If you read my last posts, you’ve probably figured out there’s a lot going on in my head these days. (And thanks to all of you who commented and left me encouraging words 🙂 )
So I’m going to take a mini break from all that and say
“Happy 100 to me!” Yes, this is my 100th post!!
Let’s take a minute and do a goofy celebratory dance for a bit. [steps away from computer. Does a silly dance. Looks around and confirms no one saw]
Alright…back to work.
I may have already mentioned this, but I was looking at furniture online this weekend. (I think its my own way of getting my mind off stuff I don’t want to think about, even though there’s no practicality in picking out furniture for an apartment I don’t know I’ll ever have.) I’ve always wanted a tufted couch, so I spent almost two days this weekend online looking at furniture websites looking for the couch. The one that would make me swoon. Well, I did kind of find one, but its white (and I’m not sure I can commit to white) and that there was no source for the couch (its just a picture of someone’s living room) and it definitely looks expensive!
So I kept looking, and I’ve definitely found a contender!!
Meet the lovely Azure! (Yeah…I couldn’t get the picture to load, but you can check her out at Crate & Barrel. Isn’t she gorgeous?!)
The toughest part of looking for a couch is deciding on the look/style you are going for. Since I haven’t been able to decide on one it makes it kind of difficult. However when you run into a piece like Azure, you gotta kind of be glad that nothing has been decided on yet. I think she can definitely make it as a central piece in my living room without making it look too modern, nor too overdone. I just have to pick out everything else more carefully. One of the bigger downsides though is that Azure comes with a price tag of $1899. While I know nothing about furniture, i’ve come to notice that this is on the higher end of the price range. I think I would be willing to pay that price if I was to decide this was the couch for me, though. In my search I’ve also realized that couches can be boring…and azure is definitely NOT boring!
One of my missions in the near future is to decide what kind of vibe I’m going to go for in my apartment (there I go again…talking about “my non-existent apartment” [sigh]). There are a number of items I plan on taking with me when I move, mostly vintage posters and some frames and mirrors, everything else I’m leaving. What I’m worried about now is forgetting what I have and going with a decor that won’t go well with all of that stuff. So what I’m looking at doing is making an inventory of all the items I’m taking with me (with photographs as well) and then working from there to make sure it goes with the furniture style I choose and with wall colors (very important).
