Interior inspiration: a peek into the beautiful home of @acozycasa 👌🏼✨

Here’s a space we’ve hardly shared - it has a long way to go, in need of a coffee table, accent chairs, and accessories. But this lower level family room shows the power of a gallon of white paint and new carpet! Swipe right for the “before”- dark, scary paneling. We painted over the paneling with @benjaminmoore Chantilly Lace. This @shawfloors carpet is clean, cozy, and unexpected. Oh, and remember when we documented our trip to ikea a few weeks ago? We had been struggling to find a piece to fit that space between the window and the wall, under the TV. IKEA had a unit that was the perfect size, to the inch. We spruced it up by adding white metal legs and leather pulls (inspo from @houseonhowellhill). Itching to finish this room!
New blog post! 🏡 our full kitchen reveal with sources is live on the blog! Click the link in my bio to see the before and afters, find out how we came up with the design, and learn how we built our custom hood (inspo from @thegritandpolish )! When we bought this house, this kitchen was dark, small, and dated. We removed walls, added TONS of windows, and reconfigured the entire layout (including appliances, like our integrated dishwasher 😂 see stories for more info on that last minute decision!). This space is still missing some details like curtains, knobs, etc., but 2019 is all about sharing creativity, even when it’s not perfect! Just putting it out there. 💪🏼 I love our new kitchen; I want to spend ALL my time curled up at the dining table with a cup of coffee. ☕️
Are you coming to our bed and bath workshop tomorrow?! Our store designers will teach you how to style and accessorize your bedroom and bathroom spaces and help bring your ideas to life. There will also be signature cocktails and small bites. Visit the link in our bio to learn more.
Do you have a “formal” space in your home? The previous owners used this room as their formal dining room and we’ve reimagined it as a sitting and music room. It’s not formal, and every member of our family (dogs included!) come in here regularly. No wasted rooms in this home! #nelsonmodernreno#mywestelm#sittingroom#piano
Ready to redesign your dream home for 2019
Redesign is about moving and removing. It’s about removing whatever needs to be removed and moving furniture, rugs, lamps and decorations from room to room. The idea is to repurpose most of what you already have. There are some basic tips to follow for a successful redesign project. -Draw your ideal layout -Remember symmetry/balance -Focus and stick to your vision
-Create a color palette -Add texture and layers -Keep it simple And most of all trust yourself! You will surprise yourself, family and friends.... do not forget to share the experience with us with some before and after pictures.....

I normally love running errands and going out on my days off but being almost 36 weeks pregnant now, it’s getting very noticeably more exhausting to do just normal daily activities. So today, I’m taking it easy (although forcing myself to go to a CE tonight), hoping baby stays in there a couple more weeks, and crossing fingers for a smooth, healthy delivery. 1 month to go! #westelm#35weekspregnant#ikea#target#worldmarket#homegoodsfinds
