The latest obsession I have is with dining chairs. It goes in waves what I start to research day and night. Right now it’s dining chairs. It started with the studio. Hunting for the right table to have in there, and, what chairs to put around the time. But then a bunch of meetings needed to happen and we neede chairs out there someway immediately – and so we temporarily moved the dining chairs out from our dining room and into the outdoor studio. We can’t move them back and forth all the time, so it means one room – either the dining room, or studio, need new chairs.
We’ve been searching for an ottoman / coffee table for our TV room forever after I got rid of our last coffee table in a fit of anger because I hated it so. (It was way too big for the space, and was driving me nuts) Aubrey, in a similar fit of frustration (because he missed having somewhere to rest his feet while watching TV) bought an Ikea Lack coffee table for $35. He assured me it was temporary. Although size wise it was perfect – I’ll give it that, design wise it was killing me. It was like a black hole sucking any joy out of the room. I know, I’m being dramatic. But really. It wasn’t the look I was going for, but I understood the need for compromise.
I’m tweaking the house a little bit and I’ve found myself gravitating towards well travelled looks, bohemian, and natural pieces. I’ve stumbled on some amazing pricing on some pieces, so you and I can get the “look for less”. I called this the “Global Style” but I’m not sure if that’s an accurate description for this roundup. Pretty much whatever the look is above, I’m obsessed.
If your budget allows, then some more designer pillows may be up your alley. I’m a big pillow hoarder and feel like pillows can instantly change a room, so am guilty of splurging on pillows like these…
A few weeks ago I went to the HomeSense preview for all of their awesome kids stuff. It’s all glorious. From moroccan poufs that go in either a living room or a trendy kids room, to stuffed flamingo heads or swans with crowns – HomeSense knocks it out of the park season after season. Here are some shots of what you can expect to see rolling into the stores now!
