Interiors: A Work in Progress

06_24_2015_03It’s been a year and a half now, but we are finally getting comfortable in our home and collecting the things we need. We have been very lucky and a lot of what we have is thrifted or found or very generously given to us. It’s been a while since I’ve shown the inside of the house (and I’m not going to do downstairs because it has become a bunny tornado zone haha) but the living and dining rooms are shaping up nicely!

One such item was a large blue/black IKEA sofa that I set up in the upstairs living room (the “fancy” living room lol). This meant a reshuffle of the furniture, placing the BENSEN sofa with the lower back in front of the window and reorienting the carpet and NOOD bench. The result is a space better suited for conversation and hanging out. The sofa cushions probably need some more coordination, but luckily I have fabric in other patterns to make some more if needed.

They look great on the dining wall which previously featured a custom framed Mark Ryden print sort of floating in space… this is a much better use of this large wall. We both love how the prints work in the room, my sister is very talented! Still loving that new dining fixture too ❤
