It’s FRIDAY. WOO HOO! Another week, come and gone. How can it already be part way through March? I feel like this year has FLOWN by! I’m so ready for summer though (I always am). Also, Adam and I’s first wedding anniversary in less than a month away. That is absolutely INSANE. We have some really awesome things in store for you surrounding that day and I am absolutely stoked to show you what we’ve been working on. BUT, that will have to wait. Today is exciting however, because my home tour continues! I am excited to show you our home tour: dining room + living room. They are MOSTLY done but I couldn’t wait. Let’s do this.

If you know me at all, you know that I love minimalistic furniture and home decor. My husband and I are very much into clean lines, light fabric + walls paired with dark wood, etc. Our dream home is a loft with exposed brick walls (one day).
We chose to bring some of that into our home with this dark wood table from Wayfair. It is sturdy, well made and beautiful. We LOVED it from the moment we saw it. Honestly, it is even better in person than it is online. Though it is only the two of us right now, we enjoy having six seats so that we can grow into our table and also have friends and family over for dinner.
The table runner, placemats and wooden bowl are all courtesy of pier 1. I have been obsessed with table runners forever, so now that I finally have my own table to decorate the first thing I bought was obviously that. It is cream and gold, which matches the rest of our house (see the cream and gold pillows in the living room). The placemats are awesome because they match my actual kitchen (we have all cobalt blue kitchenaid accessories). This bowl is something that I think is super quirky. I love the rough and uneven edges. Eventually, I think I will move it to a coffee table should we get one.
Our living room is where we spend the majority of our time together when we are both home. This St. Louis print is my favorite part of the room. As we grow and move around, we plan on getting one for every state we live in. I have been trying to decide if I want to do a gallery wall around the print, but haven’t decided on what pictures or types of frames yet.
This couch is the matching set to our loveseat from my makeup room tour! We were going to get a different couch but decided that one day when we get a home, we will probably want a matching couch set all in the living room. Our TV stand is from IKEA and took 6 tries to put together. I digress.
We also really love those lamps. They are from Target! Don’t be alarmed by my skulls on the shelves..there is a story there! My first sugar skull came back from my dad when he went to Cabo on a business trip, my second one from our honeymoon is Playa Del Carmen and the third is also from my dad and Cabo! I plan on getting one every time I go to Mexico.
Our mantel currently houses our college diploma, some pretty flowers from my dear friend and three of my favorite wedding pictures. I have waited my whole adult life to have my own fireplace. I’m completely obsessed.
