I’m finally staying in one place for more than a year – hooray! And with no dreaded move looming overhead I had a bit more time (& a great excuse) for a style upgrade. Although I love going out, socializing and enjoying my spectacular city, I am a homebody at heart. It’s important to me that my space is comfy, functional and filled with pieces that I love.
I had a major moment when I saw this gorgeous chevron pillow at Room & Board. The second we locked eyes I knew it was over. This is a relationship I could build my whole room around. To keep my chevron print company I combed through fabric samples until I found two beauties that could play a supporting role gracefully.
My pillows and my back need something fabulous to lean on. I choose a slightly over-sized Heady Bed in rich chocolate faux leather to anchor my room. To balance out the brilliance at the head of the bed and soften the crisp white of my duvet I choose a throw that can actually get me excited for the cold Chi-town winters.I fell in love with the story and texture of kuba cloths and combed Ebay for just the right patterns. I added a pop of color and some whimsy with my ‘love’ poster from Made by Girl.
Leaning up against my cool, cozy headboard surrounded by my saucy throw pillows, wrapped up in double G’s, sipping a hot lemon water (or perhaps a healthy glass of red) with a good book in hand… that’s where I’ll be tonight.
