Tips & Tricks for Designing the Perfect Coffee Table!

I’m SO CLOSE TO BEING DONE with our living room redo. Y’all, this pregnancy tiredness is kicking my booty! (But that’s what’s supposed to happen in pregnancy, so I will take it!)

One of the things we’ve done is get new furniture – out with the microfiber and in with the leather, and none too soon! (I imagine cleaning up spit-up and other bodily fluids is much easier when it comes to leather!) And one of the pieces of new furniture is a new coffee table/ottoman.

I struggled with this for a while. I wanted something unique, yet functional, yet not too big, yet flexible. I finally settled on something (and you’ll have to wait until I reveal the room to see it) but what I really should have done was just gone to Chairish.com

From WHITE to BRIGHT…with Chairish!

There’s not much better than walking into a blank slate of a room, is there? When you first walk into an empty room, the possibilities are endless – and I love that feeling! The room can essentially become anything you want it to be at that point! (I’m getting excited just thinking about it, ha!)

So when Holly from Chairish asked me to design an entire room around just one (albeit fabulous) accent chair, I wasn’t quite sure that I could. An entire room, starting with one chair? Normally I have a bit more to go on…but I figured I would give it a shot!

I chose THIS chair:

THIS is a Lee Industries Leather Wing Chair. Is it not the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen?! I just love it!

Sparkle & Shine for the Holidays…with Chairish!

If you’re like me, you open your calendar to December and see MANY holiday events on your schedule. And, if you’re a woman (and maybe even if you’re a man!) you KNOW the timeless question is: what ever will I WEAR?!

And, I don’t know if you’re like me in this regard, as well, but I don’t want to walk into a gathering wearing something that someone else already has on! (Maybe that’s just a crazy vain girl thing…so then I guess I’m a crazy vain girl! HA!)

Sometimes, all you need is just that one piece of jewelry to make even an outfit you’ve worn before POP for those special events. Just a little bit of sparkle or a touch of shine. And that’s where Chairish comes into play!

Chairish makes it fun and easy for design lovers to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. Their shop exclusively features curator-approved treasures in a full-service and trustworthy environment. It’s vintage shopping and selling online!  In their own words: Buy. Sell. Adore. And they have SO MUCH FUN STUFF on their website! CLICK HERE to see it all!

And now?! I’m excited to share with all of you that Chairish has just added thousands of vintage jewelry pieces to their marketplace!

I’ve always been a huge fan of vintage jewelry (one of these days I’ll do a post here on the blog about all my vintage jewelry pieces) so I was excited to check out the new selection! Take a look at what I found!

Are these earrings not GORGEOUS?!

I’m in the Mood to Redecorate…

Just wait. When my husband (who is subscribed to my blog, of course!) gets the notification that I published a post called “I’m in the Mood to Redecorate”, I’m gonna hear about it!

But honestly, I am sooo in the mood!

Right now, our living room is shades of brown and burgundy. I chose that because I felt like it was warm and comfy and hospitable – and it’s all those things. See?

I mean, I’m definitely no designer, but I think it’s cozy! But it’s been like that for a few years now, and I’m wanting to do something different! I think maybe white, and shades of yellow and gray!

Also, our comforter on the bed in the Master Bedroom needs to be replaced, so I’m thinking a combination of teal and corral! (The room is already teal and browns, but I want to brighten it up a little bit! It feels dark sometimes, and I don’t like that.)

And third, our front bedroom will eventually, down the road, no, I am not pregnant, turn into a nursery. And I’ve always loved the white, navy blue and kelly green combo…kind of like what I have going here on the blog! So I might go that route, one never knows!

As I’m pondering all of these things, I got an email from Holly at Chairish.

Okay, first of all: are you familiar with Chairish?
