After a Friday night party at a friend's perfectly decorated house (who also happens to be an interior designer) and a Sunday afternoon Super Bowl party at a super hip-looking loft, I've realized just how far we have to go before our place looks "finished." And for some reason, that really stresses me out.
I spent the evening after Alice went to bed last night looking at different home decorating websites and taking screen shots of living rooms that I found interesting. None of these pictures are exactly what we're looking for in our living room but what I like about them is that they look cohesive, which is what I've always struggled to achieve when trying to decorate by myself.
We did make a major decision last week and got rid of our beloved Crate&Barrel couch that my cats had basically destroyed. And along with being torn to shreds by cat claws, it was a little too big for our living room space anyway.
Now that we're down to one couch (this one that we bought while living in Boston) and now that we have more space to work with, Alice and I spent some time this morning rearranging furniture! And just by moving a few things around, I am starting to see how our living room will eventually come together.
What do you think? Do these living rooms look too perfect and not-lived-in? Obviously, these living rooms would only stay looking this perfect without a toddler and two cats living there.
