Eames Rocker

We may be buying an Eames rocker for the living room!

Well, technically, it would be a “fiberglass shell chair” from Modernica. It’s an Eames rocker without the Eames license (though I’d argue that they’re just as authentic if not more so). Now I’m trying to decide on a color… hmmm.

Natural is nice, but so is white. Mustard looks yummy, but I’m afraid I’ll tire of it and it may not look right with the yellow curtains we already have. I thought the pink was too vivid, but it’s beautiful in this photo from Rachel’s House Tour on Apartment Therapy.

I’m wondering if the pink might be too much in my living room though, since we do already have pale pink walls and a pink zigzag rug. I think I love it in Rachel’s home because it’s an isolated spot of color.

My Living Room

I would put the rocker near the window and the Eames LCW that’s there now would be relocated to another room.

Another thing to keep in mind is that there is a sort of an Eames/Nelson knockoff chair (from IKEA) in Brandon’s office that’s right off the living room.

Would it be strange to see the real thing and a modified version in such proximity? Especially if both chairs were the same color?


Brandon Was Thinking About Buying a New TV

Apparently, he has the amazing ability to think things into existence! How else can yesterday’s surprise delivery be explained?

The New Television

My mom has requested that Brandon thinks about a new addition to her house. I asked Brandon what he thought about a certain egg chair showing up any day now at the house. No word yet, but we’ll probably think about ordering it soon.

That Yellow Really Ties Everything Together

I was looking through the new west elm catalog yesterday, and I really liked these nailhead linen curtains.

Brandon asked where we would even put them, and I said maybe the living room. They’re the same color as our couch, and I’m getting a little tired of the yellow curtains we have now. Well, Brandon started talking about how “we need the yellow because it brings color to the room and ties everything together, and we already have the dressmaker’s dummy that matches the couch…”

Sometimes I’m not sure how interested he is in the way our home is decorated, but he IS paying attention. :)
