Before I get into today’s post, I want to reflect on remembering September 11, 2001. I might be talking mostly about pretty decor subjects on this blog but this doesn’t mean I don’t think about serious things. I have mentioned before that this little blog is a way for me to get my mind off of being to sad or being too serious. It’s an escape but I still feel like I need to remind myself and everyone else that there are things to remember and think about that are more important than decorating. With me traveling a lot in airplanes to Europe September 11th is pretty much always on my mind and a reason for why I have become so scared of planes. And with all the things happening in the world right now I’m constantly scared which again is why this blog helps me.
So lets get to some unserious stuff before I start to cry: yesterday I was catching up on some long overdue blog reading and was chuckling while reading my friend Kimberly’s blog post about their man cave (HERE). I thought it was funny that it was risky to leave her other half home alone with the power tools because he might do something drastic. I never have that risk. He wouldn’t even consider picking up the power tools or even possibly the cleaning tools I left behind. He knows at least what a swiffer is though. When I returned from Germany I felt like I was going to have a complete meltdown and he thought the house was clean. I could go into details here but lets just leave it at cat diarrhea on the walls and floors and him telling me he didn’t know how to clean it and was pretty much waiting for me to do it. It sent me over the edge. Men! Or is only mine like this?
Oh wow was I trailing off here. I have been seriously thinking about doing something new to our basement too that has been neglected for quite sometime. It’s a difficult space to work with since it houses so so many things. And now I’d like to add a bed (as in pull out couch) to the room.
There are so many things I’d like to get new. And while I was dreaming of different layouts, I came up with this little moodboard which houses my favorite sleeper sofa. It’s my dream sleeper sofa but I don’t even know if we could get it down there and around the corners and doorways of our small basement entrance.
Isn’t it a pretty sofa? They even have it in blue velvet which would be my first choice:
I’d love my entire living room to look like this actually but I don’t want someone sleeping in my living room.
And I have been shopping for clothing like this as well lately. It all would fit perfectly into this room.
The above throw pillow has been in my inbox 4 times already. I love it so much but am not sure where to put it yet. If I wait too much longer it will probably be gone.
And I’m totally obsessed with the above tassel garland. I know you could easily DIY that one as well but there are some of us who just don’t feel like it, am I right?
Don’t you agree that is a dream sleeper sofa? My wheels are turning on how I could get the higher sides down into the basement.
Have a great weekend, I certainly have some more cleaning to do 😉
