We’ve been in our new house for two weeks now. Two weeks! I can’t believe it. We still have plenty of boxes to unpack and seasonal decorations to move up to the attic, but it’s been so hot. Who wants to move boxes into a stuffy attic in 100-degree temps? Not me. Not my husband. Those boxes can wait. Who needs to park in the garage anyway right?
As you may know, we purchased a black leather couch for the living room. Black leather is something I’ve never had in my home. I’ve never had a pair of black leather pants either. Shocking I know. What do we think of our black leather couch choice? We absolutely love it! Since we went with such a large and black piece of furniture, I lightened the mood up a bit with some color. Here’s what I’ve purchased for the living room so far.
Pillows, Lots and Lots of Pillows
A New Canvas
A New Chair from IKEA
A New Clock from Big Lots (It was 75% off!)
A Yellow Bird (Because every living room needs one)
A New Desk from IKEA – Our computers are in a section of the living room. It works.
A Blue Table – This wasn’t a new purchase, just a redo. It was brown. And every living room needs a blue table right?
A New Table, A Black Tray & EAT letters in blue with a chalkboard – the EAT was red from our old house, so I just painted them. I heart spray paint.
A Bicycle my daughter found
Items On Their Way
Here are a few items I ordered that are on their way.
Bathroom Shelf for the guest bathroom.
This Round Blue Storage Ottoman I’m freaking out about – in a good way.
These two Living room lamps. One is for the blue table and one is for a dresser in the living room.
I still have a TON to do, but I’m taking it one day at a time and enjoying the process. My goal is to only purchase items I fall in love with. For example – I haven’t put any curtains up in our entire home. Why? I donated all of our old ones and am waiting either to make the new curtains myself or wait until I find some to buy that I can’t live with out. I’m working on my patience. 🙂
I’ll update you on new home developments every now and then. Have you purchased something new for your home? Tell me what it is and direct me to a picture! I would love to see it.
