    I’m so excited to finally share my first real home tour post, starting with my absolute favorite room in our home: the living room. It’s been a dream come true to move in to our new home – it was such a perfect blank canvas with lots of charm and amazing original features, like brass sconces and a fabulous white mantle (and that perfect shade of white paint on the walls was already there too.) Our living room is now home to most of my favorite things and my most enjoyable family moments: from cuddling up to watch an afternoon cartoon to having family dance parties. It’s just a room that’s full of life and makes me so happy.

    The room gets the most amazing light thanks to a huge bay window, so I decided to keep the walls white and clean. I added pops of color and played with patterns and textures to make the room warm and happy. Everything on display is very personal and meaningful. The gallery wall holds our wedding polaroid collage from all of our guests, my grandmother’s needlepoint, watercolors collected during our travels (especially from all over Italy & NYC), and photographs of Paris and Italy, where we honeymooned. And wedding and family photos, of course.

    The built-ins are one of my favorite features and hold most of my treasures, like old books, my collections of bottles and mason jars, vintage pottery, and family photos. The mantle has a mix of my favorite modern finds from etsy artists and my special vintage collections: vintage insulators and mason jars (which I collect because they remind me of my dad, who was an excavator and would find them during digs at work and bring them home to me when I was little) and my grandmother’s brass candlesticks.

    And if you loved those photographs of Paris as much as I do you’ll love tomorrow’s giveaway from Hazelnut Photography, the lady responsible for both the photos of Paris in my living room and the gorgeous photos of my living room itself. You can win your choice of her Paris prints from her print shop Wandering Through. So come back tomorrow to enter.

    •  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
       Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds  And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood
