REINCARNATION: Sectionals

Right now I can’t even believe that I just wrote the word sectional out in my design blog. I have always hated sectional! The word just reminds me of an overstuffed lazy-boy in microsuede, probably with a few stains on it hidden in a basement somewhere. But recently I have thought about putting a sectional in our living room, crazy I know! Is it possible to have a stylish home with a sectional? I think so. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for sectional couches and a few of my favorite stylish options.

I am obsessed with this sectional. I don't think David would agree to anything like this! I'll have to keep looking!

Now we're thinking a leather sectional, because I know I won't be able to get David to give his leather couch up without replacing it with another leather couch. I of course am obsessed with this one from Restoration Hardware. (The Collins Sectional)

If you want just a classic looking sectional to go with any interior you might want to go with the Hampton Sectional from Pottery Barn. Clean, classic and comes in a lot of neutral colors!

HOME-SPIRATION: White Walls Dark Floors

Good news! David has official finished all the dry wall work that was needed for our repairs (yes he quite a handy man!) Last night we were testing paint colors to see what we like! I have always just loved clean white walls and dark hardwood floors. I feel like that look will never go out of style! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for white walls and dark hardwood floors. Hopefully one day our downstairs will be in these pictures!

INSTAPOST: Our Flooded Home

Well I have been absent from the blogging world this past week because of some crazy and unfortunate news! My brother had his lovely wedding in Annapolis, Maryland and while we were out of town our water heater broke and completely flooded the first floor of our house! The ironic (and frustrating!!) thing about this is that we had a NEW water heater in our garage that we had planned on installing when we got home!

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

Before the carpet was taken out... it might not look like much but man that carpet was soaked!

YUCK.

My sweet man set up our living room again after the carpet was ripped out so it didn't look so sad!

This was so not what we were expecting, but it may be a blessing in disguise. We are hoping to do a TON of DIY projects to really get this place the way we want it to be! Hopefully in a few months (yes I am being optimistic here!) we will have the renovated home of our dreams 🙂 Stay tuned!

 

SUNDAY INSPIRATION: Roots and Wings

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

 

Happy Father’s Day to all! It has be a long weekend of celebrating, but I am grateful that I get to spend Father’s Day weekend with my Dad! As soon as I read this quote, I knew exactly what day I wanted to post it. I am so lucky to have been able to spread my wings and live in cities like New York and Dallas. I even ended up in one of those cities for good! I know none of that would have been possible without my Dad. He prepared me to be a go getter and a hard worker. He has always been the one to really focus on preparing for the future, and for that I am so grateful because I truly love where I am at.

So Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads, father figures, and futures Dads out there!

 

 

HOME-SPIRATION: Office Accessories

So this is week two of full-time salary employment, and I am loving it! This post really was inspired by my efforts to make my desk a little more comfortable and home-y. David and I went to Target to look for office supplies, specifically a lamp for my desk (I need lots of light to work!) This was a terrible and amazing idea all wrapped in to one because I ended up with a cart FULL of things! Here are some of my favorite office-spiration images of great office accessories!

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Nautical Wedding

In honor of my brothers upcoming nuptials this weekend I thought I would do a wedding wednesday post inspired by their wedding destination! Kelly and EJ are getting married in Annapolis, Maryland, this gorgeous seaside town, and their reception will be right on the water! Though their wedding isn’t a nautical theme, I thought I would share some of my favorite nautical themed wedding photos. Perfect for a destination wedding right near the sea, or for those a little more far away where the sea is a special place for them!
