Majorly stoked to show you guys the big change that just happened in my living room. Are you ready?
Now I don’t want to be that person that gets into a new relationship so quickly after getting out of an old one and tells you that this is ‘the one’, but here’s what it is: I’M IN LOVE LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
I mean, check him out.
Do you love it? I MADLY LOVE IT.
For those of you wondering why I would make this change so quickly, here’s the thing. I had owned the blue couch for about a year and a half but a lot of you only saw it once I did the living room reveal on the blog a few weeks ago (here it is). And when West Elm offered to give me a new couch, I found myself with zero self-control and immediately took them up on it.
I went to the store with much excitement but I was clear – if I didn’t love another couch as much as my blue one, I’d stick with the blue because I wasn’t emotionally done with it – I mean, sure, it was 1.5 years old but I’d imagined having it on me for 4-5 (if the spirits of the blue couch are still lurking in my apartment, please understand that if you had a choice between your husband and Ryan Gosling, you’d pick Ryan. Your husband would pick him too, it’s that kind of a thing).
But I saw this one. And I said yes so fast, N had to take a second to recover because that’s not how quick he got a yes out of me. Hashtag shit happens.
I absolutely love this guy. This midcentury-esque shape is my DREAM shape, it’s the one I’ve always, always wanted. The legs are totally speaking to my soul. The color is SO much nicer, it’s made the room brighter and you guys know the room is already so bright. It’s larger than the previous one too so even more spacious for three people to hang out together (four on movie nights). And since the seats have more depth than the blue one, it’s way more comfortable.
And you know the best part? It looks even better in real. Everrrrryone who’s come over since then has absolutely loved it.
So basically, my heart is with me no more. Tell me your thoughts?
The couch in-store now at West Elm and is priced at AED 5400.
