The area where we previously had our Christmas tree, is one of the loveliest little spots in our home. After Christmas, it was feeling so barren & sad with the tree no longer there. This made me want to give it a little makeover to bring new cheer to the space. Thanks to Grandin Road, we turned this lonely spot into a lovely & inviting little seating area.
Who they are
Grandin Road, if you’re not familiar, is a home decor company that not only makes the most fabulous seasonal decor that you ever will see, but makes furniture as well.
I have always loved their pieces, especially during the holiday season and that’s what made me even more excited about this makeover.

For this collaboration, I was looking to focus on that specific area in our home that I felt needed a re-do or pick me up as you might say.
Once the tree came down, this lovely little spot was feeling so sad and lonely like it usually does each year when the holiday decor comes down.
To bring joy back into this spot, I had an idea of turning it into a beautiful little seating area. This space has a good amount of windows that look out into a wooded backyard where you’ll always see deer or pretty little birds. It’s a wonderful spot to grab a book and read or just enjoy the views of outdoors.
The pieces I wanted & why
With the vision in my mind of what I wanted for the area, my search began on Grandin Road’s website. The piece that stood out to me the most initially was the Ava half chair. I really wanted this to be the focal point of the space. It’s such a lovely piece of furniture, I just had to have it! Can you not easily see yourself cuddling up with a book on it?
Along with its matching ottoman, a beautiful side table and storage ottoman for the side, I knew this was going to make for a wonderful transformation!
Grandin road’s website is so full of gorgeous pieces that it can make choosing very difficult. Once I saw the darling pink Faye bench I knew it would be perfect paired with these other pieces.
To give the space finishing touches, I grabbed golden candle holders, a chic little metallic throw, a fluffy pink pillow for a pop of color, and my most favorite pillow ever, the “be our guest” pillow.
Loves, this spot has truly become mine and my families most favorite spot in the home. The kids find this area so inviting they’re constantly wanting to cuddle up on the Ava chair!
I couldn’t be more happier or thankful for the way this spot turned out.
