New Around The House

New year seems to bring along that unshakable itch to change around my home again. For the most part I’m pretty happy with my little semi; there’s a couple larger projects I’d love to get stuck into (if not for a lack of funds), although I love switching and changing furniture and decor around to make a room feel fresh and new again.


Since getting the IKEA Norsborg sofa for Christmas, I’ve been wanting to change a few living room pieces. The sofa is a little bigger than our previous one, so getting into the kitchen ended up being a little bit of a squeeze. I also felt like there was a bit too much teak in the room, and wanted a lighter, smaller piece. This is actually a stool but I loved the geometric shape, it’s pretty much exactly what I had in mind, except for the whole being a stool rather than a table thing. Plus, considering I found it in the CLEARANCE section of my local TK Maxx with no idea why, I couldn’t really live it behind.

I also moved my vintage cocktail chairs into the living room – I’d listened to enough of Kane complaining about how uncomfortable they were and wishing for the others back in the conservatory (he heads there after work to relax for a bit). So they’re in the living room now, and I’m okay with it! I’d like to add a bit of a relaxed, bohemian vibe to this room, and I think they’re a good addition.
