The New Look
I started looking for furniture. There were requirements. The living room is small and the furniture could not be too large. Neither one of us likes the sofas and chairs that are so deep that they are kind of loungers instead of chairs. The colors had to go with the current color scheme. I was willing to pay a reasonable price but not more than I would pay for a sofa and chairs in the USA. None of these seem too difficult but all of them together have been a formidable chore. I hate to tell you but I've been looking for just the right thing for about four years and never could find all the criteria at one time.
Last week we walked into a store that I've checked out many times before and there it was. We did measurements and came home to be sure. I called a couple of friends for their advice. One wondered about the color of the couch.....same thing I'd worried about. But Babs who had been a decorator in her previous life, told me the color would work. So we bought a small sofa and two chairs and we love them! Carly isn't so sure about the new furniture since she isn't allowed to get on it.
You know how it is though, now that I have the new furniture, I need to change a few things around, add one or two new lamps, find some new piece for the coffee table. It is always something!
