New Sofa- feels like being a grown up

My mum and dad have very generously offered to buy us a lovely new sofa for our house-warming gift. Thanks mum and dad!!!

The best part is that it's a sleeper, so our future Hotel RhoScho guests will be super comfy. yay!

Removeable wallpaper- genius!

Sherwin Williams has come up with removeable wall-paper. Brilliant! Perfect for apartment living. We've ordered 5 swatches to decide which one we want to use in our kitchen.

Kitchen idea

I am thinking of adding some pattern to the kitchen by using contact paper in the back splash area. I got this idea from Lotta Jansdotters's new home book. I used photoshop to paste a print in place. As we're only renting, we can't really do anything super permanent.

Signed our lease!

I've been reading Apartment Therapy, which I've really enjoyed the how-to of taking your house and making it a home. Jacob and I are working on a sketch book to choose colors, layouts and special art projects, which we are going to start next week and document here.

Here are photos of our living room, yard and kitchen. They are all a blank slate to play with.
