Woven Wall Hanging

Woven Wall Hanging

In my original mood board for our living room design, I’d included a woven wall hanging. I started procrastinating about it though, because the piece I’d used was basically impossible to get hold of. I’d had a look at other weavings on Etsy, but I wanted something both very textured and very neat, and everything I found was either one or the other. So I largely gave up on the idea, and wrote this post about all the options I was considering. Then, my friends, I found Anita Meads of By Bella… View Post

A Beautiful Rug That Wasn’t Meant to Be

So I accidentally bought a rug. Something that has happened more times than I’d like to admit. In my design board for the living room, I had a neutral Beni Ourain in here.

I’m thinking probably one… View Post

Living Room Progress And To Do List

I shared the plans for our living room here a few months ago, but here’s a refresher: This isn’t a cheap room redo – there are a few new pieces that will be investments, for sure, which is why it’s taking time. That said, I do want to get it to a point where it looks mostly put together, which is why I’m joining in with the #1Room30Days challenge hosted by Alaya at Behind the Big Green Door. I’m bored of having tassels hanging on the wall in place of real… View Post
