A Cozy Little Living Room

So if I were to start with a completely blank living room space, I would love something natural and cozy. I love modern looks, but I just can’t imagine it in my house. What can I say? I would just prefer to be calm and serene compared to something trendy that I wouldn’t like in two years (or even two months). Here is what my dream living room would look like:

Pretty, right? I’m so sorry, I made this mood board a loooong time ago, and some of the items were from Joss and Main and not available any more (boo!). If you love the pieces, make sure to pay attention to the sales on Joss and Main. I know that they pop up old items a lot. And yeah, I’m using the zoo print again. I wouldn’t use it in multiple rooms of a house, personally, but I love the way it looks here.

The reason I chose a green paint color was because I made this after I watched The Family Man (for the 23,985th time) and I fell hard for the green in their living room. Their house is so homey.

Things I’m Loving

Well, hello there. Long time no see.

I have no idea how I’m going to make my posting schedule work, but ya gotta just work with me right now. Darn school!


So I thought that I would wrangle a few things that I’m loving, since I’m at my dad’s house and my camera is at my mom’s.

What I'm Loving Lately

1- I got a Gap gift card for Christmas, and I needed jeans. I love these. They are so comfortable and they look like really well fitted skinny jeans, but they’re just jeggings.

2- I don’t know what it is about this pattern, but I have been obsessed with it lately. (Thanks, Sea Lemon, for sparking it!)

3- Omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg x 100,000. I was at the grocery store the other day, saw this, and something in me told to to get it. I had it last night and it was sooooooooooooo good. I also got the banana chocolate and almonds and it is really good, too. I can’t wait to try the whole line!

4- I just saw this movie the other night because it was on T.V. I was expecting it to be weird and not like it, but I actually really did! I love how they portrayed the future. But I really hope that, well, orange is not the new black. ‘Tis not my thang.

5- Snow is my homeboy these days.

6- I have been following Nicole for a while (maybe since July?), and to be honest, I didn’t really dig her style. Some sort of switch flipped within the past couple of weeks and I am addicted! I have spent, umm, quite a few hours on her site with in the past few days. I love following Calvin’s nursery. It looks so cute! And I love that she chose white, I love bright kids’ rooms.

7- So I kinda made a wedding registry? Is that weird? I love this website.

8- Got this for Christmas and it’s a pretty quick read. Although I haven’t finished it. I read really slowly. I love Amy, and I’m a huge fan of Parks and Rec. And it’s quite lovely that we have the same birthday. :)

9- I saw this on Pinterest the other day and I have totally been on the powder room dramatic wallpaper trend. Such a sweet pop!

10- If you listened to Serial and haven’t seen this, you will LOVE IT. I laugh every time I watch it, and my mom and I always quote “whaaaaaaaaaaat?”. Bahahahaha.
