Warm and Cozy — Roundup For Your Home

You know that old weather saying, “in like a lion, out like a lamb”? That’s pretty much every Fall here in Chicago. There is no easing into the cold weather. One day it’s 95° and the next, bam, it’s 21° and snowing. Which is presently what’s happening outside my window. But there’s something about that first snowfall. It’s magical. I curl up under a warm, cozy blanket and sip my wine slow.

To help ease my body into the frigid temps, I tend to treat myself. Something to make the next few months couped up inside a little more special. Here’s a little round of the warm and cozy home decor I have on my wishlist.

Pink & Green Modern Living Room

Sometimes I like to play if I had a million dollars, I might makeover my living room. Late at night I start scrolling through Pinterest and get lost for hours. The other day, a funky green tufted sofa caught my eye, and it got me thinking. That beauty would look mighty fine combo’d up with a pretty pink somethin’ somethin’. About 3 hours later, this is what I came up with…because when you’re unemployed, you have time to be creative and play around.

And now that we will all singing Barenaked Ladies for the remainder of the day, let’s gather up all our monopoly money, play pretend, and spend that paper.

A Color Study — Black

As of late, I’ve been having a love affair with the color black. I’ve never had copious amounts of bold hues in my home, but you find pops of pink, green and every shade of blue if you have a look around. After creating Potty Paradise, my love for the dramatic, moody effect the color black has on a space made my heart grow three times.

Here are a few things that have either made it into my shopping cart, or I’m wishing Santa would bring me…yes, I said Santa in June, I’m sorry. But it’s only because I’m in love with a pair of Gucci shoes that I’m going to have to save my pennies for.

Vintage Scores — Hallway Decor

I fell in love with a blue chair last Fall. The Savoy Flea posted it to her Instagram and the velvety goodness caught my eye…my heart skipped a beat. A couple months later, I made my way down to the shop. The entire drive into the city I wondered if the pretty blue peacock chair had sold…I rang the bell, walked in and finally saw her in person. She took my breath away. Another customer walked over and touched her. Laser beams shot out of my eyes and every fiber of my being wanted to scream back off!

I didn’t dare sit in her for fear i’d never leave. It was pure torture to walk out the door.

Home Decor – New Artwork for Spring

Since we moved in, I’ve kinda wanted to break up with the artwork in the kitchen. A beach scene I bought 5 years ago that hung above the mantle in the old house. I loved it when I bought it, but now, well, I think it’s just time for a change. When we moved, I dismissed my old fling and haphazardly placed it in the kitchen…a tropical, Hawaiian beach scene. It’s been a good run with this beachy piece, but let’s shake it up and do a switcheroo. Let’s find some new artwork for Spring!
