To me, our home is our sanctuary. You have to put love into it to get love out. Nesting is what comes natural to most humans; claiming your space and putting your seal of approval down for all your guests to see. I just tend to take it to another level.
The same day we moved in to our SF apartment, I couldn’t wait to unpack. I unpacked over half of our boxes, hung up all of our clothes and loaded the dishwasher with our (small) assortment of china. It was like the first day of school, you stay up all night getting your outfit together so that when the sun rises in the morning…you are ready to start your new life. I didn’t go to bed until almost 4am.
We started out with almost nothing, and now it’s bursting at the seams with curiosities. I love it. Living with a man in the house, you have to make it work; meshing masculine and feminine together isn’t impossible. I think our apartment is just as much mine as it is his.
If you’re in Chicago, don’t forget to stop by An Orange Moon to check out Lynne’s amazing stock of Mid Century furniture and decorating doodads. You will have to pick your jaw off the floor more than once. I promise.
