Good morning, friends!  Well, it’s been a couple of months in the making, but today I’m finally giving you guys a little update on things at the Palm Springs house, starting with the main living area.  I’m not gonna lie – it took a ton of trial and error, but this space finally feels like home and we LOVE hanging out here.  And as for the decorating process, well, here goes.

This whole shebang started out with the couch.  As I first mentioned back here, I became obsessed with anything and everything from Article. and took a special liking to so many of their sofas.  Originally I was super into this Sven Sofa, but Eric really preferred this Chester style.  Hey, you win some, you allow your husband to win some.  And I hate to admit it, but I think he was right.  I love that our sofa has one single “benchseat” cushion so no one gets stuck sitting in the cushion crack, and the leather is definitely the type that only gets better with age.

Along with the sofa came the Article. armchairs and coffee table, and I really love the mix of the black leather and beautiful woodwork in the room.  In my head, I thought I’d be done with the living room seating at that point, but I really underestimated the size of the room.  It’s…huge.  And to be honest, more seating is never a bad thing in my book.

While buying a rug for the space (and I seriously heart the rug that we picked), Eric found another set of chairs that he just couldn’t pass up.  After a full day of unsuccessfully searching consignment shops for a dining table, he sat in one of these swivel chairs and became obsessed.  (Legitimately, the salesperson ended up carrying the chair across the store so that Eric could join our rug conversation while swiveling himself around.  It was…love at first sit.)  Plus our new sales-buddy ended up telling me the secrets of the two best consignment stores in town (two that we of course hadn’t visited yet), so that was a win.

At this point, the room definitely needed a little color, and color we found.  We came across these bold green chairs on consignment and LOVE how they brighten the room.  (These particular chairs can be pretty steep brand new, but if you find a set that’s used and in good condition, it’s so worth it.)  Next up we added a couple of framed wedding photos from Framebridge, some art that we love from Saatchi Art (more on that process later), and a few more decorative accents.

Overall we are loving how the house turned out so far and think it’ll only get better with time as we collect a few more pieces for the walls.  The best things in life take a little time, right?  And I’ll take any excuse to have to spend more time in this room.  (Huge, HUGE thank you to Article., Framebridge, and Saatchi Art for helping to make our vision come alive.)  Hope everyone is having a great week!

xoxo

    The home is beautiful. I love consignment stores. Is this for you only or will it be on Air B and B?

    I really enjoy your blog.

      Thanks so much! Oh I could’ve spent so long in those consignment stores! We don’t plan to rent it out as of now, just want to use it ourselves as much as possible.
