Now that word has spread about our impending return to DC this summer, the most common question that we get asked is will we return to our place in DC, or try something new…or – gasp! – move to suburbia. Well…I don’t see suburbia on the horizon just yet…but we’re still on the fence whether to return to our place, a new-build condo, that despite it’s spaciousness, we foolishly thought we would “grow into” with two bedrooms. HA! We’ve outgrown it already, but love it nonetheless. The big upside is that it’s already been laboriously furnished by yours truly, so we would just have to pack our bags and begin living day one.
But part of us is tempted to try something new – perhaps a new neighborhood like Capitol Hill or Georgetown, perhaps a stand-alone house? One one hand, there is the allure of a yard for diplo-baby, on the other hand, let’s be honest and admit that neither diplo-husband nor I are qualified to do any kind of yard work, so perhaps a nice city park would be a better fit for the sanity of everyone involved.
In any case, as we continue with our fence-time, I always have one eye open for future design insipirations. Below are some pics from the Elle Decor spread on Michelle Smith’s apartment, which is, it should be noted also only two bedrooms despite a Milly-baby in tow. Milly designed perhaps one of my favorite dresses that I’ve ever owned, which continues to give me good diplo-wear, and her living space is very much in the same vein. Wouldn’t it be fun to decorate all over again?
