When we last looked at the back room it was January and we'd framed in the fire place,
painted the walls,
hung curtains and moved in the sort of crappy, not at all matching, one piece of a sectional couch.
Since then we've come a looooooooong way and have nearly finished the room. All that's left to do are a few finishing decorating touches and maybe some furniture reorganization.
First up on the list, new furniture and a rug!
We knew that out space was fairly limited so we went out looking for a couch and 2 chairs. Ideally we wanted some sort of slipper chair and spent a bit of time shopping around. Eventually we decided on this sofa, the matching arm chair and coordinating accent chair from The Brick.
I wasn't 100% sold on the pattern on the slipper chair, but that can always be covered/changed in the future. The colour of the sofa and arm chair is called Graphite and is a really great grey/brown mix that falls nearly perfectly between the colour of our floors, curtains and walls.
Around the same time we also picked up a laaaarrrrrggeeee shag rug from Home Sense.
Here are Derek and Chloe modeling the new additions.
Next was finishing up the fire place!
