So all of this creativeness and organizing and reorganizing makes me realize how much I really want my own house and not an apartment with all antique white walls and generic linoleum floors and dingy door knobs. Don't get me wrong. I love my apartment. It is really spacious and has a great layout but it has some much more potential that the designers didn't utilize. Plus its all just a little outdated and could use some sprucing up but since I don't plan to live there forever there's really no point in making those kinds of changes. So it's a little frustrating knowing that I have to put a leash on my decorating and design ideas since I can't paint or change any light fixtures or do any of those kinds of upgrades.
Of course it doesn't help that I'm totally addicted this blog Addicted 2 Decorating where the author Kristi is documenting the renovation of her home which is 40 or 50 years old I believe. If you have never read one of her blogs you really need to go check her out. She's amazing and she does almost all of the work herself unless it has to do with something major like plumbing or electrical. She is so inspirational and makes me want to dive head first into all the projects that I always thought would be impossible to do on my own.
So for now I will just keep note of all my wonderful plans and ideas as they come to mind so one day when I finally have my own little dream house, I can paint and create until my heart's content. And I guess I will just have to find a way to be happy with however I can make my mark on my current abode and continue to dream look to the future.
