in anticipation of moving into my new house, the three of us (kelvin, his brother, and i) went on a little road trip today to ottawa to visit IKEA. growing up, i always loved flipping through the IKEA catalogues. now, i actually get to buy things there! and by buy things, i don’t just mean buying a set of sheets or a frame, but real furniture for my house! how exciting! i will probably post things up as we get them or as we figure out what our rooms should look like. for now, we have figured out our study and we have our eye on this combination for the living room. we would probably get it in black-brown with two large open bookshelves on either side (not the glass cabinets – we can’t afford glass!). and we would go with a smaller bench and wall mount (2 sections instead of 3).
