Well, well, well. I wrote in my last post that I may be moving soon, and I *think* it may actually be happening! Don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like I have a buyer for my condo and my offer on a house was accepted a few months ago. This is all super exciting and I'm already making tons of plans for how to decorate the new place. I'm going to be looooooow on cash when I move in, since I had to sell my condo at a significant loss (piece of s--t real estate market), so that means no wallpaper and no fancy bathroom renovations like I did in my last place. But I think I can still make some really fun changes with lots of paint, new cabinet hardware and faucets, new bathroom tile, etc.
I've allowed myself a little room in my budget to buy a bit of new furniture, including two new chairs and a sofa for the living room (I'm thinking my current enormous sofa and yellow chairs will go in the basement to make a kind of home theater with a big ass television). I'm already having some of these items delivered to my current condo so that when I move they can be taken directly to the new house - though the new sofa will be delivered directly to the new place. I thought it might be fun to show you some pics of what's in store as everything arrives!
Here are pics of the new sofa and chairs. Well, actually, that's a picture of the sofa in its loveseat version; I bought it at Macy's and they didn't have the full sofa out on the showroom floor, so imagine it slightly larger, with one extra seat cushion. When I went to Macy's, it was to check out a specific sofa - a Martha Stewart couch with a Chesterfield silhouette - but when I walked by this one, I took a double take. After looking at if for a few moments, I figured out why it caught my attention: it reminds me very much of a tufted leather chair that belonged to my grandfather when I was little. I'm hoping that a leather couch with tufting will always look neat; I love my couch now but it's huge and always looks sloppy after someone's been sitting on it.
The chairs are SUPER cool - the upholstery is this neat, nubby bright red wool/raw silk. They're really different and I love the juxtaposition of the funky fabric with the classic French Provincial chair frame.
I will post more pictures as new items come in! Hopefully everything goes well and I'm able to move in at the end of October!
