Since moving into our new place in June we haven't had much time to really make it what we want. I would say that the only two rooms that get any attention is the downstairs Guest Room and the Living Room.. and neither one is 100 percent but I'm okay with that. As long as our guests feel comfortable and we have a place to hang we are happy. Lets be honest though most the time we are in the Kitchen!
When people ask what our decorating style is I really don't know how to answer that. I want our home to feel like the first home my parents ever bought. Lots of light, huge windows, tons of space, not a lot of furniture to fill up the space but just enough, high ceilings, records playing, minimal and airy. The house was always filled with family and friends and there was just so much love and laughter. I like the idea of not filling up the space just to have stuff. That makes me feel claustrophobic. I want everything we own to have a purpose or meaning behind it.
I've had so many requests to see inside our place so I decided to start with the living room. It's not perfect but so far it has many of the things that remind me of my childhood home.
CHAIRS - I bought these from Andrew Modern they are close friends and they are originals but here is a link (SIMILAR TO)
RECLINER - Never in my life would I think to get a recliner in my house but this one doesn't look big and bulky like an old man chair. It's def a favorite choice to sit on when people come over.
COFFEE TABLE - I got this at a local shop called Native Citizen but I have no idea what it's called so if you know please let me know.
MAGAZINE RACK - My Aunt Gayle gave me this a few years back and I absolutely love it! It's the perfect way to display my coffee table books.
LARGE PEACOCK CHAIR - Another treasure available @TheBohoStow or click on link for more options.
VINTAGE PLANTER- Follow my friend Cheryl on IG @TheBohoStow to buy this one or click on link for other options
BOOK SHELF and SURFBOARD - We found these at Reeves Antiques. This place is full of awesome unique pieces and people always want to know about them.
FACETED TERRARIUMS - We have not planted anything in it yet we have so many things to pot first!
GUITAR - Gift from my Grandma Nolene and Aunt Vicki When I was in 8th Grade. I wanted to be like Sheryl Crow and Courtney Love...
PLANTS - Buchanan's, Home Depot, Cactus King (cash only), Ikea, my mom will bring a pinch from her plants over and grow a new one for me, Friends and Family have gifted me some awesome pencil plants. Seriously giving someone or growing someone a plant is the best gift ever!
