Keeping Resolutions : Making A House, A Home

I have been working pretty hard to make my place feel like home since I moved in. Slowly but surely, it's been happening, but of course you can only do so much at once. Most of my free time is spent shopping for artwork, or looking for things that fit my sense of style, and overall it's really starting to feel like a comforting place for me. I look forward to coming home, and seeing everything the way I laid it out, even the decorating. It's really exciting to be able to have full creative control.

As I have mentioned earlier , I am waiting a little before I give a real of each room because I am still buying things as I go. One of my resolutions this year is to fix up this little place and make it mine. To fix everything that needs to be fixed, and put up some fresh paint + love, and watch it all take form. 

All of the pieces pictured are from Marshalls. It's amazing how different each piece is, and how it all fits together so nicely. I recently bought my coffee table and I really love how the style of my love for vintage comes through. Marshalls is my one stop shop for everything home related. I can go in and get everything I need, and not have to make 20 stops at different stores. I love that I can find so many different things there, and that they're all one of a kind and different. You'll never see the same thing twice, and it's pretty cool to build around that.

I hope you guys like this little peek into my home, I can't wait to show more as I go. It's been really fun for me being able to express this side of me creatively. One of the last renovations I need to make is painting my office/studio and this is probably the biggest project so far. I will definitely keep you guys in the loop, hope your Monday is going great!
