The thing about design is that it never ends. Something new comes in to your space and it changes your whole perspective..and things shift once again. It all began very innocently. I was just going to vacuum and remove the last bits from the holidays.
The downstairs rug moves upstairs and the upstairs rugs moves downstairs. And "big brown" who has always been too large for our space is off to a new home.
Can you spy the little helper sweeping the floor? He is back there if you look closely!
I purchased "big brown" over 6 years ago from an outlet store and at that time big was in. Understanding scale weather in the garden or in an interior is an important part of design that I look at more closely now.
So with the house in shambles we headed to Ikea with the beans to look for a smaller sofa for our space.
Better, but after living with it for a couple of days it just wasn't right. The hubs is very patient with me when it comes to things like this. He knows this side of me very well and I appreciate that so much!
The thing I like about interior spaces is that, unlike gardens, they do what you say. Pillows don't wilt and become temperamental! They just sit there and do their thing! But seriously, to create the stage where our family life happens is a pretty cool thing and one that I will always be passionate about.
The start of our little homage to Valentine's Day on the mantel. A wooden love sign from my mom and a strawberry picking messy heart picture with my girl.
Now with little people we have decided to keep this couch thing to a reasonable price as I witnessed one of my beans using the chair as a kleenex today! All of these sofas are under 600 bucks at The Classy Home.
And then one of my favorites from West Elm.
So as of now we have no couch in the living room which has been fun for the beans and their nest making habits of pillows and blankets! For me it is a chance to hone in on a fresh new take. Mirror down? Art above the sofa? What about you.... are you changing things up in the New Year?
As always friends...
Happy making, baking and growing!
