Heavy Nesting

I would like to take a break from my regularly scheduled wedding posts to blog about my latest obsession....nesting! Because, let's face it, as much as you (and I) may love wedding planning, sometimes a girl just needs a break and a time to focus on something new.

It all started this weekend when A and I started envisioning how we wanted our home to look. Since I already own a home that he will move into when we are married (more on that later). We decided to make it "ours" by furnishing it together with things we both loved. Let me tell you, finding things we both loved was a lot more easier said than done...While I love Andrew, this shopping excursion was definitely a lesson in compromise, balancing his love of contemporary style with my affection for all things classic. In the end though, it was nice to hear his opinions and to see him invest in what we are building together. Anyway, I am sure you just want to see the pictures, so here goes...

It all started with this bedroom set.... It will go in our guest bedroom(minus the tall dresser and the square mirror).


And these are the linens! I bought them right off our our registry at Crate and Barrel, because I simply could not wait!


I fell in love with these Sammy Vases...They will look perfect on the dresser and will pull all of the colors of the linens together.

Since we decided that we liked the green best of all of the colors in the linens, we chose this lamp to really draw it out.


And, this throw should also help to that end...
What do you think? Would you like to stay in our guest bedroom?
