New additions

We seem to be in a state of chaos at my house these days.  My roommate, Hannah, bought a house, which is great – for her.  But for Cody and I, who have been in this position before, it meant spiraling into New Roommate Mode. 

Lucky us, we found Autumn, a fantastic new roommate!  The only problem: she needed to be in mid-month, and Hannah wouldn’t be out till December.  So right now, my living room has all of Autumn’s possessions piled to the ceiling and poor Autumn is spending her nights on the couch.

But despite the chaos, I always get excited about an opportunity to change, refresh and update my living quarters.  Especially around the holidays!  Today Cody will pick up the couch he found abandoned on Lee Street from the upholsterist (vintage parlour frame, recovered in blue/grey chenille); next week, the dark wood, vintage coffee table from Clement, our favorite home decor store in Little Rock.

For once, we’re actually agreeing on the general direction we want the living room to take!  So I thought I’d post a few photos that we’ve drawn inspiration from.

    Autumn’s got cute stuff. Get ready for an awesome living room makeover. In fact, I think I need to watch you guys arrange and rearrange while I drink wine, relax and occasionally shout out my opinion.
