When can I move in?

It is time to move the family! Why the move? Well because this place just needs us! I love the old and the new touches, the clean and feminine touches. I just love it all!






I adore this desk area. This is my problem, I love more modern stuff when I look at pics like this, but I have realized I have no real modern furniture in my house. I am too scared to commit to stuff that might go out of style in a couple of years! Should I take the plunge and go with more modern dining chairs? But then I wouldn't be able to get them at the GW for dirt cheap and redo them myself!!!

Here's a bonus pic for you! It's a shot of Richard and I in Vegas! ( I am using my hubby's computer and found this on here) Awwwwww!

I am LOVING this home too!!! And yes, I say go for it and get a modern desk! It has clean lines and it's not "so" modern that you couldn't use it for many years to come!! I like mixing modern with classic pieces!!

Go for it girlie!!

Fab home! Love the gold lamp base on the desk, too!

P.S. Pic of you and huz in Vegas is adorable! What a fab couple you make!

That home looks so cozy :), and I think it is OK to mix old and new, and then it'll be called ecletic?, and thanks for sharing your pic with Richard babe, you are so sweet :)), wishing you a wonderful day :) xoxo

Yay..great photo find of you and your hubbi. Nice house too you posted. I just finished reading your dining room post and saw your next post about Moving house? I was thinking surely she is not that freaked out about her dining room...surely lol!! Sinead x

Mia Delessi said...

Lovely home! And the picture of you and your husband is too adorable, you guys look great together! xo

Ari- Audrey Onassis said...

Wow! What a stunning house! I'll move into the guest room. ;)

Chantale said...

Aw, you two are so gorgeous! Together and separately! That home is really so comfy isn't it? I think you can safely blend modern and traditional pieces together. Give it a go!

I'm always reluctant to go with trendy or modern pieces when it comes to the high ticket ones. IMO, it makes more sense to buy trendy accessories that are less expensive and doesn't give you pangs of guilt if you give them away in a few years.

Emily Jane said...

What a beautiful home! And a great shot of you two. Just had to stop by and say hello and thank you so much for commenting on my blog! :)

Anna Liesemeyer said...

I am the same way...modern is my style but always nervous to commit to a trendy piece. This home is fabulous.

Mrs. Chic said...

Lovely home!!

Krystal said...

i LOVE seeing the picture of you two! how cute!
and we must be house style twins, my heart hearts over this house

Anaiz said...

Aw that's a cute picture of you two! I love all the stacks of books everywhere!

Brandi said...

What a great apartment! I love the wall color and the lamp. You should def go for some modern pieces. I feel those things really balance a place and add a little edge. Even if you don't use the dining chairs forever you could find another place for them like a desk or hallway, even a powder room!

Sharstin said...

cute pict of you guys--and the house is awesome~

Prencie said...

Oh yes, very nice house and love the way it's decorated! So is this a house on the market? Was it staged for viewers? LOVE that Louis Ghost chair, I'm getting one for our desk/computer area!!

Maddy said...

Awww!!! Look at you at the hubby :) I am desperate for an "office" area, but I'm afraid to commit to a desk, especially since I'm still renting. I feel like I should wait to get any furniture until we buy a house!

Jess said...

You might have to make some room in your new home... My husband, 2 dogs and cat would also like to move in! ;)

Mary said...

That desk area has my name written all over it!!!

alison (semi-fab lane) said...

go ahead, splurge on the modern chairs. i know what you mean though...i have been eyeing eames-esque chairs and think to myself: are they going to be totally out in a year? but i love mixing vintage with modern-it's my fav!

traci zeller designs said...

That modern desk is from West Elm so at least you can get it for a decent price! Oh, and there is definitely a difference between "modern" and "contemporary." The "modern" pieces (Eames, etc.) that have become classics will never be out of style! So I say GO FOR IT. ;-)

firepages said...

The home is beautiful! I love your fruit bowls and desk area. My fruit bowl has bills in it, and the fruit never makes it out of the bag. Lol. Oh, don't get me started on Las Vegas. I go there so often, I might as well get a second home there.

Mimi said...

I adore your blog, you always have the best interior decorating inspirations!!!

emily said...

What a great picture of you and your husband! So cute. And the house pictures are amazing. Love the harp-back dining chairs. Can we move in with you?! :)

christine said...

I love the colour of that dining room table and chairs!

Carpe Diem said...

I think "modern" chairs would look great in your dining room because they would create a perfect contrast to your traditional table. The acrylic/ghost chair featured in your post is "modern" but it is mostly traditional due to its louie lines. Therefore, these chairs are not trendy and will not go out of style.

Jesse said...

What a cute photo of the two of you!!
And the home is super cozy and comfy looking! Love it!
Hope you area feeling better. =)

Rachel- Once Upon a Farm said...

You are so HOT, Leah! Oh, and Rich looks good too. :) Don't worry about not having enough modern, your blog is "vintage glamorous"!!:):) Love you!

Jen of Made By Girl said...

Ah! I see the ghost chair that I suggested for your dining room chairs in one of those pics! I think they are lovely. :o)

Evi said...
