Just recently came back from a much needed 4-day mini getaway. For my husband, going camping every year is an absolute must, so we headed out to Lake Cachuma and took day trips to Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley wine country (see a few snapshots of the trip here). These past few months have been a bit crazy so it was nice to slow things down for a few days and relax.
Back at home, and feeling refreshed, I'm motivated to make some more progress on decorating our little rental apartment. You may remember the last post on my living room it was looking pretty sparse (see the move-in post here). Since then, the main things we've added are the rug and mirror. Here's what it looks like currently:
On the list of things to do next:
- make pillows - on the sofa will be two pillows in aga reverse black with black piping, and two black solid with off-white grosgrain ribbon; on the chair will be one lumbar in zig zag french blue with black piping
- paint the side table - I'm thinking possibly this sapphire blue
- make the abstract art I talked about in this post
- bring in a piece of furniture that will store and hide the TV wires, DVDs, xbox, and games
In an upcoming post I'll share with you all, the progress we've made on the bedroom, so stay tuned for that!
p.s. For any of you who may be interested in getting pillows made out of the same fabrics mentioned, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
