Today I thought I’d take photos and show scenes from my living room.
There just isn’t a good way to get a photo of the entire living room to see how it’s decorated in its entirety.
So I will focus on sections of it.
Decor On The Left Side Of My Couch:
First up is the left side of my couch looking toward my dining space.
You may recall I got the boho-style cupboard with drawers from my favorite store, Tuesday Morning, a few months ago.
I also got the odd-shaped wood bowl and the candle holder on top of it from Tuesday Morning this past week.
These odd-shaped wood bowls are very popular right now. Anything that looks handmade or from nature is part of the “cottagecore” philosophy.
“As a concept, it embraces a simpler, sustainable existence that is more harmonious with nature.
“Aesthetically, it’s a nod to the traditional English countryside style, romantic and nostalgic,” says Davina Ogilvie, founder of Wovn Home.
Ivy & Her Shenanigans:
She’s got a pretty good life, don’t you think? Ivy eats, she sleeps, and she climbs on my lap to be loved and combed.
The night before last she was staring at something up high in my bedroom.
I looked and could barely make out what it was. A tiny spider up on the ceiling.
Ivy misses nothing.
My Gold & Glass Coffee Table:
I really love my coffee table.
It seems they aren’t selling it right now at Amazon.com. Or they weren’t the last time I looked anyway.
I think it is the prize jewel of my living room. Shiny gold and glam.
It’s the perfect size for my apartment living room.
Wise Furniture Choice For A Small Room:
Furniture with a glass top is always a good choice in a smallish room. Because it doesn’t appear to take up much space visually.
Glass and acrylic furniture is basically invisible.
This type of furniture is definitely a good idea in a small space because it all but blends into the walls.
Karen Mills, an interior designer with Interiors by Design, Inc. puts it this way. “It bounces that light around, whereas darker pieces soak up all your sunlight.”
This is the wall opposite the couch. There’s my beige chair, the portable fireplace holding my TV, and a couple of small tables.
I bought both of the tables at Tuesday Morning. The cottage-style table as well as the boho-style table.
There is a very similar boho-style side table the same size at Wayfair for $237.
I paid $59.99 for mine.
I got the cottage-style side table behind it at Tuesday Morning last year for about $25.
Tuesday Morning is about the only store I actually physically enter these days.
I kind of “married” these two pieces of furniture. By placing the octagon-shaped boho-style table slightly underneath the cottage-style table.
I just liked the way it looked that way. A perfect fit.
Aren’t the raised flowers pretty? I think that’s what drew me right to it. Those perky little flowers.
There was only one of these in the whole store. And I look in just about every nook and cranny in that place.
Oftentimes in this store there’s only one of something. This is why I visit the store often.
Tuesday Morning buys last week:
- Wood bowl: $16.99
- Wood candle holder: $7.99
- Octagon boho-style table: $59.99
Yes, last week’s Tuesday Morning trip was a good one. And it’s only a few miles from my apartment to this store.
Oh, I do love a good bargain!
