Revisiting The Old Living Room vs. The New Family Room

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Living Room Inspiration, Our Apartment | 5 Comments

Hello, Kah here! It’s been a long year and a half! Glad to be back. You may have noticed that we started blogging again.Correction, Milla started blogging again. This is my first post for 2014. I refused to blog until Milla made several posts, since she was so far behind me in blog post count lol.

Those of you that have been following the blog lately, know that we have a new home. Correction again, Milla and her fiance have a new home. Breeze and I just live with them or maybe I just live with them and Breeze, I’m not sure if he has permanent residency lol. As of now Breeze is happy in his own bedroom, full of clutter. Yes, our cat has his own room…let’s move things along, shall we?

In our new home we have a family room and a smaller living room, that we will use as a sitting room/foyer. The family room is large in size 26×14, which means we have a lot of space to cover. A lot more than our last living room. For our new visitors, our previous living room at our apartment used to look like this:

I found some extra pictures on the camera that I forgot to edit and include in the living room reveal. So here they are. Note: Images will pin in original (larger) size.

Chair Addicts Part Deux

Posted on by Milla Posted in Furniture, Living Room Inspiration, Thrift Shopping, Vintage | 7 Comments

Hi Lovelies! Thanks for visiting as always. It is appreciated.

Anyway we have a problem. Our names are Kah and Milla and we are still addicted to chairs. Specifically, buying and restoring chairs. I had to convince my honey that you can never have enough seating. And if the chair is cheap, vintage, and in excellent shape, he has to let me buy it. But he also has hopes that we will reupholster and resell. I haven’t exactly agreed to that yet…should I feel bad? No? Great.

So over the weekend, Kah and I stalked Craigslist and visited a new thrift store. Between Saturday and Sunday, we acquired five chairs. Yes FIVE chairs! Before you say we are crazy. We have plans to furnish our large family room and foyer with plenty of seating.

Take a look below…

vintage chairs with french detail and velvet upholstery.

These two chairs were purchased from a thrift store in Laurel, Maryland, called Laurel Thrift Store. Aren’t they lovely?! We decided to check out this store for the first time since we were already in the area at a local flea market. We didn’t find anything of decorative value at the Flea Market, but man did we hit the jackpot at the thrift store!

This is beautiful. What is that Velvet: Furniture Inspiration

Hello lovely visitors! Sorry for the delay. I meant to update two Fridays ago, but our birthday was the 21st.  We are now 27 years old but look younger then most teenagers and often hear, “Ya’ll twins are so cute!” on a daily basis.  Then we suddenly started having internet connection issues. Comcast you are worthless. And even our mobile internet wouldn’t connect! Curse you Sprint.

So…we have a recent purchase to showcase. A wonderful Craigslist find of course. It is a button-tufted wingback settee/loveseat. We purchased this item for $75. It’s very Vintage. Very worn. In need of a makeover.

Disclaimer: Please excuse the baseboard molding-less  walls, we have to yet to reinstall that. Oh and any other miscellaneous items pictured as well.

Make It Tuft: Tufted Furniture with a Masculine Flair (But still Feminine for me)

Posted on by Milla Posted in Living Room Inspiration | Leave a comment

Milla again. I’ve been inspired lately, whoo. But I’ll let you all in on a little secret. Kah has refused to post something until she feels that I have caught up to her post total. Sad face.

I admitted to not posting as much, yet I participated in all the DIY. Go me! Either way we both suck. We deserted this site for over a year.

Anyway, I saw a post online for tufted a couch. And it’s free. Now I love anything free and tufted and I’m hoping to receive an email that the couch is still available. So I showed the couch to my electronics-loving, overly masculine husband to be and needless to say he was not overly impressed.

Not impressed

He was immediately like, “Where is that supposed to go?” The living room of course. He frowned. I had to keep screaming but it’s FREE before he said I could inquire about it. Yay!

Then I immediately began researching ways we could make a tufted couch look not so feminine, especially vintage couches.

I know when we think manly, we immediately think leather. Lots of leather.

However, Breeze will not allow us to own a leather couch and besides those are too dark for me. Where are the colors?
