Happy Sunday evening to all of you!
At home I have been making a lot of changes to my living space over the last couple of months and I have reached a point now where everything is settled in just the way I like it. What sparked the changes was the beautiful commissioned art piece I purchased at the end of the summer and then received in my home in October.
Because of all of these changes I wanted to make sure I shared some updated photos as well as walked through the new pieces to the space. I also have added an amazing faux fireplace, a yellow accent chair, and a new rug: just to name a few others! The style and vibe of the space has turned very boho and electic and I love how the space feels. It has given me plenty of ways to incorporate a heavy use of color just like I like to.
If you have any questions on any of the pieces in the space please don’t hesitate to ask! Some were purchased quite recently but others not. I will always try my best to find you something similar if something isn’t being sold anymore. Ok…here we go!
Here is a wider look at the overall space. I am standing over by my dining room table to capture as much of the new layout as I can. I changed the layout of the room completely during the Christmas season and I have loved having the couch this way. It makes the room feel WAY bigger. and allows the window to be highlighted and lets in so much more light when it’s not partially blocked by the couch. One thing that is best seen in this photo is the amazing rug I found on Amazon. It goes PERFECTLY with this space and I got it for a steal of a deal. The tassels at the edges add a great element of texture and I like that the rug itself has a higher pile so its nice and warm on your feet at this time of the year!
This stunning yellow arm chair was a gift to myself for my birthday. I got it on Houzz.com (similar to Wayfair) for an amazing price. I love the statement it makes and the classic oversized shape. The infamous commissioned art by the incredible Bailey Builds team from Duluth steals the show everytime – they got the colors of my living spot on and I couldn’t be happier with it. It really stands out against the wall and I highlighted it even more by draping a strand of pom-pom garland below it from the Opalhouse collection at Target. The wooden wall decor and sparkle wording above the chair are both from Hobby Lobby. As for the pillows and blanket – the faux fur pink blanket is from Home Goods, the pink knot pillow is from Hobby Lobby, and both the blue ruffled and metallic beaded pillows are from Gordmans. My metal magazine storage basket is from the Hearth and Hand Magnolia collection from Chip and Joanna at Target!
I scored this incredible rattan accent table from Picks the other week and it was the perfect addition to this room. It doesn’t look too busy in front of the window and it’s the perfect place to create different vignettes for each season – now with Valentines and spring hopefully around the corner I have fun florals, tassel garland, and a sweet new pink and gold lamp from Hobby Lobby. The faux fiddle leaf fig tree in the textured basket was a great score from TJMaxx – SUCH a good price compared to other ones I’ve seen. My gold and turquoise yarn and metal wall hanging is from Target – it’s probably more than a year old but it might still be around!
My white faux fireplace with faux marble accents is another of my favorite new additions to the space. This piece is also from Target (only sold online) and it’s truly stunning. I have loved having the feeling of a fireplace at home – especially during these colder months. It’s certainly an investment but it’s the prettiest TV stand ever in my opinion! Atop the TV are all pieces from Target – two different gold and white vases, some faux floral stems, and then two fun gold picture frames. My vintage paned window is from Picks a couple of years ago. I love showcasing and updating photos of my beautiful friends and family there – right under my “thankful” word wall from Hobby Lobby. The fun turquoise and gold hooks on the wall for purses and jackets are also from Hobby Lobby. Another new addition is the white decorative bell hanging from my doorknob – I got it at Kittsona and love the delicate touch it adds to the entryway.
The gallery wall behind the couch also got a slight face lift – the large gold piece and the small framed canvas are both from Gordmans, the fun pink textured tapestry hanging is from Hobby Lobby, and then white feathered hanging (called a juju hat!) is from Surface Abroad. My white sectional couch was my first adult purchase after graduating from college – it’s from Furniture Row but its unfortunately no longer available. My yellow lumbar velvet pillow is from Target (Opalhouse collection) and the pink throw and two metallic style/blush pillows are all from Home Goods.
My stunning dining room table is from Picks and my chairs were a steal from a garage sale. The wooden letter board was a Christmas gift from my brother and is still available at Target! The yellow vase, floral steams, pompom garland, and the glass jar are all Target items from various times. The gold mirror is the Dollar Tree and the beautiful colored yarn hanging is from Kittsona (a few years old).
As for the dubbed “awkward corner” at the landing of the stairs I finally found the perfect set-up and now I love how it looks over there. I wrapped another string of pompom garland from Target around the banister, used the great vintage dark wooden table that was by the couch before and placed it on the landing. The silver and gold basket I spray painted myself (was a plain rattan basket from Target) and I placed a mini faux fiddle leaf inside of it – also from TJMaxx, just like the bigger one by the front door. What REALLY stole the show over there though and made everything work perfectly is the amazing sunburst rattan mirror. I found that at Hobby Lobby a few weekends ago and I am so happy I came across it. I put a more up close picture below just so you can see it in all of it’s glory 😀
It has been so fun to evolve this space into something that matches my want for color. The changes have certainly been done slowly over these last 4 months so that’s a good reminder for all of you who are stressed about decorating your own spaces – take your time finding pieces that really meet what you’re looking for. No need to rush 🙂 when you find something after a period of waiting and it’s exactly what you want you’ll be glad you didn’t rush into buying something just because you felt you were on a timeline.
I love sharing my spaces with all of you and I hope you enjoy seeing photos and details! Thanks for much for reading. Have an amazing week!
