My friend Adrienne sent us this great photo of her favorite part of her home. Adrienne, a librarian and children's literature major has a beautiful sense of what makes this room special.
I love blending classic pieces with distressed, well-loved things. I love color and you should never be afraid of it! I found my coffee table on craigslist and it was ugly, but it had the right dimensions that I was looking for and knew that once it was painted, it would be exactly what I wanted, without shelling out a ton of money. I also think every room should have books. They reveal so much about the people who live in that space. Books are probably my favorite thing in any room.
