So my West Elm chair came and I love it! I also did some shopping for pillows and other odds and ends.
I got the pillow from Home Goods. Its a pretty grey blue velvet.
These white pillows will go on the sofa. Every room in my house has a basket - mostly to hide all of the kids' stuff in when people come over.
I swapped out the fabric in the secretary. Its subtle, but looks great. I have extra fabric and will probably make a couple of pillows with it. Speaking of extra fabric, I used the leftover curtain fabric is make a big pouf. A friend had given me all of her old patio cushions a while a ago - I look them a part and used them to stuff this thing. Its a little lumpy. I think I need to remove all of the foam and snuggly wrap it in batting, then put it back in the cube. The kids love it and it makes a nice foot rest.
I had really wanted to buy new chairs for the area by the window, but they weren't in the cards. So I brought up two chairs from the basement. They were underused in the basement and they work really well in this room. I thought the black would be a little harsh - but my grandmother always said "every room needs a touch of black" and she was right.
I also bought this cute little end table for the room. It was on sale for $80 at target! You may recall that I have a thrifted table that also has a hexagon shaped top. I'm working on that piece today.
In addition to the sofa delivery I still have to tackle that big blank wall, paint two pieces of furniture (surprises), and fuss over the room's styling. EEEK. Oh, and did I mention that the kids have three days off of school this week!
I can't wait to see all of the big reveals next week!
