First Round of Furniture Buys

This is overwhelming... this whole furnishing a house when all of your furniture was purchased by other people. But, HOLY SNAP (crackle and pop), is it fun too! :) 

*All pictures are linked to their sources. If my sleep deprived brain missed something, let me know! 

So let's start with the, I am not sure where this is going to go for sure yet, but I love it pieces.

This bench could go office, entry, bar room, or bedroom... OR living room! I don't care where it goes, I love it so.  

This shelf is fun and modern and looks pretty sturdy. I think it might end up in my office if not the loft/playroom. 

Bar Room. 

We are going to do this Ikea hack for the bar/buffet in the bar room. 

Parts we need for the hack. 

On top of said bar we will put things... starting with this candle. LOL. The gold accents mixed with the industrial concrete vibe just inspired this whole Mad Men, mid-mod bar room thing I got going on. 

Couch for said bar room. 

 I got one of these side chairs from Target and we will just see if we get another one. I am thinking the answer will be yes.

Light for the bar room! I have wanted a space to do one of these sputnik lights FOREVER and am pumped to get to do one in this house. 

There is going to be a fight over where this lamp goes... and it is going to be a fight between me and me. It's gonna get real interesting. 


We ordered two of these gates for the top and the bottom of the stairs... we've never had to deal with stairs with Lyla before and so any tips y'all have on that, let me know!

Living Room

We ordered this custom couch from Interior Define and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to get it. It is the Maxwell in Basketweave Graphite. It's super deep looking and I hope I love it as much as I think/know I will. 

I am going to do a whole separate post on the rest of the living room set up debacle because I am just struggling with the set up and have 800 inspiration images and am not sure where to let them guide me. 

Dining Room

This light might look familiar... it's nearly identical to the one that was in our old house. :)

Lyla Stuff: Her Room and the Loft

We picked up two staples for a Loft/playroom space: a small table and chairs and an adorable tent. 

Most of these tents are well over $100 (looking at you land of nod) and I wanted it be as gender neutral as possible. All kids welcome!

We got these comfy floor cushions for inside her tent. 

And these room darkening curtains for her bedroom. Her room is getting a whole revamp and I am pumped. 

Guest Room

We got a Tuft & Needle mattress for the guest room about 2 months ago and now I want to get one for our bedroom too. I get to sleep on it every other night when LB takes Lyla, and I LOVE IT. It is the most comfortable thing of life, was $600 for a queen and unfolded brilliantly in our guest room. Best money we ever spent on a bed. Period. 

SO yeah. That's where we are at thus far. We still need... oh God. It's too much. It's just too much. 

Basement Rug

Holy hell. It's December. Woah. Anywho.... A lot of times in this house the basement gets no love. Basically, all I have done down here thus far is the gallery wall:


I have hated this pattern on pattern set up in the living room for ages and registered for the rug and coffee table I want down here. We didn't get either as a wedding gift so I frequently re-check our registry to see if any of the things that we love are on sale/clearanced/discounted.


I got lucky two weeks ago because the rug from Target that I wanted was discounted + 20% off and free shipping. Total cost to our house? $125. Bam. So when I had girls night at my house last week, Avery, Sam, Ashley and LB got rid of the block pattern on pattern and got this rug down. Avery was REALLY into helping as all 2-3 year olds are. IMG_3385 IMG_3388

I just LOVE the soft color of the rug. IMG_3389

More helping. IMG_3391 IMG_3396

Love this face that Lb is making at Avery.  She really is the funniest kiddo. IMG_3401

It brightens the whole space up down there and is way softer than the old one. I am off to Home Depot this week to see about spray painting the tiles on the coffee table... and to get some new coordinating throw pillow covers. (It's a slippery slope people: you change a rug and then all of sudden you are buying pillows, and probably a new coffee table...).
