As I mentioned in last Friday’s day in the life post I am currently working on creating a little “she den” for myself in one of the bedrooms in our home. For the last two years the bedroom has only had a desk and chair in it and with the transition we needed to find new place for the desk to live.
After trying it in a few places we decided that it looked best in our living room. We had to rearrange the space to make it all work and I am really pleased with the results. The room looks much more full and has a nice flow to it. Here is a tour…
I love the tall bookcase on the side of the room. It creates some much needed height and provides a space for me to display holiday items and nic-nacs.
I put my snowmen out after Christmas and this guy is my favorite. He looks nice next to the monthly print that I have displayed from Dear Lillie.
The desk looks nice on an angle in the corner. I used command media hooks on the back of the desk to hide the cords. I use the space to write checks letters to my clients and pay bills so it will be nice to be in the main area of the house so I don’t miss out on any of the action.
I worked at this area yesterday and I really enjoyed the light and the view to the backyard. I have 5 rose bushes under the bay window which will be nice to see this Spring. Harper likes to sit on the window sill and watch the squirrels so I need to make a cushion so she doesn’t scratch the wood.
I’m still loving the color of these side tables. To see what they looked like before I transformed them (and my living room for that matter) click here.
I bought these soft velvet pillows at Pier1 last weekend. They add another layer to the couch that I like, I really noticed a gap when I put my Christmas pillows away.
I bought the tray on my coffee table at Pottery Barn and I am always changing what is inside of it. Right now I have a winter green wreath that is layered on a mercury candlestick that I just bought at my local hardware store for only $4.50.
I’ve added fresh lavender to a few rooms in the house for the winter. It really adds a nice natural element and I like that I can plant it in the spring.
Well I hope you enjoyed my living room. I know I will keep adding to it so I will keep you posted. My new “she cave” project is in progress so I hope to share the results with you in the next month or so. Have a great week!
