Im getting ready to move across country from Ohio to Vegas. Sadly the apartment Im going to be moving into is filled wall to wall with new but light carpet beige carpet. I struggle to find many inspiring ideas anyway as for everything I find is laminate, concrete or hardwood. I would love to see a post filled with inspirational ideas of spaces with carpet for us user who aren't lucky enough to be blessed with the others!Thank you
Hello,I just purchased a leather (ebony) Flight Recliner from DWR. I'm looking for a sofa that would work well with the Flight Recliner. I like the following sofas: (Room and Board) Dean, Reese (although not a huge fan of buttons on seat), and (Mitchell Gold) The Kennedy. Which would work best with the Flight Recliner or do you have other sofas you can suggest. Thanks,Jeff
I found a leather couch and chair that is EXACTLY what I would LOVE to have - the closest to a chesterfield I will ever get in my lifetime. But, the leather is horribly dry and uncared for. It doesn't appear to have actual rips. I think the previous owners simply never conditioned it (or not often enough). The frame/cushions/springs are also fine, the only problem is the leather(seems beyone other posts regarding scratches (this would be a full recondition). Is this worth the trip/work? I have a small apartment, so there will be a lot of furniture shifting/culling if I get these pieces, so I would rather get some good advice first.
Thanks in advance!
I saw that may comments suggested window film, and I agree it is the best way to go. You get the coverage/privacy you want. Most filter out the UV rays so your furnishings and flooring are protected, and you can create a beautiful decorative focus. I've done a few mock ups of your door with Wallpaper For Windows film in a couple of designs if you'd like to see them. I can't upload them here, but If you'd like I'll email them to you. I'll also post them on google+. https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/111280723423154524568/111280723423154524568/posts
I had asked a question the other day, I received something that told us that you got it. I was wondering if you will contact us to let us know if you are going to post it so people can help us solve our dilema.Thanks, Heidi
I have so many ideas about how to make our house a really nice, happy place. If I carried them out, I think my son would be more centered and do better in school, I'd be happier, and I might even not hate living in this city so much. But every time I decide I need to do something...it doesn't happen. I just can't get myself to take action, because in some way that feels like agreeing to stay here longer. I can see that logically, staying here wouldn't be so bad if our house was more welcoming, but I seem to be stuck in this loop.Looking at the "what we believe" statement on this site, I hope you'll have some suggestions for me. Thanks!
I'm told my question has arrived. Yay! How long does it usually take to get suggestions? -- 1 day? more? I am fascinated to have found this site -- hope to use it more and more. I started in a 7-bedroom house for the first 47 years, then a 3-BR condo alone for the next 5 -- and now I'm in a lovely but small single apartment, still alone, but near my kids -- with a great view, but little room for plants! Hope to hear from you soon ...
Did you find the right sofa? I hope so, but if you're still looking, take a look at the Ekornes Stressless "Space. I is available in three-seat and two seat, low back and high back.http://europeanleathergallery.com/ekornes_stressless_space_low_back_sofa.html
Here's a picture of how I store mine in a wall/door mount cabinet:http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/1200x/26/43/59/2643595a177bb7994b14a82a97ec7e78.jpg
