Purple's and Pretties


That is how I described what I wanted in my living room. LOL. 

No but seriously, when I was thinking about how I wanted my house to feel and look, I found a bunch of inspiration online obvi, but I knew I definitely wanted a super feminine, yet sophisticated space. This is my first house, and it is going to be my late (cough cough) twenties girlie heaven. ;)

Everything is TOTALLY still a work in progress, I have some chairs and some lighting fixtures I cannot stand, but we are getting there one piece of pretty at a time. 


This is the kitchen I wanted, and very very similar to the kitchen I got. Gas stove and all. Check. And I wanted my living room to be neutral grey's and blacks, with pops of purple and silver girly things. Check check. 


Every feminine space needs a mirrored piece of furniture of sorts right? Right. So Yesterday I scoured Craigs List and found this little beauty.



I was emailing with the seller and she goes "wait a minute, you are PinkLouLou?! I read your blog!" Haha. I died laughing, it was so sweet, and I thought YES this table is mine. Well turns out someone snagged said table before me. But the seller was so sweet. (hey girl!)  But I did find it on Overstock.com here ;)

I also DESPISE the lighting fixtures over my bar/island thingy in the kitchen. Needless to say they are not the ones I thought were going in there lol. Easy fix though in all honesty.

I think I have decided on these for the dining area and above the bar. Simple and clean with a touch of sparkle. And reasonably priced as well, thanks Overstock!

I also am in the market for a new couch. The one I have in the living room now works fine, it is one from my parents house and very nice, but it is just not exactly what I want for in there. I want something softer and more inviting. Add it to the list, lol.

It appears this home decorating thing is going to be a forever ongoing process ;)

HEEEEEEELP.

Looks to me like you've gotten an asston done already! I love these pics! Everyone else's house pics are half what their husband wants. It's fun to see a whole space that's 100% YOU. Great job, Pink! :)

I haven't decorated mine and my hubby's house, because we rent. So much effort. However, I can't wait to decorate a house, when we purchase one!!

I've never been but I've heard of Lexington Overstock that just opened up that is supposed to have good stuff. I know it may seem weird, but Kroger Marketplace on Richmond Road has surprisingly good furniture. Gordmans also has tons and tons of home decor!
