The Way YOU Are- Starfish and Sundresses

I was going to be patient and do one post per week of this series but I can already tell that that is going to be very hard! Okay so seriously just one more for this week okay?!!!

Today we are getting a peek inside Lindsay's home from Starfish and Sundresses. I love Lindsay and her blog so much, her taste is always right on and she never ceases to inspire me!

Lindsay's favorite spot.....

I like to think of every room in our house as a bit of a work in progress but the living room is definitely one of the spots I'm most happy with. It's actually undergone quite the transformation since we've moved and I think the sweat equity we put in is part of the reason I love it so much. The previous owner had painted all of the walls bright yellow with the exception of the fireplace wall which was painted chocolate brown. It literally looked like we were living in a rotten banana! Luckily, there are few things a fresh coat of paint can't improve so we got out our rollers and went to work.

Now the living room is one of our favorite spots to hang out and I'm very happy with how it's evolved. A few favorites in the room include beach prints by Christian Chaize, a lucite coffee table I scored off Craigslist, and a faux bamboo mirror my mom snagged at a local antique mall. Another aspect I love is the fire place. From the second I saw it I was daydreaming about roaring fires and cups of hot chocolate over flowing with marshmellows. Did I mention this was in March? Needless to say, it was an easy sell and I'm sure I'll be loving my favorite spot even more once the cooler weather hits DC.

A big thank you to Leah for inviting me to share my favorite space. I hope you've enjoyed a little peek!

Love how she made painted the fireplace wall a different colour from the rest of the wall, creates a focal wall but still so soft! And I love love the ikat pillows. Beautiful spot..

LOVE the couch pillows! And honestly, a fireplace is so much cozier by candlelight, rather than a roaring blaze ;)
