Did a little retro-home-consignment-touring through the city yesterday; found a fun place called the Red Door Consignment Gallery. They have lots of interesting stuff from retro to modern to traditional--keeping my eye out for a fun set of chairs to create a conversation area either in our main great room or master bedroom...I'll keep you updated! I did pick up a couple of countertop office files that are going to serve as a handy little home for our kitchen spices and a fun little geometric canvas/cloth piece that is going to find a home in the powder room. Here's a sneak peek...

Before my excursions yesterday, I finally mustered up enough energy to tackle the 3rd floor bedroom and give the hardwood floor a nice deep clean. Amidst all of the move-in madness, Mike and I had to quickly choose a bedroom so the movers could unpack everything and reconstruct our furniture. We debated for a bit, but in an effort to streamline the process, decided upon the large bedroom on the second floor with the attached (largest) master bathroom.
Alas, this is where we've been sleeping for the past few weeks...sans decor :-/ The room is large and complete with bay windows and a small little balcony, but...it is west facing and gets really warm from all of the afternoon sun. I'm just not diggin' the vibe! What I really mean is I'm in LOVE with the room on the third floor which feels a bit more lofty, has an asymmetrical vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, refurbished hardwood floor, and has LOTS charm (although it boasts a much smaller bathroom).
