Last night as hubby and I cuddled on the couch watching tv together alone. Yes, it was a rare moment. The kids were supposed to be in their beds allowing Mr. Sandman to sing them a lullaby but I don't think they have been formally introduced to him yet, either that or they don't get along because bedtime can be tortureous in our house. But that's a different post all together. For the sake of the story I will be honest and tell you that the kids were upstairs running and playing way past bedtime but both hubby and I pretended not to hear them because neither one of us wanted to move from our cozy cuddling place...awwwwww. So as I am sitting there I looked around the room and realized that there are very few pieces in the family room I love. There is the rug which I spent more than hubby wanted on, but I love it. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. And there's the ottoman that hasn't found the perfect place in our home. The point is, my home has the decorating touch of a tired mom with lots of kids! I think it's time for a change. My hubby wanted to know what sparked this desire for change, who can he blame for the money I now feel the need to spend to create that feeling of hmmmmmm, when I walk through the door. I told him he could thank Tam over at Get it Girl Style. I have been spending free time drooling on her blog. She finds the most unique things and puts them together so beautifully. I am feeling inspired. I'm going to create an idea board for the dining area. It's time for the Artis house to mone from function alone to fashionably uniquely function-able...is that even a design category?
