Next week we take possession of our new home. Three thousand square feet of suburban goodness that I have only seen in pictures. But I just know that is it the perfect house. But, while real estate markets across the states keep tanking and tanking, the Toronto market is doing nothing but flourishing, so we strettttttttched to buy this house. Because we are what one would call HOUSE POOR, there is a good chance we will be living sans furniture for a while and will be making purchases slowly. There are so many things to purchase…couches, tables, TVs, rugs, artwork, office desks. And then there are the things you don’t even think about, like towels for guest bathrooms and mezuzahs for all the doorways.
Priorities, people. I visit websites and stumble things I like. I read magazines and tear pages out. I walk down the home section of Target and take mental notes of all things I want. I sit at dining room tables and get comfy on couches in furniture stores. I take pictures of things I like.
But because sitting on my ass and vegging is a big priority for me, second only to fresh breath, the first – and likely only – purchase we will be making will be family room couches and TEH TV for this here room….
(if you squint enough you can almost see what the room looks like)
I am thinking I want brown, and probably sectional. I sat in this lovely thing and I’m pretty sure I purred a little bit. It’s the perfect napping Â TV watching couch.
(Imagine it in chocolate brown, if you will, with my lovely ass parked right in the middle of it.)
What do YOU think? Help a girl out here. Like it? Don’t like it? Have a different suggestion to offer up? I am ALL EARS on this one. Also…wanna help me find a rug to go with a chocolate brown couch. I will probably be able to afford it in early 2011.
