Decoration Inspiration

 Part of the fun of moving to a new place is getting to decorate a new place, and I am so excited about getting to decorate my new home.  I've been hunting through all of my home decoration pins on pinterest for inspiration and I compiled a 4 page word document of all of the ideas I love.  I won't bore you with all 4 pages, it's a lot of pictures, but I've picked out a few that really cover the main points I love.

I have this weird desire for both white, light, and airy rooms and also for black walls.  I've picked out numerous pictures of both aesthetics, so I'm going to have to figure out how to combine these.  Also, oriental/Persian rugs - I'm in love with them and want to layer them all over my awesome wood floors like crazy - and art walls.  I have an art wall in my current apartment, so apparently a lot of those pictures are going to find a home on a new wall with similar neighbors.

I love the idea in this last photo of "hiding" the television within an art wall, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to give this a try.  I don't know that I can go for naked windows, so I'm thinking white sheer panels too.  You'll notice a lot of my inspiration pictures have the same mid-century modern style of furniture that is already abundant in my current apartment, and I love the teak wood and subdued furniture with the pops of color from the rugs and artwork.

I've also decided that I simply must invest in a bar cart.  Since I won't have a fireplace or mantle in the new place to use as a mounting site for my television, I plan to repurpose my buffet from the dining room as a tv stand.  This means the small bar set up I currently have on the buffet will be homeless and since I've always wanted a bar cart anyway....  I'm thinking gold!
