New Home

New Home Chicago

So, the big news is: A few weeks ago, hubby and I put an offer in on a home! After over six months of searching we finally found the perfect home for us.  Our new home is just one mile south of our current apartment in Logan Square, the Chicago neighborhood where we have lived since we moved here almost 6 years ago. Having lived in the same apartment for the last six years, we’ve gotten quite comfortable where we are.  Moving will certainly be a pain in the butt. Exciting, but also a lot of work.

I waited this long to officially post about it because we’re still going through the loan process.  Even though they’ve excepted our offer, our loan isn’t locked down yet, so the deal is not yet 100% finalized.   Once our loan comes through our closing date is May 7th. Almost exactly one month away! Our plan is to get through the National Stationery Show first (hubby will be joining me for the first few days in NYC to help me set up) and then move at the end of May / early June.

In the meantime I’ve been spending my  free time between my NNS prep pinning interior design ideas (HERE) and researching  furniture ideas for our new home (HERE.) After apartment living for the last 15+ years its exciting to think about making substantial purchases on furniture that will live with us for a very long time.

I’ve been loving the sectionals at Room and Board:

York Sectional

Industrial Wood Furniture from Etsy, Dot and Bo and Urban Wood Goods (in Chicago!)

Industrial coffee table dot and bo Wood Table

Mid century modern chairs:

Accent Chairs

Some of my favorites are from (here and here), Room and Board and Crate and Barrel.

And Vintage Kilim Turkish Rugs on Ebay and Etsy:

Not to say that none of our current furniture will make it to our new home, but we are desperately in need of some upgrades.  I will keep you updated!
