My college roommate and her fiancee just bought their fist house in Richmond. They actually closed 3 days after Tom and I closed on our house, so we’ve been sharing stories as we both enter the thralls of home ownership.
Siobhan sent me a picture of their house before they moved in and from it, I was able to create a line drawing as the focal piece of their moving announcements! Remember when I wrote about mint being the new black? Well, Siobhan and I are both IN LOVE with the tealy/seafoam/mint color craze right now. We kept the drawing and body of the text in a light gray ink and allowed the headline, OUR FIRST HOME, really pop with the teal. This was perfect because she also just sent me a photo of their freshly painted front door…perfectly coordinating with the teal in the announcements.
Can’t wait to see their new place in person!
