Look I’m Loving: Round Natural Wood Dinning Tables



View More: http://marykonkinphotography.pass.us/monikabananagapoldnavy



As you guys know, I’ve been on the hunt for furniture these past few weeks which is turning into months unfortunately. I’m really trying to not rush the process but it’s so hard when all you want to do is finish decorating!!

Anywho, If you’re just tuning in, you can read about my move uptown here.

After finalizing the layout of my living room, I decided I have enough room to incorporate a small round dinning table and two/or four dinning chairs. Of course I have been browsing Pinterest and my favorite blogs for some inspiration. I’m really loving the look of a round natural wood dinning table. Because I’m working with limited space, I’ve been trying to find a table that’s under 40″ which is surprisingly harder than it looks. Most dinning tables come in various sizes with the most popular sizes being 60″ or 40″ which is great if you have a huge house or kitchen to work with. After browsing some of my favorite retailrs I was so excited to come across Joss and Main’s Round Cordova Dinning Table. It’s the perfect little pedastol table and comes in two different sizes – 30″ and 36″ inches. Plus you can’t beat the price point $205 dollars. Other favorites include the Marie Round Dinning Table  and the Azalea Round Dinning Table. I think what I love most about incorporating natural wood is that you can mix ithe style of chair whether you have a modern or more traditional style.

What do you think? Do you love the look of a natural wood dinning table? You can shop my favorites below! Happy Thursday, ladies and gents. Xo. Lauren

Mad for Plaid

When it comes to the holidays, there’s nothing more I love than plaid. A plaid throw, pillow, duvet cover, shirt, scarf – literally, you name it. If it’s plaid, I want it. It’s safe to say that a traditonal plaid print automatically gets me in the holiday spirit. This classic pattern looks great in almost any setting and with any style. So with the holidays right around the corner, now’s the time to start investing into your plaid decor! I’ve rounded up my top picks when it comes to plaid throws and pillows. What I love most about these home accessories is that they are so easy to swap in during the holidays and after the season is over. Or pending the print / color scheme of the pillow or throw – you can keep them out all year long! A few of my favorites include this Williams-Sonoma throw blanket, this classic tartan plaid pillow and omg, these black watch plaid vintage pillows – so good!
