Urban Cozy

We’ve been in our place for 2 ½ years and will probably move out in a few, but I am still working on decorating. And probably will forever. I am really hesitant with large purchases (both in size and $$) and am intimidated by blank walls. But I finally decided to invest in two large Chicago pieces and have decided that the look/feel we (me) are going for is urban cozy. Does that make sense? Because Doug has no idea what I mean. But as long as I know, that's all that matters right? haha

I like things to be meaningful and personal. And I want to embrace the few years that we have in the city because I know we’ll end up growing old in the suburbs. Ha, that sounds way more depressing than I meant it to be. I loved this Chicago neighborhoods subway art canvas on etsy for awhile and contemplated on how I could do it myself. But I knew that it wouldn’t look as good, would still be costly, and time consuming...so I just said let’s get it! You gotta do a cost benefit analysis sometimes. Ha, that's the accountant in me talking, sorry. And I have one more Chicago piece coming in a few weeks! *aaaah* I’m slowly filling up the empty spaces. What do you think?
