Living Room Dreamin’

Happy Friday you guys!  If you’ve been following along on Instagram at all (@kdanielledesign), you know we’ve been quite busy over at the #RaspberryHillHouse.  While the remodel is underway, I’ve been working on picking out the perfect furniture for the main floor living room, and I have a few different idea boards floating around my computer that I wanted to share with you.

For me, the perfect living room must have a few key elements:

  • A comfy, but eye-catching couch or sectional
  • Adequate seating
  • Be light and bright
  • Feel elegant, yet relaxed enough to actually use and live in
  • Have various textures to add depth

I put together this idea board using pieces from Arhaus, and I must say, I’m kind of in love with it.  I just want to jump through my computer screen and dive onto that couch.  I love that it is warm and inviting, yet it still has clean lines and comes across polished.  I debating using one of their sectionals, but ultimately, when I paired the Emory Sofa with the formal wingback chairs, it was just a match made in heaven.  But don’t take my word for you, see for yourself.

So what do you think?  Is this something you’d see in your own living room?  What are your living room must haves?  Leave a comment below and let me know!

I’m Baaack!

Whoa…it’s been awhile!  To be honest I don’t really know where to start, but I can say that it feels SO good to be back.  Between work, remodeling the house, and day to day life, blogging definitely got put on the back burner.  Life is finally slowing down a little bit (err…kind of), so I decided now was as good a time as ever to jump back in.

In March of this year, I decided to quit my full time day job and try my hand at this whole being your own boss thing.  And let me tell you, that is the best decision I have ever made.  Probably one of the scariest, but definitely the best.  The Type A in me wanted to have my new website launched, blog redesigned, and all the pretty details (or not so pretty details) hashed out before jumping into entrepreneur land…BUT, life is messy, and when opportunity knocks, you answer the door.  So bear with me over the next month or so as a lot of changes happen around these parts.  We’re striving for progress, not perfection here folks.

In addition to that crazy life change, I am happy to announce that all of the renovations are D-O-N-E on #theharriethouse, AND on top of that, it has since sold.  Talk about a huuuge stress reliever.  I’ll be sharing all of the before and after pictures this week (and trust me, you want to see that transformation), so…stay tuned.

My Favorite Love Story is Ours

Being absent from blogland for 2+ years leaves you with all of these ideas bouncing around in your head, and while I can’t wait to jump in and share them with you guys, we’re going to keep this post short and sweet.  After all, it is Memorial Day Weekend and you should be out celebrating. :)  See you all back here on Tuesday!

Industrial Chic Lighting

BIG news…we’re making major progress on our kitchen!  Last weekend we reinstalled our new window (after a minor mishap the last go round), and later this week we have an electrician coming to update our electrical service.  Our house only has 60amp service, and for those of you that don’t speak electrical, what that means is when I turn on my blow dryer, the lights flicker.  So we are way too excited to have 200amp service before the week is over.  Here’s to plugging in every power tool we own at the same time!  Kidding.  Kind of.

We ran some wire a while back, but we haven’t quite finished running everything in the kitchen; we just have a few more circuits to run, and we have to install all of our new lighting.  Basically, what this means is I need to figure out what lights we’re getting.  And with that being said, I have two goals for our kitchen island pendants: keep it industrial, and keep it affordable.  So today I thought I’d round up my top 10 industrial pendants, all of which come in under $100.


Modern ceiling lamp – $39

Magical Thinking light bulb lamp – $69

Pendant jewelry – $90

Pendant jewelry – $78

Pendant jewelry – $82

PB Classic Pendant Metal Bell – $99

I think I’m leading towards the Pottery Barn Pendant, but I think I would probably go with chrome instead of black.  Which is your favorite?  Which would you put in our kitchen, or in your own?  Let me know!
