Living Room Mood Board

With a new living room and kitchen space our old furtuine along with some finshing are starting to look old, tired and dated. Because we're a sticklers for budgets we didn't run out immediately and buy all new things. Instead we've been talking about it for at least a year. If you ask my sister it's probably been longer, but either way we're getting closer to pulling the trigger on a new couch!

But it doesn't end there! Nope. With a new couch I'll finally be able to update our area rug, throw pillows, ottoman and curtains! Yup, I want to pick a couch first and coordinate decor, etc. around it. It is the largest and most expensive piece.

My style is all over the place, but one thing I do know is I crave clean lines and rustic charm. Either way here's what I'm dreaming up today.


Living Room Inspo

I'll share all the details about our couch once it in the house, but know I've been searching high and low for the ideal couch at the right price.

What are we looking for? Enough seating for family and friends without the couch looking like it dominates the room. Definitely a gray sectional. Regarding material I just want something that is super easy to clean (hello toddler and dog). I'm not willing to sacrifice quality, but don't want to pay $5,000. I've looked at Crate and Barrel, West Elm, Macy's, Bassett and Interior Define.

Until then, fest your eyes on some living room inpso!

Natural Wood Flooring

Remember a long time ago when I announced we were remodeling the living room and kitchen? Yeah, well we finished the project nearly a year ago. Since then I've been slowly working on finishing touches. You know things like couch hunting (still hunting), painting, and simply redecorating. We used all our old stuff and it just doesn't feel right in the new space... so I'm working on making some affordable updates. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Until then let's talk about flooring. We landed on natural hand scrapped hickory flooring throughout the living room, kitchen and hallway. To make them feel a bit more modern we went with 7" wide planks. After searching for months we purchased our flooring from Hardwood Bargains. They hands down have the best price for hickory without skimping on the quality Our installer even said the flooring quality was unbelievable. Oh and they were SUPER easy to work with. We would use them again! (No, I was not paid to say that) And a year later I'm still in love with the flooring.

Here's a shot of the kitchen side of the remodel. (our exact flooring)


While I search for the perfect rug, couch, new barstools, etc., I'll leave you with more flooring inspiration...

Last Minute Gift Ideas for your Galentine

1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9


Hello Lovelies!

Valentine's Day is only a week away. We don't have any big plans over here, but I'm sure we'll celebrate with a delicious breakfast/dinner and movie at home. There's still time to pick up a little something for your Galentine too! 

I love the idea of celebrating girlfriends. Life is just better with girlfriends. Did you know I was in a sorority? Yeah, I know you would have never guessed it. But like many I made life long friends. Friends I know I can call after months and it's like we never skipped a beat!

So cheers to your favorite Galentine!
