There is something oddly comforting about moving back overseas and being welcomed into your new home by the same ugly as sin Drexel furniture you had in your previous homes in Oman, Israel and India.
Who am I kidding? No it's not. Especially when you're ambushed with the overwhelming amount of wall to wall furniture in every single room of your home in Crayola's new color shade, diarrhea brown.
Thankfully we received a bevy of pictures of our new home five months prior to our packout from Virginia, which left us with ample time to think about our designs and stock up on enough color to brighten up even the ugliest of rooms.
We are appreciative that we hit the jackpot this tour and have a beautiful home to decorate, a far cry from our first home in India. The landlord originally built the house for himself, so the appointments are quite extraordinary. From the intricate chandeliers and crown molding to the American style kitchen and spa-like master bathroom. We. Can't. Complain.
So come on in and take another tour of Casa de Perlman. We're slowly taking reservations!
