What is your favorite area in your home and why?
"Hello MadeByGirl readers this is Lindsay from Pursuit of Style blog! My apartment is very much a work in progress, but this little corner of my living room is one of my favorite spots. If there’s one thing that living in tiny DC apartments has taught me, it’s to focus on surrounding myself only with things I truly love. There’s nothing worse than living in close quarters with something you bought on impulse just to fill the space--been there, done that!
The reason I chose this spot is because it features some of my favorite pieces I’ve collected over the years. The caned barrel chair is part of a pair I found on craigslist. They were the first pieces of furniture I ever had re-upholstered and I felt very grown up at the time. I still love the hot pink linen almost 4 years later!
I bought the large painting this summer at an antique store in my hometown on Cape Cod. It was a splurge at the time and she’s a little kooky (my family loves to make fun) but I knew if I walked away I’d regret it. The artist is German, but I think I was initially drawn to it because it reminds me of one of my favorite Picasso line drawings.
The black console serves as a makeshift bar. I recently painted the inside turquoise which is a fun surprise when you open the doors. The tortoise glass ice bucket (being used as a vase) is another favorite vintage find. It’s equally as pretty holding a bottle of champagne!"
