So, the beau is moving into my fabulous palace I call home at the end of the month, and talks of rearranging and new projects have been flying! The possibilities!
3) Not one, but TWO new guest rooms
4) Re-finishing dressers to give them a funky new life
But, as we have a lot of furniture-merging to do, with not a lot of space to do it in, tape measurers** and creative thinking have come into play. Enter: Roomle.*** Roomle is a website that allows you to make floorplans to plan your furnishings and layouts and share with friends! Good-bye post-it-note-drawn-rooms, hello 3-D models!! (Did I mention you can make it 3D? Because you can make it 3D.) See below:
This has Katie, (my cousin, bff, and home-decor/room-rearranging partner-in-crime... yes, all those things, all in one!) written all over it. Please, Katie, rejoice with me. Rejoice!!!****
I will admit that it took me a while (and many oddly-placed walls) to get the hang of it, though it's fairly user-friendly. The website does have tutorial videos, which I refuse to use. Because I live life without instruction. I will also say that they are a touch lacking on the furniture options & variety front. I will allow this, for a while. But then there will be hell to pay. Hell, consisting of me shaking my fist at the computer screen. And let me tell you, that is a mighty, mighty hell. But as for now, most of the furnishings are erring on the side of "modern" and "cat-lover."*****
Has anyone else discovered Roomle? Anyone wanna share their plans?
*Oh My God This Is So Freakin' Awesome
**"Measurers" is not a Chrome-recognized word? I call BS on this one. If "measurer" is a word, then it's plural should also be a word! Get your shit together, Chrome.
***Credit where credit is due: the beau found this website. He comes in handy.
****She has a label on her blog just for me!!!! See???!??!?! Love.
*****Seriously? Just cat forts??? Where's a dog bowl or bed? No fish tanks? Haters.
