AO did not hesitate to tell me that my last post didn’t go over so well. So, I’ll move back to some *exciting* happenings on the homefront. This past weekend, my mom and Molly and I went shopping at local treasures Iconi and Rubin’s. I was looking for a new chandelier for our dining room – see previous west elm debacle – but spotted a beautiful side table in the most perfect aqua blue at Iconi. I had been looking for a side table for some time to replace this number from the old Comfort Shoppe:
While I still think it’s a very pretty table, I am moving away from natural wood tones in the house, in favor of white furniture or furniture with color. So, when I spotted the blue side table, I thought I had found my soul mate. My mom sweetly offered to buy it for me. I declined, insisting that I could buy it myself. My mom won. She does that too often. Now we have this:
It’s not a great shot, but I swear it looks really nice. The IKEA couches in a pseudo-sectional may not be ideal, but they work for now. The pillows normally look less weird, but I wasn’t really styling the shot. Please, folks, go easy on me.
Now, for that chandelier…
