Last weekend, we did something MAJOR! We sold EVERYTHING in our living room!! Yep, if you didn’t know that we had this great master plan to completely redesign our space, you would think that one of us has gone CRAZY. And it would most likely be ME.
It was a bittersweet moment for my husband b/c we finally sold the set of couch that he custom built. With its super clean lines and modern appeal, it was very well built and sturdy. However, it was time for us to move on as our styles have changed. Can’t move forward until you let go. At least the couple who bought our furniture seemed very grateful so I’m sure that they will enjoy them for yrs to come.
This is such an awesome moment. This opportunity… to turn a space into our stylish haven that we’ve (I) always dreamed of. For sure this space will combine what my husband favors (mid-century modern style) and my current (almost unhealthy) obsession with all things PARISIAN!
Below is my vision (& the husband’s, but mostly mine…/ happy wife, happy life!) of what I want our space to become. Most images gathered from my pinterest board, Abode.
Months ago, on a whim, I bought this GORGEOUS provincial couch, which will be the main piece in our living room. It needs some work, the husband’s going to reupholster it to a velvet gray but it’s gonna look soo awesome when finished! The look & feel of our couch is pretty similar to the one as seen in the image above.
As for the decorative pillows, I will most likely make them. I def want 2 HUGE faux fur ones and ‘maybe’ 2 smaller ones w/ ‘love notes’ prints. Not sure how difficult it will be to find such fabric. What do you think of my choices?
Behind our provincial chair will be a console. This has always been our vision. However, seeing the image above gave us the excellent idea to also make it function as an extra workspace. Console + workspace = cleverness!
We already have these mid-century modern rockers. They will be used as our side chairs in place of a ‘love seat’.
I immediately thought of IKEA. Ah – the go to places for many things. I remember seeing these sheepskin rugs there. I’m sure they’ll make great options for the faux fur throws. Since they are actually rugs, they will have the non slip bottom which would be perfect over the plastic molded chairs.
Great minds think alike. Last night my husband mentioned that he wanted a tufted coffee table. I was actually dying to tell him about this picture (above) that I saw. What a great idea- a storage ottoman as a coffee table! This also means that we would have to use decorative trays to put things on which turns out perfect b/c I’m also quite obsessed w/ them!
I NEED a cool looking clock for our space! Actually, I just bought one earlier today! Couldn’t help myself- I’m sure the husband will LOVE it as much as I do.
I hope that you were also able to gather some ideas for your space too.
Live life stylishly and creatively!
‘Til next post, Kellie.
