Room Proud

Hi all,

I thought it would be sort of fun to do a variety of posts, each featuring a room I am proud of. I am a firm believer that a room should be both warm and welcoming, but most importantly, a reflection of you. My first "room proud" features my living room space. I love this space because it is warm and welcoming but also soft and relaxing.


I love to showcase a pretty window that invites natural light into a room. In my living room I did this by placing two chairs, from my Grandmother, in front of the window and sewing striped pillows to add some color. 


I feel every space should include that one signature piece that you fell in love with. For me, it was this pretty chair. I fell in love with the print and tranquil colors. I added a couple of fun pillows to complete the look.


I leaned a vintage cream colored mirror on my mantle and complimented it with simple candles and large outdoor candles as vases.


For the longest time I wasn't sure what to do with this odd window located at the bottom of my stairs. I am a big fan of different sized and colored letters, whether bought at a craft shop or found at a thrift store. I think letters can give a unique touch to any space.


Dried flowers are a different way to surround yourself with flowers, especially meaningful ones.


I love a great find! One woman's trash is another woman's treasure. I had been looking and looking for a new coffee table but I couldn't find a style, or cost, that I liked. I found this lonely coffee table sitting on a curb with a "free" sign attached. I cleaned it up and gave it a new home.


I enjoy keeping an eye out for fun glassware. I set these different jars and vases on my coffee table. Each has a different style and offers a color that works well in my space. I also like to have them handy in case I need a place to set out fresh cut flowers.


I feel pillows are one of the easiest and least expensive ways give a space some pizazz. I love mismatched, color pillows that can instantly transform a simple couch into beautiful seating.


I am particularly proud of this little project I took on. This could of easily turned into an expensive project, however I chose to keep it simple. I used frames, fabrics, and other miscellaneous items around my house to turn my vision into a reality.


Lighting can make all the difference in a space.  I have three lamps in my living room and decided to choose one, colorful lamp for the space. I think bright lamp is a great addiiton to any room.

xxoo,

Sarah
