It’s been unintentionally quiet around here because we dove head first into a dozen projects that have a hard deadline. Turns out HGTV can’t get enough of us and we’re scheduled to shoot a “House Hunters: Where are They Now?” episode
next week tomorrow(!!!!) We’re so excited to share the updates to our space! (We hadn’t even moved in when they wrapped the original episode.) I don’t have any details on when it will air, but I’ll pass them along when I do.
We think we cobbled together a pretty manageable list of smaller projects to tackle before the cameras start rolling. High on the list: get some art up on the living room walls. We’ve been pondering art ever since we pulled this room together earlier this year. We’ve been browsing, pinning and even buying (we snagged a piece at the St Louis Art Fair earlier this month), but we decided nothing was getting a home until we got our film scans back from our Pacific Northwest trip.
Those arrived last Monday and we sat down with a bottle of wine to make some tough choices about what we wanted to stare at on a daily basis. We started by pulling our favorites from the trip, a few fine art images we snapped while at weddings and a collection of redscale shots from a spring trip to Chicago, which we forgot about until we got the scans back. Discovering forgotten images is almost as good as finding money in your pocket (almost.)
There were 4 areas we hoped to fill
- Second landing on the staircase
- Long wall between the plant shelf and the TV
- Behind the couch
So here are the contenders:
Any guesses on what we chose and what went where? I’ll be back tomorrow with a breakdown of our choices.
