We finally found a home and have decided where we are going to settle down (at least for the next six months or so).  Last weekend while visiting family in San Diego, we stumbled upon a historic beach cottage just two blocks from the ocean.  We fell in love immediately and upon deciding that it was the perfect place for our little family, we spent this week packing up our current house and will be spending the long weekend moving into our new home.

Naturally, my mind has been spinning with design possibilities for the new place (meaning that is all I have been thinking about for the past week), but when it comes to interior design, I’m slightly all-over-the-place.  I just can’t quite narrow down what style truly fits our family.  I like so many different types of interior decor and just can’t seem to fully commit to one.  Are we the type of people that have a minimal home, a bohemian adobe, a modern space, or a glamorous getaway?

Since I have decided that none of the furniture we currently own work with our new space (my excuse for a redesign),  we are selling almost all of our furniture and are starting from scratch in our new home.  The cottage has lots of light and lots of open space, but it is on the small side and has a unique layout so I’m pretty perplexed as to where to even start.  If any of you are design aficionados and want to so graciously offer your design services, feel free to send some ideas over because right now I can use all of the help I can get.

In looking at a few of my favorite home images (below) from my “mi casa” pinterest board you will quickly show you my dilemma when it comes to decorating.












at the beginning of the year, i mentioned a few of our goals for the year and predicted that this would be a big year for us.  we only a month and half into 2013, but it already seems as though my prediction is coming true.  we have already received a few opportunities to live out our dreams and it seems like this is only the beginning.

it looks like we may have a big move coming up in the near future that will take us back to the oceanfront and i’m already day-dreaming about decorating a big boy room for holden.  i’m loving the idea of creating a space that is truly made for him, that stimulates his imagination and that sparks magic in his heart, possibly his own secret hideout or an indoor swing (that we all can enjoy)…but i’m getting a little ahead of myself since we have no immediate needs for a big boy room just yet.  so i guess for now, i’ll stick to pinning.

we are currently in the market for a new place.  preferably somewhere further south (like san diego south) and preferably somewhere by the ocean.  of course the prospective of moving means that i am spending hours drooling over gorgeous inspiration photos and planning out the interior of our next home.  i’m thinking bright, colorful, and eclectic…total bohemian chic.
