Decorating our New Living Room Built-In Shelves

Decorating our New Living Room Built-In Shelves

Over the last few months, we’ve been slowly tweaking our living room space. I’ve shared one half of the room in this blog post, but now I’m showing you the other side! The room is in the very front of our house, with a big window and connected to our guest room (our former bedroom) via wooden pocket doors. Nothing was ‘wrong’ with the space, but I just had been itching for a change. The biggest decor updates we made were swapping out a bulky couch and ottoman set for a pretty curved sofa and changing the lighting. We previously had a brass sputnik chandelier […]

How-To: Custom Built-In Shelves in Our Living Room

How-To: Custom Built-In Shelves in Our Living Room

If you know me or have been following along for awhile, you know I’m always tweaking and updating our space! I  believe our home isn’t stagnant but always evolving based on our needs and preferences. Our living room is immediately right when you walk into our house. You see the fireplace right away, plus a large, beautiful window facing our front yard.  On either side of the fireplace was sort of wasted space. The left side has a large window and the right side had a large indented area that was just…empty. It was perfect for our Christmas tree, but of course, that’s not a […]

living room corner refresh

living room corner refresh

Hi! I’m so excited to share with you our refreshed living room! Well, a corner of it anyway. This room has never felt quite right to me and I’ve been on a mission to tweak this space so it functions a little better (hi, strategic storage and more floor space to play!) and looks a little better. We had a different sofa in here for about two years and while there was nothing wrong with it, the gray color made the room feel darker than it already is (with lots of wood trim!) and the ottoman took up too much space, so we could only […]

I have a thing for tulip pedestal tables

I have a thing for tulip pedestal tables

When you like something…you like something! Apparently, I  have a thing for tulip / pedestal tables whether it’s a dining table or accent table! I  like to say its a reoccurring theme in our house. Tulip (or pedestal) tables are “a wide, round, flat base that quickly tapered into a ‘stem’ of sorts; topped with thin, round or oval surfaces wider than their base” according to House Beautiful. I  love that they don’t take up as much space – literally and visually and add a modern flair to our (quite old) home. Here’s the ones we have and love! 2 Piece Concrete Pedestal Accent Table […]

greenhouse decor updates

greenhouse decor updates

Hi there! We recently made some big decor changes to our backyard greenhouse and I wanted to share! A little backstory on the greenhouse for you first! We bought our house in October 2018 and this space used to be a falling-apart, termite-filled garage. In November, E had the idea to tear it down and turn it into a backyard greenhouse. Our greenhouse is made out of recycled windows and doors we found in our neighborhood! The project wrapped up in April/May 2019 and for about a year, we used it solely as a functional greenhouse space. Plants only, really. Last spring, we decided to […]

This post is sponsored by Wayfair, a brand I’ve partnered with and shopped from for years. Thanks for reading!  I’ve shared peeks at our bedroom a couple times, mostly on Instagram and most recently in this long blog post talking about our upstairs renovation. When we started our upstairs renovation in November 2019, the plan was for this area to be our guest bedroom, but we quickly loved it so much that we made it our room instead. Here’s what it this space looked like as a guest bedroom! This upstairs is very multifunctional; we have a dormer window office nook, a small living area, […]
