I have a new living room :) I moved last year and finally have furniture that works here!
|Living room, from the entry|
I bought new bookcases that are open so don't block the light. I really like how it divides the space, leaving a reading nook and dining area (aka sewing room in winter). The embroidered cushions match a lampshade I already own.
|New comfy couch|
The new couch is black leather, not something I ever imagined buying. But it's thick leather, comfy, I love the chaise and the headrest is awesome! Tall people need neck support too.

I bought some lovely fabric today for shirts. I've realized how nice woven shirts are for warm weather, and happened to be passing the fabric store. But I need to finish the quilt first: next step is pin basting. Maybe I can get it done tonight. I may use lemon bars to bribe a friend into helping ;)
In less happy news, Picasa ate some of my photos. Luckily I have backups, but it's annoying to lose photos on blog entries and tedious to replace them.
I like your furniture arrangement. Those shelves are really neat - where did you get them? They'd work great in my place also.ReplyDelete
