It's tempting to hide all pictures of the new house until everything is "done", then have this huge reveal of my perfect house. Which will never happen.
So I will tamp down any feelings of fear or insecurity, and show y'all the before and what I am planning on doing with each room. I always like to see plans and progression, so hopefully you do too.
However, I took a packing break to go to my favorite antique store with my mom last Saturday, and happened upon these loveseats.
So now it's time to reconfigure.
I'd like the loveseats to face each other like these couches-
First, the loveseats obviously need to be recovered. The upholstery is in good enough shape that I think I can get by with custom slipcovers for a third of the price of reupholstering.
Have any of y'all ever used Crypton fabric? You know by now everything in my house needs to be golden retriever and child friendly. We like to get messy.
I'm thinking tailored slipcovers in this Crypton fabric. Morgan keeps talking about navy. The guy is just dying for a navy couch. All I can envision is a navy couch covered in blond Buddy hair. But this just came to me (blogging is so useful for organizing one's ideas and/or brainstorming)- what about doing contrast welting? The cushions would be piped in navy? Kind of like this-
Or in this ticking? I just adore it! Although, I'm really feeling ticking for the living and dining room- story for another day.
Then eventually, I want to add some kilim rugs for color and texture on top of the seagrass-esque jute rugs that are currently there. Like this-
It's my birthday today, so please feel free to send me this one from Overstock-
I have a lot of work to do. The IKEA couch and Morgan's leather chair are going to move down to the family room, where our sectional currently resides. The sectional is down-filled, which sounds lovely, but ends up looking saggy and dumpy in reality. Back to my favorite furniture store it will go (Thanks, mama for the loan!).
Oh, I do apologize for the lack of links and sources- I saved all of this on my phone while feeding the baby, and forgot to save links. I will try to backtrack and find all my sources. Just not right now.
