Ryan and I are looking at moving in together after the new year. Let's not even talk about how scared I am to take such a big step.
I'm SO sick of looking at Craigslist and realty websites. I've been stalking streets with Google Maps, trying to discern if the neighborhood is "sketchy," and whether or not the house in question has a fenced back yard.
Of course, not being the most practical of people, I'm already dreaming of how I'm going to decorate our new place. Let's keep in mind that Ryan is way more opinionated about decor than any sane man has a right to be.
So, here's my dilemma: Do I go colorful or neutral? Because I am drawn to both! I know, I know, keep big things like furniture neutral and then you can change it up with accessories, but who really has an extra closet for things like throw pillow covers? Also, Ryan is drawn to what he dubs modern, while I like a mix of old and new. So, some inspiration photos from both sides of the color argument.

There's so much to love about all of these rooms! I'm instantly drawn to bold colors and pattern, but neutral rooms are the ones I find myself thinking about again and again. I also have a mild obsession for anything old. The more falling-apart, the better. I also have a dog who makes keeping anything clean impossible.
Help! Where do I begin!?
