Office Block

It's June and that means that the move-in date for our new house is scheduled for two months out.  While the prospect is exciting, the decorating is daunting.  I have been having severe design block lately, and have also been plagued with indecisiveness.  Big decisions were made in March and items ordered but now I feel stagnated.  

I am deciding between two fabric choices for a sofa in our family room, I need to pick out window treatments for the entire house, pick out furniture for our office, and the list goes on.  Then, I went online only to find that the Urban Outfitters Settee I was set on for the office is sold out (not even pictured online anymore).  Anyone know where to find a yellow settee at a reasonable price?  I also need to find a chair for the desk.  Here's what I have so far: 

Suggestions welcome!

  1. Is finding a resaonsable settee and recovering it an option? Also not sure what you mean by reasonable but I ask becuase i helped a friend with her bedroom and we ended up finding a well priced settee that was covered in a horrible fabric, bought the blue velvet and had it recovered and it was fabulous and still less than what she had seen other settees in blue velvet for. Just a thought....but a pain I know. Love your direction here, just beautiful!

  2. Love that color yellow! Nice! There is a yellow paisly settee I have had my eye on at Horchow, but it's pretty pricey. Good luck...

  3. What a bummer! That yellow settee was really cute. I'm SURE you'll find something even better to replace it (or knowing you, you'll be able to track down the real thing somehow) :)

  4. Really love what you have so far. That desk is beautiful and I LOVE the rug. Calypso is my favorite !! I love the west elm swivel leather desk chair in white...I got one like it for my new office.

  11. I see you've decided on a combination of yellow and grey, which is one of my favourites. I so love the desk and the settee is so lovely, hope you'll find something similar. Enjoy your weekend, Kate! :)

  12. Love the items you have chosen so far, especially the rug. A shame about the settee, but as suggested, perhaps recovering another settee in your desired fabric/color might be an option.

  13. Love your picks. That geometric rug and yellow settee are pretty. I am sure you will find prettier settee online. Just keep looking.

    Anyway, looking forward to see your new home and your office decor. I feel so excited for you.
