I'm skipping WORKspace Wednesday because I haven't done a Lately post in a while so I figured before I get into some of the big projects and few finishing touches I would share some little snapshots.
Our Room and Board Ian sofa arrived and it is amazing! Extremely comfortable, love the clean lines and shape of it, and the color works perfectly in the room. Because of the light color this is a 'no dogs allowed' sofa. The old one has been moved into the office and that's where the dogs congregate now :)
I finally have all of the curtain panels for the office sewn, but not dyed. After hanging them all up I'm pretty keen on the white so for now they stay this way. Eventually my plan is to get wood or bamboo blinds in the windows to add some natural texture and contrast to the walls. I also love having the panels open and framing the windows, so the shades will add the privacy factor.
Our jute rug arrived form Rugs Usa and it was another fantastic purchase! It is not at all hard and scratchy and compliments the room beautifully. We needed something to ground our light sofa as it blended right into our light carpet and this does the job.
I also ordered seven or eight fabrics from Fabric.com (my go-to place for affordable fabrics) and made up some pillow covers for the new sofa. My accents are shades of teal and coral with black and white as well.
And the best part...our countertops are finally installed! For about a month we only had partial laminate counters because when we removed the kitchen peninsula the counters had to go as well. We still had a sink and everything, but it is definitely nice having counters across all of our cabinets again :) We chose 'White Spring' granite. This picture does it no justice. It is a gorgeous mix of greys, whites, slight pinks, and beautiful crystal flecks throughout.
The kitchen still has a way to go as we plan on re-facing the cabinet doors, painting them, adding in the tile backsplash, changing out the light fixtures, and installing new toe-kicks and baseboards. And those are just the big things :)
But we are loving the progress so far and are so happy that things are finally coming together and feeling complete!
