Hi everyone, I know i haven’t posted in quite a while. I’ve been catching up on other blogs & just taking a small break from it. I did purchase a few new things for my house & thought I should share them with you. Remember the sofa in my living room?
Although its a beautiful velvet, I never really loved how dark it is & have been wanting to get a light slipcovered one. I plan on using this room a lot for reading & blogging when the hubs has the tv on in the family room. I can’t concentrate with all that noise in the background! So I also want something deeper that I can curl up on. I looked at every slipcovered sofa I could find and decided on this one from Restoration Hardware
The Belgian track arm in the natural colored linen (which is a creamy white). One of the things I was concerned with as far as the RH slipcovered sofas are concerned is that the seat cushion tends to look a bit too “sloppy” for my taste so I opted out of the down fill on this one & went with the standard cushions…I happened to see one at the outlets with the standard fill & it looked more normal. Let’s hope I like it! Too bad they didn’t have one in the fabric I wanted….would have saved me ALOT of money!
I also decided to order two slipcovered chairs for the head of my dining room table to pull some of the lighter feel up there
While I was at it, we needed a new desk for Jays office. He started working from home about 8 months ago & so when we moved into this house I knew the office space would end up being his :(
I was used to having the office for myself, its where I paid bills,worked on payroll, etc. But for the most part it was just “pretty”. Now it has to be “pretty” & functional (for both of us) so I figured the French partners desk would be a good choice
There are drawers on both sides so he has his space & I have mine. This has already been delivered since it was not a custom order & it is working out great. I guess I should show you a glimpse of the office “before” & where it’s at now, although its far from finished.
Except with the arm on the other side. Im liking the darker fabric in here though, so i dont know yet, gonna keep looking. It has to be something comfy because this is where the dogs hang out all day while daddy works! Plus i love to curl up here as well, esp in the summer months where i get a perfect view of the pool & pond. We also need to get a pair of desk chairs…matching or his & hers???
