This bookcase (Ikea Besta) serves to divide the big room into two areas (living/ dining.) And to keep the two rooms connected, I kept the rugs the same pattern and size.
Our one bathroom is the door right behind the couch. The artwork above the couch is E’s great uncle Stan, who was a wonderful artist, and we are lucky to have some of his work featured in our house.
Here is the big ol’ couch. It is actually an apartment sized York Sofa from Room & Board but is about seven years old. It has definitely seen a fair bit of use (hence the cushions never staying perfectly fluffy!)
As I mentioned above, I just did some easy DIY art and framed them in some Ikea Ribba frames. I will do a full post on the process later with my inspiration images and the process!
This little basket is full of B’s books. As I mentioned here, with living in a small space we have to keep her toys to a minimum. And they all have to have a place! We have been so lucky to have been given tons of hand-me-down books from our neighbors, they are B’s favorites!
