Hello and welcome 2019! I took a little hiatus on the blog over the holidays, but now I’m ready to share lots of new and awesome content with you guys this year, starting with this lovely little sitting/living room in the Pacific Northwest!
This room and home belong to my little sister Jen, who as you can tell is very stylish in her own right! She is a busy mom of 4 but also manages to make time to write (she is currently a budding children’s book writer!)
Isn’t she cute! And those pups are her mini-schnauzers, Dagny and Ruby. They live right outside of Seattle in an adorable little house on a quiet street. Did I mention she has 4 kids? And they are all under the age of 7 so that lady is BUSY. She still manages to have a very lovely and well put together home that is so uniquely her own. There are plenty of toys and kid’s art but she also manages to combine many different styles + tons of vintage furnishings and decor for a very charming and collected feel.
In the midst of 6 young kids running around, cooking and family time over Thanksgiving last year, I managed to snap a few photos of her front sitting room. I love the moody colors and all those vintage pieces give the room so much character! Jen has always had a very unique (and beautiful) style, drawn to old things with a story. And she can just magically make everything go together! It’s all perfectly eclectic and I am here for it!
In addition to being an amazing mom and human, she is also a very talented writer and is going to be helping me out as a contributor on the blog this year! Very excited about this little partnership!
I’d love to curl up in this room with a good book and a cup of tea any day! Its the perfect mix of cozy and collected! Most of the pieces in this room are vintage, but I rounded up some similar items below:
