Do you believe in The law of Attraction?? Let me tell you a quick story about this dresser. I remember pinning this exact dresser on Pinterest a year before and thinking it was so out of my reach. I fell in love with the aesthetics of this dresser the clean lines and overall how timeless this piece looked. Pinterest also introduced me to the world of midcentury. So I went little pin crazy pinning every midcentury furniture that caught my eye and daydreaming of one day owning a Mc piece. So a little backstory on this dresser it belong to a local women mother who recently had moved in with her. She had post it on the local fb garage sale page (back before Fb Market ) you know back when you had to comment “want “ or message the seller in secret so no one can see your offer and not think your low key lowballing the seller cause your cheap lol . Well I remember keeping my eye on this post . No one had commented on it. So a month later it was still available. I decide to make an offer and she said yes but only if I came and got it right away! So I hoped in My Jeep and took off to her house . She was super nice and helped me load it into my car and off I was with this beauty. Y’all this was my very first midcentury piece I had ever owned.Til this day it is one of my favorites ! It was the first piece that started my midcentury collection.I’m so great full for the mother allowing to let this piece go so that some else could enjoy it.I’m not sure what the back story on this piece was or if she inherited it or if she had a love of MC too ? But from what I remember I believe it was one of her belongings she brought to her daughters home.The daughter was remodeling and it just didn’t fit in the space. I know it sounds silly to be great full to have a piece of furniture but I really am .This piece helped me find my decor identity. 5 years later my home is filled with MC pieces that I pinned to my mcm boards long before I knew where I could even find them. .

Power of ARRANGEMENT✔️
Can you believe the new look in this room? And the best part is... we only bought TWO NEW pieces (rug and taller hall console). The rest was simply moving furniture around from other rooms in the home or to a different orientation.
The black hall console was better suited as a side board and now hides away toys for 3 littles🙌🏼.
The sectional was moved to open up the space to the dining room. ▪️
The side tables were a nesting set from the basement that infused some warmth into the space upstairs. ▪️
We moved the clock to anchor the space in that corner but side note: we dropped it when moving it 😫. But this beauty survived!
What room are you wanting to re-arrange??
Here’s a first look of some inspiration we have for the exterior of our new home! I also have a blog post up of more inspiration, homes and plans of what we have come across so far. (Link in BIO🧡) ••••
This home by @newoldcustomhomes caught our eye from the moment we saw it- actually it caught my eye long before we were even considering building! I know you too, may have come across this house before... I think it’s gone viral like 100 times! It’s gorgeous sweeping roof lines are what we love most! But ☝🏻 I do have a few considerations while looking at its exterior. ••••
👉🏻The cedar shake roof is gorgeous but we just can’t justify the maintenance and long-term expense on a roof like this. There are beautiful ways to obtain the look of this house without including an entire cedar shake roof. Actually- we are considering having some form of cedar shake on our house whether it’s just over a dormer or as a siding accent. 🧡🏠 And from a carpenters wife to a friend without a carpenter husband... I have to tell you what Max told me- this roof won’t look this beautiful after weathering... and you will be all tears when you find that out 2 years in. 😭 No joke- it won’t stay that color and it will take days of work and paid labor year after year to keep it looking just OKAY. ••••
👉🏻What we DO love: the Board and Batten siding, the front porch, the windows and large glass front door, the European cottage style, the pitch of the roof and again those beautiful sweeping roof lines 😍! These are a few design elements we want to include in our future home. Will it look just like this house? Probably not! But it’s a great representation of the details we love and want to include in our “smaller version” of this home. My favorite part of this home are the colors- #whitesandwoods Max is rolling his eyes at a white house but I told him it’s not over until the fat lady sings. 😙😉😊
Have you seen this house floating around the social media sphere? What do you think of it? Swipe to see a closer view! 🧡👉🏻
I am itching to do a dramatic wall with our master wall some dark and with dimension 🙈 I’ve been scrolling on Pinterest and saving on insta for days.... what’s your vote? Keep it light and bright or go to the dark side???? 😬
We’ve been looking forward to sharing this living room with you guys for soooo long! We finally shot it yesterday alongside the guest bedrooms at our #leclaircarp project. We captured so many great angles of this grand room but starting it off with the classic straight on view from the kitchen island. That big comfy buttery leather sofa is from RH. Rug, chairs, coffee table and most accessories from @ldshoppe . Builder: @metrichomes 🙌🏻

Happy Friday! How lovely was it again today? The sun does a right one on my productivity levels though; I got a bit of work done in the morning but most of the afternoon was spent basking in the sun in the conservatory, WITH the doors open!
We're off to the seaside tomorrow ♥️ have a lovely weekend!
#NoveroMade: Another project complete! We loved everything about this one - the pop of colour, the herringbone backsplash and that stunning Ledgerstone fireplace 👌🏼 #NoveroHomes#KitchenGoals
I read this quote from @chrislovesjulia on their most recent blog about their A-frame home that was destroyed in a fire.
_ “Don’t wait. I say it often, but it bears repeating now, don’t wait to make memories. Don’t wait until the walls are painted or the holes are patched or the shiny new appliances arrive to make happy memories in your home.” _
They had been working on this home for months and were very intentional about sharing their journey of it. It had me thinking as I was reading what felt like her heart being poured out in this blog, what is this all for? Why are we painting our walls (now ceilings) all white? Why are we buying new appliances, decor for our condo, rugs and light fixtures? Why do we care about the look our our place if we aren’t creating memories in the process?
I know I want to make as many memories in and during the process as much as possible. I want to document the not so fun and frustrating moments in our business. I want to be more intentional about creating our home a place where we want to stay 💕
Oo thank you mid-morning light ✨ PS. I love this vase for that little reservoir at the bottom that keeps the stems standing more upright, which is extra clutch for a ball shaped vase. Appreciated the concerns via stories over bringing it back from Stockholm in one piece 😆 Mission successful, though I left behind other things bc I couldn’t trust they’d make it through baggage claim (everything I wanted to bring back was glass or ceramic, typical).
