a day in the life | my living room refresh

over the past few months, we’ve introduced our a day in the life series where we give you regular updates and tours of my home.  we’ve walked you through everything from my kitchen to my downstairs basement.  we love interior design and decorating over here on the blog, and given how much time i’ve had at home lately, i decided to tweak my living and dining room.  i’m a big believer in change and mixing things up.  and an easy way to implement change is to start at home and rearrange things a bit.  it feels good, i promise.  so join us today and take a tour of my living room refresh. 

ruffle shell & white pants

today’s OOTD is perfect for spring or summer—indoors or out.  i’ve got a pair of clean, white pants from Loft, i’m loving this floral ruffle shell, also from Loft.  i love floral for spring and summer and have featured it extensively over the years.  it never goes out of style, and it’s so easy to integrate into your wardrobe.  whether through a pair of floral pants, floral dress, or a ruffle shell like the one i have on today,  nothing says seasonal transition quite like floral.

my living room refresh

i’m always tinkering with my home.  i’m constantly moving furniture around and rearranging placement of everything from my art to lamps, vases, and plants.  it’s amazing how even the most subtle changes to our living spaces can impact our mood for the better.  a few months ago, i gave you all a tour of my living room.  over the past few months, i’ve been playing around with things a bit and making a few tweaks that i wanted to share with you.

a day in the life

the biggest change i made  was rearranging the furniture, and boy has it opened things up.  things feel so much more open now, and i’m really enjoying what feels like extra space.  i’ve also invested in a new dining room chandelier, which i’m loving.  it gives the room a new feel, which amazes me.  hard to believe sometimes how a little change can have such an effect.

    Enjoy following you so much. Had knee replacement on Sept. 11th. Had my incision glued. No staples. Forgive me but I adored you shorter haircut. So sharp. Stay well.

    I love your coffee table and the Reese Witherspoon book. I do have it! You work hard but you are blessed to have such beautiful things. I live vicariously I guess.

    I have collected blue/white pottery since 80s. Even visited Delft factory. Lost everything in 2018 Paradise, CA fire. There is life after ashes and new collecting.

    It’s really cool that you refreshed your living room. I like how you did it. Everything in your ideas at the same time looks restrained and defiant. I admire your ideas and ability to arrange everything in such a way that pleases my eye, haha. The white room in the composition of the painting executed in black colors is generally wonderful. The most interesting thing is that it does not attract attention to itself. I’ll even say more if I didn’t select it if there weren’t a separate photo. Thanks for your ideas !!
