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.

at this point, i’m 11 short weeks away from welcoming our new baby boy into the world and you can say the nesting has certainly set in.

we were fortunate to have a slow weekend and spent some time in the nursery, getting a few things hung and prepared. as you know by now, i’m a lover of all things neutral and have a certain affinity for things with a storied past.  i’ve been working from this styleboard for some time now to transform his tiny room into something a little throwback, but something that was filled with all things a little boy would love. not just one theme, but a haven of little boy activities – from football to baseball, hunting & fishing, animals to music, wood & iron and all things in between. if he is anything like his mommy & daddy, he will certainly try his hand at a variety of activities and i am hopeful that this will be the perfect place to start him off!

i am simply swooning over the collection from rh baby & child {and don’t even get me started on the great big design book that Restoration Hardware so graciously filled my mailbox with …}. we chose to go with a few pieces from the tate collection, because really who can resist “dove grey?” but my favorite piece of all is the oh-so-vintage crib that we found, you would swear i was made from the pieces of my own iron bed i had growing up! i am also absolutely in love with the matteo bedding at Layla Grace { which i do believe happens to be 20% off currently } – the loomstate vintage linen bedding simply cannot be beat.

more to come as more is done …. but be sure to send any finds or ideas my way!
