home progress: entry table/reading nook

entry & reading nook // smitten studioSo, about 9 out of 10 of you mentioned the Shroom, which was, of course, the one I had my eye on for the space. Your extra validation was handy to convince myself and Mr. Samuel that we absolutely NEEDED to go for it ;).  So thanks guys!

In contrast to the light and intricate hanging chair, the table’s clean lines and solid structure grounds the area without competing visually. Now I just need to carve out a little quality magazine time.

  • Love watching your progress. Your home is so amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  • I’m so curious to see if your design style and choices will change it all as you begin to prep for a new baby!

  • I really love it!

  • It turned out wonderfully, as usual! I adore that hanging chair.
