Ali Luvs Home Tour – Family Room

look like a picture framePopping this post up to the top of my blog feed today for those wanting family room deets! And I promised you guys on Insta stories that I would share my secret to keeping my couch white! And honestly my secret is putting sheets over it! Ha! Look, when the kids are a little older maybe I’ll feel more comfortable taking the sheets off. But for now with baby spit up everywhere and with Molly wanting to test her boundaries, I’d rather keep my couch safe! Ha! And I would do this even if it wasn’t white. Just to keep the fabric clean. When guests come over we just take it off and it looks squeaky clean! And the sheets don’t bother me at all. I don’t even notice them anymore. If you don’t want to use sheets then just have a few throw blanket on your couch and use those instead. We use the white sheets because they’re easier to tuck in and stay in place. But if you don’t want people seeing sheets when they come over and if you don’t want to take them off every time, that I would just use throw blankets and it works the same! That way my couch stays protected when my kids are well being kids! But then looks really nice when we have guests come over. And I know some of you were going to say just don’t have a white couch. But I love my white couch and I wouldn’t change a thing! Ha!

Original blog post with furniture details below!

Welcome to our home! Well, kind of. I’ve been telling you guys for a while that I am going to do a home tour series on my blog, so I’m very excited that the series officially starts today! Yay! It would be way too long of a post to show you every room and explain every detail at once, so I’m gonna break it out into a series of 7 posts and write about one room every week. We are really proud of this home and excited to share with all of you.

I’ve decided to start off the series with our family room since it’s really the heart of our home and where we spend the majority of our time. Most people say the kitchen is the heart of the home but let’s face it, when you have a newborn and a two-year-old you’re not spending a ton of time cooking, so most of my time is spent on my couch nursing my son and trying to distract/occupy my daughter. Ha! So I figured, why not invite you all into our home by showing you the space where we are really learning to become a family of four.

Veronica Valencia

Before I get into all the details, I want to thank one person. Our designer Veronica Valencia! We truly couldn’t have done any of this without her! You guys know that I love fashion and putting outfits together, but when it comes to putting together furniture in a room I have no idea what I’m doing! And that’s the truth! Can I design a room? Yeah, maybe one room if I have a ton of time and the ability to buy things and send them back when they don’t work. But it takes a true skill set to see a whole home and be able to furnish it from top to bottom and really see a cohesive vision throughout the space. And that’s exactly what Veronica did for us! There is definitely a cohesive theme as you go throughout the house and you’ll see that in the weeks to come as we share each space. Designing this home with Veronica has been a truly special experience since not only did I have give birth to Riley in that time, but she and her husband Kris found out they were pregnant with their first little one! I don’t know, something about building and putting together a space where our family will grow while we’re both quite literally growing our own families feels poetic to me. And as any woman out there who has been pregnant knows, the first trimester can be no fun with all that morning sickness and exhaustion. And the third trimester, especially the last 4 weeks is, well… I don’t even need to tell you because we all know how that is! Ha! So the fact that we finished designing this house while we were each experiencing these things speaks volumes to our relationship and Veronica’s work ethic. I can’t thank her enough. We get to raise our children in the most beautiful home thanks to her creativity, vision and hard work. Oh and I quickly mentioned her husband Kris above and he was also a huge part of putting this home together. He would be here helping us measure windows for window treatments, hanging things as needed, moving furniture and so much more. And really Kris and Veronica are a team both in marriage and in business! So thank you both!

OK, now let’s talk about the space! I want to say this is one of my favorite rooms in the house but I know I’m just gonna end up saying that about every single room! That’s the best part about our house! I literally can’t pick a favorite room because every room is my favorite room!

I really wanted the space to feel cozy and inviting. But, at the same time I wanted a white couch. Ha! And it’s kind of hard to make a space feel that way when a white couch kind of just screams, “don’t come near me with food, wine or anything at all!”  But I think that Veronica and I nailed it when we chose this couch and decorated around it for everything to feel more cozy.

Our Couch

First let me talk about the fabric on the couch. This sectional can be customized on Wayfair.com and you can choose from a variety of fabrics (P.S. I’m going to talk more about Wayfair in a minute because they absolutely saved my sanity when we were designing this house). I ended up ordering a few samples before we made a decision so I could see what they looked like in person. In the end we chose the Bevin Natural fabric. If you’re wanting a white couch in your house but worried about it looking dirty over time, I’m telling you this is the perfect fabric! It’s hard for me to explain in words without showing you in person, but it’s a textured fabric that has little bits of natural looking fibers and specs of brown in it. They are so subtle that you can barely see them (so it looks super white) but it makes a huge difference when it comes to how the couch looks after getting a little bit of dirt on it. For example, a purely white couch would look dirty the second our dog Owen jumped up on it. Dogs have dirty paws – that’s just the way it is. If Owen is outside for a while we usually wipe his paws when he comes inside, but at the end of the day he still going to track dirt around. But because of the textured fabric and little bits of brown, the dirt just doesn’t show up – if it’s there at all! I am absolutely obsessed with this couch and the fabric! So much so that we did another couch in our formal living room with the exact same fabric. Which you’ll see at a later date when I share that room on the blog. If you’re at all considering a white couch you should totally order the Bevin Natural fabric from Wayfair to see it in your own home. The samples are free so there’s really nothing to lose!

Behind the couch we have a console table/buffet table. I really love it there because I feel like it gives nice division between the kitchen area and the family room area. I don’t know if you guys can tell from these pictures but our kitchen and family room are really just one big open space. So the console table helps divide the two spaces. Also, when I’m sitting on the couch nursing Riley, it’s easier for me to reach behind me to grab a glass of water instead of reaching down to the coffee table. And any nursing moms out there know that you feel like a camel in desperate need of water when you’re nursing a baby. Ha! It’s comical really. The second Riley latches onto me I feel like I am instantly extremely dehydrated and need water ASAP. I know many of you can totally relate to what I’m saying!

Wayfair

OK, back to design. (I could get sidetracked talking about breastfeeding for hours!) Let me talk a second about Wayfair. You’re going to notice as I write this that we ordered almost everything from their website. You know their jingle “Wayfair you’ve got just what I need!” Well I legitimately found myself singing that while on my computer looking for items for the house! Ha! I’m not even kidding. I chuckle when I think about it now because I was just so giddy over all the amazing stuff they have. Plus when you’re trying to furnish an entire 5-bedroom house all at once, it makes it so much easier when you can find everything in one place. Plus they have idea boards that you can create where it was easy for me and Veronica to favorite items that went on those idea boards and then share them with each other so we could collaborate on what items she was loving and what items I was loving. Plus it was just a great way to see all the items on one page so I could see if they worked together. Because Veronica is a designer it’s easy for her to know that two items will look good in a room together, but my mind just doesn’t work that way. I need to see the items next to each other to decide whether or not I like them together.

So anyway, you’ll see that the majority of everything in our house came from Wayfair.com. Which I’m really happy to share with you guys because that will make it easy for any of you to buy multiple items, if you’re loving them, since they all came from the same place!

Rug

We decided to go with a darker blue rug since we went with the white couch. And then we wouldn’t have to be as concerned about little spills and footprints on the rug. We had all white rugs in our last house and they got dirty pretty quickly in high traffic areas. So in this house, since the family room will be a high traffic area, we decided to go with a darker rug. Don’t get me wrong, there are white rugs in other spaces in our house but they are in areas that we don’t spend nearly as much time in. I believe the size of our rug is 10 x 14. And for that big of a size the price is so good!

Our TV is Uh-mazing! It’s meant to look like a picture frame on your wall but it actually a TV. I love it and make the space so much prettier. I highly recommend it! You can choose what color frame you want to get with it. I got white of course 😉

Because the couch is white and really all the walls are white, Veronica and I wanted the other pieces of furniture to contrast off the white. So we went with woodtones for our coffee table, square side table and round side table. All of which are from Wayfair. Unfortunately the coffee table is no longer in stock. But I bet you can find one just like it. The brands that made it can be found HERE.

The Built-In’s

Now let’s talk a little bit about our built-ins. Veronica was an absolute lifesaver when choosing items to put in our built-ins around the TV. I was absolutely clueless as to what to put in there to make it look designed and not cluttered. Veronica quickly taught me that the key to designing built-ins like this is to choose larger items over smaller items. That’s just something I never would’ve realized or thought of! And after she told me that, I was actually able to help out by researching and picking out some of the items myself.

Decorative Books

Veronica also told me that one of the key items when decorating a space like this is decorative books! Another thing I never would’ve thought of. But man did they make such a difference! We ended up getting ours from an Etsy shop called Book Bundle Lane and they are perfect. Check out their shop HERE, and you’ll see that they have all different kinds of decorative books. For our family room, we mostly went with all white and all navy books for the built-ins. But we sprinkled in some neutral colored books with French writing on them which I just think are so pretty! We also got these brick book ends that are great for not only using as bookends, but we left ours tied together with the twine as a decorative piece. The quality of the books is so great and you really can’t beat the prices! We got these blush/pink books with French script on them for Molly’s room, so check them out for a sneak peek of what you can expect in her room!

Instead of talking about every piece we ordered for our built-ins I figured I would just put thumbnail versions of some of the items below. Click on the item to shop it!

I absolutely want to talk about the oversized table lamps in the room behind the couch. Veronica chose these lamps and when they arrived to the house I was honestly shocked at how big they were! My initial reaction was “these are way too big! They won’t work!”  But once we had them set up in the home I could not love them more! Again, this is just one of the many reasons that Veronica is such an incredible designer. She’s able to pick things that I don’t even know I like until I see them in the house! If I was walking in the store and saw the lamps I honestly would’ve walked right by them and now they are two of my favorite items in the entire house! They’re really great if you have a large space or high ceilings. The ceilings in our house are 13 feet which is really high and it can be difficult to find items that don’t look dwarfed in the space. These table lamps gave us some height in the room which we desperately needed. And they’re just so grand and gorgeous looking! Oh and the farmhouse tin next to one of the lamps with the faux olive branches in it is just a cute detail that gave the space more of a farmhouse feel, which is something I really wanted. I can’t recommend these faux olive branches enough! They add little touches of green throughout our house without the maintenance of a real plant. Which by the way, we did buy a few real plants for the house and almost all of them are already dead because I suck at keeping house plants alive! Ha! So I highly recommend faux plants which we used a lot of throughout the house as well.

Oh and the pillows on our couch totally pull the entire space together! This was another Etsy find! I got them from a shop called Pillow Time Girls. The quality and construction of these pillow shams is absolutely superb and the quality of the fabric is just dreamy! It’s so important to me to have super comfortable pillows on our family room couch because we spent so much time there. So we ended up getting the navy velvet pillow shams and this blue medallion print. I’m not exactly sure what a standard size throw pillow is but I believe it’s 20“ x 20“. However, given the large space and our large sectional couch we wanted to go with bigger pillows. So we got 24“ x 24“ throw pillows. That’s another great thing about the Pillow Time Girls Etsy shop. They make each pillow sham to order so you can get the right size to suit your space.

The sheep stool, armchair, and storage ottomans are also all from Wayfair. Many of you have asked, after watching my Instagram story, how we keep our house so tidy with a two-year-old and an infant. Well the truth is, it’s not always tidy! Our house gets messy just like anybody else’s. But I will say that these storage ottomans are a huge help for keeping the clutter down in our house. The top of them comes off and we use them to store all of Molly’s toys that she likes to play with in the family room. She does have her own separate play area, that I will also feature in this home tour series at some point in the next few weeks, but ultimately a lot of those toys end up in the family room since that’s where we spend most of our time. So when she goes down for her nap we quickly toss all her toys in the storage ottomans. And then we do the same thing once again when she goes to bed at the end of the day. It literally takes all of two minutes and having our space clutter free makes us feel less stressed. I actually believe there’s been studies done that show if your space is less cluttered you won’t feel as stressed out. And we definitely find that to be true for us! And the storage ottomans double as extra seating when we have a lot of guests over. So we absolutely love them and I couldn’t recommend them more for your home.

The last thing I want to mention, because I know you guys will probably ask about it, is the clock in our family room. I wish this was something that I could give you guys a link to, but Veronica bought it at an antique market here in Los Angeles. So I guess you could say it’s one-of-a-kind! But you might’ve seen the white clock in the photo below ( it’s in our stairway) in one of my Instagram stories. We got the white clock from an Etsy shop called West Warren Clocks. They make a bunch of different styles of clocks that you can see in their shop, and I bet they can make you one super similar to the one in our family room. And I can vouch for the quality of their clocks since we have one in our home and it’s one of our favorite pieces!

1. MAXI DRESS | 2. BAR NECKLACE | 3. OVERSIZED WALL CLOCK

Oh this is actually the last thing. The white throw blanket on our couch is just DREAMY! Once again, it was an Etsy find. I got it from a shop called Becozi. Her blankets are the best quality and this particular one I like to call my “blogger blanket” because it looks so good in photos. It’s just a total bonus that it’s super comfy to snuggle up with on the couch. The size I got for my couch is 50X60, but you can order a bunch of different sizes.

And you know I can’t sign off without giving you guys details on my outfit. My top is great for breastfeeding which I am obviously still doing a TON of. And I just think it’s super flattering. Plus the navy blue went with my house so it was perfect to wear for this home tour 🙂 And because of the tie front I wore it with a pair of high waisted jeans. We took these photos when Riley was only 2-weeks-old so I definitely think this outfit was flattering on me when I didn’t necessarily feel my best.

OK well I think that’s the bulk of everything in the room! If you guys have any other questions for me please leave them in the comments below. And in general just let me know what your favorite pieces are! I’ve been waiting for so long to share the space with you guys and I’m dying to know what you all think! And let me know what room you’d like me to feature next in this home tour series. Our bedroom? Molly‘s room? Our dining room? Molly’s play area? Formal living room? My office? I want to know what you guys are most eager to see!

    1. I love your home! The blue accents give your home such a peaceful feel. You picked out great furniture and fabrics to blend together to give it a very good cozy and beautiful feel. Family and friends will feel so welcomed to be in your home.

  1. How do you keep a white couch clean with a toddler and baby spit up? (& I know I eat on my couch haha)

  2. Hi Ali
    it’s a beautiful room!
    Veronica & Kris are very talented. I really like the olive branch & the container it’s in.
    thanks for sharing & I can’t wait to see the other rooms in your beautiful home.
    I’d like to see the outdoor space, too. 🙂
    have a great day!

  3. Wow! It’s like an HGTV home tour. 🙂 Beautiful!
    I love that Owen hangs out in the sofa too. Wayfair is the best!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Beautiful design. Love the colour scheme, so fresh!
    I have to say I’m not one typically for fake plants but the faux olive stem looks great! Good find!
    I’m curious to see your formal living room! Because the style of the house seems to be pretty “easy-breezy” I’m curious to see how you added touches of formality to the living room.

    Thanks again for sharing parts of your home!

    Kate

    1. I was gonna ask that exact same question. I think it looks very nice but I would be too scared of it falling over my toddler. I’m guessing it’s secured in some way or other..?

  5. Finally! So excited to see your house! From what I’ve seen it’s amazing and I can’t wait till you talk about that crazy wine cellar thing going on!

  6. I love your home! It’s beautiful! We have a big white sectional like you and I love how cozy it is and how it fits so many! I love your built ins! Amazing!

  7. Would love to maybe see a quick video home tour at the end of the series! Even if it’s just with your phone. The photos are beautiful but a video might give us a better idea of the layout and how your rooms flow from one to the other. But I’m so excited to see each room in the upcoming weeks!

  8. Hi Ali,
    Would you be able to provide the link for the ladder in your pictures? The tall one that you have a blanket hanging on. We have been looking for one like this and I love the wood color of yours. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Such a beautiful and airy space! I love the little bit of contrast with the end tables and coffee tables. Would you mind sharing your best method for cleaning pet hair from fabric furniture?

  10. Thanks for sharing!
    I love the sectional you chose!
    Excited to see your kitchen & Molly’s playroom 🙂
    Can you share what flooring you have? Vinyl or hardwood and shade? Love them!

  11. Obsessed with the bowl/pot you have flowers in on main IG pic. Is that listed in here too?
    Everything is gorgeous!!

  12. I’m headed to Etsy right now for those brick bookends.

    Can’t wait to see the rest of the tour.

    Your home is absolutely dreamy!

  13. I love how bright your living space is! Having so much natural light and brightness is super important for my mood personally haha so I love all the white and pops of color. Also got super excited to see you bought so many items from Wayfair because I’m obsessed with that site, so I was like hey this is inspiration I can actually afford! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

  14. Did Wayfair provide these items at no charge? If so, you have to disclose that in a clear way. I’m not being picky, it’s literally an FTC rule, and for good reason. It honestly blows my mind how you continue to ignore this requirement.

    1. You are asking Ali if she got it at no cost, and then assuming that’s the case and being rude. Why don’t you give her a chance to answer your question before being mean about something you don’t even know for sure is fact?

      1. Who Cares? Are you the FTC police? Go find something better to do with your time then worrying about if someone is getting compensated for mentioning a company, maybe she’s just telling us where she got everything from 🤷‍♀️

        1. I just received the couch and it’s going back. I follow Ally, but this must have been a freebie and I doubt it’s still in the home. So uncomfortable and every pillow is different. The skirt is wrinkled and who wants a skirt on the couch anyway?
          I also bought some of the Walmart” clothes and they were not from Walmart and didn’t fit. They make you pay shipping and restocking for a $13 item so I just threw them out because it wasn’t worth sending back for the same cost. Starting to doubt all of these posts. I think I’ll shop on my own.

    2. I think this is a fair question, and I have wondered about it too with all the Nordstrom, ModCloth, etc. No shame in getting stuff for free, but the FTC does require an affiliate disclosure – she is required to tell her audience when she is getting paid to promote or endorse their products.

      1. I hear that- and kudos to you- the way you said that was so much more respectful than the way it was first mentioned. There’s a way to say things – that’s all.

        1. yeah, I’ve wondered this too. even posts with ‘ali’ special promo codes should have a disclaimer? the only thing I’ve ever seen acknowledgement of sponsorship on is philips advent products…

  15. So excited to see your home series! We just moved into our new home as well, and while we painted and refinished the floors, (mostly all white walls too!) we haven’t done any decorating yet. We also love the farmhouse feel and look, so I’m excited to see how you styled each room with that theme in mind! Also curious to know what color paint you chose for your walls, and what kind of flooring you have! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Hi Ali. I’m trying to get ideas for my small entryway that is also part of my living room. Could you show us your entryway decor? Thanks! I love your living room!

  17. Love it!! Thanks for sharing. Going to order from the pillow shop, for sure! Would love to see your bedroom next!

  18. Absolutely beautiful and timeless!! I am saving all the links and will hopefully try to get my house decor to have a similar style to yours! It’s exactly what I’m going for. I would love to see Molly’s room or the nursery room! I’m getting ideas for our baby coming in January!😉 Also, where did you get your coffee table from? I don’t think I saw a link for it.

  19. Ali, your house is beautiful! You are so lucky! I can’t wait to see the rest of your home tour. I was wondering if you could share the paint color you chose for your front door? It’s stunning! My fiance and I just bought our first house, and it’s white on the outside too. We’d like to change the color of our front door to add a pop of color, and the color you chose is lovely!

  20. So beautiful!!! I can’t wait for your kit hen reveal where you have that bottle rack behind glass! Plus I would love a review on your high chair I’m considering the same one!! Your house is gorgeous!!

  21. Ali, your house is beautiful!! You’re so brave going with white furniture with a toddler, baby and dog. Can’t wait to see the rest!!

  22. This room is absolutely gorgeous and I am sure feels so warm in person! You and your designer did such a great job! Can’t wait to see the other rooms in the house. Also, messaged you on IG with a question that may be worth doing a blog post about. Thank you for sharing your house with the world lol.

  23. Loving the look of your space!! Could you tell me where you got the tall ladder that you hang your blanket(s) on? We could really use something like that to help fill space in our living room due to the high ceilings – I totally understand what you mean when talking about the large lamps!

  24. Your family room looks amazing. I also like Wayfair- I’ve ordered lamps, a chandelier for my dining room and recently a recliner which looks great in my living room. Can’t wait to see the rest of your home.

  25. Love the home tour your house is gorgeous. Navy is my favorite color so I love that you chose that to mix with the white it looks awesome. Thanks for the info on what to put in the built ins that is something I always struggle with when we move. I love love the books they are fabulous. I love to read abc love the look of the books so thanks for that great tip and sharing the Etsy site. Show Molly’s room next she is such a cutie I really want to see her cute space in your new home. You and Veronica did an amazing job. I loved everything.

    xoxo
    Angele

  26. Beautiful home! Although it is out of stock, could you provide the name of the coffee table from Wayfair?! Thank you and looking forward to more!

  27. Hi! I love your house tour so far! Where is the black chandelier from in the picture of you with the red and white dress? I can only see part of it, but I can tell I love it! LOL Thanks!

  28. I’m so glad you are showing us your home! It is stunning and I love seeing all your pictures. I was wondering where the chandelier in your stairway is from? Gorgeous 🙂

  29. So far, your house looks gorgeous!!! I would love to see what the outside of it looks like. Will you be doing an exterior tour too?

  30. Absolutely beautiful! Would love to see your entryway. Also love the coffee table, ladder, and white cabinet. May I ask where those are from?

  31. Beautiful white theme! As the children grow and the spills and stains accumulate you can always use a variety of couch covers. Why do I say this? Because it happened to me. I started with white and loved it so much, but the kids and animals left there Mark. I then added a variety of different covers to hide the stains, and after getting professionally cleaned, still used the covers. I could change up the room with various quilts, pillows, etc. and it was nice having the change with a few simple accents! Love that room!

  32. I count five tables in one room. Seems a bit weird and all the hard surfaces make the space feel cold instead of cozy. The small tables (and ladder) are a recipe for disaster when Riley is older. Raising boys is no joke.

  33. Love your living room!! It’s absoutely beautiful. I agree with posing large objects in a space. The large objects are like statement pieces but also makes for a more clean and simple look. Where is the ladder and blanket (on the ladder) from?

    Can’t wait to see the rest of the house! Thanks for sharing, Ali! 🙂

  34. Your home seems to fit your family’s personality/vibe so well!! Obviously I don’t know you all, but that’s just what it seems like 🙂 I’m most excited to see Molly’s room! I remember you sharing her nursery from your old house and it was AMAZING! Can’t wait to see what her room looks like now.. sooo many options for kids!

  35. Love your home! Do you have a link for the large white cabinet that the lamps are on? Is that from Wayfair as well?

  36. I like white and blues. Great job. I would only do one thing and that is to change out the lamps to add a pop of color on that side to blue or wood lamps to match clock. The white lamps blend in and cant see them. Otherwise love the pillows.

  37. I’m dying yo know where all Molly’s toys are hidden. Does she have a dedicated play room? What room does she spend the most time in?

  38. Lovely and fresh! I’d really enjoy seeing pictures of the exterior of your home. You said you love farmhouse style and I’m wondering if that is the style of the structure of your home as well. Hope you’re up for sharing exterior photos too!!

  39. It looks gorgeous and so inviting! Thanks for taking the time to tell about it💙 I had a really hard time keeping plants alive as well! But, my mom taught me a little trick that is helping 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Maybe you’ve tried it- if not, put the little plastic dishes under the pot and pour water in there instead of on top of the dirt! It’s been a game changer 😁😂

  40. Beautiful room can’t wait to see the rest of the house!
    You posted on Instagram how much Molly loves the song Havana and I just heard a lullaby version by Dreamy Sugar that I thought she might like. They do lots of popular songs in slow instrumental lullaby versions.I play Can’t take my eyes off of you to my new baby!

  41. Love everything Ali! Where did you get your white end table and your blue pot plant on your coffee table?

    Thanks,
    Hellen

  42. Hi am I missing where you talked about the other console table? The one that the farmhouse tin is on? LOVE it would love to know where it’s from, thanks!

  43. Hi Ali!!
    Thanks for opening your home to us!! I’m excited about this series because my husband and I bought our first home! And we’re starting to work on furnishing it! Our 16 month old daughter loves having more space and I like the idea of the ottomans for her toys. Wayfair is AMAZING!! We bought our headboard there for our bedroom and love it! I wanted a romantic feel and they didn’t disappoint! I’m getting some more things from their site, along with Etsy site. Have you heard of Kirkland’s? They have some neat pieces as well! Keep the updates coming as I need to get my house all cozy ☺️ XO

  44. Ho Ali, your home looks absolutely AMAZING! I can’t eait to see the other rooms! Would love to see your kitchen next, I remember you posted about it a while ago, asking if you should add splashes of color or leave it all white. I too am obsessed with an all white kitchen so I am really curious to see how it turned out!
    Ps. Toootally feel you on the drinking while nursing thing.. I truly felt like a camel in the middle of the desert the second my son latched on! 😌

  45. Wayfair is so awesome with a ridiculous amount of items/options for home items. I bought my home a little over a year ago and I can’t even believe the amount of furniture and accessories from Wayfair I purchased (I actually have a blanket from them at home waiting for me right this very moment).

    I am also a HUGE Etsy fan.

    Your home is beautiful! Congratulations to all of you!

  46. I’ve been hoping you will post pics of your house! I love following all your blogs! Me and my husband are building a house now so I will have to save these for the future! Do you mind me asking the size of your family room? It looks spacious but cozy!

  47. Thanks for showing us your decor in your home. But, it is a bit inconsistent with your whole premise of being such a bargain hunter. Very pretty decor, very expensive decor!

  48. I think the room is just beautiful and very classic! Perfect for your family! I don’t get how anyone could have a critical comment, but if they do, they are probably just jealous!

  49. Serious question – how often does the sheep stool get used? It is absolutely adorable and Molly looks so stinking cute on it but is it practical? I can’t imagine kids cosying up on it but then again I don’t have kids lol.

    The cushion x carpet combo is a DREAM. I am seriously considering getting the exact same combo. At the least maybe the carpet???

    Your house is absolutely gorgeous, Ali.

  50. We have this couch in the Lizzy graphite (dark grey) and we LOVE it! So comfy and cozy. I wanted the white so bad but the hubby said no due to our three kiddos. Now, I’m wishing I would have gone for it anyway, What a beautiful space!

  51. This is all SO beautiful and I’m sure it’s taken a ton of time to go through and share all of it for us so thank you! We have been on the hunt for a coffee table forever and so I’m bummed yours is no longer available! Is it Wayfair? Can you share the link in case they happen to restock?! Thanks Ali! Love everything and can’t wait to see more rooms!!

  52. I Love your family room,classic,light and bright. I am ordering that couch and would Love to buy that coffee table. Where is the coffee table from? Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

  53. Your home is stunning! I love how white everything is. I too love Wayfair, though I am scared to order something like a couch without having an opportunity to sit on it and see how comfortable it is…did you just cross your fingers and hope that it would be comfortable?

  54. Where did you find your bunny sheet from that Riley is on from your Insta story today? Our two year old’s nickname is Bunny, and this is perfect! Also, do you like the nested bean swaddle? Our 4 month old Beckett doesn’t like his arms inside a swaddle, but needs the comfort!

  55. I just saw your IG story and I think you meant to say “scalding hot shower” not scolding 🙂 I am also a big fan of a super hot shower!

  56. Hi Ali- i Love your home, it’s so homey and beautiful. Can you please tell me where your curtains are from? Thank you so much!!

  57. I love your floors! Are they tile wood planks? If so where did you get them and do you love them? We are wanting to put some down in our house and that would be the perfect color!

  58. Ali,

    I love all of your home decor. It’s so bright, cozy and beautiful. Could you tell me where you got that beautiful white flower wreath that’s on your front door? It’s stunning. Thanks for being so real.

    Love, Gabrielle

  59. Hi,

    Your home is beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I have a question about the name of your couch. When you click the link it takes you to the entire Wayfair sectionals page and not your specific couch.

    Thanks
    Nancy
