For a while now, Zach and I have been trying to decide whether or not we're going to continue living in West Hollywood. Around our house, the questions have been: Should we move to Marina del Rey to be closer to Zach's work? Should we move east to be in a less-expensive area? Should we move out of Los Angeles altogether (so we can become hippies and raise chickens?)
But this week, we finally made our decision. I got a job at ban.do, which is within walking distance from our current apartment. Right now, it just doesn't make sense for us to pick up and leave.
It's amazing how much freedom this decision has given us. Without realizing it, I think we were living in uncomfortable instability. Now, with a solid decision to stay, we can put down roots again and start making plans.
First on the list of to-dos? Painting our bedroom. It's been a boring white for the last year and a half and I'm sick of it. Since we're planning to stay here for a while longer, I can now paint it to my heart's content.
I'm thinkin' I'm gonna do something a little crazy (like Emily Henderson did in her guest bedroom.) Painting on only half the wall seems very chic, but in an unexpected way. And, I think a two-toned wall in a navy blue and white would be a nice contrast to our gold comforter. Right?
