Sitting Pretty

Guess what may or may not have been purchased by me today?

Need a hint?

I texted Jon while at the store and told him I needed it and now wanted to completely re-do the living room. His response, "Are you insane?" My response back, " No, just a decorator."

We are picking it up on Saturday. Smart man that husband of mine is.

Don't worry I'm not re-doing the living room...yet. I just couldn't think of it going home with someone else. :)

LOVE the print :) Can't wait to see how the room turns out once it is added!

Oooh! I agree, such a great print, and it looks like it's a great shape too!

I laughed so hard when he responded with "are you insane." That's my husband's reaction to most of my messages!! They're lucky we love them ;)

Thanks ladies. It's stunning. It's in perfect condition and in framed in wood that is painted high gloss blank..heaven!

I also found two other finds that I added to be bill. I will take pictures on Saturday.

I have no idea where they are going to go. I keep pushing Jon for a store front! Ah if only that pesky thing called money didn't keep messing up my plans.

Jon literally thought I had lost my mind. I finally calmed down about repainting and leaving things as is..for now, but I needed to rescue that sofa.

No shame in re-doing a living room around one awesome purchase. I'm in the midst of doing so after purchasing the chiang mai settee (from Jenny K)

PS - and while my husband had a similar response as yours, now he's seeing it all come together (after selling everything & starting anew!)

This is one of those things that I enjoy seeing in other people's home, but are not brave enough to do in my own :) Now, I would love to try it in my cottage, the one I dream about (a girl can dream, right?)

Great find. I hope you can add it to your home or a clients! A storefront would be fab... I can totally see you thriving with that but you'd have to have one online too since I am in california and don't make it to NY as much as I'd like.

Thanks guys! I totally want to leave the fabric as is. It's bold and beautiful and in perfect condition.

Jon on the other hand loves the lines of the piece, but wants it recovered.

We don't even have a place to use it yet in our home so we'll have to wait and see what we do.

I'm with you on the insane thing - my husband says this to me all the time!

you are outta control! PS- I think that Jon should start having a boot camp for husbands (and fiances) of decorators / and the decorating obsessed (like me). My fiance needs a lesson on how to just "go along" with my ideas and not give me a hard time :)
