Hi friends! Today I’m SO excited to be partnering with Pottery Barn to share some progress on our living space! As I think I mentioned earlier, when we sold the Palm Springs house the buyers purchased some of the furniture from us. It actually worked out pretty well so that we weren’t starting completely from scratch but also didn’t move into our current home with a bunch of items that wouldn’t work! So, as you can see- we have so many of the pieces from our old living room that we’ve been able to make work in this new house!
I’ve been looking for the perfect ways to update the space to make it feel fresh and new- some smaller changes that would make the couch feel different- and I fell head over heels for these Pottery Barn hand woven pillow covers that add so much warmth and coziness to the couch. I was really looking for some texture to play off the vintage fabric of the colorful pillows we brought along. I also added this cable knit throw which is possibly THE SOFTEST THING TO EVER LAY UPON MY BODY. I’m not being dramatic. It’s legitimately softer than kittens and I think I might have to buy another so that Lou and I aren’t wrestling over who gets to snuggle up in it every night. I’m very aware- not a bad problem to have! I have plans for a few last updates to this part of the room for down the road- and replacing the coffee table is at the top of the list. So looking forward to it all coming together the way I imagine and sharing the final product with you when we’re able to make it happen. Click through to see more of the room!
OK, now for the most exciting part! Pottery Barn is hosting a contest for one lucky winner to receive $1000 gift card to shop for their own Spring refresh! For a chance to win, upload a photo to Instagram OR to the Pottery Barn site and hashtag it #mypotterybarn (you may also be featured on the PB Instagram!) You have until June 10th to enter, so hop to it! Oooooh, I so hope it’s one of you who wins!!! I’m also simultaneously very jealous of that winner! GOOD LUCK MY FRIENDS!! xx- Sarah

Love your marriage of old and new, spanish and modern, affordable and expensive. Nicely done!
Thank you so much Diane!!! 🙂
That lamp is just about everything. I would love love if it came in a pewter color!!
Thanks Chelsea! I’d love to see it in a pewter color too! 🙂
The room looks great! Question – is the photo supposed to be of a room that is in need of a Spring refresh or that has been refreshed?
Hi Jenna, thank you! It’s been Spring refreshed! 🙂
What beautiful pieces!
Thank you Brianna!!! 🙂
Your living room looks so good Sarah, and those beautiful windows are just dreamy!
Thank you Kevin!!! 🙂
Hi Sarah! I’ve always loved your living space! One of my absolute favorites! Can you please share where you found those gorgeous copper/gold curtain rods? Thanks so much!
Hi Anna, just responded to your question below!! xx
Where are the curtains and curtain rods from??
Hi Sarah! I would love to tell you but we had such a huge disastrous nightmare with them and the company that sells them that I could never in good faith recommend them or their products. It was THAT bad, and I wouldn’t want anyone to experience something similar. :/ BUT, West Elm has some that are amazing!! http://www.westelm.com/products/linen-cotton-grommet-window-panel-white-h470/?pkey=e%7Ccurtain%2Brod%7C112%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C24%7C%7C2&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules

A piece of eruiotidn unlike any other!
right on the tin “contains massive amounts of rape” with Observe and Report it says on the back “she was askin’ for it”. To have Date Rape just casually included in a major motion picture from an established studio and have it treated in a comical way is just truely bizarre and disgusting.
Are these typically Arabec or Lebonese? I wonder where they originate from. I will have to look up the name. I have been in a serious blogging slump and working to climb out of it… just trying to get my posts caught up and the overdue reading is overwhelming. I have missed you!:)Valerie
These world elites are a lot of fun. There is a dragon named Xariona in Deepholm that a guildie ran across recently. She summoned a handful of us to fight it and we all really enjoyed it. The different mechanics and setting made it refreshing.
Well I guess I don’t have to spend the weekend figuring this one out!
Vanessa,Please feel free to kick it here on the Meltingpot as long as you want! And to answer your question, yes, in a way it hurt that he didn’t see himself as Black like me. Actually it felt more like middle school rejection, by my own kid. I hated to admit that I felt it, but deep down, I did. So, I’m kind of happy that he now realizes that there’s a book on how to be Black and everyone can just sign up
Hey, that’s the greatest! So with ll this brain power AWHFY?
Where is the coffee table from? 😉
B, the coffee table is vintage! But I’ve found them online before- if you do a search for stainless steel coffee table you might find something similar! Good luck! xx
Beautiful! Did I miss it — where is the sofa from? I’ve been looking for something similar!
Never mind — found the link in an earlier post!
Where did you find the link? I have been looking for it. Dying to know where the couch is from.
It’s from Restoration Hardware!
Wow, you’ve done a beautiful job integrating your previous items with new ones and loving the color pallet you’ve chosen.
Thank you so much Laura!!! It’s cozy! Cannot wait to share what I see it looking like after a few small tweaks- it’s gonna be a dream! :)xx
Looks soo good! That Modernhaus chair is on point. I’ve been craving a house update so thanks for sharing ;))
Thanks Denise! Oh, I’m obsessed with the chair- and it’s super comfortable, which was a surprise to me. Happy you liked the update! xx
What is the paint color on the walls?
Sarah, thanks so much for sharing our Juju Hats! They look amazing in your space and we love the way you’ve arranged them!
ahhh! everything is looking so good! can’t wait to visit. xx
There is a little boundary that a few people can understand – how to combine the old stuff that you already have with a new one in a way that your house will look modern, fresh and all that will not be very expensive. Well done! The house looks cozy, modern, welcoming, and clean. 🙂
Love your couch!! Where did you purchase it?
How has no one asked where the wall decor is from?!!.. Those round textured thingys are amazing! I’m sure they aren’t for sale somewhere super easy? Ha.. Thanks! Gorgeous!!
Hi Sarah! Where is the rug from? The link isn’t working – if it’s sold out at etsy, do you know the shop or other sources? I’m looking for one just like that.
your house looks so pretty and this my dream house. Can you please share where you found those gorgeous copper/gold curtain rods?
