Helllllo there and good morning sunshine! I’m sorry it’s been a little quiet around here the past few days. I honestly feel like every day I’m running a race and there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. It’s crazy town over here. But the house is really coming along now and it’s slowly but surely starting to feel like home. I’m still trying to figure out how to make things work with the furniture we already have, which is a little tricky because it’s obviously a brand new space and the “needs” of this house are different from the old house. But I did pick up a couple of new chairs from Target yesterday and I’m loving how they look in our living room!
These chairs are perfect for this room! I really wanted to do two matching arm chairs here and these are just the right size. And the cushion is super deep and wide, so it’s actually really comfortable too. I love them! I paired them with this woven storage ottoman, which is also from the Studio McGee collection.
I just added this French inspired mirror to this corner and it really made all the difference here!! It’s such a pretty piece and it gives this corner the perfect amount of texture and warmth. The little bench/ottoman here is another Target find but I can’t seem to find it online for some reason!
This corner here with the egg chair has been a work in progress. It already looks different now, but I snapped this photo a few days ago when it was looking extra cozy. The nice thing about this living room is that it’s large enough for fun little cozy spots like this!
This little seating area next to the foyer had been a real humdinger for me lately. I can’t figure out if it should be a dining room or sitting room! I keep going back and forth on it, but my original goal was to make it a cozy reading spot that we could use if the kids are watching a movie. Once we get the basement finished (it’s finally back on track!) we’ll have more space for them to play downstairs, so maybe I’ll change it to a dining room then. Who knows! Also how stunning is that light beaded fixture??! It’s from Arhaus and it’s basically like a work of art. I looooooove it.
Well there’s just a quick look at a few of my favorite cozy spots in our home! I am SO excited for the basement to be finished because that whole area is going to be extra cozy and fun. Hopefully it’s done by mid to late October! We’re also in the process of putting up bamboo blinds in the whole house, so that is going to really add a lot of warmth and coziness too. I’ll share an update and photos on that soon!
Hope you have a super day! xoxo
