In yesterday’s blog post I mentioned that we had a big photoshoot in our house over the last few days. It has been a whirlwind of excitement but the unexpected benefit to come out of it was that I could no longer delay adding some finishing touches to our room. It has been a bit neglected as we’ve been completing Polly’s room, our bathroom, and demo’ing the front entry, so I can’t even describe how therapeutic it was to shop our house and add some of the details it’s been missing. It was one of those things where you don’t even realize something’s missing from your life, and now I just can’t wait to crawl into into bed tonight, in our cozy room, and watch Alone in bed with Chris.
Is this a never-before-seen angle of our room? I believe it is. Well, welcome. I swapped benches with Greta’s room, and although ideally I envision more of a black, modern bench here, it worked beautifully for this photoshoot, and is giving me all of the cottage vibes. I incorporated the basket and threw in some cozy knit sweaters to give it the feel of where I would put fresh laundry. And speaking of layers, I snatched this green blanket from over the back of our living room sofa (don’t worry I already replaced it with another).
I always struggled with the spaces on either side of the fireplace. I’ve added art and it felt too busy, but I love the way this sturdy pedestal works with the trim and adds height to the dried hydrangeas on top. Snipping these branches months ago has been the gift that just keeps on giving. How are these still holding up so perfectly?
Above our bed, I hung a vintage rug remnant, a gift from our friends at Loloi last Christmas.
For the photoshoot, I added our lumbar pillow back to our bed–linked below! (it was reading a little too flat without it) but I really tried to keep the bed looking more relaxed and casual than totally crisp and steamed. And did you see in my stories this new art from Juniper I got printed? I had the frames hanging there without art for way too long, finally filled it, and why did it take me so long?? The amount of time that it took me to purchase the digital files, send them to Walgreens, pick them up, and frame them was all under an hour. Like how? And for $20 for both prints! There’s just really no need to procrastinate hanging art any more! So let this be your not-so-subtle reminder haha.
