Day one of half marathon training in the books! I even talked Craig into joining me, so that was a nice surprise. I really enjoyed running in the dark. The trial is really flat and straight so I didn’t have to worry too much about tripping. Best part was the lack of sunshine beating down on me though!
Next up: the living room. We plan to purchase new living room furniture – we just aren’t sure when. We’ve been looking, but we just haven’t found exactly what we are looking for. We’re stuck between reclining furniture and just getting a great big (pretty, patterned) ottoman. Anyone have any opinions on that? I, for one, hate the way recliners look, but do quite enjoy their comfort!
I love the colors and patterns. Though, if I’m honest, a rug like that would never work in our home and Craig would never ever buy that chair. Even if he had a recliner on the other side of the room.
I love the couch and chair. I love the size and idea of the ottoman, though I can’t say I’m a huge fan of this one in particular. Craig and I have pretty much agreed that we won’t have a coffee table, but it’d still be nice to have something to prop your feet up on! Plus, it can double as seating if you have a number of people in your home!
Again, the patterns and colors! Love! Not sure how the light colors I’ve been loving lately will work out with 2 dogs, who will be running around a fenced-in back yard and with the kiddos we may have one day…
I love every single thing about this. The chair, ottoman, glass doors, decoration. Swoon.
My favorite for last! The colors, pattern, texture, couch, chair, EVERYTHING. I swooned at the last picture, but this time I’ve flat-out keeled over. I love this room. So, so much. Which sort of funny the more I look at it – these last two are quite different, aren’t they?
What do you all think? Am I nuts for the color palette I covet, given the fact I have dogs and babies on the brain? What do you think of the patterned ottomans? Leave your thoughts and links to posts you’ve written recently about a living re-do of your own!
