Living Room Refresh – Planning Stage (Fireplace?)

After 14 years in this house I started to itch for a change in our living room. I think it’s 50% pandemic fatigue and being in the house and 50% just my own personal style changes. Thankfully Aubrey has been patient and encouraging of my need for change, and has been supportive with need for changes. Here is how our living room was as of a few months ago.

As you can see from the top, to the picture below – I took down the gallery wall and, console table.  So far the only thing I have done is repainted the wall and added a new pillow. LOL. The couch and coffee table are staying, as are our built in bookshelves.

I’m debating what to do along this wall, and have been wondering if we could add in a gas fireplace much like the ones below – a full bump out with minimal mantle.

I’ve also torn apart the dining room and TV room so the whole first floor is pretty much being redecorated. 🙂 (More on those rooms later) I have my feelers out to fireplace shops to see if they could suggest a model based on our space. Stay tuned!

New product!! Retro Sticker Books (with peel back pages!)

So I’ve been searching for a retro sticker book forever, with no luck. You know the ones that have pull back pages, so you can protect your awesome collection. After over a year of searching I realized the only way to get one for myself was to have them manufactured. I was sure that my obsession wasn’t limited to me, so I decided to make it myself.

I hoped that I’d find like minded, retro obsessed people who were also looking for a retro style sticker book. Six months of research and development and they FINALLY arrived, and I’m so flipping excited! The sticker book is the perfect place to store your stickers, just like these new ones I also designed inspired by my love of the old school scratch and sniff stickers. 🙂
