Settling in

We have settled into our new house a lot. There are still some boxes in closets and in the spare bedroom/office that I hope to empty out sometime soon! I really want to paint soon too. Maybe this weekend? At least in the living room/dining and kitchen.

I am going with greys for the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Pale grey for the larger space, and a shade or two darker for the kitchen. I liked the color of the kitchen at our recent rental house, a warm grey. Seen above to the right (blurry)! But I had taken that picture at some point in the rental.I liked the way red and white looked against it. I need to pull out my cute squirrel towel too, it's somewhere around here!

No walls in the house are decorated yet because I wanted to wait until we painted. I can't wait to bring all the wall frames, shelves, and decor back out! I'm loving the look of this:

I already have a few framed pieces that could be used in a similar fashion. I like the white frames against the grey.

The move into this house 3 1/2 weeks ago feels longer ago than that to me! Life has been so fast moving in the past 4 months that I still can't believe sometimes what has happened. I hope to write more about life in our new neighborhood and the Birmingham area as we explore! I had visited the area so many times in previous years that I had familiarity with certain sections. Now it's been fun to find new places. So far our favorite new find is an Indian restaurant in downtown near UAB. It's delicious!!! We had been to another Indian restaurant we liked many times, but it's good to have options.

I love the art wall. We are sort of planning to do the same in some form or another!
