We are one month out from the big magazine shoot and all of a sudden we have some major changes we are dealing with. It’s not that I wasn’t happy, it’s that I thought that I might be more happy. I want it to really represent my style and my intent for this house. So there were a few things we had going on that is now up for analysis. Is this the best ___ we could have? Could we have a better __? Sound a little crazy? Maybe. But when your work is going to be in a national magazine, representing your style, you want it to do just that, represent your style. So here is a brief update on what I’m searching for and what might be changing. Decisions are being made at a rapid pace people, which is never ideal but FYI decisions are always made at a rapid pace in this situation, so we/I shouldn’t be surprised. Ready to see what’s going on in this head of mine?
The Living Room Sofa
I’m on the hunt for a vintage living room sectional. I want something 70’s and vintage and weird. But it also needs to be something super editorial and while simple and comfortable, something that really says ‘me’. I found one on Chairish but we taped it out and it’s too big, so I’m still on the hunt for that perfect ‘weird vintage Emily sofa’.
The Family Room Sofa
The family room sofa is great as well, but yes, maybe it could be more our style. Something slightly larger, in a more kid-friendly fabric. I’m on the hunt.
Fabric Choice For Banquette
We are up at the mountain house right now choosing fabrics for the banquette and you guys definitely played a role in this. I want leather and linen, done in an interesting way. But not something too trendy or impractical and yet I NEED it to be comfortable.
We will make the decisions TODAY.
This space was a play area but we think it should be a home office, as I’ll be writing the book two this summer. Pretty darn excited about that idea. And while we previously called this the yoga loft (because I did yoga here once, for 20 minutes) it would be a dreamy place to write.
I know this is a half-assed ‘Mountain House Monday’ but that’s because we are up there shooting the bathrooms this week and scrambling to finish the rest of the spaces. It doesn’t stress me out in a bad way – it’s actually SO MUCH FUN. But yes, deadlines loom and I really want it to represent what we originally envisioned for this house – a Scandi- Rustic – Refined – Contemporary – Minimalist – Family – Friendly – Calm – Cabin – Chalet. You know something simple and easy. Ha.
It’s challenging and yet so fun.
