If my blog were a TV show, it would be Lost. Remember how Lost would take you in one direction, get you involved in the lives of certain characters and then go off the air for 6 months or shift focus to completely different events? Eventually, the audience would forget what the heck was even happening with half the characters or situations.
Well, that's kind of how my blog is. I show you a room, give you the background, share my plans for changing it, maybe tweak a few things, keep you on the edge of your seat for the reveal of my fabulous design (work with me on that one, people. I'm making an analogy), and then leave you hanging while I go strip wallpaper in another room. By the time I come back to the original room, you probably can't remember a thing about it.
Do you even remember my living room?
This is how it was looking on the last "episode."
One of the issues I've had with this room is trying to balance the large piano with the smaller scale upholstered pieces. A couple of readers suggested I move the cabinet that was behind the piano. So, I did...
Thank you, brilliant readers! I love the cabinets flanking the entrance to the foyer. And, I decided I loved the Anthro plate I bought last week, and went back for a few more and a couple of teacups and saucers.
And, speaking of love ...
I almost hugged the UPS driver when he delivered my pink velvet ottoman. This was a COM order from Ballard Designs, and I have been waiting so very patiently for it to show up on my doorstep :)
When I moved the cabinet, I decided to turn the piano so the keys were facing into the room. I hesitated to do that for a long time, because the sound quality is better if the piano's soundboard is open to the room. However, none of us is a concert pianist, so what the heck.
I think it looks much better this way.
Still got a long way to go, but I'm pleased with how the room is taking shape. Pillows are being made and my round ottoman is being recovered. I think I'm on ottoman overload! Hoping to have some more updates soon.
In the meantime, I hope that you are like the Lost audience... hanging in there despite the frustration, figuring that soon everything will make sense and there will be resolution.
