Deja Vu at the DC Design House

One of my favorite rooms in the DC Design House was the living room designed Pamela Harvey Interiors.

A set of tables on one side of the room caught my eye. I didn't get a picture of them, but you can see them in the 360 image that the Washington Post shared of the room.

Pamela posted them on her Instagram feed as well.

Those tables. I love them. I think I've seen them before...

Green Front Furniture has them! I recognized them from my last trip to Farmville and from my quick visit to the Manassas location the other day, thought he Manassas pair didn't have the same gold legs.

I'm trying to resist the urge to drive to Farmville right now...

Farewell Dhuirries, Hello Seagrass!

Another round of the One Room Challenge had started - that's the blogger event where people remake rooms in six weeks. There's no way I can handle such a project right now, but seeing other people taking part has inspired me to blog about recent changes in our living room. I haven't blogged since I painted the room pink.

Since then, I sold the busy, geometric dhurrie rugs that I got from Shades of Light. They were fitting with "blogger style" when I bought them, but not really my style. The day I sold the first one, I drove up the road to Floor Fashions of Virginia and ordered a custom seagrass rug to fit the room. Floor Fashions is a fun place and they have the ability to bind rugs for you. I had them do a thin, matching trim instead of the wider, tape-like borders I have on my other seagrass rugs.  I'm still waiting for the rug to come in, but I saw the style and binding I ordered when I walked into the DC Design House earlier this week. Seeing this made me eager for my rug to arrive!

By the way...the Pottery Barn sofa that I ordered in May finally arrived in late August. My streak with backorders continues, though. Acrylic drapery rods and hardware that I ordered in August just shipped this week. I didn't want to move forward with ordering drapery panels until I had rods up and could measure (more on that at another time).
