Our living/dining room feels like an extremely SLOW work in progress! I have been so picky about the pieces I want in this room that it's just been sitting empty for over 6 months. I have been having a really hard time finding the perfect pieces and the ones I have picked out I can never seem to find (they're all in America of course). We also haven't had much extra money for "non essentials" and my husband and I have different ideas of "essentials" so there's that. I don't want to settle for a bunch of items from IKEA but I think I need to lower my expectations a little knowing I can always switch things out for investment pieces at a later date. I just want our home to be so many different things and I pull myself in different design directions and styles. Are you guys this indecisive in your homes or I'm just crazy?! .. I blame Pinterest.

I am still really happy with our Replica Hans Wegner chairs, we found these at an amazing price, you can buy similar here. My goals for the next update of this room is a new chair for the living room, a large mirror or art piece, a rug in the living area and under the dining room and a great coffee table. Wish me luck and if any of you know some great flea markets, interior shops, op shops, vintage stores on the Gold Coast (or surrounding area) please comment below!
