Sunny Mondays are the Best

Sunshine, warm weather, kids napping, fresh slipcovers on the couches, and suddenly I'm turning on the Zolas and pounding a few new holes into the wall in the living room.  (didn't have a hammer, but it turns out that if you whack a nail hard enough with a tape measure it will lodge itself into the wall).


Nothing like a little sunshine to get me motivated to rearrange a few things around here...



This living room has been an ongoing work in progress over the past four years... and I like the way it's looking these days!  It really feels "me" in there...


Hope you all had a good Monday too!!

Elissa - I love your white couches and have scoured your blog looking for a source. Could you let me know where you got them, and if you're happy with the quality of the cushions? Thank you so much!

I'd literally never leave home if I had your house... and a cup of coffee. A true "happy place." Just stunning, Elissa.

Britty-- our couches are the ikea ektorp with the white slipcovers! We love them. I actually bought our couches second hand and outfitted them with new covers and they are awesome. I'm quite happy with the quality and the fact that I can just throw the covers in the wash. As for the cushions-- I have no complaints. I find the couches quite comfortable.

How often do you have to wash those slip covers with having 3 kids?

Looks blissful!
I have discovered that the heel of some shoes makes a fine hammer, too, when in need of getting some art on the walls. :)

In your kitchen how tall is your ceiling, what height are your cabinets and what size and style is your cabinet trim/molding? It looks fantastic. Thanks!
