Home: My new kitchen look
a funny lil' story about moving in together...
So, when I moved in with Coulter I loved most of the major pieces in the house, with the exception of our dining chairs. They were olive green leather chairs, fabulous in the right home, horrible in our very modernly basic palette home. That being said, I've been dying to change them. It's taken me a while but I decided to have some fun with it. We knew we wanted to add some color to the kitchen, I just had to figure out how. That's when I stumbled across this GORGEOUS inspiration photo one day. It was a photo of a green house that had a little kitchen table with a light green velvet sofa behind it. That was it - I fell in love! So there I was, in love, and thinking to myself, "Why can't I have a sofa on the backside of my kitchen table? People use benches all the time, a couch is just a much cozier bench." So, I went for it. I got the Peacock velvet couch from Joybird, it is this gorgeous blue/green color. Now to find a great way to compliment the colorful couch and subdue it a little.... a woven grey chair. I didn't go completely tame, as you can tell, the fabulous chairs have gold legs! The woven grey also has the tiniest touch of baby blue, which I adore!!!!! All this to say, my kitchen went from being one of the biggest eyesores in my home to my favorite cozy nook! I mean, I am legitimately cooking meals now just so we can eat at home and enjoy this space ;) So, thank you Joybird!!!!

My advice is this: find the one place in your house that you walk by and go "hmmmmm, that could be better" and make it better. Don't wait, do it now. I dragged my feet (literally for a year and a half). But once I actually took the time to figure out what I wanted instead, it was only a matter of weeks to change it. If you're a homebody or work from home, like I do, having your home feel comfortable and cozy is a MUST. Take the time, make the little tweaks. I promise you'll appreciate it far more than you even think you will.
