A week ago at work, a customer asked me about how I'd decorated our home now that I was a married woman. I did my best not to laugh in her face.
To say that I have a poor taste in home furnishings is probably under-selling how bad I am at decorating.
I just can't see cohesive "style" in home stuff. I like this, I like that, ohh red is a fun color... and then I'm off pairing leopard-print sheets with something that doesn't match.
Life is hard, people.
We have a couch on order from a furniture store.... and it may arrive in 2-6 weeks. In the meantime, I am trying to "enjoy" our last days with the hideous old couch and try to plan for what the next furniture purchase might be.
And then, I spotted it in the Target ad preview last week. Cue that falling-in-love feeling.
It's not exactly the height of style or sophistication (ok, maybe in my mind it is), but it has lots of storage and could be used as a TV stand (which we need now-ish) and again later as a hutch in another room.
I wish it were wood, and if I had any energy I'd head to our local furniture mart and look for a real-wood version... but I'm not gonna lie, I like it all the same.
I've hated Mr. RH's glass-and-black TV stand since I became acquainted with it - and the thought of sending it packing just makes me heart go pitter-patter.
Unfortunately, we bought the couch sight-unseen (I am winning at this decorating thing, let me tell you...), so I'm not exactly sure of the color. I would say it's a gray-beige color. Greige. I do watch some Million Dollar Decorators, you know.
This is the pic from the website:
The question is - do I play it safe with the cabinet in boring black or white? Or - my favorite and most overused color - gray? In my heart, I'd really like to go for a bolder pick, but is that just dumb? Or is the cheapie furniture dumb in the first place and I should just skip the whole thing?
Then again, a piece of Target furniture is not a life commitment. It just feels like one today.
Opinions, more-decorator-inclined friends?
