Edgewood Cottage // Mix and Match Dining Chair Inspiration

We've been in our home five months now and with things finally settling into a bit of a routine, we're starting to work on getting it just the way we want it! One of the things we loved most about our little edgewood cottage is that it's old (built in 1949) but updated enough that we don't need to do much - just some loving touches and the fun stuff. Of course I'm already dreaming of a total kitchen remodel and adding on an outdoor room but for now it's all about the furniture and details. 

First on our list was a front porch swing and I love it so much - it's such a great spot to spend the evening, swinging and watching the neighborhood kids play in the front yards. Next, we replaced our tiny little ikea sofa with a big comfy sectional and now the whole family can stretch out and lounge comfortably together and it's amazing! Up next is our dining room - we're hosting Thanksgiving this year so we want to be sure we have plenty of space for the whole family. We got a beautiful farm table that seats eight and have been using four hand-me-down chairs until we figured out exactly what we wanted. While I originally thought we would get all new matching chairs, the hand-me-down chairs have really grown on me so we're planning to keep those four and add in a variety of vintage inspired chairs (only because I wasn't able to find actual vintage ones in good shape). I have always loved the eclectic mix-and-match look and after finding these beautiful collected dining room spaces as inspiration I don't think I can do it any other way! Achieving the casual and collected look without it feeling random or haphazard can be tricky and it is so hard to pull the trigger on decisions for my own home but I have a feeling I am going to love it. Stay tuned for an update on how it turns out and tips for how to get the look!
