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!

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!

Moodboard Monday: Cozy + Rustic Living Room

As wonderful as vacations are, they always take you awhile to get back on your feet afterwards.  So today, I thought I’d keep it short and simple and share a little moodboard I put together awhile back.  This was originally for a client, but the overall vibe and color scheme is what you can expect to see in our living room.  I love the combination of sleek + cozy, and the look of this room just makes me want to curl up by a fire.  Except we don’t have a fireplace…yeah, about that…
