Since we moved into our townhouse in December we’ve been on a constant search for furniture and decoration. My husband and I have spent our weekends at flea markets and furniture stores, searched for inspiration in magazines and blogs – almost to the point that we need a decoration break! We have come quite far by now – bought 3 sofas (of which one has been returned) and countless other things, old and new, to make this empty place our home. Yet sometimes it is easy to feel like it is just an endless process of decorating, one that never finishes, but I guess that is also the charm. A home is something that changes with the people inside it… but I guess I am a bit anxious us usual to make it feel like home. Now it’s finally starting to do just that.
Just like I showed you our bathroom I will show you all of the room as they start to feel more complete. But for now here’s a little sneak peak of a few new things around the house.
This is the Chesterfield that replaced the first one we bought (that smelled of tobacco). This one is much more comfortable as the seat cushions are fluffier and deeper. The color is quite hard to show since the two windows are making it look darker than it really is. The top pic shows the color better than this one though…
When we couldn’t find the table we were dreaming of we decided to order a custom made one from a well renowned workshop (The Lorimer Workshop). It turned out fantastic, and I’ll show you more of it soon. But here’s how the board looks like. It is made from reclaimed wood.
For the two windows in the library I had seat cushions custom made in Scottish plaid. This corner is my favorite tea-break spot!
Flea Market finds from this market and from an Antique shop in Philadelphia. The trunks are from around 1890 and the globe is German pre- WWII.
It’s starting to come together – don’t you think?
