I like to keep our living space rustic, making sure to keep the super feminine details to a minimum so that Adam feels like it's his home, too. Clearly I like natural colors and wood textures.
We don't have a very big decor budget, but I've found a lot of these pieces at craft shows, Etsy shops, and lucky for me...Adam is pretty handy and actually built the shelves hanging on the wall.
Right now we're renting a small house, but we're hoping to take the leap and buy our first home once I've started grad school (fingers crossed that will be in August 2017). I used to think that it wasn't important for me to make our rental home "ours" since well..it's not, haha! But we've been here for almost 2 years (and will probably be here for another 1-2) so I've finally taken it upon myself to try to make our home ours.
Do you think it's important to make your house a home?
