musings from the pink chair

decorating madness

Posted on: 22 August 2009

i’ve been on an organizing/decorating kick lately, and the arrival of the new ikea catalog only fueled the fire.  projects on deck include:

  • creating simple yet happy art/decoration to go against the blank bit of wall just above my desk. finishing this up tomorrow.
  • finding a clever and accessible yet stylish storage solution for my magazines – i always keep old issues of wired for reference (total nerd, and yes, i use them all the time), but they’re taking over the bookshelf and starting to look ugly. could use suggestions for this one.
  • totally reorganizing my closet to make room for a) ella’s kitty stuff, b) more bags/shoes/accessories, c) linens (currently living in under-bed storage, totally inconvenient and annoying).  it should all fit if i’m clever about it…and install a few more hooks.
  • installing some floating shelves for my ever-growing DVD collection.
  • *possibly* flipping the living room layout – i.e. swapping the couch and TV.
  • measuring and possibly reorganizing my bedroom to see if/when a new bed will be feasible.
  • *possibly* picking up a new rug i just saw online that would go perfectly in my bathroom or closet.

woohoo!  i know it’s a lot, but believe me, it’s not all happening at once.  in the long term, i’m hoping to paint the living room and bedroom, get that new bed (and new linens), and add curtains to the windows – they just have blinds now, and although they’re nice wood blinds, i think some long, sheer curtains could add a lot to the space.
