French Bistro Chairs in our Kitchen

When we posted some pictures earlier this week of the flowers on the table we got quite a few questions about our new chairs. I am so excited about them. I have eyed this style chair for a while now but the ones I had seen were always kind of lightweight and the backs were often pretty low and I knew neither of those elements would be ideal for us seeing how we regularly have people over and a lot of our guests are quite tall. A month or so ago we were contacted by Arhaus about working together with them on a few posts. I was thrilled. They are one of my favorite stores. I love walking around and admiring all of their gorgeous furniture, lighting and accessories. I love the somewhat dark, masculine feel that the stores have yet the pieces often still have a very elegant feel to them. I was thrilled when I  spotted these chairs. They had the look I was going for but the backs were higher and they have added weight to the bottom to they feel like they have substance and don't feel too lightweight. I especially love the vintage look and finish of the gray color. They are designed after a 1930's French Bistro chair which was fun because the girls are pretty fascinated with all things Paris lately.

Honestly, the only problem with the chairs is that I like them so much I want to use them on the porch too. Haha! I tried them out their one evening but then missed them too much inside so I ended up moving them back in, although I did love them out on the porch too! I should have more images of this space next week.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

The chairs were provided by Arhaus. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A Textured Demijohn Bottle

We are excited to be participating in Décor Steals’ “Décor Ingenuity Event”. Décor Steals sent us this blue textured demijohn jug. It's a beautiful piece and we filled it with fresh-cut branches from the outside and used in two spots in our home. 

I love bringing the outdoors in as much as possible and these flowering branch clippings made the whole house feel like spring was finally here. First I used them on our kitchen table, which was my favorite and where it ultimately ended up:

 I'll have more photos of this room with our new chairs later this week! 

And then I also tried it out in our guest bedroom. 

One of my all time favorite bloggers, Courtney from A French Country Cottage also shared how she used hers and it's gorgeous! 

Be sure to check sign up at Decor Steals. They have a limited number of these available at a great discount. And they are also hosting a giveaway on their Facebook page if you want to head over and enter. They are giving away TWO bottles and TWO $50 Gift Cards! 

Have a fabulous Wednesday!

Some Artwork for Our Gray Guest Room

I've been looking for some artwork for above the bed in this room for a while and I have to say this horse picture was not at all what I was planning on or what I was looking for but every time we went into HomeGoods this winter Lola would want to go to the back and check and see if it was still there. She fell in love with it the first time we saw it and kept begging for us to get it. I have to admit it's pretty rare for my girls to fall in love with something that isn't pink or Elsa-related so I kept pondering it but didn't really think we had a good spot for it. Lola and I measured one of the walls in her room a few times but didn't think it would work right. Finally after a couple of months it was on clearance and marked WAY down so I figured we would at least bring it home and try finding somewhere for it. She was sooooo excited! After trying it in a couple of spots that didn't work we tried it in here. I loved how it looked against the dark gray walls and size worked nicely but I have to admit it throws me a little bit being above the bed and is a little bit bold for me. I think I would like it a little better above a sofa or dresser or something. However, Lola's excitement made it worth it.

For anyone that is new here I thought I would share a quick before shot of the room:
