Before I give more house tours, I thought I'd pop in with an update on the living room. As I mentioned, I really wanted to purchase the Pottery Barn Leona coffee table...so I did. And they ship fast, man!
Meet Leona. She's sleek. She's clean. She's brassy. She's very adult.
In a classy kind of way.
Here's what we had before. Ugh.
Let's call him Leonard. Leona's chunky, grumpy brother.
An improvement, right?
I just worked with what I had in terms of putting stuff on this little coffee table. I am sure it'll evolve over time, but for now, a rustic tray (Crate and Barrel clearance), some coasters, a succulent, and a book will have to do. One thing I do love about this table is that it allows us to see more of the rug. It's too pretty to hide.
Confession: I'm not really enjoying decorating our house as much as I thought I would. It's actually kind of stressful. Maybe I need to start pulling it all together with art and curtains and 500+ photos of us to make it feel more cozy, but right now, if I had the money to hire someone to come and finish it, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Or if any of you with any design sense whatsoever wants to offer your services to me, I do know how to make cookies.
Oh and one last thing! My mom bought me this ridiculously soft throw from West Elm (on sale for $10 right now!) for Christmas and while it reads brown in these photos, it's actually a really pretty plum gray color. So I added that to the living room, too. We're getting there folks.
But I want your ideas. What makes a home a home? What can I add to make our space feel a little more us and a little more welcoming? I still feel like I'm definitely living in someone else's house (though I do enjoy it very much!).
