We have lived in our Los Angeles home for about 5 years now and other then a few tweaks, and a few additions of collected things here and there, everything has remained basically the same since we first decorated it. Most of the items in our house we bought or made because we loved them and/or the story behind them. Our sofa however, we grew to hate and seeing our home through the lens while shooting it for the Design Sponge feature kinda made me want to update a few things.
The sofa didn’t look terrible (if you don’t mind an obnoxiously large sofa with boxy cushions that never really laid straight) but the worst part was that is was insanely uncomfortable. I mean really, how am I supposed to watch a Bachelor marathon if I can’t get cozy? The dogs seemed to have shared in our disdain and wanted to make that clear by chewing holes in the cushions in attempt to pull out all of the stuffing. You can see the old sofa above (pre canine treatment) and also in our design sponge home tour.
Well, we finally gave that couch the boot and welcomed in this new blue beauty from to H.D. Buttercup.
I now only have room for one chair and I feel bad splitting the two yellow ones up (shown at the top) so I am selling them both. If you are interested and live in the LA area (local pick-up only) shoot me an email. They are from Urban Outfitters (& currently still available there) and in like-new condition. I’m asking $250 a piece or $450 for the pair. Let’s find these guys a good home. :)

I am thrilled to be featured over on Eva Black’s blog today in her Spaces column. Eva is such a talented lady and I also happen to have major hair envy over hers, sigh… but that is totally off subject. ;)
Here are a few images that weren’t included in the feature of my home studio (where I will be working a heck of a lot more now) and how my ever changing chalkboard wall/vertical work surface is looking at the moment.
Check out the interview and see the rest of my studio space on Eva’s blog.
Thanks again Eva!

I have spent so much time posting about our cabin that I realized I have never shared any of our home! So, here are a few of my favorite shots of our space and head over to Design*Sponge to see the full tour.
