I'm making progress. We have ordered our living room sofa and matching chairs. The sofa will be in a velvet like material in a golden caramel colour. The chairs are a bit darker in a cotton basket weave. One set of down pillows (18" x 18") is a damask silk type print in light gold and light blue. The other down pillows (22" x 22") are a very soft silk mix in a darker blue. The blue is almost silvery. It's not baby blue at all.
Here is a photo of the sofa from the print out at the store. It does not do the sofa justice. Its beautiful in person and very comfortable. I love the classic english roll arms and lines of the sofa. The side view is the best as it has a subtle dip towards the back. Our sofa and chair legs will be in espresso.
We have also picked out the kitchen paint colour but I've forgotten the name. I'll update you next week once the painting commences. :)
This weekend we have a busy house hold. My aunt and uncle (Karen & Don) are house hunting (fingers crossed everyone!) in Milton. I get to take their daughters out (my cousins) to a water park and who knows where else. I'm thinking maybe to get our nails done. The day will be sunny and warm but not too hot as this week was horrible! At least it made my cousins feel at home since they just moved up from Virginia and are much more use to 3 digit temps.
We have the painter coming on Monday/Tuesday for the hallways. I still haven't picked out paint. I need to get on it this afternoon/tomorrow morning. My cousins and I (by the way they are 4 and 6) will most likely be headed to the paint store Saturday morning to get a few testers. Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!! xo
