    My Home: The New Red Vases for My Living Room

    new red vases in my living room

    When I went to Zone last Friday for buying the small red gourde vase that I, initially, planned for my entryway, I realized that the vase would be too large for the IKEA shoe cabinet. But I didn’t waste my time since I noticed that it was the same orange red than my Eames rocking chair. Since the vases were at 50% off, I bought it and its tall companion. I was right! The color matches perfectly. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.

    The next step is to get rid of the bulky media center computer, the stereo style component under the red vases. I asked my husband to explore ways that we could do this. He is in charge of everything that is technological at home. Stay tuned for our progress.
