New Apartment

Did I mention that we move ALOT?  Well, we thought for sure this time around that we would be in the same place for at least a year.  Well, we were almost right.  We will be staying in Houston for another year, but we have to move to a different apartment.  Which at first, I will be honest, I was SO mad that we had to move again!!!  We had just moved a ton of our belongings from our house back in Utah, and the thought of having to pack up all that stuff again just made me sick!

But on the plus side, we got to pick out our new apartment.  My husbands company houses us during the summertime, and don't get me wrong, we have always been spoiled with our apartments!  Great locations, and they are always very nice and very clean.  But this time around we got to choose, and boy was it fun!  We decided to go with something a bit more on the modern side which usually is not our style.  We just figured that we would try out the whole modern feel and see if its what we would like in our future house one day.  

So, since this job is normally just a summertime job, our company provides all of the furniture too, but since we are going to be here longer, we are going to need some new furniture which means SHOPPING!  We really only need a couch and a dining set and some fun accessories.  So, here are a few things I found.  Let me know what you think.

When we move in September, and get somewhat settled, I will post pictures of what we decided to go with!  Let me know what your thoughts are and what rug is your favorite?


  1. Moving is always tough, especially when you know its not permanent. But new furniture shopping is fun! Those couches are darling! Either one will be so cute. As for the colors... play around. Be daring. I just redecorated my kitchen in black and red and I love it!! : )

  2. I love big corner couches like that, good luck with your move!

  3. Good luck with the move - love the blues and whites color scheme:))

  4. You are a good woman for moving so much! My favorite couch is the first one :)

  6. good luck with everything! and have fun decorating!

  7. I just love modern spaces! And I love all of the prints you are looking at! So exciting! Can't wait to see pictures!

  8. We have identical tastes! I am extremely picky & have taken 3 years to finalize colors for my house. Guess what I based my decision on. That VERY same Target rug w/the black, blue, and lime green; I chose it months ago & haven't wavered. =) Hope you love your new digs! Good luck!
