Well today Andy and his dad met with the contractor again and discussed "phasing." He is going to work up another plan and exclude some of the rooms/things that we don't necessarily NEED right now. Then we can work our way towards that. I am hoping this fits better into our budget. With the new plan we would be holding off on openining up the staircase to the upstairs and leaving the door/wall on the stairway for now, not finishing the 2nd guest bedroom in the basement (we still would finish the other) and also he would look into holding off a couple of cosmetic things we want to put in the workout/playroom. Crossing all of my fingers and toes that we can move forward with the renovation with those adjustments.
Well to fill in the disappointment of the basement news I decided to do a little refreshing upstairs. I rearranged some things, and added some decorative pieces to the living room. I actually just ordered a new shag rug for Kenne's bedroom (it will match her decor in her new bedroom as well) and I also ordered new dining room chairs!
I have been obsessed with the Marais chairs for some time now. I really love the french feel to them and have been drooling over the ones at Pottery Barn.
What I wasn't drooling over was the price of these bad boys. So I kept looking. The first place I went was overstock because let's be honest here... Overstock is my go-to place for everything. They are so well-priced. I am so happy I was able to find exactly what I was looking for and ordered these yesterday!
They came in a set of 4 so I am going to look for some type of upholstered chairs for the end seats but I want to wait to see the height so I know what to work with. I cannot WAIT for them to get here. our table is a plain wood table. It is going to look totally fabulous in my head. Let's just hope it looks how I think it will. I am going to add some pop of color for the table centerpiece. Ahh! Such a fresh look. I am so in love with the mix of styles.
What kind of decor styles are you guys loving right now??
