~ hillary's moving to chicago

If I have any loyal followers, like borderline stalker-type followers, they may remember my posts about my daughter preparing for her move to New York last December. Well that never happened. Sometimes it's hard to predict the future, and as a self-described obsessive planner, this doesn't sit well with me. I like to plan the future. I like to plan like nobody's business. You have no idea what kind of planning I'm talking about. PLAN and ORGANIZE = MY FAVORITE THINGS.
For a multitude of reasons, my Hillary did not and is not moving to New York. She is moving to Chicago! I could not be happier about this, except of course that I'll miss her terribly. But won't we have fun decorating her apartment? Why yes, yes we will.

First off, she's announced that she will be taking her framed Hermes scarf that is currently above her bed. Fine. That will be our inspiration.

When we were in Chicago looking for an apartment, we found this couch at Crate & Barrell. "Floor model" on the ticket was my dream come true. Yes, it's white. But it's outdoor Sunbrella fabric and it has stood the test of time sitting in the Chicago store for the past year or so, so it should be fine in Hillary's apartment. (here)



These pillows are from Wisteria... the colors are perfect with the whimsical colors of the Hermes scarf... (here)

Hillary would love this coffee table, but she will have to ask Santa... (here)

Of course, the apartment is not perfect. This MC light fixture over the kitchen counter would be a darling replacement for what's currently hanging... but we have to be realistic. Neither of us excel in being realistic. (here) Hillary has been collecting a few MC pieces in the parchment check for her apartment, and they should fit in quite nicely...

Found this on SALE at Wisteria!

 The aqua is perfect...

We need a rug. That's on the list.
Also, shelving for handbags, shoes, etc.

Hillary has this bar cart on her wish list. (hereIt's a process, isn't it? It will be fun to record the evolution of the apartment...


The move-in is coming quick! Pics will follow.. 
Wait until you see the bedding!

Personally I'd choose Chicago over NYC any day. Looks like you'll have great fun decorating her first place. Can't wait till I get to share that w/my daughter someday.

You sound EXACTLY like me…and Hillary and my Holly love the same things and have the same taste. Holly is in New Orleans…that is a fun place to visit just like Chicago will be! LOVED this post!

Looks like you two have it all figured out. Love the choices. Will be eager to see the photos of her apartment.
