New Flat Nesting

As we get ready to move back to San Francisco, I've been thinking a lot about our flat and how I want it to look and feel. One of the lovely things about moving places is being able to start with a fresh design. Of course I'll make use of the furniture, frames and pillows we already have but maybe in different ways, and then I can fill the gaps with pretty new things (Pottery Barn, here I come!). Not sure about any of you but I feel a bit scared of colour...I always tend to stick with neutrals and I would love to be a bit bolder, even if it's just pops of colour here and there (like that bed below with the tangerine throw). A new design could even be about the way you arrange furniture in a room or how you place little nick-nacks on the dresser...a little change is always healthy. Here are a few things and projects I want to incorporate in our new place...

I really want a nice bed frame. It gives the bedroom a focal point and makes the bed seem even cosier. That gold gallery frame collection is also a fabulous addition.
I really want to use vintage furniture, it adds such a nice contrast to new, clean furniture. And I'd love to have a plush white loveseat or couch to sink into at the end of the day.
I am beyond excited about this idea of using maps of cities we've traveled to inside a frame with a picture of us in that city. It's such a nice way to travel through time.
If at all possible, I'd love to have a work space at home where I can spend time blogging. Just a small, clean space with a table, flowers and my laptop.
One of the things I feel our place lacks now is original artwork. I would love to find a few affordable, eye-catching pieces to hang in the hallways.
