We’ve been making a few little updates around the house over the past couple months in preparation for two big, exciting things coming up in the beginning of next year. The spaces that were almost there, but not quite–like the living room–got a few finishing touches. Like, our first ever actual coffee table. And new pillows after 4 years.
Across from the couch, we finally found the twin to our leather chair and we added lighting and an end table in between the two. There’s much to share, and trust me when I say you will be seeing it all plenty in the new year (!!) but you can catch lots of glimpses on Instagram (@chrislovesjulia–head over there for a $250 Wayfair giveaway today!) until we’re able to share. But, for now, I wanted to give you a little sneak peek of this side of the living room and share links to all the sources below.
Have a merry weekend!

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
