Aside from the kitchen stuff I’ve been playing around with lately, I’ve also been working on a more permanent solution for the studio seating area. I’ve been working on it off and on for a while now, but never quite landed on a solution that felt like it would stick.
I think I finally have it together now though (yay) and wanted to share the before and after, in partnership with a site that I am v obsessed with right now – Everything But The House (EBTH).
If you’re not familiar with EBTH already, you’re probably going to want to head over and check it out asap. I’ll wait. 🙂 It’s an online estate sale company where you can shop collections from homes all over the country and I am 100% addicted. Especially since I’ve kind of exhausted the thrift and antique stores around Atlanta lately. It’s one of the best online resources I’ve found for cool, vintage pieces. And they’re always adding new stuff. EBTH has thousands of new items every day, so if you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for today, you might find it tomorrow, and all bids start at $1 (no reserves).
I got SUCH good deals on the pieces I picked up for the studio. Like that hand-knotted antique Persian rug in the after photos… my final winning bid was $326. Shop Persian rugs on EBTH here. I also picked up this set of vintage rattan and rope stools for $95, a seagrass beehive basket for $35 that I’m madly in love with, a Persian wool dog bed for $160, and a striped pink handwoven throw for $2!!!
Here’s a quick refresher for what it looked like before. I took the first photo right before I started moving everything around. And yes, for some reason I had every pillow and blanket I own stacked on the sofa before redecorating. I am a true hoarder at this point. No question.
The couch, chairs, coffee table, paintings, pillows, and that little white light fixture were the pieces I already had at home and around the studio. And then I added all of the EBTH items and a bunch of new plants to round things out.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out. There may be a couple of tweaks still to make (I never feel like anything is completely done), but it feels much more lived in and cozy now, for sure.
What’s your style when it comes to interiors? Do you like to go all one style in a room? Or a more eclectic mix?
