Three furniture items I splurged on for our house

Hope you are having a good summer so far.  I’m back in LA and in full swing decorating this house once and for all!

To start out I finally decided on the first big furniture items for the house. I like to start with pieces that make the house functional as well as the ones that are the most expensive, that way those pieces can function as a guide for the more inexpensive items.

This week I splurged on a few items I’ve been drooling over for some time. I finally bought a Modshop sectional in a lush dark navy velvet similar to this one below…

It’s a huge piece 10 x 11 feet that will go in our TV/movie room.

I ordered it with lucite legs, chrome nail head trim and no tufting on the seats.

Can’t wait.

I’m obsessing over navy and any kind of blue lately for some reason. I know velvet is not the most practical choice for a room Luke and his teenage friends will hang out in, but sometimes life is too short to be practical. You just have to have what makes you happy, and deal with the consequences later.

The room will have draperies in this banana leaf fabric. Can’t get enough of anything leaf either.

The second big splurge was a dining room table. The look for the house is midcentury, Spanish and modern mixed in to one,  so I decided to go with a cement top and black X-legs.

This one above had too thick of a slab so I went with the faux top for a slimmer look like the one below, which will work better with the house.



The third and final splurge was a Jonathan Adler Meurice chandelier….


Can’t wait to see how this will look next to the kitchen.


While I’m waiting for these pieces a million other decisions have to be made!
