Mood Board

Current Mood

Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.  ― Jane Austen

A few weeks ago I posted over on Instagram that I was dreaming of a living room shakeup. I still love our tiny house; however, I miss being able to rearrange my furniture like a 13 year old girl changes her posters.  (Wait, did I just date myself?!)

So it was serendipitous timing when a lovely team member from Arhaus contacted me about putting together a living room mood board.  And although such a task can easily send me down an existential rabbit hole (I mean, who really even needs furniture…..or things?! #INTJproblems), I reigned it in and actually discovered something: I already own most of what I want for my “dream” living room, albeit I wouldn’t mind a sofa upgrade 😉

Since our house is only 760 sq ft the living room is the hub of our home, unlike the kitchen in most other modern homes.  It is also the literal center of our footprint; thus I obsess about it the most.  As Heston continues to develop and change, so does our current space.  And it will again and again to continue meeting the needs of our little family.  From the early colic days when I wanted nothing on the walls or floor or really anything visible that might remotely stimulate our little scream-machine to the current gallery wall and layered rug concoction that has kept us warm this winter, our living room is the heart of our home. And fortunately for me it is filled with things I love. (Maybe I should do a proper show and tell one day soon?) Until then, here is what is currently inspiring me:
