Good Evening, Friends! I wanted to give you guys a quick look at the new sofa. You’ve all been saying how excited you are to see it (I’m not sure if it’s because you’re trying to make me feel good, or if you just get that excited about all things “home” like I do – either way I love you for it 🙂 ), so I thought I’d give you a peek.
The pros: The sofa itself is beautiful, comfortable, and the quality is top notch. The off-white color is perfect, and I now have all the freedom I want to use any color and/or texture throughout the room (did you notice I went for the blue? It’s a little bright for me, but I’m kind of loving it for a change). I also love how open the room feels now that the sofa has been moved to the fireplace wall – it adds a lot of dimension to the room.
The cons: The sofa is a little bigger than I anticipated, and things are not fitting back into the room quite like I expected. At first I was thinking we should have opened the doorway before the sofa even arrived, but now I’m glad we didn’t, because I’m not 100% sure it’s going to work like I had hoped. I think I’ll have to keep moving things around every few days until I find a furniture arrangement I’m happy with. I have my fingers crossed I can make my original plan work though. I also have a lot of patching and touch up work needing to be done – the baskets next to the fireplace no longer work there, and the big mirror may have to come down and be relocated somewhere else in the house, etc. – you know how those things have a domino effect. Definitely lots to think about!
Hope you enjoyed the little sneak peek at our new living room. I’ll be sharing more with you soon! 🙂
