(Please excuse the lack of styling and the rather unsightly dining chairs in the background - they are temporary).
I had wanted a square coffee table because I thought it would work best with the furniture layout, but that certainly limits your options. Originally, I had my eye on this one at Wisteria.
The drawbacks to choosing it were: not being able to see it in person, cost, shipping, etc.
The one we picked up in Calgary (from Peridot) was more reasonably priced, a slighter smaller size (which was better for our space), we got to see it in person, and shipping was very reasonable. We actually tried to fit it in our car but couldn't squeeze it in. The glass top fit though and that helped cut down on shipping costs and the fear of having the glass break en route. The table base arrived at our house before we did!
I'm still working on the plan for the living room as a whole, but here's a look at the fabrics I'm considering for pillows. Right now I'm also thinking yellow drapes, but that could definitely change.
Check out this space designed by Amanda Nisbet. Yellow drapes with a blue sofa. HUGE impact here.
The yellow is so bright and cheery and it looks great with blue and grey (colour we already have). Since the view out our window is pretty much white and brown for six months of the year, I could handle a bold splash of colour. My feelings might change once spring and summer roll around, but then winter will come again too - something to keep in mind.
Could you handle yellow curtains?
