I am moving to Waco in a few weeks and am trying to figure out the style of decor that I want to use. I have a red microfiber couch that I am using and I have a yellow lamp. I didn't really want to go fancy shmancy, but I wanted to go livable. With that in mind I have found several pieces that I could see myself buying. I have recently fallen in love with Craigslist (Furniture) and Etsy (furniture) and of course Ebay, however my favorite is Etsy. Soo many fun things out there!
Here is the dilemma I have:
I have a kitchen and nothing for it! I have one crockpot! Thats it haha. I will eventually need decor in there, but to get started I need a kitchen table and chairs. The place I am living has a bar, so I will also need bar stools.
I love the look of this barnwood kitchen table. I feel like it will last me a LONG time and this particular table with one bench is $200 which I think is very reasonable. And these bar stools are $30 a piece and I would only need 2! I would most likely paint them a really fun color - (yellow?) What do you think? If I go for this rustic chic look - will it compliment the red couch I have?
I love this red bench ($64) and it only measures about 34 inches long and they say it sits pretty close to the ground. What do you think about putting this by the door and placing a wicker basket on top of it and these hooks ($9) above it. Oh and I would love to get a framed mirror for by the door ($190 - obviously not this EXPENSIVE mirror)! I just think mirrors are so elegant taking up space!
I have the Red couch, but nothing else. I was thinking I will need to end tables, a coffee table, a chair, and an entertainment set - maybe 2 chairs.
Going along with this shabby/rustic chic look - I am thinking about mimicking either of these 2 designs for my living room entertainment area... What do you think?
I was even thinking of going to Staples's and getting an industrial print 3 feet by 4 feet and placing it on top of some old wood that I (doctor) up over Christmas Break.
For my entertainment set area - I was thinking of just using this bench and mounting my TV on the wall and placing things on the bench under the TV (like the picture on the left). I don't know if I would use lamps over there - but I have tons of pictures, that I could even hang on the wall - or it could just be really simple (I might aim for simple) What are your thoughts?
After that these are just some of my other knick-knacks that I have found that I like and I would like to use somewhere in the house.
I love this curtain thing in my room: The BIG question is if I don't have a posted bed like that will it look as cool? And I am not quite sure I like the Sun Mirror in the middle. But I love the black and whites over on the far wall! Very simple! LOVE IT!! (my cousin Meg always nags me, I love the way simple looks, but I am ALWAYS saying I need more on the walls!)
I ALSO LOVE THE PILLOWS on this bed :) I need more pillows on mine. All I have is 2 yellow and one green in the middle. And this full length mirror inside of a door - I really wanna try this - anyone with me?!
This Room is also a favorite - I don't know if I could be that chic though with the way my living room will look?
Which of the bed rooms are your favorite? I am looking for some honest feedback here because I move in a little over a month! AHH.
