Winter Living Room & Kitchen

After all of the color and clutter of the holidays, I always find myself enjoying keeping things neutral for the winter months. Everything feels fresh and cozy for hibernating season.
I decided to flip flop our living and dining rooms. Again. I get bored with furniture arrangements and sometimes it isn't necessarily about what works better, but just changing things up! I also got out my wide angle lens for the photos in this post so I could share more of what the space looks like as a whole.
We installed the DIY pot rack shortly before decorating for the holidays, so it is fun having that new item to style. I have some gift cards from Christmas that I plan to use on copper pots to add to the pot rack.
I am considering a new location for our DIY baking company sign. The lantern chandelier in this location blocks it a bit here.
The pot rack started as a more decorative item, but I have to say it has proven to be very useful. I keep items like our colander, grater and measuring spoons just above the island and I don't have to dig through any drawers to find what I need.
Somehow, this fiddle leaf fig is still alive and growing. When I decorated for fall, I relegated it to my son's room because he was away at college. I *think* he may have watered it a time or two when he came home. And other than a few brown edges on the leaves, it is going strong. So if you're like me and don't gave much of a green thumb, you might want to try your hand at one of these.
Thanks for stopping by today! We have been enjoying some warmer temperatures and I am getting very excited for spring, even though it is still pretty far out. In the meantime, I will try to embrace the comforts of this quieter season.

  3. Your home looks great! I like your new barstools. I just bought some like yours as well. Can I ask where you found the cushions for them?

    1. Thanks! The cushions are from Christmas Tree Shops. Not sure if you have one locally, but I purchased them in store.

  9. I love your home, Courtney! I was just noticing your beautiful floors. Are those real wood or laminate? How do they hold up with the dogs? I have a golden and need new flooring. On the lookout for good ideas. I like the color of yours and how they look like "planks." Thanks!

    1. Thanks Marty! Our floors are wood and they have held up fairly well with our 2 dogs (and 3 boys!). They are a distressed pre-finished wide plank oak by Shaw. We purchased them at Lowes about 8 years ago but I haven't been able to find a source for them for many years, unfortunately.
