Movin' On!

Have you ever moved to a new (to you) house?
Have you scratched your head and wondered 'How am I gonna' make THIS work there?'?

Have you had nightmares about what you need to buy for the new place?
I have a plan to help you with that!

I hinted in my first post last month that there were some big things ahead this year...
things that spurred me to come out of my 'Blogging Break'. (missed that post? it's here

Mom and I have been working on something since October
that will take a huge leap forward at the end of March.
So huge that EVERYTHING will change for us...
we're moving on into our future!

What's that? You wanna' know what this huge thing is?
Oh, okay, sure.... it's.....
After relocating from Orange County to the Temecula area at the end of March, 
we'll be taking on the utterly exciting task of decorating a brand.new.house!

We've got Pinterest boards and file folders and brains overflowing with ideas.
We've got color palettes and landscaping ideas and wall treatments inhabiting our dreams.
Our plans mix Mom's style with MY style, to create 'our' style...
which is a little bit farmhouse, and a little bit beach house,
a little bit contemporary, and a little bit industrial, a little bit rustic, and a little bit feminine!
Here's where homewardFOUNDdecor comes in:

I'm going to be sharing our process of
* making design choices for the house
and what inspires us as we mix our two styles
* deciding what furniture to KEEP and what to let go
* how to re-think, re-design, and re-use items in new spaces
* giving an empty, new builder home a vintage vibe with easy projects

 My goal is to inspire you and give you ideas for your OWN home - 
whether you move to a new location or you just rearrange what you have where you are!

Yes, we'll be buying a few new things...
but our plan is to re-use, re-purpose, and re-design as much as we can.
It's about inspiration, and ideas, and hands-on fun.
You've seen my Mom's house in the Thrifty Tropical Weekend Makeover series,
and now you'll be able to see how we totally change the look for the new house!

We're calling it 'Project HOMEward'...
and hope you'll join us here each week... we've got a lot to share with you!

(Yes, I'll still be sharing my seasonal decor ideas and projects, too!)
Coming up next: the options/finishes we chose
and the first thing we bought for the house!


  1. Oh, what fun you and your mom are going to have...and are already having! What a nice floor plan, Deb. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you do and choose. Enjoy every moment!
