The Loungeroom!

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Don't you hate it when you speak too soon?! Well it seems I did. Long story short, the curtains for the lounge room ARE being remade BUT for various reasons they have to remake them using the SAME fabric that had me gagging all last week. I have calmed down about the whole thing now as it's not the end of the world and whilst I won't go as far as saying that they are growing on me, I will say that I think I can make them work. The following pic is a snippet of the curtain fabric. Some of you might even like the fabric but you might also know me a little by now and know that it is most definitely not something I would have chosen. I bet you're thinking 'It doesn't look THAT bad' right?! Well picture it covering an entire wall with very high ceilings... it hurts the eyes a little more, trust me :P

The fabric in question.
After deciding to go with the cushions in Option #1 for the bedroom, and then being told the curtains in the lounge room will remain as is, I was quietly excited when I realised the Chiang Mai Dragon cushions I was considering for the master bedroom will go perfectly with the lounge curtains along with our original vintage poster which is still with the framers!

I quite like them teamed with these

also from Etsy seller Woody Liana
Oooh and I am also excited to report that I have ordered x2 mirrors to go above the mantles in the lounge room and the formal dining room. After umming and ahhing for weeks whether to go circular or rectangular, antique or contemporary, my mind was made up for me! I was on my way home from doing the grocery shopping when I was stopped at a red light and staring straight at me from the window of a design studio was exactly what I had envisioned! Don't you love when that happens! By no means does the below picture do the mirror any justice, but you can kinda get the idea...

And here's a snippet of what it will look like together...

What do you think?! I'm crossing my fingers I can pull it all together. Next on my list is a new coffee table!

On a separate note, today I managed to pick up all the bits and pieces to make Allegra's 1st Birthday invitations... I'll keep you up to date as the planning progresses! :) x
