lust, homeowner style

like any new homeowner, i have become obsessed with browsing around for furniture and stuff for the new house. in addition to the massive cash we are about to throw down for the appliances we must have to make the house work, i am also filled with lust for the following items, some of which we actually need, and some of which are just yummy.

stuff i want: charleston sofa
needed: the charleston sofa from pottery barn in cranberry twill or cardinal brushed canvas. we have a sleeper love seat that matches this sofa, and it's AWESOME. it's comfy and pretty and has machine washable slipcovers, which i highly recommend for anyone with pets. plus, our cutrrent sofa is a piece of crat that's falling apart and with which the cats have had their way one too many times...

stuff i want: media stand
needed: the kingston media stand from crate and barrel. i have been looking at media stands everywhere. the hippie's gonna buy a big screen TV, which is fine and all, but this require some more furniture. the little stand we have now will not work with a ginormous TV, nor will it hold all the crap that goes with it. so. this is the best one i can find that fits the bill and will (mostly) work. plus, it's pretty. :)

stuff i want: chrysanthemum sheets

stuff i want: christmas percale
wanted: SHEETS! i LOVE sheets. and i think these chrysanthemum sheets from garnet hill are just so pretty. i want them in blue AND green to go with my blue and green bedroom. i don't NEED them at all--i just WANT them. and i am embarassed to say that i also want these christmas sheets. it's actually hard for me to believe that i want christmas sheets as i generally keep the holiday stuff confined to the main living spaces of the house. but man, these are just too cute, and i think they would look awesome with our bright blue walls. *sigh*

i was planning to put a picture here of the pivot dining room table from crate and barrel, which we have also wanted for a long time. but now that i look at it again, i realize i am not 100% sold on it anymore. i still think it's cool as hell, but it may also be too small. hmmmm. guess i have more shopping to do!

i think there's a consensus (sp?) that you must own beautiful garnet hill sheets :)

Have you thought about putting together a gift registry so that folks who are so inclined can give you housewarming presents that will work well in your new place? :) I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like a little direction in that department...

And before you tell me that you are hesitant to register because some of the things you want are a little pricey, allow me to remind you that folks can simply choose to give you gift cards to your favorite stores once they know what those stores are. I'm just sayin'.
