I’m very excited to announce that I am going to be buying a new [town]house! I heard yesterday that the seller accepted my offer, so now fingers are crossed that everything goes smoothly from here to our June 30 settlement date.
Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to decorating! I swung by Crate and Barrel last night and was able to snag some new plates that were on sale. What really blew my mind about the plates was they’re safe in the oven in heat up to 350 degrees! I had heard of microwave and dishwasher safe, but never oven safe; kinda cool.
I haven’t decided the “theme” or color scheme of the kitchen yet, but the plates and glasses are going with the blue and white theme, so who knows what the kitchen will end up like.
My Mom gave me some great advice saying, “Don’t buy everything all at once; live in the house for awhile and feel it out, decorate and collect furniture and art work as you go.” I think that is a fabulous idea! I will be sure to post pictures as I go through this process.
Any other tips for new homeowners?
