Home Renos, Agent Carter & Editing Stuff

The last two weeks I was a slacker. Didn’t get any editing done, so yesterday I plopped myself into my desk chair and combed through a pretty fat chapter.

Cut it down by more than 1,600 words! It was a good day.

Meanwhile, I’ve been doing renovations on a new townhome I bought back in November–nope, still haven’t moved in. It’s a matter of funds, which tend to trickle in over time. I hope to move in sometime during March, though. Until then, I work on what I can.

The past couple of weeks me and my dad have been working on switching out all the light fixtures in the townhome for new ones I picked out and purchased. Take a look:

Lights Mix 2-1


I really just wanted to update the whole place, and I think these light fixtures add a very modern-contemporary vibe.

As for the rest of the space, well, I’m very eclectic by nature. I like antiques and vintage and retro furniture and accessories, but I also like more contemporary things, as well. I think my home will be a true reflection of this. My Instagram kinda shows this, as well.

Here are some concept boards I put together, showing more or less how some of my rooms will look like:

My First Place - Bedroom (small) My First Place - Living Room (small)

I’ve changed my mind on a few of the pieces on these boards since I made them, but the overall concepts will still be pretty close to the original. Soon enough, I’m planning on buying these materials for my floors and countertops, as well:

It’s been fun, being my own client!

Meanwhile, I’ve been watching Marvel’s new TV show Agent Carter, which I’m actually enjoying quite a bit. It is a great example of dieselpunk, afterall. πŸ˜‰ Hayley Atwell is as captivating as ever, and it’s been interesting exploring more of the Marvel universe. Maybe I’ll blog about it sometime. As for tonight, I’m going to work on editing another scene. Then it’s back to the weekly grind…

As for my WIP snippets, I’m not sure I’ll keep posting a bunch of those here, but if you’d still like to read some I’ll be participating in Dieselpunk.org’s8 Sentence Sunday” for the foreseeable future. πŸ™‚

That’s all for now, folks!

  1. Ah, interiors…! Once considered going in that career direction myself, but figured early that dream and I might not be the best fit. (It’s not you, fancy decoration, it’s me!) Still enjoy gazing upon the elements, though. ^_^


  2. I love the lamp with the ring!!!

    I renovated my appartment a couple of years ago and last year I bought a lot of new things. Spent a lot of money, but now my apartment is so lovely (ok, I say it myself ;-))
    I think decoreting your house according to your taste is one of the most satifying things to do πŸ™‚


  3. You’re an Agent Carter fan, too?! When I saw the ads I just had to watch. It is classic dieselpunk! I may even buy the episodes. You know the saying: keep the old decorations and buy the new DVDs. πŸ™‚
