husband and I bought our condo, we purchased some bare necessities on the cheap and made no decisions (i.e. paint, art) right away. Since then, we have slowly replaced our temporary furnishings as we've built up our budget (and figured out our style). It's okay to live with a blank(ish) slate for a while. Start reading blogs like Desire to Inspire in the meantime!

P.S. That kitchen is beautiful.

What a gorgeous space!

Is that a white or a natural Eames Modernica rocker? I suspect the latter and I'm second-guessing the order I placed (for the white version) last night.

Wash your hands. With soap.

Thanks TowerGirl! I'm glad it's holding up well so far. We have the cardboard scratch boxes, but our cats like variety I guess! Their claws sound like little machine guns on our couch. It's very disconcerting to wake up in the middle of the night to that sound.

TowerGirl, where did you get that sofa? I really like it! A few questions - is it leather or vinyl? Have you had trouble keeping the white bright? My husband and I want to buy a white leather sofa (with four cats, we're sick of our fabric Ikea Klippan being a hair magnet/scratching post) but not if it starts looking dingy.
