Around here...

When we moved into our house we had managed to furnish most of it save from our bare walls and a few pieces of furniture here and there.  We decided to slowly acquire art and the like.  Except for when it comes to my closet, I declare that I am quite the minimalist so I only want to put things up that I absolutely love.

I have plans to put some travel photography of mine on canvas, and then I will finally be able to post photos of the completed family room.  For now, I am excited that our second chair arrived from Crate & Barrel.  The first chair took 5 months and it was an 8 month wait for the second one.  Needless to say, there were lots of headaches, but I am glad they are finally both here:

When this West Elm throw I blogged about here went on a 20% off sale, I ran right to the store to purchase one.  It is incredibly soft and has already been a cozy addition to the room as the weather cools down.

While at West Elm, I discovered that this ottoman was being discontinued so heavily discounted.  I had been waiting to buy one for our very unfinished game room and it just arrived:

I have managed to keep my succulents alive (well, almost all of them), so I decided to add some more to our kitchen.  I picked these up at Ikea:

And I haven't yet shared our guest room--here is a peek:

Those are our latest additions.  Hope everyone is enjoying the week and is ready for their Thanksgiving feasts!


  1. That throw would be one of the best purchases for this winter. So cosy. Have a wonderful day, Kate, and Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  2. Love the gorgeous ikat ottoman! It's always a pleasure taking a glimpse of your beautiful home.

    Wishing you and your family a warm and joyous Thanksgiving!
