THE STATE OF MY LIVING AREA

After my video on "Decor: Arranging a Coffee Table " it seems that the most requested topic I receive after OOTD's has to do with sharing more of my place. My loft is constantly evolving and in particular, what decorates my coffee table. 
I will try my best to share rearrangements and changes with you. 
Alternating trays, books and candles  happens weekly. 
Its so fun finding new ways to display and enjoy my favorite treasures.  I am currently in the process of looking for my dream Chinese style- coffee table but have been discouraged with the nightmare price tags. Unfortunately, my current coffee table is much too small and almost uncomfortable.  Other key pieces are needed as well,  but think its better not to rush into furniture, as it's expensive and I'll likely live with the pieces for years to come. 
So for now, this is the state of my living area <3 
 
Coffee Table: Found on overstock.com. Entertainment center: Ikea. Small wicker lounge chair: Ikea. Silver twig lamp: Z Gallerie. Hide rug: Ikea, though my other hides are from random merchants found around California. Most small decor items are from vintage, found at flea markets. Small white bud vases: Jonathan Adler.

  4. I was contemplating that coffee table myself but since you say it's quite small I probably won't get. Would love more post like this. Your place looks excellent!

  5. I've always loved the idea of living in an old building/loft.... Love it. Can't wait to see what else you do with it.

  6. Love these interior posts. I'm quite partial to your wicker chair with the sheep skin in the background, I'm considering getting one for our living space, but haven't commited yet - like you said, it's good to be sure before you dive in to furniture purchases. The hides are a favourite of mine too but I don't think I can get them to work in our home.

    I love how your loft is so pulled together and all your decor is so deliberate but looks so effortless, clean and unfussy. Such an inspiration.

    I'll add my voice to the chorus begging for a loft tour video ;)
