Today I’m linking up with two blogs that I have read for a very, very long time! Mix & Match Mama, as well as, A Little Bit of Everything, today’s link-up is about the coziest spot in our house, which for our family, is the family room. We spend majority of our time in the family room and over the summer bought this big sectional that we love! For style purposes, I would have preferred a really pretty coffee table, but reality is, this big ol’ storage ottoman is functional and provides us with a lot of toy storage!
Decorating the rest of this room has been a slow, but fun process! I love finding things to fill the room little by little, I bought the vases on the wall at Magnolia during a girls trip with my Mom, I love decorating with items that have such a fun and special memory attached to them!
The corner of the couch is our favorite place to cuddle up, it’s funny how each of us claimed our couch “spots!” We love to watch movies, eat popcorn and spend a lot of lazy Friday nights in this very spot.
The Letter Folk letter board was another purchase I made while visiting Magnolia, my girls love to help me change out the letters and it makes for such a fun little touch in this room! As I mentioned, we spend majority of our time in here, as a stay at home Mom, I like to refer to this room as my “office.” I knew we needed a lot of toy storage to keep things as organized as possible, I found this piece at HomeGoods and it stores a lot of our craft supplies, toys and diapers and wipes too.
A little Mom tip, I often rotate toys throughout the rooms in our house. Majority of our toys are in the basement and craft supplies in an upstairs closet, but I bring up different toys/craft supplies now and again to keep things fresh for the girls.
I store majority of Isla’s toys in these soft baskets, making it easy for her to pull things out. In fact, her favorite game to play is, “pull everything out of the baskets and crawl away,” ha!
