Interior Decorating

This weekend, hubby and I will be moving into our first house. Granted, its a rental, but I can't tell you how excited I am to both be out of an apartment and to have my first very own house. I'll be even more ecstatic when we actually own it and can do whatever we want with it.

The house has three bedrooms and two baths. Bedrooms is used loosely as one of the bedrooms doesn't have a closet, so technically it can't be considered a bedroom. Can you tell I watch too much HGTV? It is 1600 square feet and sits on a 1 1/2 acre of land and includes a car port. Its a cute little country house located right next to a hay field. Here are some pictures the owner has sent us:




Hubby has assigned me the difficult task of picking out a theme and color scheme with which to decorate our house. Actually, I've been dreaming of this for quite some time. Thus why I love watching all the great shows on HGTV. I'm a little obsessed with my dream home. The problem is that there are too many themes that I love. I've compiled some ideas here to help me figure out what I want. Any input you guys have would be greatly appreciated. Especially if you know a thing or two about interior design (which is way more than I know), maybe you can give me some ideas.

Note: The pictures are just ideas. Not necessarily the exact thing we'll buy. Also, hubby hasn't seen these yet to give his input, so I hope he likes these as much as I do. We usually have the same ideas about things, so I'm sure he will.

It looks like a sweet place! I love the massive fireplace, it is beautiful. I prefer vintage European, though the other two are nice too!

I'm torn between traditional Elegance and vintage European. Maybe the vintage will go more with the look of the exterior of the home. I watch a lot of HGTV too :) Sometimes the hubby banes me for awhile so I don't go making wholesale changes to the house. What a fun project for you!
