Love This Book!

I just got my copy today of Fifi O' Neill's book Romantic Prairie Style. It is so beautiful and exactly what I was looking for to inspire me in decorating our new home. It is filled with wonderful ideas and gorgeous pictures. I highly recommend it. I just can't seem to put it down!

Settling In

It has been a very long few months but I am happy to report we are officially in our new home!! It feels so good to finally be here, boxes and all. It has only been a week but we are slowly settling in, unpacking and hunting for furniture to fill this large empty house. While my studio will be an ongoing project I plan on setting up a temporary space in the house to get the business back up and running very soon!

I had to share my absolute favorite new addition. This French Farmhouse dining table and bench. It seats up to 12 and just needs some chairs and a big bucket of dried lavender.

Very rustic and just what I had been looking for. It sits in front of a huge window seat overlooking fresh Rosemary bushes and beautiful fruit trees. I will have to share those soon! The dining room has hardwood floors so we decided to keep them and continue it into the living room.

I also love this built in hutch. For some reason everything here is painted a dark glossy chocolate brown. . but that will change soon. Picture a vintage white and the shelves filled with pretty things! We have many projects to do in this house and while I know it will take time I am enjoying doing things just as we want them. I also plan on sharing the transformations along the way. The house has very high ceilings and was built in 1915. It is just brimming with possibilities!

Now back to unpacking.
Look for Noelle Garrett Designs to reopen within the next week!

~Have a wonderful day!~
