Okay, I have been putting off posting pictures of my new home because, well, I am not done decorating. But really, when are you ever done? And why would you want to be? A huge part of the fun is taking your time and to find that perfect deal or unique piece. So I decided that I should just post pictures when I feel a room is done enough and I can update you with any big changes in the future. So first room…the living room.
This was the first room to come together for me. When I was in Hong Kong last summer I bought an oil painting I love and knew I wanted to use it as a starting point for my room. I already owned a fair amount of furniture and was lucky that a lot of it worked into the vision of what I wanted to do. Ever since I knew I was buying this place I started searching for the right pieces I needed and began stalking my favorite websites and stores for deals. Here is the result…so far.
So, here is the before:
I am currently using folding chairs as side chairs (cute folding chairs, but folding chairs all the same.) To come soon are a pair of living room chairs I bought at a consignment store that I need to repair and recover. Initially I had grand thoughts of doing this myself but of late I am more persuaded to pay someone to do it for me. I’ll be sure to show you the finished result.
So there it is, my living room so far. I wish you could all come over for some hot chocolate, knitting, and a great TV show on DVD.
