Front Room Redo

Every three months or so I like to rearrange the furniture in our front room.  It gives me an opportunity to take care of dust bunnies and the change just feels good.  The last time I did this I found an arrangement I really liked, and things stayed the same for over six months.  Honestly I had no plans to try anything new for awhile, that is until my husband asked me to do something different.  He was beginning to feel cramped, and truth be told once he brought it up I had to agree.  So my son and I spent the day pushing and pulling, lifting and dusting until everything was in it's new place.  Now it feels more open and airy, which is so much better than cramped and cluttered.

We bought this sofa 10 years ago as a wedding gift; it's probably time for a new one.  The green chair I've had since high school.

This mid-century dresser was found in a second-hand furniture shop in our old neighborhood; it's one of my favorite pieces.

This plant is perfect for me; I cannot kill it.  The stack of books behind the plant are a gift from my aunt- learning books for my son.

I love my books.

All the wall art is from thrift, vintage, or second hand shops.  The one in the middle was found at a dollar store ten years ago.

Farmhouse table we use as a desk found on Craigslist.

I guess I really like this color combo.

My son's elephant found a new home among precious photos.


  1. Oh I love it! Great work momma! You inspire me!

    I really love the candid and raw pics you post. I feel like I'm there with you when I see them.

    Hope you're feeling good these days....

  2. Thank you so much Heather. You inspire me too; can't wait to see what you do with your new place!

    Nail-biting over here waiting for your letter :)
