Since we had our little guy, things had to change in the living room. The brass and glass coffee table needed to be replaced [we will be listing it on St. Louis craigslist asap] for obvious reasons and we needed a more comfortable sofa. We ultimately decided on the West Elm Henry sectional and bought it sight unseen. Brave move. So far we love it but it is awfully staticky. I hate getting shocked so much. Oh well. It is leaps & bounds more comfortable and practical for our new lifestyle with an almost
toddler teetering around.
I also decided that the new furniture would best fit the room in a new arrangement. In addition to the sectional, over the course of 10 months we bought a new rug from Rugs USA [during a 60% off sale], a new coffee table from Serena and Lily [which I scored on a super-sale and I think is no longer available], and new "art" in the form of framed Instagram poster pics from Prinstagram and a mural from Urban Outfitters [which I also scored on a super-sale but it seems like it is priced higher again].
Something still is not right with the room and I think I know what it is. I definitely want a new round coffee table [almost bought an awesome vintage one off of craigslist] and while I adore the Instagram prints, I often question myself if they're too busy and boxy. The styling of the room is almost non-existent and I need to work on that. Someday I'll get around to that.
Since it's my hobby, things are bound to change. [Love you, Dave!] My husband sure is a peach to put up with me.
Oh, and I don't think I ever mentioned that we painted the living room a shade of white by Benjamin Moore. I think it was called "Smoke." I needed some calm in my life this summer and white seemed to bring that--or so I hoped! I really do love it.
So that's where we're at right now. Like I said, come back next week and things could be different.
It may be a sickness....haha.
