Our House in Mollie Makes Magazine

Entryway with lots of natural light

I’ve shared little snippets of our home here and there, but I’ve never really shared our place as a whole. Changing that today though, because our little ATL rental was just featured in the newest issue of Mollie Makes magazine (issue 70).

Amelia shot all of the photos and we just kind of spent the day working through the different areas. It was a really fun day, actually, since it’s rare that anyone comes over to the house anymore.

I did have to do some deep cleaning beforehand though – let’s be real. My house is never as clean as it is in the pictures. But for the most part, I kept everything as I normally have it. Not a whole lot of extra styling, etc. I wanted everything to feel natural and true to how it typically is day to day.

If you’re able to snag a copy of the mag, you can read through all 5 pages (it goes more into depth about the furniture pieces we have in our home, where I found them, funny little stories about certain items, etc). Either way though, here are some of the photos and outtakes…

I’m good! Making a lot of art. Just got back from a trip to L.A. where I soaked up some sun and some new inspiration! Let me know if you ever make it back here. I miss our coffee talks. 🙂

Thanks Melanie!!! How are you? It’s been so long.

Thanks Cyd. 🙂 The bed frame is from DWR. Here’s the link: http://rstyle.me/n/b4jr96mvmw It’s a bit pricey, but worth it (in my opinion)…I think we’ve had it for 3 or 4 years now and it still looks as good as new. 🙂 Hope that helps.

Love it, B! The color palette and mix of artwork is so spot on. Crazy about your bed frame, too. Where does a lady find that? We majorly need to upgrade our bed, but really want to keep it simple since our room is teensy.

Hi Caroline. Our coffee table is a Nelson platform bench from DWR. Here’s the link: http://rstyle.me/n/b4gyydmvmw

Where did you get your coffee table? I’m having a hard time finding one that isn’t 5 ft long and yours looks like the perfect width

What a cozy home!! Love the straight design 🙂

Totally hear you on the tv struggle, Eliza! We don’t have the right type of house for it at the moment, but I like the idea of having a concealed tv (over a fireplace behind a hinged piece of artwork, etc). For now though, I’m right there with you on the struggle. Insert crying emoji here. 🙂

Beautiful House…

You have taste.

Style.

The dog on the bed?

Oh man, the tv struggle is real. My apartment is tiny so having a tv in the living room is non-negotiable, but I have a tv in the bedroom that I keep on the floor hidden behind my curtains when I’m not using it. I wonder if we’ll ever return to the days when tvs were glamorous and encased in excellent furniture.

Eliza

Hi Eliza. Yep, its pointed at artwork. We’ve really gone back and forth on having the tv in the main living space…We’ve moved it out of the space and back in a couple of times now. And at the time of shooting this for the magazine, the tv wasn’t in the space. It’s since come back into the space because its hard to be without a tv in living room for too long, for us at the moment. But it’s a constantly battle between not wanting to change the vibe of the space by having a television and wanting things to be practical. That was a really long answer for your question, but I hope that explains it. 🙂

Aw, thanks Pauline.

Brittni

Did you move your tv or is your sofa really just pointed at some artwork? Either way, gorgeous space!

Eliza

So thoughtfully decorated, I love it.

Pauline

Thanks Corina. 🙂

Brittni

So beautiful and bright! Your house is a true happy place <3

Corina Nika

Brittni

It’s such a beautiful space, I love every detail!
