Our New Place...So Far

Here are some pics of the Ballard home-San Antonio edition. Cole and I used to live in an apartment that was about 450 square feet, so this place feels HUGE! It even has a one-car garage and a half bath downstairs. We like it a lot so far. I'm trying to make a gallery-style collage of frames like the ones pictured below, but I'm having the darndest time trying to measure it all out. Anyone ever done this before? Curse that Martha Stewart and her effortless style!




Messy loft


View from the loft and my sweet, lanky hubby zonked out


Master bath w/ a big tub!


Bedroom w/ our brand new mattress. We still haven't gotten a comforter that fits, but no matter, it's like 90 degrees when we go to bed at night; who needs a comforter??

My idea: Trace the frames that you are going to use onto paper, cut them out, and then you can tape them on the wall to figure out how you want the placement to go.

what a cute space you have to work with! i love the frame idea, i totally clipped that page out of the pottery barn magazine. i was going to use blue paint tape to map everything out but haven't tried it yet so if you come up with an easy way let me know!

Your new place looks sweet!! I think the collage idea is awesome...but I too would be lost at how to go about it! Good luck! Thanks for the pix, they give me hope that one day I won't be surrounded by cinderblock walls. :)
