The Waiting Is The Hardest Part

Last week it was The Grateful Dead....this week it's Tom Petty.  I'm feeling musical I guess.  My son will be so proud.
Seriously, the waiting is killing me!  I want escrow to close and I want to be moved so I can commence decorating.

Here are some pretty rooms that I want to copy right down to every last detail (it's ok to do that right?)  

This one above from Jennifer Laraia Designs has me thinking about a sectional for the first time ever.  It's so pretty and inviting. 

Cannot shake this one.  Danielle Moss.  The painting reminds me of the Cougar Town painting and I'm in love with the brass sconces from Euro Style Lighting.  White sofa, no brainer for me.

I've had a crush on these chairs (above) for a long time but always thought they might be too modern for me until I saw how Liz Bachman styled hers with sheepskin and ikat pillows.  Love!

I really love the light and airy feeling in this dining room (Liz Bachman again).  I've always loved the West Elm chairs but never would have thought of using them with this them together.

And if I could squeeze in this little tulip table (decor8) that would make me happy.  Here's an eye opener....almost all of the dining tables in my Pinterest  board are tulip tables.  I've never owned one.  Apparently I really like them a lot.

And of course you remember this bedroom.  This is going to happen, some way some how...and by some how I mean without the $1300 nightstands.

And could we please throw in one of these cuties....loved this Jonathan Adler pillow for awhile now.  Just buy it already.

Six months of NOT buying stuff while house hunting is no fun!  

I'm ready to shop and agonize over every decision and second guess myself to death and wonder if I have any taste at all.  Yep, that is my decorating process.  





  1. I love what you're going to do with the place :) Sometimes the dreaming is the best part, but you'll work wonders when you finally get in there!

  2. This is going to be the white palace. I love it. I find it really hard to be patient, too. Hang in there.

  3. I love your style! I'm sure you're very anxious to get into the new place. I'm so excited to see what you do with it!

  4. Love your style Karen...I've had my white Saarinen tulip table for about 15 years and I still love it. Every time we are redoing a kitchen someone says well you could lose the table and do a banquette...and of course, I'm like...oh hello no, the table stays!

    The large photographs above the bed...I think you have some on your iphone that would work very well!

  5. I love all of the above! Love the sectional and really love the sconces above the sofa. Can't wait to see what you do...Hang in there. It's almost time to start decorating.

  6. Hang in there...its hard to be patient...but it will all come together!

  7. I am so impatient...hang in will be here before you know it!

  8. These are all great spaces! Danielle's with that painting from Jen of Made by Girl is one of my faves too.

  9. Your process sounds like mine:) I can make decisions for everyone else....but not me! I love everyone of your inspiration pictures....

  10. I love your plans and inspiration rooms! Hope the wait ends soon! Hang in there!
