A Gorgeous Livable Library

Happy {ditto} Monday! Ditto posts: learn how to ditto a designer room

This is the first time this has happened to me. When I set aside this room on my Pinterest boards, knowing that I wanted to share it for a ditto, I was shocked to source it and find that it was basically a catalog spread from the design resource shop, Horchow. Usually, I can spot the difference between a home image and an image from an advertisement, but this room was designed so beautifully and thoughtfully, and storied, that I truly could not tell. But, fun for us!! Because it is from an ad, that means the room is totally shop-able. In other words, we really actually CAN ditto this room. Wild.

Today’s Ditto post features a space that is both gorgeous and livable… and so ditto-able. For starters, I would just love to curl up on that sofa. And from there, the list goes on.

{Ditto posts demonstrate a great exercise for you as you continue to develop your own personal style: using your own favorite pictures, and making a quick list of what you actually love about the space. If you study what you love about a space, it helps you to bring what you LOVE into your own home!}

Enjoy this beautiful library space, and the quick “ditto” list of why I love it.

So. Do you love it?:

WHAT I LOVE {What I would ditto!}:

1. Those amazing bookshelves! You might recall when we painted our own library bookshelves blue. I LOVE this top to bottom navy treatment on the shelves.

2. Amazingly styled bookcases {See my top, simple tips for styling a bookcase}. And yes, that means BOOKS!

3. That stinking amazing and wonderful dreamy lovely awesome coffee table. Yum. Lucite + Gold = YES!

4. Once again, I am featuring a room that places a bookshelf directly behind a sofa. It is just that good of an idea.

5. That sectional is wonderful. I love the pale linen against the deep blue shelves. I love the tufting. I love the comfy scale. I would simply like to curl in with a book, thank you very much.

6. Those GORGEOUS sconces. I am in love with the simple, square shape – and in gold, no less. I could not find the source. So, if anybody knows….

7. A huge bouquet of flowers, in monochromatic, that brightens the room and adds a punch of pretty, contrasting color. A hands-down fave of mine. Ditto!!!

8.  Art hung on the bookshelves. I am a fan. I love how it creates a layered, rich look.

9. A CHANDY! In a library! I just LOVE that. Goodbye stuffy library. Hello shell chandelier. Let’s keep things light, shall we?

10. The reason why I truly adore this room? The contrasts, of course. My favorite design technique. Contrasts truly do make the space.

Non-Stop Gold Inspiration

#goldinspiration #glamfarmhouse #preciousmetal #glam

Gold never ceases to inspire me.

I don’t tire of it.

Natural in its pure form, warm in its welcome, and dramatic in its shine… Gold and Glam Farmhouse go perfectly together. You might need a little bit of guts to go for the gold, but it is SO worth the decorating punch.

Enjoy these images of the precious metal that just does not quit. Then pull out all your gold bling, and go all glam on your home.

ditto | a room I love :: cozy couch beautiful
Monday, August 11, 2014 by {darlene}

Don’t you just LOVE this “Cozy Couch Beautiful??”

Happy {ditto} Monday! Ditto posts: learn how to ditto a designer room

Today’s ditto | a room I love post features a sofa that I have lovingly nicknamed, “cozy couch beautiful.” In this family room, designed by Phoebe and James Howard, that gorg sofa definitely steals the show. But, there are plenty of other amazing things packed into this comfy corner that is worthy of loving and crushing.

{Ditto | Room I Love posts demonstrate a great exercise for you as you continue to develop your own personal style: using your own favorite pictures, and making a quick list of what you actually love about the space. If you study what you love about a space, it helps you to bring what you LOVE into your own home!}

Enjoy this stunning space, the “cozy couch beautiful,” and the quick “ditto” list of why I love it.

So. Do you love it?:

{ via House Beautiful }

WHAT I LOVE {What I would ditto!}:

1. That cozy couch beautiful of course? Why so amazing? Four things: 1. velvet,  2. Bold color, 3. tufting,  and 4. A custom fit to fill up the space with cozy.

2. Amazingly styled bookcases {See my top, simple tips for styling a bookcase}. These beautifully designed shelves are a fantastic example of all the tips I shared! I approve ; )

3. That coffee table! I would not be able to go with glass in my home. But lucite would make a stunning alternative for ditto-ing.

4. The design of placing a bookshelf directly behind a sofa. And I mean directly. This is such a cozy approach. And how nice to just grab a book from over your shoulder!

5. The GORGEOUS rug! I am completely in love with its bold presence! {here’s a collection of some of my fave rugs}

6. I wish I could see more, but I am loving that table and chair that is parked right next to the sofa. Board game anyone? Or care to sit and take notes with a fave book?

7. Books. Books. Books. I also love that there are gorgeous ones at the ready on the coffee table. This looks like an amazing place to curl up and read.

8. Real art takes center stage. ALWAYS ditto-worthy.

9. A room is never fully dressed without the monochromatic bunch of flowers that make the room pop alive. And yellow! The PERFECT choice as a contrast to all of the blue. This room would simply not be the same without that yellow bouquet.

Our Living room {reveal-ish} and creating a meaningful home

The Fieldstone Hill Living Room Reveal-ish

{Before you dive into this post: Wouldn’t it be fun to see the before pics, and the before befores? Click here to see!}

* * *

All of my home-sharing lately has featured the rooms of our kiddos, our boys room reveal and the long awaited nursery reveal. It has taken all of our energy, with a bit here and a bit there, to finish those rooms!

Well, we have also been working on our living room – and it has also been VERY bit by bit. I realized that it has been a really long time since I shared anything about this main living space of ours here on the blog. I have been sharing little snippets on Instagram, and I also gave a large clue when I crooned about our sofa.

And I decided that it was high time I shared a pic of our living room here.

No drumroll. Not a zillion awesome angles of our space.

Just one pic, but I think this little pic says a lot. {Besides, I could only take one shot because the rest of the room was completely trashed with toys and diapers. so there}. Introducing the latest reveal-ish of the Fieldstone Hill Living Room.

Vintage Sofa

Paint Color on our vintage coffee table

Wall Paint Color

Pillow Fabric, in berry, with navy cotton piping

Mongolian Wool Pillows

Side Table

Rug, RugsUsa

Cowhide Rug

Sconces

 

 

We still have finishing touches to do… I am looking for the perfect, dreamy drapes, of course. Because…. drama!! I will keep you posted on my progress. And, for more drama, I really need some amazing art. Angela, are you reading this?? I plan on painting some things {this explains why it hasn’t happened yet} for those empty frames. Something black and white and stripy.

So, there you have the reveal-ish! What do you think??

On to other Friday news.

I am sharing some heart-to-heart tips today over at my friend Jenna’s blog, on how to Create a Meaningful Home.

I think that I really did get to the heart of the matter, so I do so hope you will stop by and say hello. Besides, you need to meet Jenna. She is fabulous!!!!!!!
