One of my past blog entries mentioned how I was having trouble finding my place in my new home with Matt. For the first couple of months the house felt cold and disorganized, and without any of my personal touches throughout. Now that we’ve been married for the past three months (dang, has it only been three months?) the house is a lot warmer and my things are all moved in, but it is still disorganized. It’s making me kind of dizzy, to tell you the truth.

I’m the kind of person who needs organization in my life, needs clutter to be at a minimum. I think the problem that Matt and I are facing is that we both have a lot of things, but we haven’t learned to “mesh” them together yet. For example, we really don’t need two coffee pots, and even though we registered for glassware, we really don’t use them very often (or if we do, we already have our favorites and don’t use the rest). So, this weekend looks like a good time to start cleaning house and to get rid of all the “unnecessary” items. Once this is done, it’s time to start decorating!  

I’ve been researching different room formats for ideas on how I want our guest room to look like. I’ve finally narrowed it down to these choices below:

I love how this room gives off an “airy” feel, and makes a person feel welcome.


I’m thinking this photo would also be good to use as a template because our apartment has slanted ceilings in nearly every room. I also like the decorations on the wall/ceiling.

Because Matt is a photographer, I’m hoping to incorporate a lot of his photos in the guest room, more than likely above the bed like so.


I’ve been checking out various Web sites for ideas, and have found some awesome ones, such as TheNest.Com and ApartmentTherapy.Com. I’m thinking I can incorporate certain aspects in these photos into our guest room, as well as get some wall painting tips from online. Here’s hoping we can tackle this new project together within the next few weeks! I will let you know how things go.
