Wish List: Pink Upholstery

From blue velvet sofa to pink velour upholstery, my wish list just keeps expanding. Right now, I am absolutely l-o-v-i-n-g the look of dusty pale pink upholstery, especially when paired with darker tones like rich wood floors.

But in case you’re like me and probably can’t commit to an entire sofa cloaked in this fabric, a throw pillow would look just as good!

Wish List: Clear Console

An acrylic console table first caught my eye a while ago and I haven’t been able to shake it ever since. I just love how it can both blend in as well as make a big, bold statement at the same time.

Thankfully, this piece may not stay on my wish list for much longer—we have the perfect place for it right under the windows in our living room. If and when we do make the purchase, I’ll be sure to update you with photos!

Wish List: Rocking Chair

Up until recently, I was guilty of dismissing rocking chairs as antiquated and stale. But then all of a sudden, I started seeing them pop up all over Pinterest, Instagram, and design catalogs. Now, not only can I say that I have changed my tune about rocking chairs, but they’re also officially on my wish list.

Apartment Wish List

Ok, ok, I’m guilty. I would make updates to my apartment on the daily if I could. What can I say? I just love making little changes and updates here and there!

So it should come as no surprise that I have a few areas/items on my wish list at the moment. Here’s a little breakdown:

Ever since I wrote this post about home bar necessities in which I repurposed the bar cart from my kitchen, I’ve been wanting another one for our living room. I think it would help round out the space, as well as make our home better-equipped for entertaining.

When we first moved in, we had absolutely nothing. First on our list? A bed, of course. Since we were in such a rush to buy a bed so that we could sleep in our own place, I didn’t even think about a rug to go underneath it. But now that we’re much more settled, it’s high up on my list.

My boyfriend is in love with the photograph we have above our dining table, but if it were up to me, we’d have floating shelves topped with pretty pottery and the like.

This chair is actually a newer addition, and while I love it, I think we can ultimately find a better home for it in our living room. In its place, I’d love to find a tall side table that would help create a landing place for mail, keys, etc.

Wish List: Clawfoot Tub

Rhetorical question: Is there anything chicer than a clawfoot tub? When I was in elementary school, my mom picked me up from a sleepover with one of my close childhood friends. I remember hopping in her car and immediately asking her if we could get a clawfoot tub just like the one my friend had. Fast forward 15+ years later, and I’m still waiting on that tub. Cue: my wish list.

Wish List: Upholstered Dining Chairs

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an affinity for skirted dining room chairs. I love that they can read both elegant and casual at the same time, depending on how you stage the table.

Since we currently have a round dining room table that seats four, these upholstered chairs would look too busy and cramped–hence why they’re on my wish list for our future home.

Pro tip: Opt for ones without a pleated bottom for a clean and sleek look.
