when we first got married, there were certainly some things we each had to part with to accommodate living together in a civil manner. i admittedly had more of a girly, shabby chic vibe going in my single days and had many pieces remaining that just didn’t work. and the mister had a few things left over from his college days, most of which celebrated sports in some form or fashion.

and so we compromised on several things and did a great job in creating a home that truly reflects the personal style of us both together. but still, for some time now we had been sitting upon a living room filled with big, blue couches. we finally made a switch after simply fawning over the restoration hardware collection for some time now {that design book got me, right?} and i am just loving our neutral, linen & leather living room.

it’s cozy and liveable, with some of our favorite vintage finds – a big storage basket as our coffee table and a little old safe as an end table – both of which we found while popping into different antique stores over the years. it is so nice to have a room in which we spend most of our time that is a perfect reflection of living.
