wishlist for our home // pops of color

i am so bored with the place we live in…meh area, old cabinets, ugly carpet, horrible natural lighting, horizontal metal blinds and the worst ever on the planet wall-papered bathroom…not to mention, we’re renters.  which means we can’t do a whole lot to our place unless we ask first.  in the next couple of weeks, we plan to sit down and come up with a list of “upgrades” that might behoove the owner in the event that we move out and others move in.  in the meantime, i’ve been searching etsy for pieces of furniture, vintage knick knacks and other wacky finds that might add a bit of character to our humble {slightly out-dated} abode.  the collage above includes a few of my faves…enjoy!

  1. Hey at least they aren’t vertical blinds! After my husband and I gutted a kitchen, gutted a bathroom, sold a house at a huge loss, and are now getting ready to remodel two MORE bathrooms, I say enjoy the lack of responsibility (and renovation) inherent to the renter state of being.

    • oh, well…we have vertical blinds in our bedroom. horrible. anyway, i suppose it’s one of those “grass is greener” things. i know a shit ton of people who own, but would give their left arm to be a renter. i’m just dreaming of an older home with wood floors and arched doorways…lots of light and bright white walls. someday…

  2. awww that mexican blanket is just like the one i found when we went thrifting. i bet you could find one near your place!

    cute stuff tho. and yes, being a renter can suck. And i just remembered i totally had a dream about buying a house… WEIRD!!!!
