It has been quite a long time since I’ve done an Intentional Obsession post (in fact, many of you probably never saw those first few posts on my old blogger site). To recap the I.O. posts, the idea is that I love to get new things as much as I like getting rid of old/unused/unloved things. Keeping in mind my vision board, I like to keep tabs on items that I would like to incorporate in my life. Some things I get right away, others I research and ponder for a bit longer.
This I.O. is one of those pondering pieces. As you can see below, the living room/dining room in the new apartment has lots of light, space, and a great view of the next door neighbors (ahem).
Erwin and I have decided to make the back wall (on the right side of the photo) the “dining room” with the dining table from my studio. The “living room” will be on the left side of the photo. Even with this division of space, the room is still pretty large and I think a sectional might be the best choice for seating and cohesiveness.
Enter West Elm’s Blake Sectional. It was love at first sight. The color also matches the granite in the kitchen perfectly (which is just out of view on the right side). It’s a wee bit pricey, but according to Julie and Julia, egg harvesting brings in about $7,500. (I kid, I kid.)
Seriously though, what do you think? Is the “intentional sectional” a good fit for the room?
