We've currently lived in Maison Habibi for roughly 6 months- where did the time go?!?! In my mind, 6 months were going to take forever. It would be the time where I had a ton of decorating done in the house and my next big purchase would be living room furniture. Now that 6 months have passed my current living room sofas are reminding me of my previous commitment. The only problem is...finding what I want!!!!!!! This is going to be a wee bit of a turd faced rant against this city I live in.
WHY must you only carry franchised furniture...and not the good franchise either
WHY must you all carry THE SAME STINKING FURNITURE
WHY do you not have a store sample of the only one possible sofa that I just *might* really like
WHY do you insist on closing at annoying hour of 6 p.m....on a week night. As if closing the whole town on 9 p.m. isn't bad enough you want to annoy me even further and close at 6? But I might forgive you because you might be carrying *the one*
I could go on- but I wouldn't want anyone getting the wrong idea , ya know.
Here are some rooms I'm coveting and they are all basically following the same motif. I want an eclectic room thats very lux and glam ( kind of like an old parisian apartment)...but casual enough for everyday living. Yes, I know I'm contradicting myself, but if it were up to me I'd get the sexiest furniture I could and not worry about making a mess.
Think gorgeous moldings, velvet upholstery, with touches of black,and gold gilded everything.
But I guess I'll be realistic, if only for the sake of my poor husband who keeps praying (aloud mind you) that I will find the furniture of my dreams ASAP. I don't think he knew what he was getting in for when we bought this house. We've only been here 6 months and aren't 5% complete with decorating. Oh Lordy.
I especially love this last photo in all of it's vintage settee gorgeousness. I've found a couple of similar settees, but would obviously have to reupholster them. Have any of you had to reupholster a sofa sized item? Is it worth it or way too expensive?
Basically, my dream living room is like Christine's from Bijou and Boheme. If there ever was a girl after my own heart it'd be Christine with all of her gold, fur, and glamorous love. 500% my style.
anywho, wish me luck that I end up finding something. I don't want matching furniture, which makes it harder to complete the room at the same time, but I don't mind all that much. I'd just like to start SOMEWHERE. Yes, please? 2012 Resolution perhaps?
happy weekend toots
