With travel put on pause, I’ve been given the time to put my vision to the test. Interior design has never been at the forefront of my mind until I was *made* to shelter in place. What’s a quarantined girl to do?
Shelter in style, of course.
After lots of questions on various pieces in our home, I’m exited to put it all in one place. Drum roll, pleeeaasseee…
*pulls back curtain*
Here’s a list of my favorite new living room accessories!
My pride and joy has finally arrived! I’ve waited months for this Jet Setter piece to make its way over from Hong Kong…and BEHOLD! Artist Jen Lin created it with printed airplanes that are hand-cut and individually pinned to a white canvas. It came framed in blonde wood with an acrylic shadowbox. It’s actually pretty tricky to photograph art well. You should see this piece in person. It’s nothing short of stunning, and I think every jet setter or aviation enthusiast needs it on their wall ASAP.
When Alex and I moved to Manhattan Beach, we were damn-near furnitureless. We drove to every furniture store within a 10 mile radius and finally came out with this mid-century modern navy velvet sofa. The dimensions of the living area are challenging to say the least, but with only two people in the house, this works! It’s so comfy with an ottoman, and I’m not afraid of color.
It’s no secret the large world map rug hits you in the face when you arrive – in the best way, of course. This 5×7 is certainly eye catching, and I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it. It was more or less screaming my name “LESLEYYYY! I’M YOURS!” My favorite thing is that it’s machine washable and spill/stain resistant, so I was really excited to partner with Ruggable here. When Alex comes in from a drone shoot out in the middle of nowhere and drags in mud/sand/grass stains, I just pop it in the washing machine. SO easy.

THIS. This this this! I love the elegance and old-world flair that this amelie floor mirror brings to the room. Because we’re in that stage where we are buying furniture pieces as we go, the antiqued, metallic finish doesn’t necessarily match with the rest of the room…but who cares? Each piece is so unique, and it makes me excited to mix and match at our next house!
Speaking of old-world flair, I live for repurposed old trunks. They make me think I was born in the wrong decade, but at least I have them now. I was shopping for bedding one day and instead, came out with this Ludlow Trunk End Table. Swoooon!
A touch of pink is always welcome in my book. When I found out Alex and I were moving towards the end of last year, I searched high and low for a good pink chair. I came across many styles, shapes and sizes…and then fell in love with this pair of upholstered side chairs!
I’ve always had a tight grip on cozy blankets. They call to me at all hours of the day. I’m not sure why that is other than just an inherent need for security. The blankets here come from Peru, Pottery Barn and Cozy Earth. The Bangla basket was hand-woven in Bangladesh through Ten by Three where artisans receive a Prosperity Wage, which is at least 2.5 times the Fair Trade Wage, helping them provide for their families and invest in their own businesses.
One always needs a coaster to match the furniture. Pink chairs call for pink coasters, right? Right. With this new side table and lots of wood in the house, I was on the hunt for some beautiful coasters so we could protect our new furniture as best as possible. I saw these rose quartz coasters on Etsy and immediately ordered.
