Hi guys! I thought I’d share what I hope will be a helpful post for many. I get lots of questions about the items used in our home on social media and on the blog. I love finding a great home product recommendations (blogs are so great for that!) so I wanted to share what gets asked about most and my thoughts on each item. Also, just in case you didn’t know, there is a complete source list of most everything in our house under the Paint Colors and Resources tab. Check it out if there’s something specific you’re scoping out!
1. Our Living Room Coffee Table
This coffee table is probably the most asked about item in our home – and for good reason! It’s a classic bricklayer coffee table that can go with so many styles. It can go with modern, rustic, farmhouse or industrial looks so easily, and I’m sure many others! It’s the Anjou Coffee Table from Home Decorators Collection. We purchased it when we moved into our house three years ago, and are still very happy with it. It is very heavy and solid, and has held up really well. We purchased it before there were stain options, but I would say the closest to our table is the natural.
2. Our Jute Rug
We also get a lot of questions about this 9×12 jute rug from Overstock in our living room. I get asked a lot if it is comfortable and how it holds up. I would not say it is particularly soft. In fact, the first day or two we had it, it hurt my feet. But after we got used to walking on it it wasn’t a big deal. It’s definitely not plush, but doesn’t bother me. It does shed a bit, but I only notice when I try to do yoga on it : ) Overall I’d say it’s a classic jute that adds so much texture to a space.
3. Our Hearth Room Sofa
We purchased the Montgomery sofa from Birch Lane when we refreshed the hearth room about a year ago and I. Am. In. Love. It is crazy comfortable, so much so that I almost prefer sleeping on it over our bed! It is nice and deep and very plush and full. I love it so much I’m contemplating getting a second one if we move. I can’t yet speak to how the slipcovers hold up in the wash, because we haven’t had to wash them yet, but I’ll update this post once that happens. I love that it is a classic, timeless shape, but still casual with the slipcovers. I cannot recommend this couch enough!!
4. Our Hearth Room Coffee Table
I love this Yesenia coffee table from Wayfair because it’s a nice mix between farmhouse and modern. It has clean lines and a rustic gray wood top. It’s also great for our space because it’s a smaller size. We’ve been really happy with it.
5. The Painting Above Our Mantel
This painting may be one of my favorite things we own. Its a statement piece for sure, but is also very neutral and calming. I’m sad to say it was a TJ Maxx online find and it’s no longer available : ( If it ever comes back in stock (as things sometimes do on there) I will make sure to let you guys know! If you’re looking for something similar, I tried to round up a few similar picks shown below (if you’re reading this in an email or reader like Bloglovin, you may need to pop over to the blog to see the photos).
6. Our Nursery Glider
This is probably a close second on the most-asked-about list. I understand the tension when looking for a glider between wanting style, function, comfort and price. Gliders are stupid expensive, and I really don’t understand why. The Delta Children Upholstered Glider in Sand is so affordable and we have been very happy with the comfort. I’d buy it again for sure!
You guys…I think I stumbled on the best kept secret on the internet today! If you search the name of designer pillows (like Kelly Wearstler, Walter G, Peter Dunham, etc) there are the same pillows you see in boutiques and from interior designers for $60-150 for about 10 bucks! Most have a few dollars…
You guys know I had fun putting this one together! These are all either things Lexie owns or things that have been on her/my wish list for a while. There are quite a few bigger ticket items on here (though certainly not all) because I really like to gift one very special item each year….
I’ve confessed my love for celebrating holidays with little ones before, and Easter is no exception. You can see how I decked out Lexie’s first Easter basket last year here. She was tiny then, and is definitely more of a toddler now, so I know she’ll really enjoy the little gifts we’ve picked up for…
Amazon Prime Day is almost here! I’ve looked through all the upcoming lightning deals and rounded up my favorite buys. Some of them are not on sale at the time I’m hitting publish, but will be “released” for Prime Day sale at certain times throughout Monday and Tuesday, so if you don’t see a sale…
Labor Day Sales have arrived! It’s definitely one of the best times of year to snag deals on furniture and home decor. I’ll be rounding up my favorite sale finds this weekend over on Instagram, but today on the blog I wanted to share some gorgeous picks from McGee & Co. Often their pieces can…
I have so much fun every year picking out items for the holiday gift guide, and this year was no exception! There is just something so special about giving a truly beautiful gift, especially when it’s something they’ll love but not necessarily buy for themselves. I hope this guide gives you some great ideas for…
