A New Family Room Rug for Emily

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Good morning everyone! I have been looking for a new rug for the family room for some time now. The one we had (HERE) was a dark brown shag…so cozy and great value from Costco, but I love how a patterned rug can transform a room and I really craved a big change for the family room.

I saw a great deal on THIS rug at Target for 30% off. Way under $200 for a 6′ x 9′ rug is pretty unheard of plus free shipping, and a local Target to return to if needed was all too easy not to give it a try…

This was the perfect new addition for the new year. It has that ‘new’ smell that has geared me up to de-clutter and clean the whole house! Jane rolls around on it all day because it is so cozy. It has brightened up the space so much and really just updated the whole room.

Crazy how one piece can change a space and I’m so in love with it I could literally put it in every room of the house! The deal is off now, but a similar one will sure to return soon if any of you are looking for a new statement rug?!!!

Em’s House: Adding Buffalo Check

Monday, October 26th, 2015

A good black and white buffalo check is one of my favorite things this fall!

It seems THIS fabric was out of stock foreveeer at my local Ikea,
so I snatched it up in a heartbeat when I saw it store a few weeks ago!

A newly covered notice board and a few pillow can really change things up, in the best of ways.

All hail to the buffalo check! Who’s with me?!

World Market Finds

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

This weekend Jane stayed home with Daddy while I took myself off for some much needed quality time at World Market!

It was amazing to browse baby-free! I’m always amazed at how current and on-trend their stock is and this visit did not disappoint!

Here’s what I used to cozy up our family room this fall…

1  | Love THIS free printable! It is earthy and perfect for fall. I took it to my local print shop and had it re-sized and printed for just a few dollars. Framed in my favorite frame HERE, it cost under $20 for a great piece of art!

2 | Candlelight is not even and option in the fall, it’s a must! Love THESE brass lanterns from Pottery Barn. THESE copper ones are also beautiful!

3 | I got my sugar pine cones on clearance at Crate and Barrel a while ago but you can buy them on ebay HERE.

4 | We love THIS pouf! Jane loves climbing and jumping on it, and it beckons my tired feet at the end of the day.

5 | Brad got me THIS blanket for my birthday last year. It is perfection in every sense of the word!

6 | September first marks the day my wellies come downstairs for the season HERE. My favorite boots for rain and snow. I’ve had them for years and they still look exactly the same. Worth the splurge!

7 | The world’s greatest pillow cover HERE. Paired with my furry pillows HERE…so heavenly.

8 | I always love copper accents but even more so this time of year. THIS is perfect for the wet months ahead to house all our wet shoes and boots.

Do you have fall favorites you are adding to your house? Please share!
