Inspiring Spaces // Merging Styles

It has officially been six months since we moved into our cute "little" town house and I couldn't be happier.  Sean and I had always talked about our "cute little house" that we would someday move into with a cute little dog and our cute little life that we would share together.  Though the two apartments we lived in prior to this move were great for the time being, they never truly felt like home.

*Note:  That may or may not have something to do with the fact that I never saw us living there for more than our lease allotted.  Short term living situation = no motivation to actually do things to make the space feel like home.

Ok, so back to our wonderful new house.  We have more space than we've ever had to work with and our sweet pup actually has room to roam.  Progress is a beautiful thing.  Neither of us can come up with any good reason that we would need to move any time soon which is also a beautiful thing.  I mean, come on.  Does anyone honestly enjoy moving?  I've done enough of it in my lifetime ... Fourteen times to be exact.

With no plans of moving any time soon we have slowly, but surely, started putting things together and merging our home decor styles.  I'm lucky that Sean doesn't really care how the house is decorated one way or another, but I'd rather not "Chelc-ify" the place since he lives here just as much as I do.  We've found that he leans more towards the industrial side of things whereas I'm more of a rustic kind of girl.  Perfect combination, right?  Here's some of the photos that we're drawing inspiration from as we start to add pieces here and there to make our temporary house feel like a home.

P.S.  Sean and I spray painted this sheet three years ago.  How nauseatingly cute are we?
