Yesterday was an excellent day! By chance, I spotted the sofa of my dreams. An antique French Provincial kind. Wasn’t looking for it but it came looking for me (kinda like shopping for clothes, I’m SURE you can relate). Some things are meant for one another don’t you think? And the cross paths are always when you least expect it.
My husband was on a flight back home so I couldn’t consult his opinion. I usually don’t make huge home decor decisions like this w/o his OK. It’s mutual, you know? But it was screaming my name so loud and clear. Perhaps, I fell in love and couldn’t resist the urge. So I gave it a home. Wait until you see it, you will clearly understand why I was thinking irrationally. Isn’t this what love does to you?
Luckily, he was OK w/ my buy. We have similar taste and style, that’s the good part.
So now the game plan is to sell our set of couch which my husband custom designed, built, and upholster himself. It’s been a few good yrs so it’s time for us to depart. You can see a glimpse of the loveseat below. Very modern w/ clean lines.
Our color scheme was red and gold. Yes, my husband made all those decorative pillows and the gold organza curtains too! Our home is full of diy’s to the max!
We are currently transitioning our color scheme to blue, gray, + white. A livelier color scheme. You can see a tiny glimpse of our blue accent wall in the first picture. Plus, our style has shifted a little. I am obsessed w/ the modern vintage look- Parisian + Mid Century Modern. Parisian influenced after my visit to Paris. Reminds me of old romance combined w/ great style. Mid Century Modern influenced b/c my husband loves this style. The goal now is to combine our two loves.
The 2nd part of our game plan is to reupholster the Provincial sofa to a velvet blue/gray. This will have to fall into the hands of the husband. Yes, he has major sewing skillz! Thanks to his humble upbringing and watching his mom sew as a child. Unfortunately, he is busy as a bee so this project will take months and months to complete.
I will surely document the process and can’t wait to see the outcome and share w/ you this little crazy home decor journey of ours!
Like a great romance saga, this is ‘to be continued…’
Til next post, Kellie.
