Recent Decor Updates

Small living room decor

It is absolutely frigid in DC today–and it takes a lot for me to say that, as I’ll take freezing cold over hot almost any day–and while many people have the day off, lots of offices are still open so I’m heading into work this morning! I’m also trying Pure Barre for the first time in around three years tonight (since Friday, I’ve joined ClassPass for a free month to try things out) and am excited to sample a variety of workouts–including Barry’s and Solidcore, which have both been on my to-try list for a long time. I’ll report back!

Onto today’s order of business…I posted this picture of our living room on Instagram last night and wanted to share some of the more recent home purchases we’ve made. I don’t regret a single one, which makes me happy because it’s an indication that I’m getting increasingly comfortable at making design-related decisions, and that J and I have done a good job combining our preferences! (He prefers modern, vs. I prefer more traditional decor.)

    Your place looks super cute. I’m sorry to hear about the allergic reaction to the fabric in your couch. It does happen. It’s probably the chemicals used to treat the fabrics. I can totally relate, I’m sensitive to many chemicals in particular formaldehyde, which is found in a lot of things including furniture, but at very low levels. Most people don’t have a reaction, but some do. So I’m glad you found an alternative. It looks beautiful and cozy.

      Thank you, Rosa!! And yea, we’re thinking that or that it held an unreasonable amount of dust (I ended up going to an allergist during all this and have a severe dust allergy, apparently)…not complaining we were justified in an upgrade :)
