Well this was a long time coming! Here’s the progress we’ve made on the bedroom- a few really exciting changes that bring some life to the room. First up, we chose this rug from Lulu & Georgia to bring some coziness and color to the room. We couldn’t be happier with it! And to bring in even more color I found these amazing pillows from Anthropologie and printed out one of Lou’s photos to hang on the wall to tie in all of the colors. We swapped out the nightstands that seemed a bit small for the space (see the before here) with these from a local store and replaced the comforter with a linen duvet cover. It’s seriously luxurious and is holding up so well (we’ve had it since last summer). The poufs, from Overstock, are the perfect spot to throw the pillows when we sleep. It’s become such a sanctuary for us, we couldn’t be happier with it! I’ve been keeping the vases filled with farmers market flowers and grasses that I cut from our yard and a local canyon. Having the freshness in the space makes such a big difference. See below for our dining room update- it’s a pretty exciting one!
Lulu & Georgia is offering readers a 20% discount for the next three days with the code AHOUSEINTHEHILLS20. Happy shopping!
And here it is- our updated dining room! You may remember these shelves from here (so different, right?!) Well we finally found a painter to tackle it and after a minor headache dealing with some really bad customer service the shelves finally made it back to us- white as can be! The dining room is how I’ve pictured it for all of these months and I couldn’t be more excited! It actually looks even better in person, which blows my mind. The bookshelves feel bright and interesting and just so much more appropriate for the space than they ever were when they were brown.
I styled the bookshelves much more minimally than they were before to really highlight some of the pieces we love most. The print is by artist Sanna Annukka and that amazing copper bowl is by the incredible sculpture Alma Allen. I spread these gold urchins throughout to tie it all in and added in a selection of items we foraged from the desert to bring an organic element to it. The photo of the wave on the wall seen below was a gift from our friend Max, available here. I love the contrast of the ocean hanging in our desert home! The shelves also house my most favorite Jonathan Adler vase filled with Eucalyptus, a darling neon vase from this Etsy shop, and this gold rhino.
The last few changes I want to make involve this bird painting. I love it, I do, but it has to go. I want a giant black and white photograph there- Lou and I will make some trips to Joshua Tree to shoot sometime in the coming months and will swap it out. And then I may bring in some books or other objects to style the credenza. I love these candleholders from Crate and Barrel but think the space needs a little bit more. I’m also considering adding a couple plants beside the bookshelf and am still on the hunt for the perfect thing to live on the table. But it’s 95% done and we’re so happy with it! Hope you’ve enjoyed! Can’t wait to share more of the space as we continue our decorating adventures! xx- Sarah
