A couple of weeks ago, I traveled to Connecticut for yet another of my friend Charlotte’s (At Charlotte’s House) Bloggers Heart Habitat projects. This was my fourth time participating in one of these projects and as always it’s a super fun and long day, but most importantly, the experience is extremely rewarding!
*Furniture in this space was generously donated by Raymour & Flanigan.
A little about the family:
A Veteran husband, his wife, and sweet toddler girl, and 1 on the way.
There were 6 spaces furnished in this home all sponsored by Raymour & Flanigan. A living room, kitchen/dining area, guest bedroom, master bedroom, kid’s bedroom, and a partial nursery. Raymour and Flanigan has generously sponsored the last 3 houses that we worked on, and even supported a community effort for my employer, Amos House back in November. Community involvement is a priority for them and we couldn’t be more grateful for their help in creating a home for these deserving families.
Okay, I’ll stop yapping now and get on with the pics:
The space I had to work with was a perfect blank slate: neutral wall color, great laminate flooring and amazing natural lighting.
Usually when we take on these spaces we are provided with measurements, pinterest boards, and/or a wishlist from the homeowners. This time was a bit different, and was a little challenging to say the least. However, we were able to pull together a beautiful home as Raymour & Flanigan has a wide selection of items for any style and budget. We were able to incorporate the sofa that the family wished for, pops of red (which happens to be the home owners favorite color) and create an inviting home perfect for a growing family.
The Living Room:

The couple expressed interest in the Leighton Sectional with Chaise and I can totally see why, it’s super comfortable, perfect for curling up to read a book or lounging all day.
I chose small pops of red by way of pottery/planters and in the throw pillows as not to overwhelm the space. The Gettman coffee table and matching cocktail table were a perfect combination of rustic and modern/contemporary.
The Macie Ivory and gray rug is super soft underfoot, and will be great for floor play once the new baby arrives.
We chose a small tv stand which, thankfully fit perfectly in the space.
The round galvanized shelves were a perfect addition to the stairway. The family can personalize them by adding small pictures, plants or other decorative accessories as they see fit.
Their sweet little girl was a total ham and quickly made friends with my daughter when she realized she could help her climb the stairs to get to the chalkboard, ha!
And for the part where there’s not a dry eye in the room . . . the reveal!
And that was a wrap! A beautiful day helping a family create a home. If you haven’t checked out the other spaces in this home, be sure to click the links below, they are stunning!
