UncategorizedOur Sitting Room September 25, 2013So, I’m not really sure what to call this room that is right inside our front door. Sitting room? Keeping room? I’ve been calling it the front room and that has to be the most uncreative and dumb name ever. So, it needs to change. I’m open to suggestions 🙂 I realized that I haven’t posted about this room yet even though it’s already in our home tour, so here goes! On one side, you have my desk, and on the other you have the fireplace and this little sitting area I’ve put together. For some odd reason, previous home owners closed up the fireplace. Thankfully, it’s in our plan to open that baby up! So, I want a cozy little sitting area to chat by a fire at night. I love having a mantle to style! Especially since it’s open to the living room. I really love these beams that now case the opening. There used to be a wall here…I’m working on some before and after posts to share 🙂 And plants…I am such a firm believer that every room needs plants. That’s the little details that we never got to in our last house before selling and I am so excited to get to them now! This is currently my favorite room in the house. I am loving the mix of bohemian and a little country… …mixed with my fave, mid-century modern. I really think this room has the best mix of my style so far. My favorite part has got to be that rug. Read about how I “stole” that rug here. Now, that’s a crazy story 🙂 *** In other news , I am so honored and blessed to officially be a new contributor over at The Handmade Home starting today. Y’all, when I met Ashley at Haven, I was completely blown away by how down to earth and wonderful she is! Then, when I got an e-mail from her a week later with this proposition, I almost died. I did cry a little bit. Okay, a lot. I saw the e-mail at just the right time when I was a bit down. My husband thought I was having a stroke and it took me like ten minutes to even relay what the e-mail said. Anyway, I’m so happy to be posting over there! She is unbelievable and I’ve read her blog for like three years, so it’s a bit surreal for me. Today, I’m sharing a current home tour, a little bit about me, and a couple of my favorite parties I’ve done. Go check it out and say hello!
