Living Room Update: embracing the beige + eclectic mix

Chairs, spiral lamp, Persian cat, blue nude vase, fiddles, rubber tree, terrazzo side table: Got it!

Tile cubed glass top coffee table (I made that up!), rug, reupholster my sofa: Needed.

Visualizing where this place is headed. It’s been a wip for almost 3 years. When will I finish? There’s a note on my refrigerator that reminds me to FINISH and like where I live. I’m always living in design limbo. Home limbo. Life limbo. Your home, no matter where you are, what stage you’re in, should be a place you love. I truly believe that. Why isn’t my home a place I love? Working on it! 

I’ve been obsessing over 1970s Superstudio tiled tables for what feels like eons now and while playing with this mock up, it occurred to me 2 cubes and a glass top would look pretty darn cool. After fretting over how to do this myself, not spending $1000 on a table, I finally watched some youtube videos and realized tiling a small table is pretty easy. Post-Christmas project? I’m feeling inspired!

The pink Gilmour chair is literally in production and will be delivered next month. Thus my playing around with this room. I have so many pieces I love and have worked slowly over time to collect (intentional decorating) but have had no real plan going until now. 

What are you working on? How do you stay focused? Stay inspired? And finish?
