Affordable Home Updates + A Giveaway

Every fall I like to go through my home and do somewhat of a purge. I go through room by room and clean, organize and donate or throw out what is no longer needed or used. With two young children, my house would look like something out of hoarders if I didn’t do this! As I worked through this process over the fall, I realized that my living room was starting to look dated. As we have updated our master bedroom, kitchen and bathroom areas over the past couple of years we have completely neglected our main living space. When my husband and I were first living together, we purchased our furniture from The Room Place and were so impressed with the design and affordable price, but the fact that the pieces have lasted almost 10 years meant that we knew we’d go back when it was time to update! Thanks to The Room Place we’ve gotten to do just that!


I have always loved decorating and finding pieces for my home that reflect my personality and style. In the past, I’ve usually favored fairly traditional furniture with detailed craftsmanship, luxurious fabrics and ornate details. However, as I have gotten older, my style has definitely evolved and changed. Now I seek to marry these traditional elements, with more classic pieces and cleaner lines to achieve a timeless look. 

When it came to selecting some new pieces for our living room, I knew I would need to find pieces that didn’t sacrifice style for comfort and vice versa. We spend so much time in this space that I wanted it to be both practical and stylish and The Room Place made it easy. Lately I’ve been trying to incorporate neutral grey pieces so I selected this oversized chenille sofa and ottoman set that are both super comfy and align perfectly with our personal style. And at just $599, the sofa is a lot of bang for your buck.

I have also been enjoying adding more decorative, but still functional, pieces into the space, so I also added this chic mercury glass table lamp. This lamp was only $89.99 but is super similar to those I’ve seen for 3x as much! Adding fun and cozy accessories like these gold polka dot and chevron throw pillows and this sherpa blanket makes the room feel festive and holiday ready. We are also planning to add this chair in the next few weeks. I absolutely love the studded detail!

The Room Place is also generously awarding a $250 gift card to one lucky Wishes & Reality reader! Enter using the Rafflecopter below. The winner will be announced at the beginning of next week. Good Luck!
