New Den = Design ADD

Can someone say design ADD?

Truth is, the longer we are in our home and the closer we get to putting on an addition that will make it a much more permanent residence for the G family that we ever anticipated, the more I realize that I just like a little bit of everything and it’s my house, right?  So with our new den, I’m just going for it.  It will be open to what will be our new expanded & renovated kitchen with an entire wall of french doors leading out to a covered outdoor living room where I’m betting we spend even MORE time.

 This will be the room we spend our most valuable family time in whether that’s just me & G or the pup or future little G’s or whatever.  I want it to be cozy but light & airy.  I want it to be chic but not formal.  I want it to be lodge-y and chinoiserie and a little bit beachy.  I want it all, ya’ll.

So this is where I’m starting?  Thoughts?  Am I crazy?

Casual Den

Here’s what made the list:

  • Big & comfy section – love the English rolled arms
  • Greek key pillows in coral (custom made)
  • Scalamandre pillows (custom made)
  • Audubon flamingo print (gold framed… perhaps paired with a pelican friend)
  • Round, skirted ottoman for foot propping
  • Built-in bar (for shenanigans)

Friday Find

The first Friday Find to officially make The K List is what I believe will be my newest online decor obsession:

Hunter’s Alley

Hunter's Alley

This place is a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind finds for the home.  From beautiful antique and vintage furniture to an endless inventory of brass accessories, this place could turn any house into a home.  Below are some of my favorites.
