Meet Clarissa, a local Arizona blogger and one of our favorite supermoms. This down-to-earth blogger shares her honest truths and tips about being a wife and mother of 3 kiddos on her blog, MyWifeStyles.com. We fell in love with the authenticity of Clarissa’s blog, so when she reached out to us in February to collaborate on a room makeover we immediately said yes! This month she renewed her living room with simple, no-fuss pieces that are both comfortable and kid-friendly. Below is an excerpt from her blog and some of the pieces she featured.
An All American Country Style Living Room Reveal
(Excerpt from original blog post on MyWifeStyles.com)
So, we decided this year to focus on our home. Have you ever heard the saying “Home is where the heart is?” This is 100% true! I believe no matter how big the size of your house is, or the many nice things you have in it, it will not be a home unless there is love. With that said, I also believe the cozier the home, the more comfortable you are. From a young family who often gets “bored” of their home, I needed this more than ever in my life. I was longing for a change, and I struggled to bring my “vision” to life with what we had already. So, we decided to toss out the majority of our furniture and are starting all over! First, with the living room!
From not having a “theme” in our home, I knew I have always been so obsessed with wood, and cottagey type feels. I didn’t really know where to start or what the theme I wanted was called. I just knew I had a vision, and I needed to go with it, blindly. We chose to head on over to American Furniture Warehouse, and it was the best decision! From their affordable prices to huge variety, to the friendliest staff. We felt very comfortable in decision making, we even had to head back there more than once (4 times to be exact), because we just couldn’t get enough. There was so much to choose from!
Well, low and Behold we now have a very American Country type feel, and I am in love. This is home.
We decided not to do a sectional this time around, not that I really mind the shape of a sectional, but I felt like it took too much space in one spot. So I wanted to buy a sofa and love seat, with a chair so I can spread them around the room without them being close together. Not to mention, no more Microfiber. That stained soo easy. And if you have kids, you understand. We bought this nice brown sofa set that you can find here and the blue chair here.
Like my sister once told me, you can never have too much green in your home. For me, I don’t have much of a green thumb. As a matter of fact, I don’t have a green thumb at all. So, all the plants in my home are currently fake. You can buy some affordable, yet real-looking trees, here.
Obsessed with my Kona Coffee table and side table, the wood color is beautiful, and it brings out that country feel I’m looking for. Click here for the coffee table, and here for the side table.
