When J and I moved to our current appartment, we had to buy A LOT of new stuff. Our last appartment was about half the size of the new one, so we had a lot more space to fill. (Thank God for Ikea!! ;)
Two years later and it's clear that some of our choices work (I love our hallway drawer and my beautiful red, wooden bookcase) and some do not (I hate our messy bedroom and my completely uninspiring crafting/desk space).
So it's time for some changes, and this time - I want to do it right :)
Meet Decorate by Holly Becker and Joanna Copestick (pictures by Holly Becker over @ Flickr!):
Holly Becker has an amazing design blog called decor8, filled with inspiration and the most beautiful photographs!
Decorate is her first book and it contains design ideas for every room in the house.
There's even a chapter on creative spaces :) The photographs are by Debi Treloar - and they are absolutely incredible!! I tell you, I almost drooled on several occasions ;)
So with a little help from this book, I now find myself officially in phase one of my new decorating adventure: Preparation!
And I intend to stay there for as long as it takes ;)
