Okay, guys. I’m SO SORRY about this morning’s post. I wrote it last night when I was clearly feeling really down in the dumps, and now that I’ve had a night’s rest and a good breakfast/lunch, I’m feeling much better. I’ve been like this forever: hysterical at night when I’m overwhelmed or stressed; fine the following morning. (Don’t even get me started about the time I couldn’t find a ruler at 2 a.m. and Mitch had to go buy me another one because I couldn’t stop crying. Granted, I was overwhelmed about the Bronx like WHOA, but still. #crazyperson)
Oh, sleep. It’s bizarre to me that no one knows truly understands why it’s so good for you… but thank heavens that it can make everything better. ;)
Bottom line: I’m definitely overwhelmed and stressed about the loss, but it’s not as bad as I made it out to be. I just shouldn’t write emotional posts late at night, haha.
But let’s get back this blog back to a good place. I recently found out that I’m going to be working with Pier 1’s new Lincoln Park flagship store (located at 1574 N Kingsbury Street –find the closest store to you here!) to furnish and decorate our open-concept living and dining rooms. Eeee! I’m beyond excited about it, and it’s it’s helped SO much to take my mind off the flood.
Mitch and I have been having a ton of fun perusing the website and wandering through the store for inspiration, and I’m happy to report that I finally made a decision on the dining room chair saga of 2015: four velvet navy and two damask. Thanks so much for all your input. It truly helped! (Though I just found these gorgeous floral chairs, and now I’m wondering whether I should switch the damask out for the floral. Thoughts?!)
We also decided on an accent chair! I’d been looking for the perfect affordable rattan chair for the longest time, and I fell completely in love with the Bulacan in “Natural.” I’m so excited about it. I got a navy cushion for it, and a blue patterned one, too. (Love that I can switch out the cushions whenever I’m looking to switch up the look!) The Bulacan was a little tricky to track down, but I’ve linked to 14 other amazing accent chairs above — all of which I considered. (I’m actually thinking about getting one for the office, too.)
Which one is your favorite?!
