the couch, the couch!!!

as promised, here it is: the couch we waited seven long months to call our own.  two more months and we could have had a baby.  HA!  but in all seriousness it was totally worth the wait.  it's the right size and style for the room which is a bit of a decorating challenge due to it's shape and layout (see more here).  and although having a custom couch made was an investment, a nerve wracking experience and something i might not be inclined to take on again, i think for this room it was the best option for us.  so friends, welcome to our living room where you can now SIT ON ACTUAL INDOOR FURNITURE!!!!  

i know you've also got your eye on that credenza, which is a fabulous loan from our friends max and margaux. it'll get us by until we tackle stage two of operation living room make-over.  and the rug, that's new since this sad update too.  it brings in the warmth and coziness i wanted to help balance out the concrete floors!  next on the list is pillows (which we're going back and forth on because i'm thinking the ones we have are working out pretty well for the moment) and a coffee table.  can't wait to share more with you as we move forward!  xx- sarah

*edit:  the rug is from anthropologie (sold out), the morroccan wedding blanket is from here, the neon vase is from here, the fringey throw pillows are also from anthropologie and the pink pillows are from a recent trip to tulum.  hope that helps!

Sarah! The couch is GORGEOUS. Leather? Fabric? Either way it is very clean, modern, and just beautiful. Can't wait to see the style evolution of this room - thanks for sharing.

So. I think instead of going to Mexico at the end of the year, we're just going to vacation at your place. K? Love the couch, lady!
