So, as we're getting to closer to living in this house, I've been thinking more and more about what we're going to put in it. George and I are thinking we'll make do with what we have for a bit, buy some essentials in the first few months, and slowly fill up the rest of the house.
Right now, I'm just trying to get a general idea of what I want, color scheme, etc. My "go to" for furniture will always be Pottery Barn. I'm IN LOVE with pretty much everything they sell. It's my style, pretty affordable, and livable. I don't want my house looking like a museum with nothing touched or lived in.
Luckily, G and I have some major gift cards to use. Pottery barn also gives you 10% back in store credit for whatever you put on their credit card. So, you're saving 10% on everything (assuming you pay it off immediately). Everything pictured below is from Pottery Barn, but I'm also going to try to find similar styles of accessories from places like Target and Home Goods.
Here are some design ideas that I have come up with:
We are doing white cabinets with a few glass fronts. Our granite is tan with some brown and cream "movement." <A term that I just learned I'm thinking that using dark barstools and dark table and chairs for the breakfast nook will be ok, because the rest is so bright. I'm hoping to do some oiled bronze pendants and use some green accents. I'd like to tie some red in without making it look too Christmas-y.
For the main floor living room, I'm hoping to use a mixture of cool grays and blues with warm brown leather. I can't decide between doing a leather sofa or a leather chair. Either way, I want some of that cozy brown leather, with that fluffy rug and throw. Since this furniture is on the main level, it needs to be durable, but stylish as well. We currently have a Pottery Barn couch and couldn't be more happy.
So there you have it, my Wednesday Wishlist.
What do you think? What are you wishing for this Wednesday?
