Our Family/Living Room

May 20th, 2014

living room 3

I am kind of on a roll with this whole home tour thing! I captured our family/living room last week and wanted to share the pics with my lovely readers. It finally feels pretty “finished” and I say “finished” because I change my mind every two and a half seconds and switch things around.

We don’t have two living spaces like most modern homes, but our home was built in 1948 so it has the charm to make up for it! To me, leaving the room uncluttered was a must to accent the beautiful features like the built in bookcase and gorgeous bay windows. I love playing around with different accent pieces but for the most part, the decor continues to be simple and modern with a bit of rustic thrown in (as described here). I have to say, Gaston sure does make the room look good!

I will continue to show you more rooms, but we are starting our addition soon, so it may be a few months. Stay tuned! (You can shop some of the pieces from our room below!)

Entry Way

entry way 4

The home tour continues! I wanted to feature our cute little entry way on the blog because I adore everything about it. I took my time styling it and making sure I loved each element, but it finally feels complete to me. The only addition I would consider would be a coat rack or umbrella holder, but that is still undecided. The sweet silhouettes were made on Etsy and are actual silhouettes of our fur baby, Gaston. My mom always had our silhouettes on the wall, so I was inspired to create a new take on the idea with puppy silhouettes. Plus, let’s be honest, they’re cuter than normal silhouettes anyways! I also chose one of our favorite wedding photos and some other cute objects to style the table.

Dining Room Decor

February 6th, 2014

dining room

As promised, I will continue to take you along in the decorating of our new home and the soon-to-come addition. First up: our dining room. Our dining room decor is what I like to describe as simple, modern and rustic. The hubby and I have the similar “less is more” taste when it comes to home decor. This truly shows in our dining room decor more than any other room in our home. We snagged this dining table and chairs when we were living in San Francisco last year and I am still in absolute love with it. To play off the rustic design of the set, I found this fabulous cow hide rug and faux skins to drape over the chairs. One of my favorite accessories, this white deer head, is displayed all by its lonesome to give it the focus it deserves. The bar cart (so fun to have) sits nicely in the corner and the new modern lights from West Elm complete the ambiance. With lights like these the light bulbs are on full display, so I was sure to get pretty edison bulbs.

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts! You can shop some of the pieces below. I can’t wait to continue to show off our home decor with my lovely readers…stay tuned.

Settling In

January 29th, 2014

I just realized I never shared a picture of our new home with all my lovely readers! We moved into this adorable home back in November and have been settling in ever since. It was built in 1948 and has the kind of charm that no new homes have – think original hardwood floors and cute built-ins. Although it has been updated quite a bit, it still needs some work. The house currently has three bedrooms and one bathroom, but we purchased the house with the notion of adding a second bathroom/master closet as soon as possible. Being super duper proactive, we just met with an architect to set these plans into motion! We are so excited to start the project and finally be able to pee at the same time if needed (only those of you with one bathroom will understand). I hope to take you along the journey and will share other photos of our home as well (you can see a few of the backyard here and here).

Cowhide Rug

November 14th, 2013

I recently scored a beautiful cowhide rug for under our dining table. I love the look paired with our industrial style table and chairs (follow me on instagram for pics!). When I started searching for the perfect rug, I (like always) got inspiration from Pinterest and was blown away with fab ideas. I am so in love with the rug that I want one in every room! I know, that would make me crazy cowhide rug lady, so I will restrain myself to just the one. Check out the inspiration below… you can’t blame me for the obsession!
