The Mr.'s favorite thing in a house is dark hardwood floors. When I say dark, I mean DARK. If it were up to him we would literally have lacquered black floors. While I also like the look of super dark hardwood floors, the fact that we have a yellow lab and I am constantly cleaning dust balls out of the corners, made me think going that dark was a bit impractical. I ended up choosing Minwax's Dark Walnut for our floor stain, and will be going over to the new house later this morning to see how it looks! We are making great progress over there, and I can not wait until we move in. Next week I will share some of our plans with you all both the long term projects and the immediate things we are currently tackling. If you don't follow me on instagram, you can find me @hauteindoorcouture where I have been/will be posting lots of house updates ;-)
Happy Friday you all!

Mom had new Dana Gibson for Stroheim Wallpaper installed in her dining room the other week and it's
crazy so her. The woman officially has 19 different patterns on her first floor! I have to admit it's totally over the top for me, but I like it so much better than the chunky stripes she and I had painted on the walls 12 years ago ;-)

Since we will not be able to move into our new house until after the 25th, we are forgoing Christmas decorating at the apartment. I did not see the point in unpacking all of our Christmas decorations just to pack them right back up the morning after Christmas. Plus we will be spending Christmas at Mom and Dad's house so it's not like we will be without Holiday Cheer! Next year it's game on, I am going to go all out, but for today here are a few of my favorite Christmas decorations I have been loving lately. Stay tuned next week for house updates, Moms new dining room wallpaper and a few other fun things!
