Owning a home for the very first time unleashed my love for decorating. I’m by no means a fantastic interior designer but I really do enjoy shopping around and finding fun things to incorporate into our new home to give it the comfortable, welcoming vibe Ryan and I hoped to achieve.
Our latest undertaking has been our baby’s nursery! Between painting the room, assembling furniture, picking out bedding and selecting fun prints to hang on the walls, we’ve been working away and having a blast. The nursery is almost done!
Once we hang pictures and play around with the furniture layout, I’ll be sure to share a sneak peek into our baby’s space with you guys, but for now, here’s a little behind-the-scenes look into our progress:
Earlier this month, I received and email from Interior Define, a company that offers customizable furniture and beautiful throw pillows at affordable prices, offering me the chance to host a $1,000 giveaway to their website on my blog. A $1,000 giveaway is a hard thing to turn down since I know it will go a long way for one winner and I hope one of you out there who is in the market for a new chair, loveseat or couch will find something you absolutely love on their site! (You can see some of my hand-selected personal favorite items from their site here.)
Interior Define let me select a throw pillow off their website along with a handful of fabric swatches (<— always complimentary on their site!) that appealed to me to give me a feel for the quality and durability of their fabrics. Ryan and I actually had to send back a chair we ordered online for in our living room because the color didn’t look anything like it did in the pictures of the chair online, so the fact that Interior Define offers free fabric swatches to anyone is pretty awesome, especially if you’re a little timid about ordering furniture online.
The pillow I selected was the Wide Stripe Accent Pillow, which I chose because I thought it would make a great addition to our baby’s room and add a little pop of blue to our mostly-neutral nursery.
The pillow fabric is made of a combination of cotton and flax yarn-dyed dobby cloth with 100 percent organic cotton backing and I love the way the blue color popped against the frilly white bedding I chose for the twin bed in the nursery. Since the bedding I picked for the room is admittedly rather feminine, I am a big fan of the way the pillow adds an element of masculinity while still maintaining the comfortable, calming vibe of the space.
So now about that giveaway…
Interior Define $1,000 Giveaway
One PBF reader will win $1,000 to Interior Define! Yes, $1,000! This is, without a doubt, one of the most valuable giveaways I’ve ever had the honor of hosting and I’m thrilled to offer it to you guys today!
So, how does Interior Define work? Here’s a simplified breakdown:
Interior Define offers customized furniture at an affordable price point (generally 30-40% less than comparable retailers) by maintaining an online presence that cuts out retail markups and follows a made-to-order service model
Customers can customize the size, configuration, material, cushion fill, and legs on almost every piece of furniture to fit design needs and preferences
Most pieces are available in 40-60 fabric options, and Interior Define offers complimentary swatches
Custom options are available online, and additional options are available through the company’s customer concierges over the phone or in person at their flagship store in Chicago
Basically if you see something you like on the Interior Define website but want to tweak it in some way to make it perfectly suit your design needs, they can do that for you! Sweet, right!?
And before you commit to buying a chair or couch from their website, don’t forget that you can request one (or several) of their complimentary swatches to ensure the color and feel of the fabric you’re selecting will work perfectly in your home.
(Can you tell I love neutrals any anything in the sea foam green/blue family right now?)
