long story short, hubs and i are putting off our house hunt. could be fall, but will probably be next spring. so all of my thoughts of starting fresh with furniture are on hold as well. but i can't continue to live like this! my style is changing, and i would love for
five years ago, i bought my first couch. the lines are beautiful. i've never been so in love with the sage green color, but i negotiated it down to an insane price, so i wasn't walking away from it. reupholstering may be totally out of the question, so i have to consider my options if i keep the color. we're also sticking with the chrome/glass coffee table that hubs and i bought our first christmas living together. mostly because i haven't overcome the sentimental value of it, and the see-through factor is nice in our small space. i also recently scored an amaaaaaaaaaaaazing amy kligman original that will be staying. i half died when i first laid eyes on this painting and i love, love, love it on our wall.
given all of that, do we like a, b or c?
a || a lot of what i already have, but changing up pillows and accessories. i have a brass lamp that's begging to be repainted (white?) and that toned-down zebra print adds another layer of pattern and texture, which i'm really into right now. this is a colorful option, totally in keeping with the rest of our place (color whore here!). however, this is something that i'm finding myself gravitating away from ever so slightly.
b || less color. still playful, but with a bit of sophistication. love these pillows, but am slightly afraid our kitten will destroy them. he's never outgrown his suckling phase, and has done a real number on one of our throws...the fur-esque pillows would be immediate targets. stylish immediate targets, mind you.
c || more in line with where my taste is moving (neutrals with pops of color), but requires some reupholstery. not so sure that will happen, but if the masses vote for it, i have ammo for my argument with hubs :)
* that little wood guy goes in a tray on the coffee table amongst books and bowls and such. i just wanted to show that hit of wood, which we actually have a lot of in our loft.
vote away, my dears!
