A Little Peek at Our Guest Room, New Art and a New Print


When we switched the bedrooms this winter so that the girls could each have their own room the remaining items ended up in here in our guest room. I didn't love the white headboard against the white wall so I thought I would possibly try to recover the headboard or maybe paint the walls. I decided to paint the walls because I thought it would be a little more fun that way, and if I hated it, it's pretty easy to just paint them again a lighter colors. I am still working on this room (for instance I am switching out the nightstands for round wood ones that I am really excited about and switching up the bedding a little bit) but I thought I would show a little peek of how it's looking. 

The first thing I did was paint the walls Nightfall in an eggshell finish from Benjamin Moore. Then I added some black buffalo check drapery panels from Country Curtains. I went with the 96" length and love how they look. I like that they keep the room from getting too modern or formal looking and they have great weight to them. I'll have some better photos of them when we share the whole room! It was raining the day I took these so they are pretty grainy. I am thinking about getting the larger gingham check for our dining room - they are so beautiful!  And then I hung this chandelier. I love the dainty size of it for this room. And I like the touch of gold it adds to coordinate with the gold lamps I found at HomeGoods. 


I love this Portrait of Josephine Gaujelin. I am not sure I like her on that wall though. I think I may move her over near the desk area. And I am playing around with some mirrors in here. I haven't decided which one I am going to end up using. This round wood one is from HomeGoods. I love the size and the round shape but don't think the overall look will be quite right, but I am not positive yet. 


And then over on this wall I hung our new artwork from Deann Art. This one is called Courage to Bloom (make sure to scroll down past the originals which are sold out, to the gallery wrapped canvas options which are available in several different sizes!) I actually think I love this piece even more than our angel one which I can't believe I am saying. I absolutely LOVE the colors and the overall feel of it! And I LOVE how it looks against the dark walls. However, after a few days of it hanging in here I got a little sad about it because I don't go in this room all that often, so I didn't really get to enjoy it so I ended up moving it downstairs to a spot I get to enjoy it in all day long.  I'll share some pictures of where it ended up in the next post. And then we added a standing lamp from HomeGoods because I had stolen the one we used to have in here to use in Lillie's new room. 


I can't wait to share full room shots once it's finished! 


And lastly here's our newest print just in time for summer! It's another one of our favorite F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes:

Our New Outdoor Living Space


On Friday we shared a peek at our new outdoor seating area that partnered with Wayfair on and today we are going to share more images, many of which have a lot more pink in them thanks to my girls who love pink lemonade! Even though I prefer the more neutral look from Friday it's fun to add some color out here too with just the addition of some fresh flowers, pink lemonade and cupcakes. And we could easily add in some more colorful pillows as well! 

As we mentioned on Friday, the first thing we did was choose our seating. We absolutely loved the look and functionality of this Montclair Wicker Sofa and Montclair Wicker Chairs. We have been thrilled with them and love how they blend in so nicely with the whole wooded area around us and go perfectly with the Felicia Outdoor Fireplace

The fireplace is one of my favorite pieces we've added to any space! I not only love how nice it looks but I am also impressed with how great the quality of it is - it is so heavy!!!!!  We have been using is almost every single night since we got this area set up - it's so relaxing and peaceful sitting out here. I love just sitting out here and the girls have been reading out here and Lillie's even done her homework out here a couple of evenings. And of course their favorite part is roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. 





And then we added some string lights. We went with this set for our little arched trellis (you can see photos of that below) and then we used a 100 bulb set for above the seating area. I liked the idea of one long continuous strand vs. four strands all stuck together. I thought it would be more visually appealing that way and probably safer as well. 

And for pillows we chose these Indoor-Outdoor Buffalo Check Pillows in the 20 by 20 size. I love the large size of the check! We've left the cushions and pillows outside during some lighter rain showers but have brought them in and set them on the porch when we've know there was going to be heavy rain. 



The girls love having pink lemonade and fun pink striped straws. And of course it's fun to have cupcakes out here too!


We love the idea of using our Montgomery tray out here. It makes it easy carrying a bunch of stuff at once (although I removed the vase of flowers first because that weighs so much that it's hard enough just carrying that by itself - ha!)

We found some fun black and white plates that work well out here and we've used this tray several nights to load our s'mores supplies up on to carry back and forth from the kitchen. Trays can be so functional as well as pretty in settings like this.


The girls love our lemonade dispenser.









We also added a rug to help define the space while we decide what type of patio surface we'd like to put down here. I like how the rug looks out here and it's a very durable outdoor style but I am still a bit unsure it will actually last out here in the elements. So far it's worked wonderfully but if it starts to show a lot of wear I may move it up to our porch. But until we can decide what type of surface we'd like to put down it works wonderfully! And then we added some fun outdoor side tables and our old coffee table to help add to the function of the space. 




And here are some pictures without all the pink. =) 




I don't know why, but there's something kind of magical about strands of lights twinkling above you. I absolutely love how they sparkle as dusk approaches and then the warm glow they add once it's dark outside.

A Peek at Our New Outdoor Living Space



I am so excited to share a peak at our new outdoor living space with you all today! And then Sunday I will share more photos with more details. We are so excited to partner up with our sponsor, Wayfair for this project. We have this little space in our backyard that for the last couple of years we have thought would be a great spot to add a little seating area to and this year we decided to pull the trigger and create one out here. It has quickly turned into our favorite spot! We spend almost every evening out here now after dinner and Lola and I spend quite a bit of time sitting out her every afternoon as she snuggles up and reads to me.

The first thing we did was choose our seating. We loved the look and functionality of this Montclair Wicker Sofa and Montclair Wicker Chairs. We are absolutely thrilled with them and they blend in so nicely with the whole wooded area around us and go perfectly with the Felicia Outdoor Fireplace which is easily my favorite addition to the space! We have been using is almost every single night - it's so relaxing and peaceful sitting out here and the girls love making s'mores! And then we added some string lights. We went with this set for our little arched trellis and then we used a 100 bulb set for above the seating area. And for pillows we chose these Indoor-Outdoor Buffalo Check Pillows in the 20 by 20 size. I love the large size of the check!












We also added a rug to help define the space while we decide what type of patio surface we'd like to put down here. And then some side tables and we added our old coffee table to help add to the function. We'll share more images on Sunday!
