Monday Musings 008

I am loving this article by Emily Henderson that lists out 75 (seventy five!) affordable accent chairs. They are all under $500 and MANY of them were on my short list. Also check out her lighting resources and sleeper sofa roundups. Good stuff y'all. 

Modern paper napkins for your next party, cause who has time to wash cloth ones? 

Because I am always browsing, I came across this modern, $70 guest bed set up on JcPenny. Yeah. JCP. Still out there fighting the good fight. 

The dark blue chair from Macy's came and it is THE CHAIR to curl up in and read a book. Thank goodness. 

I've been slowly coming out of my "I don't care what I look like cause I have a newborn" phase, and have been slowly adding things to my beauty wishlist/orders from Amazon, cause I am still a mom that has no time to go to the mall. I have been nearly or totally paraben free for about 8 years and so most, if not all things, on this list will not have parabens. Here's what I am digging:

We also got this dog crate for Skip... cause he is a jerk... who pees now... indoors. 

And finally... tomorrow I am showing you pictures of the living room furnished... for now. :) Yay. 

Before Pictures of Current House

Ok folks. Here are the snaps I grabbed on the first day that we got possession of the new house. I was in a hurry so i am hoping that I got most of the angles I will need going forward. If not, oh well. I tried. :)

We start with the front of the house, the hallway off of the garage, Lawren's office, and the mudroom space/closet. 

Back at the front door we've got the formal dining on the right, stairs straight ahead, kitchen to the right of the stairs, then informal dining by the sliding door, and living room. 

Heading upstairs we've got the loft at the top of the stairs, our bedroom and bath.

Lyla's room and the third and fourth bedrooms finish the upstairs. The fourth bed will be my office. 

Down to the basement is the large rec space, the guest bedroom and guest bath. 

Shew. I am tired now. I will be back later this week with some actual furnished shots of this house.
