Making our House a Home (Part II)

Oh, the joys of living in corporate housing!! I'm starting to get a little stir crazy looking at the same walls all day, luckily one wall is full of windows and a nice patio view of Lake Union. So, while I do miss having more than 1 suitcase full of clothes/shoes to choose from, I get to see gorgeous lake views and watch kayaks, yachts, and boat planes all day.

As our move-in date draws closer, we've kicked up our furniture search. So far we've been able to find many beautiful things... but we are quickly realizing that unique, quality pieces can easily break the bank. And let me tell you... my boyfriend has some expensive taste! Oooh-wee....

I blame fellow blogger and real-life friend (basically like a big sister to me) Sexy and the Chi for introducing me to Restoration Hardware... and thus causing me to introduce the brand to my boyfriend. I feel like everything in their store is speaking to his inner life force. Locally, we have fallen in love with the pieces carried in Henredon & Schoener (located in Bellevue, WA). Honestly, that store is real life design porn! We both find ourselves being able to stay in there for hours... but the prices are STEEP, so we're always brought to a quick reality check.

Below is a little mash up of some of our favorites pieces so far...
