We moved into our house at the end of January and six months later, we still haven’t, in the words of Dorinda Medley, made it nice.
If I had my way (and the wallet that went with it), I would have the whole places decorated and done. But unfortunately for us all, furniture is expensive and creating a space that you truly love takes time. Yes, I know patience is a virtue. I just wish I had it.
After a couple months, I bit the bullet and bought a new couch. It’s a gorgeous modern but still comfy sofa with chaise from Interior Define (you may have seen it on snapchat last week) . It came in last week and I am obsessed. As a quick side note: it’s an awesome company to order from. The couches are all custom made, they have tons of fabrics, they are really high quality and there is free shipping. But anyways… that’s about all that’s going on in our living room right now.
With the biggest buy out of the way, I’m trying to get a game plan together on what to do with the rest of the room and then slowly work through finding, buying and ultimately, creating a space that’s homey, comfortable but also looks put together. I’m going for a mix (aren’t we all). I little mid-century modern, a little classic and a little boho. Most importantly I want it to fit our family and be livable. That’s a lot of boxes to check. Wish me luck.
Since I got good feedback on my master bedroom inspiration post (although I still haven’t done much in that space either… wah wah), I figured I’d share what’s inspiring me as I tackle the living room. When (or if) it gets finished, I’ll be sure to share pics.
