It's Here...

Yes, I got the call at 8:37 a.m....ummm, I had to wake my daughter to get dressed because the delivery men were coming with my new sofa in 10 minutes!

I spent a very restless day at work...it didn't help that most of the bankers were off-site, so it was a little quiet...and I was a little anxious to get home!

After much huffing and puffing to get the rug down straight...it's been sitting here for over a month waiting for the couch to be purchased and delivered...then moving some stuff around for a photo op...



Here it is so far...me sitting happily upon my new sofa and rug! There are still lamps, another bookcase, two comfy chairs and a coffee table to go in the room before it's done...but I wanted the major pieces (the sofa and the rug) in before I went off and got the coordinating pieces.

So tell me...do you think it's going to look like a big comfy library-type room? Cause that's what I'm aiming for...to be surrounded by the things I love...sewing machines, fabric and books!

  5. We just bought a brown leather love seat and chair and it really looks like a den and it is comfy. Books everywhere though...no bookcases yet. It must be a trend!

  11. Working! Lovely sofa. I love bookcases. In my house they vie for wall space with artwork! Never enough bookcases imop. We redid my dd's bedroom a couple of years ago and added a wall of bookcases 9' tall. (high ceiling) She filled those up in no time flat! Book loving runs in the family. My ds and his wife are planning on turning their living room into a library too. Sewing and reading, what could be better?

  21. "Big comfy library-type room" is the very thought that crossed my mind when I saw the photo, before I read the post. Honest! :D

    What a great cozy place!

  23. When all of your favorite things surround you, how can you go wrong? This will be a wonderful room.

  24. Carolyn, I love the idea of a library look. You have a great looking rug and couch there. I turned a spare bedroom into a "library' and everybody gets a kick out of sitting in there. It's just a comfy couch, chair, and two floor to ceiling bookcases but it does the trick.

  25. Looks nice and comfy. It just doesn't get much better than being surrounded by all things sewing and reading.

  26. It's ALREADY looking like a 'big, comfy library-type room' - what a great looking room. We bought 2 brown leather loveseats a couple years ago and I was really surprised at how comfy they are...enjoy !

  27. looking wonderful - and YES!, I think you're achieving the look you're aiming for.
    So, besides sewing books, what type of books reside in your library?

  31. Your room looks great! The rug sure is pretty! Books, yep, next best thing to people for companionship that is! It's shapiing up to be a really comfy room. Good for you! You know, a nice nap on that couch sounds good right now! Power nap b/4 the sewing begins! LoL enjoy!

  32. It does look like a library, with the hardwood floor under that beautiful oriental, and the dark furniture! And you look so happy, finally having your rug in place and the beautiful sofa! What a happy way to start what promises to be a rainy weekend.
