The Room in Which We Live Gets a Burst of Ikea
Oh yes. We are, in fact, still moving in. Or maybe shuffling the things that are already "in" to more controlled arrangements. Right now we live out of boxes (of the cardboard variety) and out of plastic boxes that we humorously ordained as our "dresser."
But I have a dream of a clean, uncluttered house (please God!) that smells of lovely lime and gardenia blossoms.
Yesterday, Justin and his brawny male-kin hauled and assembled our new, beautiful Ikea Kivik sofa in light gray.
It's wonderful having a real couch instead of the ghetto one that Dobby used as his scented territory marker. Now with the biggest piece in place, we just have to get painting the coffee table and side tables bright blue. We might also paint other pieces gray to match the gray curtains we picked out at Target, but I'd be happy just to have ONE room presentable at this point. Here's the design board for the living area:
Gray Curtains from Target (Woolrich® Grommet Window Panel Pair - Gray - $29.99 / panel)
Blue Accent Chair:
Ikea ÅSELE lamp, silver ($59.99)
IKEA STOCKHOLM BLAD Fabric, black & white $8.99 / yards
