Pretend shopping: Living room


All the shopping posts on Fresh Basil may lead you to believe I have some sort of skill in this department. In reality, I'm terrible at deciding on something to purchase, and then I wage a long internal battle to convince myself to part with the cash necessary to complete said purchase. Plane tickets and restaurants are easy, but a couch?! Oh my.

That said, I would really like to make a few grown-up furniture purchases for the new apartment. I tend to lean heavily on neutrals, but I'm trying to branch out a little more. I made the top collage first, and was having so much fun, I made an alternative, lighted-up version, too!



Do you have a favorite? I think I like the top one, but I go back and forth!

P.S. Thank you all so much for your good luck vibes -- I think they worked! I'll share more soon.

  2. I like them both! The bottom one seems more beach house like, and the top one, just a casual living room! They're both lovely though!

  3. Thanks, Sam!

    Anna, I like your assessment! I think I might like to pretend I live in a beach house. Would be fun, right?!

  5. so looking forward to seeing how the apartment search and decorating goes! we're also on the hunt for a new 'flat' and i'm SO SO SO looking forward to decorating - such that i'm spending oodles of time on antiquing websites and dreaming of colour schemes - it might help if we actually knew where we were living first right?

  6. Sar, the rug on the bottom reminds me of your bedroom now! I thought of you when I put that in.

    MBB, it is so easy to put the decorating (horse) before the apartment (cart)! It's so much more fun to look at antiques than housing listings.

  9. Kelly, I love that couch, too! The bottom living room option has recently slipped into first place.
