This Weekend!!!

Well, the weekend's finally here & I'm just so excited!!! Eddie & Jaithan are in town & I can't wait to meet some of you tomorrow at the flea market!!!! Tonight, Michele from My Notting Hill is having a cocktail party for E & J and I just can't wait to actually meet some of my blogging friends!!! Tomorrow, Eddie & Jaithan are spending the night & I've got some yummy food planned so we'll be sure to do a fun / pretty post. This poor man below (my hero) is OUT!!!! He did such a great job these past few weeks and it's time for some rest --AFTER this weekend of fun that is ;)




Got most of my living room put together & my chairs arrived- yay!!! Here's a quick peek & I promise to post more next week... For now I just put up some flea market paintings on the mantle wall & an old peely mirror I had... The antique crystal chandelier next to the chair is for reading (but isn't hardwired in yet!!!) and we get gorgeous rainbows all over the walls every day.. Christian loves that. The fabric on the chairs is a linen-cotten fabric on the reverse and the rug is a custom wool one that looks so much like sisal but is soft for the little ones...

Anyway, I'll take lots of pictures this weekend & will post next week!!! big hug & I really wish I could meet you all this weekend...

xoxo,

lauren
**UPDATE/ Reader Questions.. I had the rug custom made & bound with a 3 inch linen/ cotton. There are lots of brands that offer this look in wool. I went with one that was 2-toned & ribbed because I really love the look of sisal but wanted the softness of wool for kids!

I love how you used the chandelier as a reading light. I can only imagine how beautiful the room is when it is flooded by crystal rainbows!

Jacci said...

Hi, Lauren :) This is my first visit to your blog and it's great!! Are you seriously hosting Eddie and Jaithan - how awesome is that?! :) You're big time.

I love the chandelier. Are you going to share where you found it? I'm in the market for one above our kitchen table, but I can't spend a fortune (or anything near a fortune) on one.

Thanks for the fun reads and have a blast tomorrow!!!

Haha, I love how dogs can sleep anywhere and make it look like the most comfy spot on earth.
The greenery next to the chair really brings everything to life, great, and that chair...just lovely.

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me which publication you got the Kirby Ellis pictures from? I am in love with the bedroom.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend with Eddie and the others. Cannot wait to hear about it.

LindsB said...

Aw, your husband gets husband of the year award!! Do you think when he is done with your place you could send him my way?

Totally kidding of course, but I just LOVE the picture you shared with us, it is just beautiful!! Everything is coming together so nice. I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend with Eddie and Jaithan, to say I am jealous is an understatement! Take lots of pics for us :) xoxo

Oh no....you killed him. He may just sleep all weekend. Now you won't be able to send him my way. Dayum.

Sounds like fun! Say hello to Eddy and Jaithan for me :)

Hey Lauren,

So fun to meet you last night! I can't believe I've been missing out on your blog this long -- it's fantastic!

<3 Jenn

Victoria said...

I can't wait to see pictures of your house! Hope you have a grand weekend!

I enjoyed your post on Tues. I also struggle with what look I want in my house. I see minimalistic houses and love them but I also like the neat little things that make a house cozy and interesting! Thanks for sharing....I figured you successful design people didn't struggle with things like that. :)

Anne said...

Hi--I'm new to your blog and really enjoying it! I am currently in the market for a rug similar to the one you described in this post. Where did you find it? I've been going back and forth from wool to seagrass...with my little one's knees as a factor in my decision...

micrendle said...

Love the sneak peak! Where do you get the rug that looks like sisal?

sinnlighet said...

Lauren said...

The Kirby Ellis photos are from Country Living and if you go wo Countryliving.com you can google her name & all the pics pop up.

The rug is one I had custom made & bound. There are lots of brands that offer this look in wool. I went with one that was 2-toned & ribbed because I really love the look of sisal but wanted the softness for kids!

Pat said...

Lauren, I am so proud of you. Enjoy reading the messages and hearing the support you have from other bloggers. How I could have used support like this 50 years ago when I had three under three and your GeeDaddy deployed. Oh, well happy for you. Can not wait to hear about your weekend so give me a call when you have a minute to spare. Grandmother
