Home Sweet Home


Welcome, welcome to our home! That itchy scratchy need to spruce things up I was talking about the other day took effect. 

We purchased these bookshelves to create some balance and storage by our media console, and I can finally put my favorite trinkets and books on display (and the minimal look and price of the things cannot be beat!). 

It's clearly apparent I've been making pillows like a mad woman, and they added the right amount of pop, color and print to the white walls and neutral furniture. 

I finally perfected my little corner atelier, if you will. The bright pink peony graphic gives a girly pack of punch (much to Matt's dismay). 

And that beautimus throw on the couch? I scored that at a local vintage store called Seaweed & Gravel. You guys, that place is the stuff vintage loving dreams are made of. If you live in the San Diego area or are ever in Encinitas, you must go there.

The best thing adorning this living room? That little fur ball, Benny, also known as king of the couch.

Those 3 books are staples in our home. Specifically, Brown Bear Brown Bear. I can recite it word for word, without looking at the pages. Baby Reef has learned to say, "dog" "duck" and "cat" as a result. :) Lovely home, btw. xoxo

It's a love/hate relationship. Benny is blind so he is happy as long as Luke keeps his distance, which he is pretty good about most of the time :)

I love your home! I have that exact copy of "Emma" (though I'm sure I'm hardly original) and am loving the peony print. :)
