It’s been a busy-bee sort of week – running errands and settling into our new home. While the unloading of boxes has been a chore it’s been fun to discover how our things will *be* here and to start wireframing our space.
We’ve got some oats to sew before we’re ready for a real House Tour. For example our dining table is a skosh dinky for it’s new habitat and the living room could use a little modern love and a bold character piece for the mantle. The bedroom is too dark wood for a beach pad and we need a prescription for all of these books and walls. There is much to be done but I’m in no hurry. These things take time, don’tcha know? Besides, I have big plans for scouring the Rose Bowl flea market and must also consult my girls Laure and Morgan in all of this. These two are masters at the art of charmed spaces not to mention a serious hoot to spend a day with (see the fruits of our collective efforts here).
Yes, it will take some time to find our bungalow mo-jo but one week in it sure is feeling like home.
Enter House Tour:
That big empty room isn’t much just yet but the converted garage might be my favorite thing about this place. The owner and previous resident is a stand up comedian and used this space as a studio from which he streamed his live, Sirius XM radio show. Until one of us makes it big at the Laugh Factory our plan is to make this a guest room slash photography studio slash yoga den.
And maybe sometimes we’ll just sit in the middle of the room and soak up the funny.
