Rearranging

April 7, 2011

In between freelance projects and trying to get outside to enjoy the post-freezing weather, I’ve been rearranging the living room layout once again. If memory serves, this will be the fourth arrangement we’ve had in the last eight months.

There are so many open doorways and not enough wall space. Believe me, I long for a solid wall to put the sofa against and (gasp!) have end tables with lamps and everything. But that’s just not the case here because it we did that, the TV would be non-viewable and let’s be honest, that’s what we do in the living TV room.

Here’s what it looked like back during the holidays:

As you can see, I’ve switched out a bunch of accessories to brighten the place up during summer. The Expedit serves as a console table and it topped with a few of my favorite things.

Now we can actually look at the fireplace, faux or not. The small changes really make it feel like a whole new place, huh?

PS: Oh yes, that is Godzilla on the floor. He’s part of the security system.

Christmas hit my livingroom

Corona Sofa

Enough teasing, already. Welcome to my livingroom.

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

I cringe at showing off my home, since it’s a continued work in progress. I just look at these pictures and thing, “Oh, I still have no rugs … Hmm, the mirror is tiny on the massive (and annoying) mantel … my walls are still white and my bookshelf is a hot mess.” But it’s Christmas and I felt like sharing.

So here’s how my home got Christmafied this year.

Did you see; I finally painted the fireplace! More on that later. As for everything else, I purchased the ‘Merry Christmas’ bunting at Target, along with the two wooden trees you see on the Expedit. The rest I’ve had from years past, including those adorable stockings from last years seasonal from Ikea.

I went a little crazy with the yarn on the mantel.

No clue.

Other than that, I made the little poofs hanging off the branches and that was the extent of my craftiness. The end.

Books-A-Thousand

August 17, 2010

This is just a small portion of our book collection. In the past, we’ve always organized the books by type: art/design, chic lit (do you see how many pink books I own? I’m almost slightly embarrassed!), politics, etc., but not this time. I’ve decided to organize our books by color this go around. We’re going to put them in the generous shelving the fireplace has to offer and I think it’s going to look fab!

Oh, and did you notice the new sofa? We ended up getting the Corona and it’s perfection. :)

Daydreaming

June 14, 2010

I’m back! Chicago was fab, y’all. Expect a few Windy City-related posts and pictures soon.

As you all know, we’ve been moving around a lot and have done some major downgrading lately. In fact, there’s a yard sale in the mix in the next couple of weeks. It’s left me with little furnishings, so I’ve been daydreaming about my next sofa. A lot.

I’m really in love with the Avec sofa from CB2, but with a nearly $1,200 price tag, it’s probably out of my range at the moment.

However, Macy’s has it’s only twist on the MCM sofa: the Corona. And at $700?! Let’s just say I know a bargain when I see one. Hopefully you’ll catch me drinking a Corona on my Corona soon. Sometimes daydreams become reality, right?

Oh! And check out the Flickr pool! It seems that this is one popular sitter.
