Desired House Updates

Hello loves!  Happy Hump Day!  I couldn't help but do another design board today.... but this time, I'm sharing a few desired updates for my OWN place!  Sam and I have decided to spend the first 6 months-year of our marriage in my townhome.  He currently lives in an apartment, and we're hoping shortly after we wed we find the perfect house here in Houston.  My house has been a work in progress since moving in 2 years ago... and I'm not quite satisfied with it (are us designers ever satisfied with our own homes?!). so I felt now was the perfect time to give it a face lift! Here's a few shots of my living room as of now:

I recently updated my wingback with a Mimosa Lane pillow cover...

The main change I want to make is my sofa.  I actually bought my current sofa at an estate sale, and would love to change it out with a prettier one!  It's so "blah".  The upholstery up close is very pretty, but it just isn't the right color for the space:

And now on to my master bed...

I recently updated my throw pillows to include this Jonathan Adler needlepoint:

Hilarious!  I had to have it.  Anyway... as you can see.... pink, pink, pink everywhere:

Not exactly "man friendly."  Ever since spotting Crane & Canopy's scalloped coral bedding, I've been smitten.  Plus, I feel like coral is a happy solution for my soon-to-be hubby when it comes to my pink obsession, and it goes well with turquoise + leopard.  I'd also like to upgrade the bedside lamps to a classic Circa Lighting design.

The Sally King Benedict painting above is my absolute FAVORITE.  Unfortunately, it's sold.    Nevertheless, I'd love to add one piece of fine art to the bedroom... and I'll keep looking til I find one as good as Sally's.  Or, til I can afford to commission her.  ;)  My board is still quite feminine, but it's a step in the right direction........ right??
