nautical inspired nook

With just a few handsome pieces from Jayson Home & Garden, I'm imagining a pretty sitting area just for me. A quiet space that is casually modern and simple with thoughtfully designed furnishings.

A modern wing chair gives off a cozy vibe with its crisp white slipcover and generous size. I’m pairing it with a turned leg ottoman that’s more traditional in design, but in a muted striped fabric to keep it contemporary. A brass vintage-inspired floor lamp looks like something taken right from an architect’s office, and the twiggy gold table adds a bit of whimsy to the mix. I’m topping it all off with a dark cotton pillow for another layer of pattern and to balance all that white on the chair.

Kristin, this is my favorite store of all time. I was just in over the weekend and found a million new treasures. Sadly I am not rich enough to purchase them. Sadder still I finally found that perfect chaise! Only took four years. Now I need to save :) thanks for reminding me of Jayson's. I only went in after I was reminded I needed to visit that place again after seeing your blog

Hi Elly! We have to explore there together some time... such a rush digging through all their treasures. If only we could find that pot of gold so we can afford all the things we'd like to take home.
