So if you're ready to breathe new life into your space, keep reading for some inspiration and tips on how to choose the perfect table and rug for your home.
When Scott and I first bought our 1950s semi-bungalow, it was meant to be a stop-gap until we found our forever home. Eight years later, we're still happy living here, but that doesn’t change the fact that some of our rooms are in need of a refresh (including our 60 year old kitchen which needs either a miracle or Scott McGillivray).
House Refresh: New Table & Rug
We had already done a lot to the house in our eight years of ownership, but when it comes to older homes there always seems to be something that warrants your attention.
I started with our main floor sitting room which had been missing a coffee table for a while. I had moved an animal print ottoman into the foyer for us to perch on while we put on our shoes which left a gap in the room (fantastic for spontaneous dance parties but challenging when you want to serve snacks and drinks to company).
I knew I wanted a glass table as soon as I spied some in the homes of Style at Home editor, Erin McLaughlin and Sarah Milne of daffodil design (both pictured above). Although, Sarah’s Urban Barn Thilde table is no longer available (it’s been replaced with this), I was able to find a similar one at Structube for quite a bit less.
I like that the table adds a modern edge to the room and helps to showcase the gorgeous patterned rug I found at Home Sense. I love that place. Who doesn't really?
Now that the table and rug are off the list, it's on to these to dos:
Purchase coffee table
, side table, rug (dog friendly!),
drapes & sofa (this one's nice)
Paint door, mailbox & light fixture, switch out house numbers
Find wallpaper & light fixture
Find light fixture & assemble gallery wall
Entire redo including floors, cabinets, countertops & window
Main floor bathroom
Master bedroom and dressing room
New windows, drapes (ordered sample fabrics from Tonic Living)
Find vintage brass bar cart, new art
Paint guest room & add gallery wall to main area
I'm hoping that by posting this list I'll be kept accountable and actually get things done. Because having lots of ideas swimming in my head is not really working out for me.
