Smoke Detectors & Vaulted Ceilings

So, it happened. I knew it was only a matter of time. The battery of the smoke detector in our bedroom died. And so the chirping began. At 2:00 in the morning. Why does that always happen in the middle of the night--in the room with the vaulted ceilings? Of course, we don't own a ladder, so I had to stand on Jeremy's shoulders. I didn't know what I was doing and accidentally pressed the test button, so that every single alarm in the entire house went off.  I could hardly reach, but I was able to pull out the battery--which we all know does not stop the chirping.  (Remember the Friends episode with Phoebe and the smoke detector?!) Luckily, we had a battery, and  we were able to make the switch. You know, you never know when your high school cheerleading skills are going to come in handy.  And, I'm just sure that Jeremy really appreciated my, "Ready one two's" at two in the morning. But, in spite of the three ring circus in our bedroom last night, I still LOVE vaulted ceilings. Check out these lovelies. 

P.S. Remind me to buy a ladder when we move...

Battle of the Beds | Four Poster Beds

So...I haven't blogged in a while. As Stella says, "I got distracted." (For two (or more) weeks...story of my life.) The good news? I have made EVERY single decision for the new house. Of course, that doesn't include interior design, just all of the other stuff. I'm sure there will be plenty of time to lose sleep think over the interior. It's moving fast, and we're super excited!

So, speaking of the interior, something super annoying has happened: Jeremy all of a sudden has opinions on decor. I'm like, "Dude, this is my thing. I don't go around your clinic telling you what to do with your patients. Stella needs a four poster bed in her room.  Who cares if it blocks your line of vision, and since when did you start using the phrase line of vision?" I know. He's ridiculous. I knew you'd agree with me. So, let's look at some of inspiration pics for Stella's bed, shall we?

[so cheap, so easy]: Emily Henderson's Dowel Coatrack

Have you guys seen this? I love it, and I think that even I could handle this. (And, by I, I actually mean me. I could actually do it myself, and not just have the idea then beg Jeremy to do it for me.) I mean, this is right up my alley: a project that entails just looking at the pictures, no reading instructions on this one, folks. Supplies needed are four six-foot dowels, paint, tape, and rope. Paint the dowels, then tie them together. Really.  Check out the full post here.

Are these not the cutest?? The wallpaper, the color palettes, the furniture--they're everything.  No more words are even one bit necessary. Enjoy.
