Hello all!!! Spring is just around the corner, and things are certainly starting to look a little bit more “cheery” here at MCG (Making Chaos Graceful). Simple touches of pink/blush popping up around my home has certainly helped with kicking my out of the “Winter Blues”.
This blog has been a dream of mine for a very long time. Despite having a very busy life with kids and work. I have always had a passion with decorating. Currently I live in a Colonial style home with 5 people living in a 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom home with only 1200 square feet. The layout of my home certainly does have some decorating and designing challenges, but I attempt to curate a Graceful functional home. With just about every purchase I make for the home, I always keep 5 things in the back of my mind.
- Is it within budget
- Will it be functional in the space
- Does it offer some sort of storage
- Is it “pretty”
- Will it hold up against the chaos of my children.
This ottoman is an example of checking off all the boxes for budget, storage, functionality, pretty, and it has withstood 2 toddlers running—- crashing—- and jumping from and onto the ottoman (Alll—- the— time)
I was so happy to bring out some of my floral decorations. Along with my DYI wreaths.
I purchased my table/chairs probably about 2 years ago, and I am still loving the style and functionality of the furniture selection. The table is a Pier One find that has certainly checked the boxes for budget friendly and holding up very well against 2 toddlers. The chairs were an Overstock.com find, and I have absolutely loved how they have held against a family of five. It certainly has a rustic vibe, which means, more dents and dings for normal “wear and tear” is welcome (within reason)
Lastly, I was really excited to change and swap some of my bedding around. I went from having “dark and moody” bedding, to a bright white with some more blush accents. I love how airy and bright its made our bedroom.
