Favorite Room....Ella Claire


 Hello Savvy Southern Stylers! I am Kristen from the blog, Ella Claire and I am excited to share a little glimpse of one of my favorite rooms with you today! This may not be the best decorated room in our home, but it is the room that we spend a lot of time, the place where I snuggle and play with my babies, and the room where we sit and have long talks. I love this space and I have especially loved how it has evolved over the years to fit our needs. This is our bonus room which serves as our family room and play room and TV room all in one. It is the length of the 3 car garage below, so it was a pretty empty and cavernous space before we made any changes. When I first decorated the space last year, this is what I came up with. We have changed the carpet since then, but for the most part it stays the same until it comes time to decorate for holidays!

Decor from ellaclaireinspired.comHere is is decorated for Halloween. Our couches were actually hand me downs that we purchased from my brother. They aren't necessarily what I would have chosen if I had purchased them new, but they have held up really well to a loft of abuse up here in our family space so they have been great!


You can see the tutorial for this gallery wall clip (mousetraps!) board HERE.
I love all things vintage, and I especially love vintagey Halloween decorations! My Ella and I love to play with this fun little bean bag toss toy. You can see the painting tutorial for this birdcage HERE. I made the little paper decorations for around my home a couple years ago.

It has since been covered by even more beautiful artwork from my little ones. DSC_0335 DSC_0391 Warm and cozy and family friendly. There is really nothing in my home that is too breakable. I like to teach my babies to treat our home respectfully, but not to be afraid of living in it. I love having a space like this to just snuggle and play with them. It has been so fun to visit with you today! 

Thanks Kristen for sharing your favorite space with us. I love how you have added some whimsical decor for Halloween especially the gallery wall clips. Those are very interesting.

If y'all haven't visited Ella Claire before you will love her home all decked out for Halloween.

I hope y'all have a safe and Happy Halloween!

This is the last in the favorite room series for awhile with the next two months being very busy with the holidays.

PS. A very happy birthday to my SISTER today. It's a big one!!!
