Happy Birthday to Me.

If I get a Crate & Barrel delivery on every Birthday going forward, I can live with getting old. Or oldER anyways. My long awaited media unit was delivered to me yesterday, on my birthday... What a nice gift to myself huh? It's a beautiful piece (in my opinion) that should last us a very long time... The living room is definitely at its maximum capacity furniture wise now, so it's time to start on the basement next. But not for at least 6 months, I still have to pay off the top floor! *sigh

Here are some more up to date pictures of the upstairs of our townhouse. Another major change was the updated ceiling light fixtures. We finally got rid of the god awful ceiling fixtures that came with the house. The more contemporary light definitely suits our aesthetic a lot better! I can't tell you what a difference its made to get those lights out of our house!
I'm also pretty happy with my new mid-century feeling accent chair for our bedroom. Believe it or not it's from The Bay. It was only $699, which for the style is a bargain. That look is normally found in higher end stores, like Elte for example, and would range in the $1799 and up mark. It has studs, 'nuf said.

Just stumbled upon your blog and I'm loving it! Can I ask where you purchased your living room trellis rug? It's EXACTLY what I've been looking for for our dining room. Cheers!
