A peek at Elsie's living room...

Metal Crate Coffee Table + Thrive Furniture Couch (via A Beautiful Mess)Hi friends! I am so excited to share a little peek at the decor progress I'm making here at our new home. I still have a mile-long to-do list. But since we won't be sharing an official home tour for a while, I thought you might enjoy some random updates on our process. I spent this past weekend working on our TV room. Our goal is to create a space that is comfortable and relaxing. Here are a few peeks: Metal Crate Side Table IdeaI love the idea of making tables from unusual objects! For this side table, I stacked two metal crates that I found at flea markets and stacked books inside the bottom crate. 

Our Nixon sofa set arrived last week, and we are in love with it. Jeremy picked out this color and I think he did a great job! The couches are bigger and comfier than I imagined they would be. Now we just need some more fuzzy blankets and pillows! Living Room Progress (A Beautiful Mess)Here's the room looking in from our bedroom (the two rooms are connected by a large, open arched doorway). When we first looked at the house, we loved the idea of having a more private area to watch TV and movies and a separate living area (downstairs) for entertaining guests. This room still needs a lot of detail, so it will hopefully look very different next time I share photos! I'm still hunting for some personal wall art and a really special lighting fixture (maybe a chandelier?). Living Room CornerLiving Room CornerDecor Sources: Nixon Couch Set/Thrive Furniture, Metal crates + small lamp + bar cart/vintage, floor lamp + pillows/Urban Outfitters, Rug + curtains/Ikea. More to come!

I'm loving the decorating process in this new home. I think I'm the kind of person who needs to do all the basics and then add small details over time. I find it easier to choose large pieces than small details. How long did it take you to settle in to your current home? xo. Elsie
