**this is an ultra old post, I wrote this before going on our vacation – I should have published this much earlier, but I hope you enjoy this**
My thought process as I read through the latest Lonny (finally):
I love these pillows. I also love the price. Teal. I think that’ll be one of the colors for our backyard – it’s very summery and matches our office. Earlier today, I found this great outdoor sectional on (where else?) CL:
Hopefully they’ll fail to sell it and then try to sell it again next spring for $200. Hey, one can always hope. Can you picture that sectional with these pillows and a couple of gray and yellow pillows thrown in?
This is so, so pretty. SO pretty. I just love the color and the fabric (looks like velvet of some kind? Not a fabric expert here) and how it looks with lighter pillows on it. I stared at this picture for a few minutes and thought, “I wish I had a space for a small sofa that I could get in a FUN color and not worry about it at all. The game room? Nah, not in our plans for the room. Outdoor seating? Maybe. Wait a minute… we do have a small sofa/chaise purchase coming up soon. Could that color work in our bedroom, along with purple? YES.” I show it to Nick and he loves it as well. The more I think about it, the more I love it. Velvet-y fabric, peacock blue/teal, a jolt of color in our bedroom… I CAN’T WAIT AND I THINK WE’RE GONNA DO IT.
That book! I gave that book to my mom a LONG time ago – when I was in high school. Pretty good, 17-year-old Elisa, pretty good. Mom – do you still have it?
So frustrated with our nightstand situation. I’ve searched CL often and carefully and I’ve had no luck so far finding campaign nightstands. I think we should be hitting thrift shops more often, but haven’t been able to do that. I’ll search harder once we’re back in the States, but I think these nightstands are pretty and light and would look great in our bedroom. This is Plan B.
I know this photo has gotten a lot of hate in the blogs due to the mirror and the lamps, but look at the console table! I really like it. And I remembered this dresser that I saw on CL (when searching for campaign nightstands – a blogger suggested me to search “brass” and “dresser” or “table” to find campaign furniture):
Wait… When I look at these two photos together, they don’t look the same at all. Never mind.
Haven’t I seen this somewhere in the blogworld already, before this issue came out?
Yep, another room I’ve seen before. I remember these lamps. I grabbed a picture of that lamp from the internet a while ago and decided I wanted to DIY something like this – I liked the black lines around the base. To prove it to you – here’s a photo I had in my files:
This proves it – I read too much blogs. I’m gonna stop reading for now and do something around the house!
