It’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!
This retro-style green chair was found on the side of someone’s driveway with a “FREE” sign taped to it. Yes, we thought, that will do nicely! I am sitting comfortably on it while I blog right now. Pilot also likes it.
My Dad has completed his move and found he had some furniture items left over after he put everything in place. 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.
One of the other pieces he didn’t have space for was a series of 4’x4′ prints made by my older sister Sheri. 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 ❤
Still working on other stuff which I will photograph soon.
