Decorating an imaginary home

My husband and I put an offer down on a house in Tahoe Park last week. It's a very exciting time for us. The market is great for first time home buyers and there are plenty of programs out there to help us close. We found a charming cottage in our desired neighborhood of Tahoe Park, just a block off the park. It's a quiet, quaint area where some of our friends live.
The kitchen needs a full remodel so I spent the better part of this evening brainstorming a general aesthetic. I'm thinking mid-century modern, with teal accents.

So, something like that. 

While I was hunting around on Readymade.com for cool DIY home design projects a familiar image caught my eye. It was of a old school-room graphic of some birds. I then saw the title said something about Arcata and I instantly knew the post was about Daisy's Drygoods, my favorite vintage treasury in Arcata.
It's so exciting to see a national magazine pick up on such a wonderful Humboldt shop. I make a point to visit Daisy's every time I'm in town. Read the full article here.


Speaking of awesome vintage boutiques, I had the privilege of attending Bella of The Citizen Rosebud's hide-away shop opening. I found a brilliant polka dotted dress and wimsical vintage nighty (it's basically the dress Liesl wore in the sound of music while singing "I am 16 going on 17"), which I will model and shoot tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving week, I know I did.

Congrats and good luck on the offer! So exciting! We must be on the same wavelength this weekend because I was totally brainstorming my bathroom remodel and thinking I should post a design board! Love yours!
Just got my Ready Made today! Have you read Claire and her hubby Garth's other posts? Love their work!
