One Room Challenge Week Four: Couch Dreams Coming True

ORC week 4

Last week I shared with you our design board for the living room, featuring a blue couch I was very hopeful of finding. This week I’m sharing with you the couch of my freaking dreams.

If you saw my instagram stories, you know getting this couch was no simple feat. I saw online that this couch was at Final Cut, and it was exactly what I had been envisioning in my head. I was determined to make it mine, and began scheming how to get myself, a truck, trailer, and baby all down to Augusta, GA to bring this bad boy home. Since I am home a few days a week, I wanted to utilize my time so I was ready to pack up and go.

The problem was that neither of our cars have a hitch, so I had to hunt down a car to borrow. I’d also have to rent a trailer, which I had never driven before. But I’ve always been convinced, when there’s a will there’s a way.

Well, there wasn’t a way… Scofield (and my mom, and his mom, and my dad, and his dad) felt very poorly about me loading up such precious cargo (the baby, not the couch ;) by myself with a trailer and windy roads. I couldn’t blame them. So we were able to work it out to where Scofield and I would drive down on his day off and we crossed our fingers the couch would still be available.

When we got to Final Cut the couch had on piece of paper on it that said, “reserved.” Nooooo. I was heartbroken. But not ready to give up yet. We looked around for other similar minty blue couches, and found a couple, but I felt like I would be settling. The store was closing in less than an hour, so Scofield had the bright idea of waiting it out. We hadn’t seen anyone hanging out around the couch, so we thought maybe they wouldn’t show to pick it up. And BINGO! Closing time rolled around and said couch claimers were nowhere to be found. The couch was ours!! So we loaded her up and brought her to her forever home.

She is everything I had dreamed of and more, and adds so much to our living room. I keep finding myself thinking, “what was life before you.” I love her.

Hayden and I have a lot on the to do list this week, including installing a light fixture, picking out lamps, attempting a DIY project, and giving our fireplace a little refresh. Be sure to check back next Thursday to see more of our progress, and follow along with the other ORC participants, here!

This dress is currently on sale, so hurry over to the Mint Julep Boutique and snag one for yourself! (note: it looks like the large is the only one in stock, but I am actually in a large here, even though I’m usually a small, and love the more flowy fit).

When you sign up for their email list, you can also get $10 off your first order, making clothing that’s already at great prices, even better!! Also (not done yet, you guys) I’m giving away a $25 gift card to the Mint Julep Boutique over on instagram. Deals galore, am I right!? So be sure to pop over to instagram and enter! The winner will be announced on Wednesday.

I styled this dress with my favorite wedges, a classic brown bag, and a pop of blue with this Larimar ring. Let’s also talk about this bag for a second. Also obsessed. You guys … it’s so comfortable, holds oodles of stuff, and so well made. It will certainly also be a summer staple.

Okay, done blabbing. I hope you had a great weekend!!

Easter in Pictures | Love Lola

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! I look forward to this weekend every year, and the joy and hope that it brings. It’s funny how having a baby makes you look at things, like holidays, a lot differently. I found myself super conflicted over the easter bunny this year, and we ended up not doing an easter basket. In the coming years we’ll probably bring back the easter basket, but I don’t see the “easter bunny” ever delivering it in our house ;). We did do an egg hunt, and Piper had so much fun searching for eggs. I was so proud of how well she did! They were pretty much all laying out in the open, but she knew to pick them up and put them in the basket. Can she stay 17 months old forever!? I could eat her.

I also couldn’t get over her in her little easter dress. Looking back at these pictures, she is the subject in every single one, ha. So if you aren’t her grandmother or aunt, you might not find this post super intriguing, but a few pictures from Easter anyway…

One Room Challenge: Living Room Week Three

One Room Challenge - Bohemian Modern Living Room

It’s week three of the one room challenge, and this week I’m feeling the crunch! This week I’m sharing with you guys one of my many mood boards for our living room. I have gone back and forth back and forth so many times on the couch and the art work in here, that it’s all starting to blur together. If there’s one thing that designing a room teaches me, it’s that I am overwhelmingly indecisive…maybe don’t ask Hayden about this ;).

This week I had the most fabulous meeting with Hayden, and we moved things around, shopped my house, and chatted all things interior design. What was probably suppose to be a one hour morning meeting went well into the afternoon. I joke with Hayden that after working with me every other client will feel like a piece of cake.

If there’s anything I’ve learned from Hayden so far, it’s that you can mix and match design styles and colors to your hearts content. She has really helped me marry all of my different design spouses.  I do feel like I’ve learned, though, that out of all the design styles, I bleed bohemian modern. Give me all the modern all day every day, but give me those boho vibes to warm it up. I also really love pink and blue. My wedding was pink and blue, Piper’s nursery is pink and blue, and my living room is going to be…..you guessed it, pink and blue!

Anywho, I have a lot planned for this week and can’t wait to share more next week! Be sure to check out all of the other participant’s progress in the One Room Challenge, here!
