New Cabinet in the Reading Room!

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend. We endured the craziest wind (again) all weekend, and today we were welcomed with temps in the 30’s and light snow. It’s been a fabulous few days of weather to kick off the month of May. But I’m actually pretty proud of myself because I’ve gotten WAY better about not letting the weather completely ruin my mood. It’s taken years of practice and I still haven’t quite perfected it, but I’m so much better than I used to be, which is a positive. Anyway, our little front room/reading room/old dining room just got a snazzy upgrade and I can’t wait to show you what it looks like!

Okkkk, how dang gorgeous is this cabinet. She has quite the commanding presence, right?! I am so smitten and I can’t get over how good she looks with the emerald green swivel chairs I found on Facebook marketplace.

It’s crazy how much my style has evolved over the last six years of blogging. Not too long ago I was afraid to use any color and I usually shied away away from furniture that wasn’t painted white. There’s was nothing wrong with that at the time, but it’s been fun to give myself permission to try new thing and explore other styles. Turns out I do love color! And contrast! And warm wood tones! It’s all happening in this room and I just love it. In fact, I’m sitting in one of these cozy green swivel chairs right now as I type this post. It’s quickly become my favorite space in the house.

Thanks so much for hanging out with me on the blog today. I always appreciate it so much when you spend part of your day here with me.

    Wow that room is gorgeous. Been following you for a few years. I have to say I miss the days when you would re-do things or show us how to decorate in a budget. The last year or so I just can’t believe the expensive things you get to purchase.$3500 for a cabinet. I wish! Like I said beautiful but not for the ordinary person’s pocket book.

      Hi Michelle, I appreciate your feedback. But I have to say, the vast majority of the decor, furniture, and clothing I share here on the blog and on Instragram is from either Target, Walmart, or Amazon. Sharing a higher end piece, like this cabinet from Arhaus, is much more rare.
