My Favorite Spot in Our Home

Hello everyone!!  This is Part II of a fun blogging series I am doing with four talented bloggers. This month we are featuring our favorite spot on our homes.  Everyone has a favorite place in their home, right?.  One that beckons them to sit down in relax. One where they go to hide from the kids?? For many, that place is the retreat of their bedroom.  Not so much for me. You see, my bedroom also houses my disheveled office.  I attempted to add a desk to tame the clutter, and you can read about that here.  Still, it is not a place I go to relax, as my work is always staring me in the face.

Instead, my favorite spot in our home is our living room.  After all, it is where all of the “living” is done.  Our home is on the smaller side and only has a living room and not a living room/family room combination.  So we spend a lot of time in it.  We are in desperate need of new couches, but with a 3 an 5 year old, I am not making that investment until we outgrow the peanut butter on hands phase, if you know what I mean.

I have made the best of the sofa by adding fun throw pillows to distract.  I can’t think of a more affordable decorating trick that makes such an impact. Pillows are definitely my go-to.  I am a hoarder of sorts!

Here is a shot of my favorite chair in the room.  She (yes, it is a she), is all dolled up for Christmas.

Our living room also features some DIY’s I am proud of.  My husband and I made this DIY upholstered console table and I love the way it ties into our space.  You can read a full tutorial here.

I love our family room because it is cozy, yet sophisticated.  There is nothing better than sitting down on a weekend, sharing a bottle of wine (or two) and hanging out there.  Speaking of wine, what room would be complete without a bar cart?  Here is ours.  It is from Target and I Heart It!  You see me rave about it and give tips on how to style it here.
