Designing a home ain't easy - help!!
You guys. I don't know how many posts I've started with, 'you guys,' by the way - but it just feels right.
So, as most of you know, in 2017 we bought a house. WHAT?! A) Exciting as fuck. B) Stressful as fuck. This year was full of so much wonderfulness, but now that the house is actually getting closer to being finished, I'm starting to overthink certain purchases I'll need to make once the property is done.
Currently, we have NO furniture. I mean, nothing. We have a bed, but it's kind of small and I feel like we should either get rid of it, or use it for the bed in our guest room and get ourselves a nice King-sized bed and not worry about it again for many many years.
BUT - since we have nothing, I'm finding that I like a LOT of styles and really appreciate multiple aesthetics. So, considering, how do you choose? How do you pick core details like a coffee table that really bring the room together while keeping in mind functionality and style?
Can my other home owner ladies, designers, friends, family, anyone at all - weigh in and help provide some tips and tricks for me! Once I compile some I can do a post on them! In the meantime, I've linked below a ton of styles I'm considering and thrown together multiple in the photo above that I really like.
Here is my thought process around some of these:
I love this Modway Garrison Coffee Table, because it looks super rustic, has little wheels on the bottom, and is a neutral wood color (our flooring is a grey wood). However, since it doesn't have the extra space underneath like this Wayfair Vernon Coffee Table, I wonder if it's actually practical for everyday life and storage. Then there is the Wayfair Priestly Coffee Table that is a mix of gold and marble (that feels somewhat unpractical to me) that I LOVE and think is super chic, but is this really something I won't get sick of after a while because it's such a specific taste?
