My (mostly) finished Living Area

I met S&W this afternoon for brunch at Jamie Kennedy's Gilead Cafe. I dined on the tasty sandwich of the day which was smoked turkey with roasted red peppers and cheese and split the divine pulled pork poutine with S. W had plans with his brother so S and I went to the Metro in Liberty Village to pick up some groceries and stopped by the West Elm for a look-see.

I'm glad I did because I came away with some great finds, including a pair of the new medina stand and hammered trays which now serve as my coffee table. I had in mind the cabo coffee table here which I've seen described elsewhere as the waterfall table but I've also loved the look of the tray table in a space...probably ever since seeing a tour of Rashida Jones' studio in Domino. After inquiring about their return policy, I bought a pair to try them out and have decided that they're perfect.

So here's what my living area looks like now:

The picture ledge above my couch is still rather bare. I stopped by the nearby De Serres to order a couple mats for my prints and have yet to pick out all the photos I'd like to display but it's coming along!

I like the colour! Very nice!! :)

Also, I just noticed you are on Polyvore? Do you like it? I found out that someone posted one of my pieces there after reading an Etsy thread. Apparently people have been posting Etsy artists work there without permission or giving credit to them... It doesn't bother me - the person who posted my work linked it back to my official site! :D

I like that your living space is really coming along! It's refreshing and cheerful. I like the colour combinations. You've really made it your own. You make me excited to move in!

Looking good! I really like the tray tables. And purple carpet - bold choice! You've put together a great room.
