Re-Decorating: Seating

Only recently have I started being caring about what my room looks like and making it into my own unique space. I bought this bed set about a year ago from Delia*s, and I still love it. I also bought a very cute bulletin board to match (I'll take pictures of all this for you later, after I clean up my room. It's a bit messy right now). But, there is this corner that just has a plastic blue bin that holds all my wii games and miscellaneous things that don't have a home in my room, and it does not look cute at all. I'm looking for some sort of chair or couch to put there.

In an ideal Gracey World, I would have a bathtub couch like the one in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I've spent a lot of time trying to find one, and I did indeed find my dream couch on Etsy.

Cute, right? It's even a Tiffany Blue-ish color on the outside. I love it. But what I don't love, is the price tag. $1,700! And as far as comfort goes, I'm not too sure if this would be a winner. But, if I had large sums of money, I would buy this in a heartbeat. No fear though, one day I will have my bathtub couch!

Etsy teases me a lot. I found another couch that I really like, but again, the price is just too high for my little $8 and hour budget.

It's black and white, which matches my bedroom. It's antique, which also matches my bedroom (well, my bedroom isn't antique, just antique accents). But if I were to spend $2,000 on something now, it would probably be a new laptop or go on a major shopping spree. Or, you know, be responsible and pay back my credit card bill.

Now, I did find something I liked a little on the cheaper side (which I still can't afford right now, but it's a heck of a lot better than the $2,000 one) at Urban Outfitters.

It's very Marie Antoinette! I guess that's why they call it an Antionette Fainting Sofa. I really like the color, and I think it matches the blue accents in my room. They also have a light pink version which I also like, and might be good to add a pop of pink here and there.

Anyway, I'm not planning on buying anything big until I get my credit card completely paid off, so I might just stick to little things for now. I'll post pictures for ya'll so you can get the full effect of Gracey World :)

Any suggestions? Would you pay that much for the antique sofa or the bathtub couch? Are you re-decorating too? Let me know what you think!
