Except for the office chairs and prints, this room's furniture is from Ikea. Two Malm desks and three table-tops from the table bar system with Alex storage underneath, fit like customs into this room. The arm chairs are Ektorp Jennylund with Blekinge White slip-covers .

I've purchased all the local nurseries' oleander, boxwood, and lantana so I'm waiting for them to replenish their inventories. This is how it's looking so far.

Above: I've put down extra pavers to keep the grass from growing into the boxwoods. I plan on putting in a border of aged brick to separate the grass from the planters, but I haven't found the right bricks yet.

Building closets

Hers (in progress)


Before I hung the art I was trying out different chairs for this room. Not crazy about these two options, but I like taking photos of different scenarios to look back upon later to remind myself of what I liked and didn't like about the furniture's layout, size, colors/patterns, etc...


  1. Oh gosh, that is one gorgeous home! I've been reading the journey of your home construction from start to finish, and it just blew me away. You guys really did an amazing job. I can't think of anything I don't like. From the floor, the stucco walls, and to the decor and accents you put, they're all in perfect harmony to create a marvel of home building and decorating. Thank you so much for sharing those pictures with us. I wish you all the best!
