Can't believe this is actually happening, but I am sharing a recent update in the house! I have been mentioning I would do this for about a year and have yet to share much of anything. First of all, you can see the color of the walls in these pics for the main part of the house. Remember my paint story? The color I ended up picking was Marilyn's Dress by Benjamin Moore. I still love it. I wanted a very light gray that was cooler, and in my eyes, it's exactly that!
Also wanted to update on the post I did a while back on the drawing we picked up from the Marin Flea Market. We had wanted to frame it and we finally did! The sailor who watches the living room. Really like the way he turned out:
This spot next to the fireplace once had a bench that we really couldn't sit on. It was a waste of space. Now, we have a cozy spot by the fire to kick up our feet and hang out. Which we actually do and Chris is happy he has a spot for when, "I fluff up the sofa and chop the pillows and we can't sit down". Like that ever happens ;)
Again, this is a work in progress! There are still things I would love to do for this small space by the fireplace. The next step is to dip dye the stool I picked up at Target a few months back. But, most of the items that have collected here are from around the house. The white side table is a vintage find from a while back that used to live in our guest room - but it was not the right fit for the space, so I pulled it out so that I'd have a spot to rest my drink while hanging out. The lamp was a score from Joss & Main. The leather chair is a dining chair from Resto that was the perfect size for this space.
Hope you enjoyed a peek into our place. I'll be posting our dining space soon which is also a major work in progress!
Leaving you all with some pretty tulips & ranunculus that I had to snap while taking pics for this space:
