My Precious has Arrived!

8 Jun

Guess who showed up to surprise me last Friday, my Precious (a little “Lord of the Rings” throw back there). What I mean is my sofa is here! Finally after a month of waiting (which isn’t that bad for a custom-made sofa) my sofa finally arrived last week and I couldn’t be more pleased!

I ordered my sofa from a fabulous North Carolina furniture builder. I chose this sofa because it is extra deep (great for lounging in) but at the same time the two rows of pillows support your back if you want to sit up straight (for entertaining purposes because you can’t slouch in a LBD). I also loved the long bench cushion and elegantly rolled arms that are not too over-stuffed but not too modern.

I hand select the fabric, of which I chose two. The back, sides, and back pillows are in an intricate trellis pattern of dark taupe and cream. Complimenting the trellis pattern is a casual, yet sophisticated stripe in taupe and cream. I love how the trellis pattern is feminine and French, while the stripe has a masculine “menswear” appeal. The combination is stunning and inviting!

So here is a review of the progress so far: We went from this…

To this…

To this…

Not too shabby! Stay tuned for the budget breakdown and be amazed by just how little it took to create this look.

“Hello Lover!”

I am so glad that Carrie Bradshaw coined the phrase “Hello Lover!” because there are some things that can evoke no less of a response. This morning I was reading my dailies. I found the most beautiful chair featured on SimplyGrove (one of my favorite blogs). It was by the company Aiveen Daly, go check out there site. Here are just a few of the beauties you will find there.

The perfect mix of traditional and modern!

I am in love with this dining room featured on Papillon Linens blog. The design group id 810 Design group created a room to suit the husband’s modern taste (the table) with traditional elements (the chairs) for the wife’s tastes. The chandeliers are a perfect mix of both styles, a traditional shape but stylized interpretation. I really love the easy tablescape made of simple beach elements. The room in designed just enough, not over done, just right! Oh, yeah and I kinda dig the pink chairs.
