C A M P O U T



so we got impatient. our official move in day is supposed to be tuesday, but we already had the keys! so that was torture. so after a yum vegetarian meal at Bulan, we headed over to the new place with blankets and that 60's film Blow Up - which by the way is totally amazing and beautiful - and lit up the christmas lights for our first night at home. i woke up all giddy to watch the sunrise out our big huge windows and watched the cars drive over the bridge. so peaceful. i know, i'm getting all sentimental on you! but it's such a special time for me in life, so just let me be cheesy for a second ok?

the other night we went to The Living Room - oh which reminds me, I need to show you our new couch we got from there! - yep, we pulled the trigger on this good lookin tweed couch...



ok ok back to The Living Room. we went there for drinks and a little showing of an interior designer at the store, erika winters. we put our names in the drawing to win a free interior consultation and voila! we won! what perfect timing!

Blow Up is such a wonderful movie. You've inspired me to have my own little movie night.

What coincidence--I'm across the country in freezing western NY, living vicariously through you in my warm hometown (congrats on the beautiful loft!), and about to show that film to my students on Wednesday. I hope they enjoy it as much as you.

oh i love this! my bf and i did the same thing when we moved into our place a few months ago - new homes are just too exciting to wait for furniture/moving! your first night at your loft sounds amazing - xmas lights and sunrises!

cute sofa! BUT don't buy any more things because you interior designer can get you a design discount...just hold off for your consult! :)

Oh, this looks sooo familiar. My husband and I recently moved into a new house and enjoyed a similar moment of excitement (and strangely, peace) before the chaos of the move. Enjoy your new abode...it looks stunning!! Large open windows are truly the ultimate luxury! (And btw, I am sharing a bit of my work to improve our space on my blog, www.hilaryinspired.com. Stop by when you get a chance!)
