I am so freaking excited to show you all my furniture for #myhappyhousedreams!!!!! I’ve just really been enjoying taking my time on each room in my new house and really waiting for every *perfect* piece to make its way into our lives. So finally, I’m ready to reveal our living room reveal with the one and only Joybird! If you haven’t heard of Joybird, it’s an AMAZING furniture line - filled with tons of mid century modern furniture made of great quality and even more fun, COLORS!

As soon as I got the house, I got SUPER busy pinning away all of my inspiration for this room. I knew I wanted the room to be light, bright and relaxing so I focused on lots of neutrals with a few “pops” of color - with some pink accents, duh. When I started furniture shopping, I was skewing towards mid-century mod style pieces and am SO THRILLED with how everything turned out.

The Briar leather sofa is the perfect size for the space and more importantly, so comfortable. I can’t wait to sit back, relax, and watch some tv on this sofa. I got the Santiago Camel and Mocha color - and it’s the perfect hue because has some vintage-like accents and fun tapered legs. It looks perfect with my colorful Moroccan Azilal rug I scored on Etsy.

After I had my sofa picked out, I had to think about chairs. I contemplated on what color to get because my rug had so many bright accents. Thankfully, you can get color swatches from Joybird so I got to visually see what colors went best in the space. And HELLLLOOOO! No living room of mine is complete without a pink chair! I picked out the Soto chair and got it in not one, but TWO colors: Key Largo Bubblegum and Oatmeal. They make me SO happy every time I have friends over and are truly talking pieces for all my guests.

What do you all think about the color chairs I selected? My thoughts are that I didn’t want a room that was TOO girly - so I went with one neutral and one girly. I think that the sofa, plus the two Soto chairs truly transform the space!

For my TV, I was pretty limited on where to put it because my living room is fairly small. I didn’t want to mount it against the brick fireplace, so I opted for a more unique method: an easel! It’s functional, unique AND the wood bounces off my Soto chairs. SCORE!!

I also wanted to get a big mirror for the space and when I say Joybird’s Liberty mirror, I was SWOONING. The gold perfectly fits with my lighting brass accents and the size is perfect because it makes my place feel bigger than it actually is. I have it placed on the wall between the livng room and my dining room.

So there it is!! What do you think of my living room reveal? I’ve always had a love of entertaining and now I have the most perfect room to have my best friends and family over for future celebrations and more importantly, memories! Thank you so much to Joybird for making my living room dreams into a reality!

#MyHappyHouseDreams Lighting Reveal with Mitzi

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you may have heard that I bought a house (yay!). And I am transforming it into the home of my DREAMS! I am talking lemon wallpaper, pink refrigerator, vintage clawfoot tub, a swan brass faucet, anddddddd the most AMAZING lighting from Mitzi by Hudson Valley Lighting.

When I first bought the house, I obsessively stalked Pinterest for dreamy light fixtures to replace the current ones in my house. When you stop and think about updating a house, you generally immediately think of appliance updates, new furniture and mayyyybe new bedding - but lighting is one of those things that can be a little bit tricky to buy online because you can’t see/nuzzle/touch/hold it in person. With that being said, I am happy to report, I found THE BEST one that has made all my lighting dreams come true!

When I started looking on their website, I was IMMEDIATELY drawn to their Paige line. It’s whimsical, it’s classic, it’s modern with a hint of vintage, and it’s perfection. Not the mention, the brass detailing is totally swooooon worthy.

For the living room, I knew I wanted a statement piece - so I opted for the two tier chandelier in aged brass. I cannot tell you how beautiful it is in real life! The sconces give it a modern feel, while the brass detail around the bulbs give it an almost too-good-to-be true antique touch.

My next room to update was the dining room. The previous space had a fan here (ew!) and I knew I needed a chandelier to give the dining room area a comfortable - yet elegant - look. To compliment the living room chandelier, I got the matching style for the Paige 6-light chandelier in aged brass.

The size of it is perfect for the centerpiece of the room - and the best part is that the lights come with adjustable stems, so you can find the PERFECT height for all of your chandeliers to fit your unique space.

The next room I had to tackle was the bedroom. My bedroom is a loft-style space with vaulted ceilings, so the lights are actually on the side walls instead of the ceiling (you gotta love old houses, right?!). The previous pendants were black - and really didn’t compliment the space. So, after I painted the walls white, I wanted to continue the aged brass vibes into the bedroom to really have a unified lighting collection. I went for two Paige wall sconce - which are simple, elegant and the best addition to my cozy bedroom. I decided against a large chandelier because I want the focus of my bedroom to be (duh) my bed! And to have lighting serve as accent pieces.

And that’s my lighting update!!! Pulling together the lighting scheme for a house is hard. It can be confusing and oftentimes overwhelming. You can like some pieces individually, but maybe can have a hard time visualizing it as an entire work of art. But with Mitzi, I found the process almost too easy because everything just looks so.dang.good! Plus, their collections make it easier to stay within a cohesive lighting “theme” while still mixing it up with different lighting schemes (like scones, chandeliers, pendants and more).

SOOOOOOO, what do ya’ll think? I hope you love every piece just as much as I do. I can’t wait to make so many memories in this house with my Mitzi fixtures. And a HUGE Mitzi for making all my lighting dreams come true for #myhappyhousedreams!!
