So it's pretty much official. We're going to be homeowners...again. If you didn't already know,we actually still own a home in Jacksonville, Florida. It was our first 'home', even though its a condo. (which is pretty much of what everything is down there) Someone said to me "It must be nice to have 2 homes. Its very House Hunter International of you." Well its not like we use the one in Jax. It works while we have a renter. And thankfully we have been blessed with one taking our place since we left Jacksonville over 2 years ago. It's a pretty scary thing to move forward and actually purchase a new home in Knoxville. But to pay a just a little more a month than we pay in rent right now, its the choice we're making. So after months of searching and searching, we have found our new home:
It was once waaaay out of our price range, but since its such a 'buyer's market' now, it was easy to negotiate. Plus the current owners have already moved to Indiana for jobs and were dying to sell it, so it worked out!
It's pretty large and although I'm uber excited about it, I've already started stressing about decorating. Since we've been married there has been a lot of red in our home. Well news flash, I'm over red. And have been for a while, but have been unable to do anything about it.
Here's the new palette I'm interested in:
My plan is to blog about my ideas over the next couple week's I'll show you what I have in mind and get your opinion!
Oh and PS - yea, those ARE plantation shutters. They're throughout the entire house! Squeal!
