Just to carry on from yesterdays small peek into my office, I thought I'd share some of my favorite features about the main floor of our house.
I've mentioned before that my mom is an incredible decorator. She can walk into a room and completely visualize a new look. She can also make a room like like it's straight out of a pottery barn catalog for about 1/4 of the price.
It takes skills.
And I don't have really any of those. My sister got them all.
But thankfully my mom comes to visit quite often and will help me with decorating whenever I ask.
Here are a few instances where she helped me pull areas of the downstairs together. Almost everything was found at either Ikea, HomeGoods or Target.
The yellow piece at the bottom of this photo used to be at my parent's home in South Carolina. But they sold it, so it made it's way north and settled into our foyer. I'm grateful. It's a beautiful piece and I've filled it with dishes and a few boxes from Ikea.
I love those white candlesticks. The candles came from Target. I'm also trying really hard to find a new print for the easel. The one in there right now is too light. It needs to have a bit more color.
Speaking of prints, I'm so excited to fill my Ikea gallery wall. Every frame and the two shelves are from ikea. You can see I have the Kitchen Conversion print, from SweetFineDay on Etsy. My sister bought this for me for Christmas and I am so excited that I finally get to display it. And to the left of that is the print of Biscuit, from Diesel + Juice. I may move her up to the office since most of the other prints are going to be kitchen and home related. We'll see.
(since this photo I've found some awesome prints that I can't wait to share with you!)
Finally, we've come to the kitchen. I bought this little thing from Ikea. I need a few flowers to go in the center vase and maybe something a little taller to sit next to my salt and pepper cellars.
The searching never really ends, does it?
I hope you enjoyed seeing a few little moments of my house. I'll show you more soon!
