Dining Settees

Love the idea of using sofa seating in a dining area.  It’s pleasantly unexpected and helps create a comfortable casual feel:

Happy Valentine’s Day

My hubby and I will be heading out to the movies tonight to watch The Vow -have you seen it yet? Something similar actually happened to us a little over a year ago – my husband had a head injury causing him to lose a few years of memory and didn’t remember the time we dated, got married, etc., – so I’m prepared for it to be a tearjerker!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with love!

Moroccan Rugs

On my wishlist for my home is a Moroccan rug.  They add so much beautiful texture to a space and help create a comfy casual chic vibe.  Especially love the deep pile ones – they look so incredibly soft and wonderful for walking barefoot on.

Still lovin’…

…french cafe bistro chairs…

Love how they look in breakfast nooks, at bar height kitchen counters, and outdoor patios.  On my list of things to integrate into the decor of my home for sure!

See my previous post on french bistro chairs here.
