I have been meaning to post this for awhile, photography was my stumbling block. I’ll get to that later.
What is new around the Sanctuary Home?
I have only used this baby once, but it is pretty much life changing. I am dying to whip up some cookies or a cake – the only problem is then I will eat those cookies or that cake. Gotta wait for an occasion.
I received two Tolix chairs for an anniversary present last month. Yep, my husband is full of awesomeness! Now, I am on the hunt for at least two (maybe 4) more.
A few months ago, I finally banished the matching sofa and loveseat look in my living room look by replacing the loveseat with of a pair of these chairs. This post has been waiting a long time for the above photo, these chairs are quite possibly the hardest thing I have ever photographed. Granted, I am not a particularly good or studied photographer. I tried at several times of day with my iphone, the wing on the left hand side always ended up with a crazy white glare from the wood blinds (which are on my list for replacement…one thing at a time). The weird light you see on the right side is the doggy door. I will never be a professional photographer, that is for sure.
Anyway, this is the look I am going for:
Next, I am banishing the sofa.
I had always hoped it would look like this, and the denim has faded, but it just looks seriously sloppy. I have an email out to a CL option (shhh, don’t tell my husband, the post contains the words french, antique and velvet, I can’t imagine he is going to be excited about that option).
