{ New after holiday decor in the dining & living room!! }

You all know how I feel about the month of January...Well this year I decided to change both the kitchen & the dining room up after all the Christmas decor was put away! We finally decided that we needed/wanted to switch out the black square IKEA table for our wooden round country one. I didn't think I was going to like it very much,but once we got in & I decorated it surprisingly seems to make the room larger even with being a tad bit longer! We also swapped our cream rolling cart for a more industrial/rustic shelf- which I LOVE!!

 Cozy cottage ..& thanks to my lovely mum for making that cute tan checkered bow on the wreath!!
Fun little fact..that wood center piece is part of the new piece that we { Mr. Markie } took out to accommodate the trash bin & the doggies water bowl!!
  
I love these carved wood fruit pieces { Thrift} & the white roses my dear grams made for our first home { they light up } !!

Trying to figure out what color to paint the top of the table or base, but not both..something light & easy to distress- stay tuned!

This piece I'm in love with right now,& bonus it was a trash find!
Still debating if I'll chalk paint it or leave it..who knows with me! Suggestions welcome!!

In the living room we swapped our old leather sectional for an IKEA Ektorp sectional & ottoman! I was concerned with having two dogs and how a fabric sectional would hold up compared to leather..lets just say I'm pleasantly surprised..so far! I love that you can switch & wash the covers so easily & the different  colors/fabrics are nice to change with the season etc..


The cream burlap curtains are from Target & the Striped white & grey/blue-y ones are from IKEA! 

I can't explain the look I was going for other then the laid back cozy pajama { Ha-Ha } look with cooler wintery tones..browns,blues,greys & whites !





Cozy little corner to read some magazines  & by the way that IKEA candle smells delicious  like vanilla & babies hehe!

Thinking about adding some cream chalk paint to the detail on this little cabinet sometime very soon ;) !


Hope you have enjoyed our new winter living room & kitchen look!!! Wishing you all a very fun & decorative start to the new year!
