Vintage Flush Mount Light Fixture

Well, it's finally starting to feel like fall in KC! The daytime temps are warm, and the morning and evening temps are perfectly chilly - sleeping weather at it's finest!

I wanted to quickly share a vintage find I scored for our bedroom. We were in Des Moines a few weekends ago visiting my family and we popped into a few vintage/antique stores. We were searching for a light fixture for our master bedroom sitting area. As I turned the corner, this light was staring me in the face! The owner of the space happened to be sitting in the booth. I asked her the price because there was no price tag and she just said, "How about $75?" SOLD, SOLD, SOLD! She told me she painstakingly cleaned every crystal herself and the hard wiring was perfectly working. SOLD, SOLD, SOLD!

New Glass Panel Front Door

Good morning and happy Monday! I mentioned in this post a few weeks ago that we had pulled the trigger on a new glass panel front door. It arrived last week and I'm in love!!

"Eat Well, Travel Often" Printed & Framed

Good morning! The whole month of September has sort of had me going every which way and back again! Busy in a good way with company, being out of town, new school/activity routines, starting a new job, hosting a party, and finishing house projects! This week slows down a bit, and I couldn't be happier about that. I spent most of Sunday relaxing and did a lot of sitting…something I really don't do much of!

We have a new framed typography print in our eating area that I wanted to share with you. I had been wanting something large scale and graphic for this space. I also wanted something casual and something that represented us as a family. Our home is very open concept, so basically no walls and everything can be seen from every room. The eating area is at the center of it all.

Fall Home Tour - 2015

Hello, happy Friday, and welcome to the Life Love Larson fall home tour! If you are visiting from Designing on the Side, I'm happy you are here! A big thank you to Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for hosting this tour. We are nearing the end of the week and the end of the tour, and I hope you have a chance to check out all 30 homes and are finding some good inspiration!

I'm not particularly drawn to traditional fall colors, but I've tried to incorporate texture, layers, greenery, and fresh flowers to add warmth and make our home feel cozy as the temperatures start to drop and the days become shorter. Transitioning into fall in our home is fun because it means football, bonfires, pumpkins, and jeans are all on their way! Welcome to our home!

DINING ROOM: I'm crushing on everything blush colored right now. These pillows found their way to the dining room. Along with some fresh greenery, leopard print runner and touches of gold, this speaks to me in a non-traditional fall kind of way. I'm a believer in decorating with what you love, no matter the season! Clipped stems from the yard add freshness to the bar cart.

Sorry I didn't get yesterday's posted before today! I had my first day back at work (after 8 years) and it was so fun! Being a preschool teacher really doesn't feel like work, and I feel happy and blessed to be starting a new chapter! My kids were so excited for mom to start and I turned the tables and had them take a "1st day of school" picture with me! xo

Sorry I am late to the game on today's links for the Fall Home Tour! We've been out of town all day and just getting back into the swing of things! It's supposed to cool down here this week, so these fall home tours feel more appropriate for the season!

Fall Chalkboard 2015 // Home Tour Line Up

Happy Friday! I have been at preschool this week getting ready the room ready with my co-teachers and meeting my new students/families. It's been such fun for me, I can't wait to get started! This weekend, we are taking the kids back to our college town for a football game. We take them every year and tailgate with family and it's always a great time. We are all looking forward to it, despite it not quite feeling like football weather yet (90 degrees still)!

Now that the calendar has turned to September, I have started to get into fall mode. I washed up the chalk wall and created our 2015 fall bucket list. I have been doing a summer & fall list on this chalk wall for several years, and it's one of my kid's favorite things. Mom loves it too! The chalk wall separates our kitchen and mudroom and is very hard to photograph!
