My home tour / living room and bedroom

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Part two of the home tour continues with my living room and bedroom. Although my living room is just a few steps away from my "office" I did my best to make it feel like its own little space. The gold athena tray from Jayson Home and Garden is one of my favorite things in this room and seems to receive the most attention. I also love my little gallery wall.

Buying a white sofa made me a little nervous, but the slipcover is washable and Buddy knows three important commands.
1. Get off the couch / he is allowed everywhere, but I prefer that he not jump on the cushions after a walk
2. Get on your blanket / said so he will sit on his blanket on the sofa as opposed to my cushions
3. Take your treat to your bed / he now takes his treats directly to his bed to avoid getting crumbs everywhere

I may sound crazy, but these are Buddy's only "rules." Just ask anyone who knows me. He's a pampered little pup.

My bedroom was unfinished until September of last year and will feel truly complete once I have my Camden tufted headboard from Ballard Designs in slate grey or maybe a sandy/off white color. Oh, how I love to pine over these decisions. Let's not forget that it took 16 months and 5 days to paint my entry.

And there you have it. My home tour is complete. I want to thank everyone for the lovely blog posts, tweets, emails and comments. I am so flattered at the wonderful things that have been said about my home. Another thank you to Alaina for doing such a lovely job styling my home. Just look at how perfectly the jewelry is placed in that tray.

  1. I'm so in love with your apartment! It really is perfect. I love the way you've hung your art, the sofa looks so cooshy and inviting, and I just love all the white and little touches of gold and pink. You have such a great eye and style. I truly love the whole space!

  2. Everything looks so cozy! You did a great job on the headboard and I love the barcart. Oh and Buddy is the perfect accessory... :)

  3. SO cheered to hear that that painting was an easy DIY one! I've had it on the brain since I first started seeing these pictures, and I'd really like to recreate my own. Off to see if I can find a tutorial anywhere...

  4. I want to jump into those photos! You are a fantastic designer. Love your colors.

  5. I LOVE your apartment. My apartment is all white and it doesn't look nearly as ill as yours. But then again, I don't wanna be a poser.

  6. After looking at the images the past few days I'm officially in love with your home! You have done such an incredible job with your home design! xo

  7. I can attest to every one of Buddy's commands, except "go see your friend" should be a part of this list! Adore your little apartment!

  8. You really have a dream home! Everything is so perfect and pretty!

  9. I love your home! You have such a great sense of style!

  10. Still loving the neutral palette! So many amazing touches! :)

  11. LOVE your home! You have done a great job creating a clean space of neutrals that is still cozy and inviting.

  12. i lovelovelove your place! how is it i still haven't seen in person. must remedy this soon. xo

  13. love your apartment!! I adore neutrals with grey and with pink in the living and bedroom! Also, that coffee table is amazing it really comes together with the texture of the rug! Love it all!!!

    stop by if you have time!

  14. I love all the white! It looks so clean! I just have one question... how do you keep all the dog hair off everything?

  15. That first shot of your living room is perfect!

  16. Buddy sleeps on his own little blanket on my bed which prevents hair from getting all over everything. He will usually hang out on his bed or the blanket on my sofa during the day.

    And when that fails...lint rollers!

  17. Just gorgeous. What a beautiful, well-appointed, lighter-than-air home you have! Great work!

  18. I have a white slip cover couch too and I adore it. Your place has the best light! I love all the little gold touches too :)

  19. Your home is so gorgeous and pristine! Beautiful!:)

  20. Thank you for sharing! I might just copy you on the DIY art project, love it!


  21. Please come to my home and style a gallery wall for me? Yours is perfect! Love how clean and fresh everything feels. And you got your pouf from eBay? Girl after my own heart!

  22. The Jayson feather dish is totally on my wish list! Also LOVE all of the fashion prints; I'm picking a few out for my place but don't think I can get away with as many or else the boy might catch on!

    P.S. Every girl needs a little best buddy, assistant, roommate!

  23. More Jayson goodies for me to pine over!! I love Buddies little rules & wish I could teach my kittens the same way. They're either stubborn or pretending not to understand!

  24. I absolutely love your apartment, so glad we finally get to see it! It was definitely worth the wait.

    And that feather tray needs to come live with me.

  25. Your home is absolutely stunning! Thanks for giving us a peek into it. Best of luck with The Every Girl, you deserve it!

  26. Oh my gosh---amazing. Beautiful! Perfect! Makes me want to just move out of my house, leave everything and start over! I love it all!


  27. I always love white. Your interior is a perfect example of using the color white. Very lovely!

  28. Completely gorgeous photos and styling! So much inspiration here as I maniacally style my own home for a shoot on Tuesday! Love how crisp, clean yet feminine your style is. You are so so chic!

  29. wow, you have amazing decor taste!! which is no surprise seeing as though you had such an eye for re-doing my blog! maybe you should start up an online interior decorating service now, where i could send you photos of my bedroom disaster and you could tell me how to re-do it!! on top of all of your other projects...ha!! have another glass of wine girl!!

  30. Your home is so beautiful. Soooo glad I found your blog and congrats on all your recent success! xoxox

  31. Everything looks so pretty but what I can't get over is that you got that pouf for $100???? I'm so jealous! I've been eying those in Serena and Lily but they are way more than $100. Great find.

  33. Beautiful! Love the white and gray!


  34. wow! I love your home, especially your desk!!

  35. So beautiful! Love the soft colors! Ohhh, it's all so wonderful!

  36. I love this but I seriously do not know how you do it. I also have a min pin rescue and her little black hairs embed themselves everywhere! My pup isn't allowed on furniture at all...she has enough dog beds and places to cuddle up ... but I still find her hair on the tufts of my bed where I'm constantly having to go to town with a lint roller.

  37. This is amazing! I'm inspired by every detail of your place! Wow! xx


  38. Danielle... This is beautiful! You've done such a great job with your home! I was wondering if you painted the walls white or if they were like that when you moved in. If you painted them, what is the name of the color you used? We are redoing our bedroom and are thinking of painting it white. Thanks :)

  39. this is positively lovely!! where is the non-PB sham from? (or at least i cant find it on PB...)
