You guys, I love this piece. I don’t know if I can give it up. Bryan might have to pry it from my cold dead fingers to hand over to its future buyer. And the buyer will be all like: “Why is there a corpse hugging it?”
And what will you say then, Bryan? Hmm?
I only buy pieces I love, so I’m always saying, “Oh, this is my favorite!” Which is usually true at the moment, and then I find something I have even stronger feelings for.
This one is definitely up there with my chesterfield. Speaking of which, I can’t even handle how awesome they are together. This is what Restoration Hardware dreams of being when it grows up!
Why, you might ask, is there a fireplace behind the sofa in all of the pictures? That is a very good question. There just so happen to be approximately 8 other pieces of furniture crammed into this small room, and this was the only furniture placement with decent lighting that I was able to improvise.
After setting up this shot, I realized it looked a little bare, stark, and odd – what with the fireplace and the empty window – so I rigged up some ambiance.
Wow, Brynne, I’m impressed. You went and quickly hung curtains so your photo would be perfect!
Wait until I show you how I hung them. Then you’ll be even more impressed. And/or amused.
Look, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to compose her shot and achieve pretty filtered light. I won’t tell if you don’t!
I also thought the trunk looked a little empty, so I tried out a shot with these cool articulated wooden hands I happened to have at the ready.
What, you don’t keep creepy carved body parts close by?
If you ever need help accessorizing, just let me know! I’d be happy to lend a hand.
(Gosh, I’m so ashamed of that. Let’s pretend it wasn’t a terrible pun.)
Well, let me know – what do you think of my newest treasure? And my curtain hanging methods? I plan to hang all my curtains like this now; it’s so simple and chic. [Sarcasm]. Do you have any dirty little photography secrets? Do share!
