In a few short weeks, it will be one year of living in our first home together. With that being said, we haven't done much decorating as many of you home owners know, when you buy your first home, you kinda sink every penny you have into your house.
The hubby and I spend a lot of time in our family room and it's the one room I really really want semi done (decorated). This has been such a challenge since we sold our old entertainment center, our old couch, basically all our old decor! Who knew starting over would be so hard!?
It all started with me seeing these chairs and HomeGoods.
I had been talking to my stepmom about the challenge I felt with this room and she was recommending how we need a statement piece for our living room. Well when we made it to CO last weekend, I showed her these chairs and she said Yes, those are exactly what you need! I actually called HomeGoods in AZ all the way from CO to see if the chairs were still there. Sadly a man on the phone told me no, they were already gone. I was bummed. I finally had the hubby convinced with the coaching of my stepmom that these would be great and then poof they weren't available anymore.
Well on the day we got back to AZ, and picked up Aspen from boarding, I told the hubby that I Just had to stop in to HomeGoods (right next to our petsmart) just to see for myself if the chairs were in fact really gone.
Those exact chairs were gone, but in their exact spot where two chairs same pattern but a little bit wider! I was jumping for joy! Ran out to our car, told the hubby, he said okay, and then I got to bring these home with me a few days later!
I hate that the I phone takes crappy pictures inside and whenever I photograph anything black it always looks snowy. Does this happen to anyone else? booo.
I like these accent pillows for our couch from Etsy.
I'd like to find some oblong pillows for the chevron chairs but so far no luck. How many pillows and how many different designs should one have on a couch anyway? I don't think 3 is enough for the whole couch, perfect for one side of the couch, but what about the other side? The exact same 3 pillows down at the other end? I need some pointers!
I really love this lamp from Potterybarn, but it's a little to expensive.
It's on sale and still a little to much budget wise, and it's on back order till NOVEMBER. Would any of you wait that long to get a lamp?
Well if any if you have any decor tips or see anything online going with this theme of mine, do let me know! :)
