Ugh, it's taking me forever to get anything done in our house! So unfortunate how work gets in the way. And eating. And sleeping. And watching past seasons of Scandal on Netflix. Wait, one of these things could be avoided.
I could quit my job.
All the rooms are in various stages of haven't-started to halfway-there. I'm focusing on the parlor right now since it was totally empty and also the room you see when you open the front door. We would like it to look like people actually live here.
The light fixture I ordered arrived recently. It's so pretty! But it has a small problem, as you can see above. A new shade is on the way, thanks to the excellent customer service at Joss and Main.
The fabric I ordered for the chairs came. It's Malta Tourmaline by Iman Home. It's soft and a little bit velvety. I'm waiting for the chairs to upholster themselves.
And the rug I ordered? I just cancelled it. I don't want to wait 12 weeks, and the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I just didn't LOVE it. I kept thinking circus tent, and it's not very plush. If option #1 was cheaper, I'd try it. Maybe I can find it in a store and they'll let me bring it home and then bring it back if it looks insane.
At least we've got drapes up. Progress!
