Back in August, Scott and I had some BIG news to share -- our home was featured on the West Elm blog, Front + Main! I said it once and I'll say it again -- we truly could not be more honored and can't thank the amazing team at West Elm enough for writing up such a wonderful piece on our small space! With that said, I thought it would be fun to share a few of the photos featured + a few more of our space as it is/was in the summer of 2017. Since moving into our home, I've really enjoyed being able to look back at how it was three months ago, six months ago, a year ago, etc., so for memory sake (and because I just really enjoy sharing our space + hear that a few of you are into seeing it too) here's part 1 in the series -- our updated living room! 

Our living room still remains one of the coziest areas in our home! With three large windows pouring in sunlight on the daily, this area always feels light and bright, but also oh so cozy and warm. These black leather and dark wood chair still stand as focal points in front of two of our large windows, and continue to be some of my favorite purchases to date (the one on the left is from West Elm and the one on the right was a vintage find!). 

Ya'll know I love a good statement photo or print, and this Anthony Burrill piece that we picked up in Portland has been a favorite since we brought it home. I'm also a big fan of the gold Framebridge frame that we ended up going with for this extra special piece! 

Our Article Sven couch was one of the first purchases we made for our new home and over a year later I have to say, we're very happy with it! It's comfy, cozy and pretty to look at! ;)

This West Elm marble and wood side table is a recent purchase that has really helped the space feel whole. I've got my eye on the matching coffee table, so you might be seeing that around here sometime soon. ;)

We'll just call this one the view from the coziest spot in the room! PS that fiddle fig leaf is my pride and joy! He has grown SO much since we moved in last year.

This small media console from Urban Outfitters was a bargain and is still one of my favorite pieces -- it's the perfect size for this space! While this piece is sadly not available anymore, this media console is similar and is definitely a style I could see in our home.  

My love for indigo mudcloth pillows is still going strong! I shared a whole post awhile back on my favorite shops to find the perfect pillows from -- take a peek if you're in the market (or just interested in perusing some pretty pillows). 

Our DIY entryway is still one of my favorite areas to style up! I'm really look forward to decorating it for autumn again this year -- bats + spiders will dawn this space soon! PS this mirror is such a steal for the style + size!

And a year later, I'm still fond of having the "necessities" sprinkled throughout our home -- The Magnolia Journal, fresh flowers and Standard Wax candles!

There you have it -- the full view of our updated living room, summer 2017! I'll be sharing our other spaces + rooms here soon, but in case you can't wait -- get the full scoop on our house here
