First Major Purchase for the New Casa

While the house is being built, I’ve been busy planning how we’re going to decorate it.  I’ve made many a purchase in my head:)  First things first, we’re going to need a new couch.  The couches we currently have are old, dirty, smelly, and have been generally demolished by our dogs.

I spent a long time researching couches at various retail stores and online.  We determined that we wanted a sectional so that we could lounge comfortably (we spend a lot of time on the couch) and accomodate several people.  The requirements were:  comfy, simple style, durable and easy-to-clean fabric, in a neutral color.  I like to keep the basics neutral and use color in the accessories so they are easily exchanged when you get bored or want to switch things up. 

After much searching, we finally settled on this:

The Piece 4 Piece Sectional Wedge by Pottery Barn in Light Wheat. 

I like that it has a chaise at the end- I’m claiming that as my end of the couch:)  The only problem is, I’m not 100% sure that it is going to fit.  I’ve measured the room and the couch dimensions and I think it will work, but I won’t know for sure until we see it in the room.  I hope it works!

  1. Your couch is gorgeous! Can't wait to see it in the new room. You don't have a lot of rearranging options with sectionals…But hey, if it doesn't fit you can always put it up in the play room. Oh, I mean the man cave. 😉

    Hey, it may even fit in your GINORMOUS closet!! So jealous. 🙂

  2. I'm anxious to see if it works. I'm really serious about having you over to pick your brain! I'm going to be leaving my job soon, so I'll have a lot more time. And thanks for adding me to your blog roll! ps. do you know how I can respond to your comments so you are notified? I'm a real newbie at this:)

  3. You get to be a stay at home mommy?? ….No, I don't know how it works on Blogger. I am on WordPress. I wish blogger did that though but I noticed if anyone else I comment on uses blogger, I don't get notified either.

    We'd love to come over! But it doesn't seem like you need my help much!!

  4. Megan, You might want to take some masking tape and measure it out on the floor itself to see how it feels when you stand in the room. That may give you a good idea of the space.

  5. Thanks Joey! I have tried that and I "think" it works. Crossing my fingers. Can't wait for you to come back for another visit!

  6. I remember looking for our new couch 3 years ago when we moved into this house… we went to every store in the valley… we finally found one that fit our style/price at La-z-Boy. Large sectionals, though they don't give you a lot of re-arranging options, give you lots of snuggle-up and cozy-up options!
    Found you via NFF! : )

  7. Hi, I really love your couch and want one just like it but do u think the color is too bright for two 20 lbs dogs? I'm afraid but just love it. We are looking into leather sectional but I feel like leather is not very "homey" whats your take on it? Thanks
