It's Finally Here

The sofa I ordered from Sanctuary Design Studio finally came today. I'm so thrilled with my new sofa. It's exactly what I wanted... Sanctuary Design Studio did an AWESOME job!

So PRETTY!! Although it looks really white.. it's actually a creamy white. I LOVE it!
My small attempt to "stylize" the living room.
Love the French chairs but something is off to me...
I like this configuration but not LOVING it...

I did like this but it seemed like the big chair was too big.

Ummm, I think I'm not a fan of the backs of the chairs facing the foyer.

Doesn't work, right?

I thought this was a winner.. but then I didn't

The black chair kinda got lost in the room. Love that arm chair but not in this space.

I'm back to the French chairs.. I kinda like this..

But it still looks kinda off...

Hmmmm.. what to do? How do I make this work?

I was trepidatious about putting the chairs in front of the buffet..

But it WORKED and looked GREAT to me and the rest of the family.

It doesn't feel "off" or cluttered.. It makes me feel calm. I like calm.

I added the only rug I have to see how a rug would further anchor the space and while I won't be using a hide rug, I do see how it defines the space. I'm thinking of layering a wool rug with a flotaki rug. I love how glamorous flotaki rugs look so I want one.     

I really want my living room to look and feel glam... I know I need something on the bare walls, to style the buffet and the fireplace mantel, add something on the windows and the french door, pillows for the sofa and accessories. I also want to get new lamps and have a chandelier installed. So much to do and source but I'm loving every minute of it.

So, do you like the direction I'm going so far? And suggestions?

The sofa is STUNNING. My only suggestion for the room is that you package up that sofa and send it to me ;)

It's really coming together. I do like the last positioning and if the room brings you calm, nuff said.
