So, I'm doing this... Apartment Therapy's The Style Cure

You can sign up here.

Apartment Therapy is doing another Style Cure challenge, and I'm jumping on board this time. We've been in our new house for almost five months and my will to decorate has, well, stalled. A lack of a budget, no real direction, and an increasingly mobile infant has kept me from making my new home my dream home.

Enter Apartment Therapy, on a big, sparkly, white unicorn (you know you want to ride one) to save me. The Style Cure is just what I needed to kick me in the ass.

So here I am, Day 4, to show you my progress.

I completed the interview, chose my room, and pinned my little heart out.

Here's the room I chose in its current state...

Don't judge me.

Lovely, right?

The pile of papers, baby toys, disheveled rug. I bet you're thinking "Don't you dare change a thing!" No?

No, you're not. Because that room looks like hobos live in it. Nothing against hobos, but it's embarrassing.

I need to transform this space into a combo home office and play area for the she-beast. Not that she plays with those toys. A plastic water bottle is much more entertaining.

Here's a little of what is inspiring me, in case you're too lazy to check out my Pinterest board.

I love the idea of pillows on the floor. I need to be comfy when I read.

I want to create a cozy space to play and snuggle with the she-beast (as if she would want to snuggle) and get some work done. A space that doesn't scream "KIDS HAVE TAKEN OVER! LONG LIVE THE SUGAR HIGH!"

So here I go. Got to clean. Got to sell some sh*t. Got to get more coffee.

Sh*ts and Giggles,
