Right now there's a lot of brown going on, but the goal is to have the sofa reupholstered in navy velvet (fingers crossed) soon so then it will be perfect. We had wanted a sideboard with sliding doors so we can put our docking system in there (that's how we listen to music). We can slide the doors open and pump the tunes. If the doors swung open they would get in the way. At first, I had picked the TORSBY sideboard from IKEA, but they just discontinued it. I had been disappointed but not anymore! In hind sight, the white might have been too much of a contrast with the navy and we already have A LOT of white going on.
We also found a great rug for the front entrance at a very affordable price. Come to think of it, this may have been the best find, because thus ends the ridiculous saga of sending rugs back and forth with West Elm. (That blue one didn't work out either.)
The blue BURSA rug was just too worn looking. It looked way too old and dirty for something new (and rather pricey). There was too much white coming through and the blue shades weren't as rich/deep as I was hoping.

And we picked up this side table which is counter height and sits elegantly beside our piano right now.
I also fell in love with these lamps but my husband wasn't too fond of them. We did bring them home to try them but they were quite large and the colour didn't work all that well either.
So that's a little update on a few new things for the house. Catch you later!
