Home Sweet...Middle Earth (or, new house inspiration!)

Hello lovely followers, it's been far too long, hasn't it? Needless to say, a lot has happened since last November including a new job, starting my own company, and moving to a new house. Although this blog has gotten a little dusty, these huge changes have inspired me to start pursuing my love of creativity, design, and writing so I hope you will keep reading as I have big plans for D + D.

 Now that we have much more space (that actually belongs to us) I have been obsessed with decorating and furnishing our home in a way that represents our style and interests. We have slowly but surely been purchasing new furniture and decor to replace the older stuff we had in our small apartment, which led me straight back to another "Home Sweet" design.

This living room takes its inspiration from three really awesome 50's and 60's inspired Lord of the Rings "travel prints" by artists Steve Thomas and Timothy Anderson (who both incidentally also have tons of other awesome sci-fi/fantasy/comic prints). Since I plan on recreating this in my own living room, I used the wood floors and muted color palette that already exists on the walls and window treatments. I definitely plan on doing a photo shoot once I finish organizing everything.
