last wednesday was the grand opening of the new Erie Bank on 10th & Peach in Erie. we did the furniture and helped in coordinating some of the finishes in their “Private Banking Area” so it was pretty exciting to be in there and see everything all together, knowing that i put that together! we actually had very few problems on the whole job, which is always a relief, and the opening seemed to go really well. so far it looks like everyone working there really likes everything, and we received a lot of compliments on the Private Banking Area and their wall color choices.

my friend kristen and i have been discussing the possibility of moving out and getting an apartment. the thought excites me a LOT. i love living at home with my parents (hey, free food, mostly free lodging…i usually get away with them doing my laundry, and my parents are of course oh-so-fun!) but i feel that after 4 years of college and going on 2 years of full-time work, i could be ready for this. i’m dying to fully decorate, design, & furnish an entire “home”. i want to sit in a room other than my bedroom and be able to say “i did this”. i want to sit in a room free from clutter, but full of inspiration.

kristen and i took a trip around “downtown” erie to see if there were any cool looking old houses for rent. we also stumbled upon some renovated apartments that are supposedly pretty nice (and seem decently priced). next step: who knows. maybe call places, see how serious we are!

i’d love to furnish my house in stuff from this website. who new crate & barrel had a more modern, hip company? one of my favorite pieces that i see in a lot of magazines lately around people’s dining tables is this chair:  (Hippie Dining Chair)


ok, so that isnt the exact chair but it’s pretty similar. here are the chairs i first started loving from Met Home magazine: (chairs are by Hans Wegner from DennisMiller.com)


i hope someday i can furnish my home with all the designer pieces i’ve always dreamed about!
