i’ve been wanting to share some snapshots of our new living room ever since the sofa we picked out at MASTER MEUBEL was delivered. but it so happened that the delivery guys arrived the night before juliet’s birth, and well, things got a little crazy after that. but now that everything is settling down a bit, and we’ve started to create new routines as a family, i’m so happy to finally share how our living room looks right now.

as you may remember, i teamed up with my favorite design store to finally create the perfect living room fit for an adult life and a little family. everything revolved around the sofa. you can see the moodboard i created HERE and the process of choosing the right one for us with an interior architect of master meubel HERE. i can’t even put into words how happy i was when the sofa made its way to switzerland. i had to leave for the hospital later that night, and i was so disappointed to leave it behind. all the time i spent in the hospital, i thought about curling up on that sofa with my tiny newborn girl in my arms.

when that finally happened a few days later, it was everything i had imagined. the MOROSO GENTRY is so spacious, there was more than enough room for the three of us to hang and lounge for days on end. i spent many nightly hours on that couch, rocking little juliet to sleep while zapping through netflix (and racing through entire seasons of white collar, bloodline and unbreakable kimmy schmidt). already, this sofa is so much more than the gorgeous design object i fell head over heels for. it’s the beating heart of our home.

perhaps one day i’ll regret choosing this light grey color (premonitions of a four year old juliet’s sticky hands and messy snacks), but right now i couldn’t love it more. it ensures the sofa doesn’t look too heavy, like it might have in the cable knit fabric. in the end we just added some pillows in that fabric because we loved it so much, but we’re happy we went for a slightly safer and more timeless fabric for the sofa. we also chose two black ABOUT A CHAIR models from hay, to add more seating for when we entertain guests. one of them is in JULIET’S NURSERY for now, and both of them are our preferred spots to feed her, as the arm rest is just the right height to support us holding her.

i was pleasantly surprised to see what a great match the moroso couch is with our FOSCARINI TWIGGY lamp, which we also bought at master meubel years ago, when first moving in with each other. it really feels like we’re building our ideal interior, carefully and slowly putting together the different pieces of the puzzle. i like the idea of working towards the perfect home gradually, adding different layers as the years go by and you evolve as a couple and as a family.

    Very nice, ik ben fan! Geniet nog van jullie bar-tafeltje zolang het nog kan. Hier is dat helaas geen optie meer met een nieuwsgierige baby van 9 maanden die zich optrekt aan alles wat los en vast zit :-)

      haha, ja dat zien we inderdaad al aankomen – maar het leuke aan dat hay tafeltje is dat je de tray ook los (ergens hoger) kan neerzetten, en de poten kan opbergen voor een tijdje :)
