Hi, guys! I know it’s been a seriously long time since I’ve posted any new content. I have been so busy. And really, I have an excuse. We are buying a house! Yep, finally. We made an offer on a short sale, even with the unpredictability of those darn things. But things have been going so smoothly! I really can’t believe it. I’m planning on sharing our short sale timeline once everything settles down because I think it’s nice to be able to read someone else’s experience when you’re going through your own short sale but in the meantime, I thought I’d share some decorating inspiration.

For anyone who hasn’t seen the movie Paddington, please, stop what you’re doing and go watch that movie. I have been sick for seven days straight–including Christmas day. Big bummer. However, I took a little time to lie on the couch and watch Paddington. Not only is it one of the sweetest movies I’ve seen of late, it’s also set (mostly) in London. The London townhouse where much of the movies takes place is unbelievably charming. I am all about home decor; it’s one of the things I live for. I’ve been to England a time or two and those Brits sure have an eye for design. They keep things so fun, colorful, and cozy. In the movie Paddington, the Browns’ house is no different. This house has every ounce of British charm that makes me tingle all over–along with a touch of mid century flare. Instead of trying to describe exactly what I’m talking about, I’m just going to show you through a few pictures I’ve borrowed from various places on this world wide web. Here they are:
The interior of this quaint little charmer is actually not real, though I wish it were. Each room of this house was built for the set, though the exterior is in fact, a real house. Nonetheless, I have decided I must have a painted tree mural in my future home. I also think I need to incorporate a little more quirkiness into my decor style. This house is so fun and so (dare I say) British. I love every single thing about it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these photos of this charming make-believe wonderland of a house. If you haven’t yet seen Paddington, or you’d like to buy it, find it here. Are there any movies that have inspired your design eye lately?
This is a post I wasn’t expecting to write but since I made these holiday treat bags last night I felt like I had to write something about them because they turned out so great and totally worked for a last-minute holiday gift to give to friends. Continue Reading
