Living Room Wish List

It has come to my attention that our living room is rather vacant. Here are few pics as a reminder:

While I am a fan of all things uncluttered and clean, our living room goes beyond this into the realm of empty and unfinished.
There are a number of reasons for this including:

  • Fear of purchasing a big ticket item that doesn't look good in the space and then having to live with it because it can't be returned
  • Lack of funds
  • Fear of children destroying our 'good stuff' (especially in the rug department)
  • Lack of time
  • Too much of a dreamer / not enough of a getter doner

But! I am resolved to take action. One of the big plans in the works is to get a new fireplace mantel and surrounding  built-ins. All in white with styled up shelves. If you've ever followed me on Pinterest you would quickly see that I pin ALOT of fireplaces. So...l have a lot of inspiration...I just need to get the funds and the time to oversee it.

Along with the new fireplace (more to follow on that later this week), the room needs coffee tables, end tables, lamps, a slipper chair, an ottoman, and at some point when the danger of my kids spilling things is reduced....a new rug.

Here are some the gorgeous items I have my eye on at West Elm right now:

Here is a link to it at West Elm in case you are interested

I am also digging their coffee tables:

and end tables:

Hopefully, these items are in stock at the Toronto store as they aren't available for shipping to Canada. Stay tuned!
