Before/After: Patio Reveal

Before/After: Patio Reveal

Eeeee the patio is finally complete! It only took the whole summer bahahaha. What we thought would be a simple “get furniture, bring it outside, voila!” sitch turned into a big outdoor project that involved a lot more work than previously anticipated. We’re just so happy with the finished space though, and I’m excited to share it with you!

Our Home Office/Guest Bedroom

Our Home Office/Guest Bedroom

When we moved from our tiny 1 bedroom apartment to our 2 bedroom home last year, I was so excited about the prospect of having more space for Eddie and I to make use of. I wanted a guest bedroom, but at the same time I needed room for us to get work done on our desktops. The solution? A joint guest room/home office! When you’re living in a small space, rooms have to work overtime. Even though the room is quite small, I knew we could make it work - just meant we had to get creative with our use of space!

Spring Refresh At Home

Spring Refresh At Home

With each change of seasons I love to switch up the decor around the house. This spring’s wildflower super bloom and all the beautiful colors exploding from the earth have really made my heart sing - it’s reinforced my urge to incorporate more color into our neutral living room! I’ve been wanting to invest in a vintage Moroccan rug for years now, and I knew a colorful one would bring the room to life in a fabulous way. I actually started my rug search a few months ago but nothing had been the right size, colors, pattern, or price.

Before & After: How to Transform Your TV Wall

The latest nook we’ve attacked in the hobbit house is our TV wall! It’s been pretty sad looking since we moved in, and was in desperate need of some good vibes styling. We’d been using our old coffee table as the TV stand and a crate to hold my records, but I was ready for something a bit sleeker. I wanted to share with you some tips on beautifying your own TV wall if you’ve been feeling blah about your current sitch, like I was!

So I got to designing, and the above shot is the finished nook :) I wanted to take you through my process of designing this lil space, as well as give you some tips for creating a fun drink zone of your own!

Living Room Reveal With Comfort Works

I'm so excited to be showing you our new offish redesigned living room! This was an especially fun lil project for me because I didn't buy any new furniture to create this new look - that's right, this is actually the same Ikea sectional we've had for years. The secret is these fab replacement slipcovers and wooden sofa legs from Comfort Works. Yaaaaaaas! If you need a refresher on what the space used to look like, take a peek below.

Friendsgiving 2017

Friendsgiving 2017

Eddie and I hosted our 2nd annual Friendsgiving celebration over the weekend, this time packing 10 people into our lil living room! We had so much fun, and it never felt too crowded - just super cozy, lots of floor pillow loungin'. This year I was super low key with the planning of the table setting. Whereas last year I went out and bought lots of new things (glasses, plates, table runner, punch bowl, candlesticks, etc), this year I didn't buy a single thing other than flowers. I've been trying to declutter our space, and am starting to be really picky about what I bring into our apartment - with a 700 square foot space, there's really no room for random or surplus items that aren't going to be used regularly. I also just recently donated an entire car's worth of things we weren't using anymore to our local Goodwill, and I still have more closets to clear out - eek! So this year I reused a lot of things from last Friendsgiving, but changed a few key elements so that the table still felt new and fresh.
