Hi lovelies, hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Despite the freezing whether in the DC area, my fiance and I spent all weekend shopping & decorating the home – with less than 1 week before our Super Bowl party, we want to make sure everything was in place.
Ironically, the room where we made the most progress was the least used room in the house: our living room (not to be confused with the family room, where the TV is). I highly doubt we’ll be using this space during the party, or ever, which makes it even sadder because it might be the prettiest room in the house right now :(
So we’re still missing a coffee table, appropriate art for the wall (the chandelier on chandelier is too much), and some throw pillows for color, but overall the room is coming along quite well. The biggest difference we made this weekend was installing the chandelier – let there be light!
Not sure if you can tell but in the first photo there’s a framed picture of my engagement ring with the caption “the ring that started it all“. It’s actually a postcard the jeweler sent us around our 1-year engagement anniversary, mainly to advertise their wedding bands. But my fiance thought we should frame it because it’s such a beautiful and sentimental card, and it turned out really nice :)
As for the other not-so-sentimental home decor items, I’ve been loving Joss & Main and HomeGoods. Both retailers can be hits or misses, but when you find the right piece, score! Target can also be a great place to shop for home decor and furniture – their Threshold Collection is amazing and very affordable!
What do you all think of our current room? Any decor or retailer suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
