The contrast between the two properties is starting to grow more and more apparent. I've shared some pictures of my favorite super girly bedroom in Santa Ynez before, but I thought I'd do a little update because I've added a few more touches (and I just like looking at pictures of her).
|The room gets such great light in the early afternoon. I want to just |
lie on the bed and read a book.
|Although I painted the sliding closet doors, I left the wall cupboard and drawers yellow |
because eventually we plan to rip them out to gain some extra space in the
neighboring bathroom. Why paint when you're going to demo, right?
|This little stool was $5.99 at IKEA and I think it makes a great place to put |
a phone or glass of water before bed. Mr. W was mad at me for spending money on it.
As if he doesn't drink $6 worth of wine and just pee it out every week...
|Yet another beef Mr. W has had with me over the house: Too many new rugs. |
Since we bought the house, I've purchased 3. But they make such a difference in
their rooms! This one was from RugsUSA. I think on sale...
|The bicycle pillow is one of my favorite things in the room. I found it on Joss & Main|
and with a discount I had, it only cost me about $10 before shipping. I just think
it's so quirky and cute. Totally makes me smile when I walk in the room.
The Hollywood house, on the other hand...not so beautiful. Here are some shots of what it's been looking like lately:
|Between the laundry from Santa Ynez and the clothes in my hamper, I had a good,|
solid 4 loads to do yesterday. As you can see, Zoë doesn't mind the mess.
|One of my favorite dumping spots for papers, cords, and the occasional |
shark-fin-shaped ice cube tray...
|Some of these are clean, some of them are dirty. The sink was so bad I |
couldn't even take a picture of it. Good thing I'm husbandless right now.
|This is just a tiny snapshot of the cat hair issue that pervades our house. |
Or at least how it's been lately since I've been putting my vacuuming
efforts to work at a different locale.
I'm really looking forward to having only one house to take care of again. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it on the side of sunshine and cleanliness rather than clutter and tumbleweeds. That is, if the garden and chickens don't start dominating all of my tidying time...
