And while it seems on the surface that it fucking sucks for me too, the fact of the matter is it totally doesn't, and, if anything, it is making me much more thoughtful about how I spend money. Always a good thing, if not particularly enjoyable. Anyway, all that's just to let you know why I will be continuing to whine about spending limits and the like. This post is really about something totes different: all the items I need to make my home beautiful. (Not ALL the items. Just the short term, maybe-one-day-attainable stuff).
Let's start with the entryway. There's a lamp I've been coveting lo these many months, and one day it will be mine. Mark my words:
|Capiz Shell Lotus Lamp, $420 at Worlds Away|
Here's the table I want for my chinoiserie lamps and foo dogs:
|Console Table, $309 at Wayfair|
Moving on to the living room, I'd like to replace the couches, and have found what I believe to be a remarkably cost-effective solution, although I would get two of them in camel velvet:
|Carla Couch, $699 from Custom Sofa Design|
As for the floor, I have once again dug up a relative bargain:
|Oriental Rug, $755 at Rugs USA|
|Greek Key Lamps, $355 from High Street Market|
|Blue Lamps from... Etsy? Maybe?|
|Skyline Bed, $560 from Wayfair|
So there you go. I think that's not too much to ask from 2012, right? I'm sure you agree with me. The mood I'm in, EVERYONE better agree with me. I'm going to take a muscle relaxer and go to bed.
