black accent chair

I have been slightly tweaking and moving this room around for what feels like the longest.  Ironically, it’s the room we spend the most time in!  I am so excited to finally share what we have finally come up with to fill this space comfortably.  This is our den and intended to feel like more of a casual “family room.”   It is open to the kitchen, breakfast room, bar and living room, so it was important to me that these four spaces flowed nicely with each other.

Originally I had these super cool Citizenry accent chairs in this room.  But once this Anecdote coffee table came in, the finishes didn’t flow.  I moved my Paula Rallis Home boomerang chairs from my office to the den and put the safari chairs upstairs and it all worked out just right.

Below are the photos of the styled space that I’m so excited to share.  And be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for a $500 giveaway you don’t want to miss!

  24. The den looks amazing! Thank you so much for sharing! We just moved into a new home in November (while I was 9 months pregnant!!) so I’m constantly looking for inspiration! My main focus right now is dining room, living room and kitchen. Wow, I have a lot to focus on! Specifically, living room rug, light fixtures in kitchen and dining room and dining room table and chairs!

  25. Sydneyksmith_ I would love to use the gift card to purchase some gorgeous throw pillows and accessories to complete my living room. After looking at Anecdote’s website, they have all the best pieces to complete my room!

  26. Beautiful, Kathleen! Particularly love your ability to mix black and white contemporary and modern pieces with some texture and pops of small color to keep things warm and cozy! Would like to redo accessories in my kitchen and dining space! @kljalo

  27. Oh dear. Second post of the morning. My baby started crying and I hit send without my insta handle! I’m @jlewsmitty and I LOVE your den! I would definitely spend the credit on light fixtures in kitchen or dining room! Back to baby!

  28. Kathleen! It’s beautiful, classy, spunky and downright fun. I’ve been following the makings of this beautiful room since the beginning. What a finish. Now sit down and have yourself a big old glass of red because you’ve earned it! My husband and I just moved into our very first home. I’ve been having dreams of beautiful pieces like those from Anecdote to really make my rooms come to life! We’ve got a loud Italian family being the youngest of five girls and I need extra chairs in my living room to gather and accommodate! It would be a win for the ages!

    Peace, love and sanity during this time! Instagram handle: nruane22

  29. @lauren_mink
    I would love to add a beautiful accent chair to my family room from anecdotes collection! Could use some extra cheer these days!

  30. Oh my gosh I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to splurge on some of their pillows I think I spent 30 minutes down the Instagram rabbit hole last night after I saw them tagged in your pic, scrolling over their gorgeous pillows that are exactly what I’ve been looking for!

    You did such a great job on this room not only in decorating but in managing to give so much love to smaller companies who are absolutely crushing the interior decorating game. Stunning Kathleen, truly. @j_slo

  31. I love all of the prints! We just bought our first home in our new city and I love looking at your page for design inspiration. I would love to get the chance to use Anecdote to start building my own aesthetic with some great pieces I can use forever! helen.shaffe

  32. house looks great!! major goals.

    Instagram: meprzezd@

    I just bought my first place and struggling to get the motivation to decorate and furnish with full time job. This might just be the kick start I need to get motivated ❤️

  33. Your den is beautiful – the built ins

    Got married in December and my now-husband already had a home – i would use the credit to help us “de-bachelor” our home!! He is a resident at University of Mississippi Medical Center and I am graduating medical school in May (sin-ceremony & just matched in Jackson!! Again, sin-ceremony ) so funds are a wee bit tight around here!


  34. @emilybauman I’m moving into my first “big girl apartment” in September post grad, and want the space to really feel like me! Love your den! Looks so cozy

  35. Hi Kathleen!!

    I love how your place has modern taste and lines with southern classic flare! I would love to use the $500 gift card to spruce up my bare apartment to create a more homey atmosphere. Idk if this spark to decorate is coming from working from home indefinitely or if its just time to get my life and home together now that I’ve been out of school for a while! Who knows!!

    Have a great quarantine day!!


  36. Your den is the inspiration for my new house!! Can’t wait to start decorating!

  37. @caroline_maddox
    My fiancé and I are getting married in May (or at least we were before this whole ordeal—hopefully we will not have to cancel! ) and then moving into our first home together! We’re so excited for our next step together in life, and this would be such a cool way to help us create a home together! In a time with so much uncertainty and stress, thank you for doing a fun giveaway!! Sending love from Alabama

  38. Love this room! Would totally start with that coffee table! @cmryle

    Also – where is your rug from?

    Thank you!

  39. The boy and I just moved in together and not only is it like GREAT NOW YOU CAN’T LEAVE but we have so much furniture to buy since combining houses! We have no kitchen chairs or couch; I’m losing it! Unpacking is our quarantine hobby now.


  40. This room is so beautiful! Would start my shopping with that gorgeous coffee table! @cmryle

    Also – where is your rug from?


  41. Oops! Forgot to leave my handle – it is @abbienick. I’ve been using your home tours as inspiration! Just got a new house so will get to start decorating when we move in next month!

  42. I started following you on a friends recommendation because she thought I would love your home decor style and eye. She was SO right. This room is gorgeous. I would love the credit as I’m currently doing a major spring spruce up of my apartment and need some new home accents & a new rug!!

    Thanks for opening your home up and sharing!

  43. Stunning! I’d love to use the credit to update our living room. Have been wanting to for awhile and even more so now that my husband and I are working from home for the foreseeable future! Thank you for sharing your style with us, so much inspiration! IG: @annabee__

I just purchased my first house (yay!) – an ’85 town home that is charming and quaint, and I am having the most fun finding decor inspo from Kathleen. I love all things Anecdote (have been daydreaming of purchasing something since Kathleen and Danielle Moss have posted items purchased for their homes!) I would love to purchase home art, pillows, and home decor for built in shelves. LOVE the lighting from Anecdote also .. some of my current light fixtures are fun and vintage, but I am hoping to bring fun, modern vibes with new lighting!

  47. Love your style and those shoes! Ugh really cute. I would love to refresh my living room. Currently we have some old couches & the coffee table was a cheap one from college we painted. The whole room could use some love. OR I have a beautiful dining table, but no chairs yet. Would love some great chairs to hold with the table. Love you Kathleen, keep doing you, you’re wonderful, hilarious & real.

  48. IG handle is @leigh.r.malone

    Hi Kathleen! Your house looks amazing. My husband and I are currently living with my parents for the time being after having moved back to Nashville from SF (Yes girl, I too am kissing the floors and full of gratitude currently ). we would use the gift card to help us furnish the home we’re planning on moving into this summer.

    Thank you for the inspo always and for helping small businesses during this time.

  50. My fiancé and I are getting married in May (or we were before all this craziness! Fingers crossed we don’t have to cancel ) and will be moving into our first home together! This would be an awesome way to kick things off and help us create our first home! Things are all very crazy and stressful right now, so I really appreciate you doing a giveaway to keep things fun and light! Side note: the house we are planning on moving into has a very daunting set of built-ins that I know I will love, but have been stumped on how to style them. Definitely going to steal tons of ideas from yours! Love them!

    Love from Alabama

    1. Oh wow I am so bad at this. I commented twice by accident because I thought the first one didn’t go through, and then didn’t include my insta handle on the second. My bad I’m @caroline_maddox

  51. Thank you for sharing! I’d love to update our play room into a more grown up space. My insta is danijelao12! Have a lovely day!

  52. I love the Dune coffee table! So unique, modern but rustic. We are in need of a coffee table so that is what I would use the credit on. @rainabirden

  53. I would love to refresh our living room! We’ve cleaned everything out after the arrival of our son and I miss our coffee table! @brittanypengiel

  54. In love with your style!! I’m in need of a coffee table as well. Moved into a studio apartment and I’ve had a hard time finding one that fits the small space! IG handle: Robynlaura

  55. I’d love to use it on a really unique bookcase for my living room or an armchair
    My insta handle is @samimelaragno

  56. I would love to finally decorate and style our home. We bought our first place 2 years ago and have spent that time to slowly get furniture. Now the fun part can actually start and we can finally get some accessories and special pieces to make this place feel complete! @beatrizperezchicago

  57. Wow, simply gorgeous! You definitely have an eye for detail. What I love the most is that you’ve made it your own for that trendy but yet cozy feel. Congrats!
    Obsessed with the coffee table. Currently have zero furniture in my living room other than a couch, so THANKYOU for giving me this chance to participate and perhaps start making this place a home. @kespinoza1221

  58. Would love to treat ourselves with a beautiful rug for our new master bedroom hardwood floors! Or a piece for our still empty formal living room <3 @lauren0vigus

  59. @maryhannahh

    I am moving to Memphis, TN, in May and would love to use this to spruce up a new apartment/home!

  60. I love the design of this space – classic and trendy yet still very cozy! Hoping I can do a redesign like this! @jengrant21

  61. I want EVERYTHING from Anecdote! I have my eye on some decor items… little treasures that will make my apartment feel like home. That or I am obsessed with the marble cone table lamps! Eeek!

  62. @jengrant21 – love the design of this space! It’s cozy and still classic and trendy all at the same time! I hope I can do this in my space as well!

  63. Your home is stunning! I would buy a new piece of art for my home and a bunch of candles to send to friends as shelter in place gifts! @katie.stadler_

  64. Your home is absolute goals. If I win, I would spend this credit finally furnishing our new home which we haven’t been able to do since we were waiting to get through our wedding plans. Unfortunately our wedding has been postponed due to the coronavirus craziness and with so much uncertainty we are keeping our finances as tight as possible. Your posts are a breath of fresh air and give me some hope that we will finally have a sofa someday LOL.

  65. @janellnied – love it! Want a similar layout in my living room! First-time home buyer and living for these posts – thank you!!

  66. My husband I recently purchased our first home! Furnishing a new home is always a little bit stressful (and expensive!) and we’d planned to space out our big purchases as much as we could, BUT with all of the Corona craziness and the new need to work from home, I’d really like to make our space feel more cozy and complete. We’re spending most of our days working, eating, Netflixing, etc. in our den, so I would use this amazing Anecdote gift to purchase an “anchor piece” for our den—most likely something to put our TV on. Right now it is balancing on two end tables we have pushed together—I told my husband that it feels like we’re living at the Ole Miss Sigma Nu house ‍♀️ So fingers crossed!
    My Instagram handle is @erinsanderson1
    Stay healthy! ❤️

  67. I love, love. love your style! Thank you for giving me something to look at OTHER than COVID-19 content!! You can’t get away from it!! Your family is the cutest and your house is an inspiration. Thank you so much for bringing light into our lives! My instagram handle is @amychristinewu. Thank you!!

  68. I am in need of a living room refresh! I’m obsessed with the coffee table and can visualize that in my living room. Y’all I don’t even have a rug in the space and it’s been almost two years! @jessnicole_4

  69. It’s so hard to find the perfect coffee table and this is it! Would snatch up 2 of those with the giveaway @vanessanoelevents

  70. Omg! So fabulous!! I would use this to add a few things to make my living room feel more “home-y” and warm!! I am in LOVE with this coffee table!!

    Morgan Honey Lepper

  71. How fun! I’ve loved watching Anecdote develop over the last several months! I would love one of their candles, and maybe a piece artwork!

  72. @rcitystyle
    OMG. This $500 credit would be everything. Our coffee table is in shambles thanks to our adorable toddler. Defy time for an upgrade!

  73. I love your den Kathleen! Where is the tiger print from?

    I also love Anecdote (and Danielle Moss) and would love to use the gift card towards refreshing my home office during this crazy time! xoxo


  74. You’ve done an amazing job with this space! I just bought my first home (still waiting to close) and I’m so excited to jump in to decorating all the rooms. I’m loving these Anecdote pieces! My living room is up first! I’m on IG @britsedwards

  77. I love the island chairs in this room!! My Instagram is @macey_dials! I will be graduating from college this May (hopefully since commencement has already been pushed back due to the craziness) and would love to use the credit to start buying pieces for my own apartment that I can take with me everywhere I move!

  78. Your den looks beautiful!
    I would love to use the credit to purchase some timeless home pieces. I just bought a house and there is tons of furnishing to do and this would be a big help. @reckless__ness

  80. IG handle – kjweiser

    I would love to spend this credit giving our family/dining room a refresh since it currently only has a mini putting green c/o my boyfriend who I just moved in with after two years of long distance! He never used the room (or kitchen) before we moved in together and I would love to create a space where both of our local families can gather together for holidays and special occasions! He has a nice townhouse but could use some extra love to make it a HOME 🙂

  81. @crissym I NEED that same exact set of tables for our coffee table. Remodeled a home two years back and have been playing with our main living space coffee table situation ever since. THESE are my exact dream!!!

  82. My husband and I just moved back to Atlanta this past summer after 5ish years away from Georgia (husband just completed his Air Force commitment last year). I’ve really enjoyed following along your journey, because I’ve often been able to relate to so many of your posts. As a UGA grad, I loved seeing snippets of your life in Athens and have LOVED all of your design reveals. I think this reveal of the den is my favorite!!

    After renting for the last 10 months we are getting ready to close on our first home in a couple of weeks! We gravitate towards neutrals in our home and I love how you’ve decorated all of your spaces. I plan to reference this post for inspo for our main living room once we move in!

    If I won the giveaway, I’d love the chance to either freshen up our new living room or our master bedroom. For the living room, I love the “Trilogy Floor Lamp” & the “Astor Rug”. For our Master – we have been using the same IKEA nightstands since we got married 5 years ago (truly impressed they’ve lasted this many moves), and would love to replace them with the “Oxford 2 Drawer Nighstand” in weathered black.

    Thanks for sharing all your home reveals! Its been fun to follow!

  83. @taylormronan — currently shopping around for a new coffee table for our living room! We’ve taken on a TON of home projects in preparation for baby’s arrival in just 6 weeks. It’d be wonderful to get something beautiful to round out the living room.

  84. @liz_thompson98 I am moving into a new apartment to attend Grad school and I am looking for some new pieces to spice it up!!

  85. Fabulous post! Thank you for linking sooo many beautiful items! Your den is literally #goals. If I was lucky enough to win the giveaway I would use the credit to purchase items to accent our master bathroom that we just renovated! @mollieelizabell on insta

  90. I would love to refresh my living room / dining area and have more of an actual decor flow to it. I moved to this place right before having a baby and never got a chance to really think about the aesthetics of the room. Now that my son is 14 months I would like to give it an upgrade.

  91. @revaeschneider we just moved to a new home in Michigan with zero furnishings to start with. I’d love to grab some of the amazing art at Antidote! Stay well!

  92. We are moving to Houston in June and would love some more furniture for our living room. Instagram handle @paige.jimenez

  93. @amandanoleau love this collab as you and Danielle Moss are two of my faves! I’d love to use this for the new place we just bought! We can’t move in yet thanks to COVID-19 but I’ll be living there in my dreams until we do! Would love to use this towards our home (and it would allow me to envision what it will end up looking like until we move in)!

  94. I have loved those tables as a coffee table since you first posted them! I would buy that for sure. We have a very large one that just doesn’t fit in the space anymore.

  95. I love this post! This room is beautiful. My husband and I move into our first home next week and I would be grateful to be able to use the credit to create a welcoming and homey family room in our new home. My husband has lost his job due to COVID-19 and this would extremely helpful as we build a home together!

  109. I just moved cross country from San Diego to Maryland and have found myself searching your blog for moving tips and decor inspo more times than I’d like to admit! I was heartbroken to part with some of my favorite pieces which weren’t as practical to move but so excited to be getting to decorate a new place!

    I love your style, Kathleen! This is beautiful and has given me so many ideas. My husband and I actually live in different countries because I’m Canadian and he’s American. I am still waiting on my green card so I go back and forth. Right now, I’m sticking in Canada obviously because of the pandemic. “Nesting” and decorating our home when I am in Nashville gives me some sense of normalcy and calm. With all the setbacks we’ve had, it allows me to feel like we are building our home and life together even though we can’t always be together (we have been waiting over two years and now will be delayed even further…). So I would use this credit to purchase some things to add to our home, like maybe a new coffee table or dining room chairs! Thank you so much! Also love that this is a small business as we also own a small business that on top of everything has been impacted by the virus. Stay strong, everyone! xoxo

  119. Would love to put some finishing touches in my living room or get started on decorating my entryway space! Instagram: @linds_giles

  120. Love the room! And all your decor. Insta handle is @emilycsharp. My husband and I just bought our first home, and we are trying to fill it after living in small apartments with mainly ikea furniture.

  121. @christinadvorak I would definitely be using this to help refresh our living room area! Love your style and den so much!

  122. Hi! I LERV the whole scheme and vibe of this room and ya’lls home as a whole! My sister and I are always commenting on your style and are now working from home so we are trying to get two home offices in shape quickly. Since she will be going back to work at some point, we’ll be looking to use our space functionally later as a sitting room. SOOO looking forward to checking out Anecdote and trying to share it with any new clients as well (I just started my own Interior Architecture and Design firm while I finish up my masters specifically for that!) Cheers to happy homes and small business support to get us through this crazy time!

    Good luck to everyone!

  123. Ig handle is @simplybysuzy and if I won I would def buy the coffee table in your ig post

  124. My Instagram handle is erin_leblanc. My fiancé and I are currently in the process of purchasing our first home! Very exciting but also a very expensive process, on top of our upcoming wedding, especially considering I want to decorate everything! Would definitely put $500 towards pieces for a dining room, since we have never had one before! Love everything you’ve done with your new space!

  125. Hello!

    My IG handle is: @annasonnenburg

    If I won I would DIE over the dune coffee table!! Or maybe some new dining chairs?


  126. I would definitely use this to furnish our home when we move this summer! I have been following Anecdote since they’d opened (Danielle Moss is an inspo in her own way). Having one of their pieces would be DEVINE! 🙂

    IG handle: @michellehepler


  127. @smjacobs17 I am moving soon and want to give a new or refresh look to my living room!

  128. I would love to use the credit towards sprucing up my living room! Thank you for introducing us to Anecdote. Beautiful items! I’m on IG @sofiavictoria_e

  129. Love your space!! I would use the gift card to decorate our new home. We are closing April 10th (in New Jersey) and it’s a little scary thinking about everything we will have to do for the house with such limited resources. I’ve been waiting so long to decorate my own house and I can’t even wander a home goods until when?!?!
    Obviously there are much more important things to worry about right now than home decor, but it helps to ease my corona fears by getting lost in a decorating rabbit hole. Anything to get us through, right?!
    Congrats on your beautiful home, I hope you, Christian and Hudson stay healthy ❤️ My Instagram is @nickelunt

  130. This is SO. GOOD! obsessed with all of the B&W. My insta is @kristenharbin and I’d definitely refresh our living room space!

  132. @emilyewk

    I would love some art and accessories to style my kitchen and formal living room.

  133. Your den is a dream!!! I love it! My IG handle is @sincerely_sarita and I would use the credit to revamp my living room for a more modern look.

  134. @alexandrakirsten here! Major house goals looking at your post. I would spend your and Anecdote’s very generous giveaway on updating our living room. It’s the room we spend the most time in and the room that needs the most help. I just want to say thank you again for the giveaway. And shake off the haters! Your family is adorable!

  135. @emilyewk

    I would love to add some new art and accessories to my kitchen and formal living room and Anecdote has great ones. Thanks!

  136. Kathleen, the room looks amazing! Love all the details you put into it to make it a space you love. Looks like you are a professional decorator. Enjoy your beautiful new home!
    Christine (Marissa’s (stylecusp) mom.

  137. The space is GORGEOUS, Kathleen! This is my official giveaway entry – if I won, I’d spend the credit updating our master bedroom. We just moved into our first home last June, so we’re coming up on a year. We’ve been tackling it room by room. 🙂 Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos for inspiration and for offering this fun giveaway to your readers! xo

    Insta handle: @ebgabri

  138. Love how the den turned out! Super chic while still looking comfy! Thanks to you and Anecdote for offering such a fabulous giveaway. My instagram handle is @whitneymager and I’d love to use the $ to shop decor for my recently refinished built ins. I’m drooling over some of their vases and unique objects! Thanks again and hope you all are staying safe!

  139. @cmckeefrey
    I absolutely love the dune cocktail table! I would buy two and use them as a coffee table in my living room.

  140. I would use this money towards some new art for our new home! @madisonlarsen__

  141. IG: @The_Erin_Cross
    I could really use these $$$ to start sprucing up my master bedroom!!!

  142. Would love to add this coffee table to my new apartment! Need some texture in my room.

  143. It looks AMAZING! Currently going through all of your room reveals and could not be more obsessed. Everything is so pulled together and looks incredible! I would use the gift card to add artwork to our living room and dining room. we have nothing on the walls right now and I know it would make such a difference!


  144. @kksmith91 I would use the $500 gift card on artwork or beautiful accent pieces to complete my family room. Anecdotes has so many lovely things it will definitely be hard to choose what to pick if I should win!

  145. Love this design! The pieces and neutral color scheme are modern and fresh but hold a sense of effortlessness that will stand the test of time!

    I would love to update my bedroom with Anecdote by adding a cozy chair for reading and some new pillows!
    Instagram: cassandra.knowlton

  146. @lmmatherne – I would likely use it towards a reading room refresh or sprucing up some [bare] walls

  147. @suzandthecity – recently moved in with my fiancé and would love more art and trinkets to help tie each room together (and maybe have an excuse to replace some of his more masculine furniture!)

  148. Hi Kathleen!

    Love your style! My IG handle is @victoriaeleni

    We are moving into a new home in May (hopefully if all of this craziness calms down by then- fingers crossed!) and I have been taking this time at home to create some awesome vision boards and take some inspiration from different blogs and websites. I have been visiting your blog and instagram daily because I totally gravitate towards your style!

    I would love this giveaway and would put it towards my “chic living room” as I’m calling it. It’s going to be different than the family room or the guys room. It’s going to be a fancier living room that I envision sitting in with my girlfriends sipping champagne and chatting! I would love to put this towards artwork or a beautiful couch or coffee table!

    Stay well.


  149. IG handle Tracebugg, I would love to purchase your coffee table for our new home! Would make the perfect addition!

  150. The den looks great! I especially love the fern prints. My Instagram handle is @PattyAnnMarie1. We purchased our first home in October and are still trying to fill the rooms! Currently I’m focused on getting our F.RO.G (front room over garage) decorated. We have zero furniture in there now, but I’m hoping to make it into a game/relaxation room that can also be used as a guest room as needed.

  151. Love this room! Would love to use the credit to finish furnishing/decorating our living room and office!

  152. First of all, obsessed with that coffee table. Anecdote is local for me and I love their pieces! My dining room could use a little refresh and i’ve had my eye on some things there already! @jengarrett

  153. @ashleymhummel
    Would love to update my bedroom with some more masculine pieces before my wedding in May!

  154. I’ve been living at my parent’a house for way too long! I’d love to be able to get the femme pose artwork for my future new place. Fingers crossed!

    PS – love the space you created, gf.

    Lots of love,

    Heidy aka hpineda628

  155. Ahhh, your den turned out gorgeous! I would love this $500 dollar credit to master decorating my media stand in our living room. It’s empty and need some serious TLC with decor but books/candles/decor add up!! Instagram: @eosheehan

  156. Our master bedroom looks like a glorified frat house bedroom and it needs some MAJOR love. @e-for-vendetta

  157. I would use this $500 towards revamping the apartment my boyfriend and I just moved into together! @kelundeen on Instagram

  158. Our dining room could definitely use a refresh!!! Your den looks amazing!!!!

  159. I’d love to use the credit to help my mom and sis furnish their new apartment!
    IG: @keisix

  160. I’ve been enjoying your extreme home makeover and every detail that you have chosen. I would love todo the same in the apartment that I will be moving soon in july. IG: @danielapaolagv

  161. My brother and I just bought an investment property to air bnb, would love to use the gift card to help furnish! @solfar_solgood

  162. My IG handle is @missellenann and gosh, I would love to upgrade our coffee table! Beautiful photos btw!

  163. I think this is your best room yet- I love it! And I would love a shopping giveaway for my apartment. I’ve lived in the same apartment since I graduated college two years ago and haven’t been able to really decorate the way I want because of budget and the tight space. If I won the giveaway with Anecdote, I would be in heaven and finally able to make this place my home. IG handle: Alexandra_Archuleta

  164. IG: @KaitlynColbert

    Loooove this den. How can one space make me feel so fabulous yet so at home at the same time? However it is, I am here for it sister!!

  165. @maddiemm10 I need to redo my living room! I have nothing better to do during this quarantine than to spend money!!!

  166. Your den is BEAUTIFUL! I wish I knew how to put together a room like you! I’m on Instagram as kasey__ryan

    My husband and I just bought our first home together… conveniently right as my husband lost his job (temporarily, hopefully) because of coronavirus. I’m also a medical resident still working at the hospital so our lives are very uncertain And chaotic right now. We’re still going through With the house but will have to put decorating on hold for quite some time. Winning this giveaway would give us the ability to make a room of our home (most likely the family room!) feel like home and that would mean the world to us!

  167. Would use that gift card to snatch up that amazing coffee table! Love the seamless integration of black, white, and wood. A classic and elegant mix! Simply drool worthy. Gorgeous!

  168. So pretty! We’ve been working on house renovations and I’m dying to start decorating! @k_siv

  169. Love the contrast in this space! I’m @maggieeoconner on Instagram. We’re coming up on one year in our first house and I’m at the art phase of decorating and would die for some Anecdote beauty on these walls! Xo

  170. My friend is moving into her first home without roommates and is starting from square one! She could really use the gift card. My insta is @kebelk

  171. What a lovely den!! My IG is @michelelopezphoto and I just got married last month and my husband and I would love the credit to spend on sprucing up our new home together. Maybe some new living room accessories! ☺️

  172. I love your den. The completeness of its causes me major envy! I have a gigantic living room and really need a few more pieces to pull it all together! My IG handle is @lindsayermann and I would love some of those tables you put together as your coffee table!

  173. @sarah_clover hoping to revamp my den! My roommate is about to move out with most of our decor and I don’t want to be left barren Love how you work new and old pieces together. A lot of my furniture are antique/yard sale/Facebook I want to add touches to keep it a little more modern!

  174. @_mmt

    your den is so beautiful!

    i would spend the prize rebuilding/refreshing my home which was just hit by the tornado in nashville! my master bedroom and back porch/ balcony were all very damaged and could use the extra love

  175. @mari.bergman21

    Would love to spruce up my living room with new textiles, wall art, and other decor!! And new chairs!!

  176. Gorgeous home! Would like to probably spend the credit to change the tone of my home to a more natural feel. Love that table so that’s on my wish list.

    IG handle: _le.star_

  177. Your den is stunning! Would love the credit to use towards decor for my son’s (his name is also Hudson!) nursery. We are renters, so would also love something that can transition into a new space when we’re ready! @anmar1219

  178. With the credit, I’d like to change the tone of my office and give it a tidier look with beautiful chair and accessories.

    IG: _le.star_

  179. Love love this room. We are moving into a new home this week. Needs LOTS of refreshing 🙂

  180. @lfoxnelson

    Love love this room! Moving into a new home TOMORROW, it will need loooots of refreshing 🙂

  181. Would love to win! Just moved in to a “grown up” apartment! Need grown up furniture! IKEA just ain’t cutting it anymore :). IG: hlevin

  182. I’m obsessed with black and white. I love all the art you have and would totally use the credit to add flare to our guest rooms!

  183. Wow! I am in love with how you have styled each room that you’ve shared since I started following you when you lived in Southern California! I recently moved to San Fran (from Atlanta, funnily enough!) and would love to make my space feel more homey and “larger” by doing a bookshelf display with some pieces I already own, mixed in with some from Anecdote! When you’re in a smaller space, design vertically! 😛 The Anecdote website is so well curated, I feel like I could be well on my way to a thoughtful and unique arrangement of pieces with the giveaway gift card! 🙂

  185. @kacliburn
    Just off the top of my head- sawyer throw and fig candle!! May be too simple though

  186. Your style is so impeccable! Makes me want to redecorate our entire home! I would definitely start with the master bedroom though because it is our oasis and a place to unwind. I would try and better reflect that! 🙂
    Go Dawgs!

  187. I love your coffee tables! I would want to get the exact same pieces!! 🙂

    My Instagram is Lauracweaver

  188. Love anecdote and love Kathleen!! We are in need of a living room refresh with our eight month old about to be scooting around and walking soon, would love a new coffee table/ottoman situation 🙂 my ig is @rebeccasipe !

  189. Your similar items are far from similar. It seemed like you rushed your findings and posted them just cause. Also, why don’t you just post the exact dress and shoes so that if someone wanted the expensive version you wear they know where to shop?

    1. Because the shoes are over five years old and the dress is from a collection that was not launched because it was postponed due to the pandemic. I do my best to link similar items but if you can find something more similar, I’d love to see!

  190. Love this room! I would love this gift card to help me redecorate my living room. I LOVE your style and your home has inspired so much of what I do in mine 🙂 Instagram @jahoni219

  191. Jordanaturner – beautiful space!! I would purchase a coffee table or art for my apartment living room.

  192. Ok first let me say that I just am in love with the den! Second, if I were to win, I would probably spruce up my own den! It’s got some great hand me down furniture in it but obviously some new fun pieces would be awesome !!!

  193. I LOVE your house!!! Your vibe is the same as mine, and I want everything that you post!!!!! Insta is @nicollegagnon

  194. You did such an amazing job, Kat! Thank you for sharing Anecdote with us, I’m excited to start shopping there! The $500 would go a long way in our living room. We’ve been living there for over a year, and I’m still trying to piece it all together… but it’s been a process!


  195. Love this! Total inspiration for my living room redesign!! That shop credit would be such a huge help in making it a reality! IG: kelmcdizzle

  196. @genniefitzbarber

    Our master bedroom needs a refresh! We could really use a new dresser and night stands!

  197. _marguerite_

    I would love to refresh our living room. It is the heart of our home for myself, husband, 2 dogs and 2 black kitties

  198. Love all the bold black and white contrast! Our little one bedroom apartment is CRYING for a new area rug, and I’ve been dying to invest in my first real piece of art. What a treat this would be, I love @Anecdote! I’ve been following them since the beginning

  199. @Hannah_Markham
    Love all of the black and white high contrast! Our little one bedroom apartment is CRYING for a new area rug, and I’ve been hoping to finally invest in art this year. @ShopAnecdote is incredible, love what they’ve curated!

  200. Hi! I am a graduate student at Ole Miss with a huge family of 3 brothers, all married, and have kiddos so my guest bedroom needs a MAKEOVER. I love to see your reveals of your GA house to get some major inspiration to treat my fam to a nice vacation to see their favorite sister. Oxford is such a stunning town that deserves to be visited and a nice cozy place to stay makes it all the better. @parkerflowers

  201. My handle is CortneyPark. I’ve been looking for some stunner pieces for the sun porch in my new place. I need a VIBE in there!

  202. Hey Kathleen! Love this room so much!! I’d LOVE to win a shopping spree credit to Anecdote to decorate our new nursery!!! This is our first little babe (coming late June) and we are not finding out the gender—who knew deciding on all neutrals could be so hard?! Thanks for sharing your space, gives lots of inspo during this slower time <3
    Insta handle: @amyslooney

  203. I’ve loved watching how you went from a small space in SF to a larger space while continuing to design it with intention. I can tell that every space in your home has a purpose but is also SO PRETTY! Our dining room could really use some extra finishing touches as it’s currently the one space that feels forgotten – and in the worst way. It’s a tricky layout but even some art pieces could really make a difference! @meaganlynn4

  204. @justmetjess love this room what a fun but classy vibe! I would definitely use the credit towards that coffee table, it’s JUST what I need for my living room that’s been bare for almost two years ‍♀️‍♀️ Love the style versatility of the two pieces and that maybe it would be easier to move around for playtime in that room when needed (little babe under two)

  205. Love your beautiful home have gotten so many great ideas from you!
    Rug cleaner for natural rugs is awesome! I also got one of the cool hooded chairs from target to sit out by the pool and fire pit love it! It’s so funny how I found you. I am a flight attendant I was working with a girl who is from Minnie we were on a layover in Seattle I told her I was from Athens but recently moved to FL and she said you might know this girl (you) she is from Athens I knew of your husband I used to work for a plastic surgeon in town before I moved so I checked out your instagram and was instantly hooked

  206. @joi_mccoy I would love to refresh our sunroom! We recently moved into a new place and quickly encountered a hefty car repair, emergency dental work and now both of us having some uncertainty and chaos with our jobs during this Coronavirus update. Spending so much time at home has quickly shown me how a few things would help our house feel like a home or more of a sanctuary and our sunroom is the cheeriest place by far in the house. We haven’t really had it in the budget to add those touches and think this would be an amazing way to do it! It would definitely make this staycation more bearable

  207. I would want to spend the giveaway credit on a new couch! My husband has completely torn our current one up! It’s time for a new one.
    IG: @valenpoe

  208. I’m a senior in high school so I’ll be going off to college next fall and would use the $500 to select something for my dorm that I will be able to take with me to my first apartment in two years and then hopefully my first house whenever that will happen! I would search for a unique piece that would gain sentimental value to me as it would be my first ever furniture or decoration piece that I would outright own!!

  209. Love this room! My instagram handle is @allyeansor. We have a new home and would love to be able to be able to finish furnishing our living room or bedroom!

  210. My handle is @cherryallicola! We just moved in to our new construction home in July, other than our dining room nook, all the furniture came with us from our townhouse. I’m dyinggg to finish our front living/sitting room with the “real good” type of furniture. Haha!! I just want it to be as classy as your spaces, especially since it’s practically in the entryway of our home. It has to be the most perfect first look guests, family and friends see when they walk in!! This would be amazing to go towards those pieces! Ps. Thank you! You’re the best!!

  211. First off, I’m obsessed with your whole vibe. I currently have a white, black, and gold vibe in my living room and would love to update a few things to put some final touches on it. I would love to use the gift card for a set of lamps, side tables, and paintings!

  212. @nicholenatashagreene my husband and I are buying our first home and this would be perfect to get us started on making it our own ❤️

  213. I am in love with that coffee table situation! Would love to win as I am in need of a new coffee table1 would make a huge difference in my living room! @cbsingletary

  214. @emmaridge I would give it to my mom to help freshen up our living room. She’s the technology director for our local school and right now she’s been working nonstop to help find learning solutions.

  215. IG Handle: Melmarie2010
    Hi! My husband and I have been involved in a Bible Education program since the beginning of our marriage. We keep our lives simple so that we are able to move around the county helping with that. Our budget for furniture is usually pretty small because the cities we’ve lived in so far are pretty expensive (Cali, NYC, Minneapolis, Albuquerque). I’d love to be able to get a few pieces for our living room that are 100 percent something I’d want…not just something that’s affordable. Also thank you for always being such a breath of fresh air! You are one of the few bloggers I go to when I want to forget what’s stressing me out! Oh and Hudson is just perfect

  216. @atheenaspicer

    I want to preface this with saying I’m not complaining especially in the current climate of the world, not just our nation. However that said I got married in October and my husband and I finally found a house we’re closing on soon. With everything shutting down (as it should) we’re going to have to delay changing the flooring (carpet) in several rooms. The thought of living on someone else’s carpet ( and the have a dog) really is not ideal, but again I am so thankful for even having this opportunity. A new rug though would be sooooo nice not only in the interim but afterwards as well! Thank you for doing this giveaway especially during this time 🙂

  217. Love love love this room! My fiance and I recently purchased our first home and are drawing lots of inspiration from your style and decor (so thank you for the inspiration). I was especially drawn to the contemporary style of the Dune cocktail table – added bonus, my fiance’s favorite book is called “Dune” by Frank Herbert. Needless to say, after purchasing a new home and with recent events, our decor budget is a little tight. We would love to be able to use $500 towards making our new house into a forever home.

    My instagram handle is @mslahaye

  218. Love how the whole look came out, so pretty! I live in an apartment & would love to update my living room with some artwork & maybe even new curtains to give it a new feel!

  219. @cmeililly

    Since stepping into our yard is a short refuge from quarantine, I’d love to get some beautiful outdoor pieces!

  220. In the midst of these crazy times, I am moving in with my boyfriend (separate states nonetheless!), prepping my house to sell, and listing it! I would use the gift certificate to put some of my touch on his house as we work to make it ours. My Instagram is @hsnyder09.

  221. @andrea_farrar
    We are hoping to buy our first house soon! We need all the help since we still have furniture from college and hand-me-down furniture from our parents. Can’t wait for all new things!

  222. So many home decor items I love or maybe towards that stunning noir bed frame!

  223. Hi Kathleen,
    I thoroughly enjoyed your room reveal! It is the perfect balance of timeless elegance which I enjoy over “trendy” which can look dated quickly. I would love to win the Anecdote giveaway to update what used to be my children’s playroom, they are now 22 & 27, and create an inviting family room where we would enjoy spending time together as an adult family! All of the toys have been long gone however, it’s just been left with a tv and chairs. I would enjoy giving it a purpose and a cohesive look! Thanks so much for inviting us into your home and sharing your family:)

  224. Hi, @dbaldogo here! All this time at home making me realize how long I’ve put off decorating some of the rooms in our house that we moved into almost a YEAR ago. Already eyeing some of the art (hello Indigo Line Series) and the Marble Ripple Bowl is definitely on my wish list.

  225. Love your den! We are moving into a new house next month and need all the help we can get decorating the space!

  226. @ameliazepernick — LOVE the den, Kathleen! I’m so happy that you partnered with anecdote, I live in Chicago and have been drooling over their items for a few months! I’d spend the gift card on a console table for my foyer 🙂

  227. I just bought a new house and am currently remodeling some of it to bring it up to 2020 first time (solo) homebuyer over here! ‍♀️ could totally use some help!

    IG: marz_oh

  228. I want to use the credit to make my new home comfy for myself and 4-year-old daughter. Recently, my husband and I separated, so making a fresh start hasn’t been easy. I’d love to purchase things for my home that are reminiscent of the new memories my daughter and I are making. I also can’t wait to pull everything together in my house so that I can entertain family and friends in a loving space!


  229. I love the way your den came together. I just purchased my first condo and I’ve been trying to decorate too! I’ve been eyeing that exact agate box from Ballard for my built-ins and I’m looking to mix in some natural elements like you do. My ‘want’ list is a never ending, but I’m looking for one more piece of storage furniture and some sofa tables for my living room and fingers crossed things will look more complete. Thanks for providing design inspiration to us all! – @rachellitsky

  230. We are coming up to a proper move out of our city apartment into a house (familiar) and with so much space and a new style, need basically everything. 🙂 @ladybirdmkg

  231. Love your den! I would love to update my living room/den in my new home! Just moved from TN to TX. I’m on Instagram @kmjacks

  232. Den looks beautiful!! I love how you incorporated personal pieces throughout the space. My husband and I just moved in to our first home, I would love to put the $500 towards a new coffee table or chairs in our living room. My instagram handle is @kpaige_brown

  233. Absolutely LOVE this space! I’ve loved every room you’ve shared – your ability to curate and layer a room is impeccable – but this one is my favorite. It’s equal parts beautiful and cozy which is the balance that is always so hard to strike.

    We moved into our first home back during the holidays and only are just now starting to make progress getting it together, but man we’ve still got a long way to go and yikes it’s expensive!!! It all just adds up, so not sure what exactly this would go toward if I happened to win but I guarantee it would be well spent haha!

  234. I’m new to Anecdote but I have heard about them from several others recently and after seeing the pieces you bought for the den I’m a huge fan! I love the coffee table and would probably use the gift card to purchase this along with some accents. It’s hard to find something unique anymore and I just love how this brings interest to the room. My IG handles is Jess_L_King . Xoxo

  235. Your house is STUNNING and serious goals! I need some texture and accessories in my living room- its needs a little pizzazz!

  236. I live 20 minutes away from the store and would love to spice up my apartment! IG is @Jkudlacz

  237. Good evening!

    My name is Pavel, and my girlfriend realllyyy likes your page.I bought a house in Nashville back in August of 2018, and decorated a good amount of it, and although I like to think I have a good aesthetic, I’ve been trying to decorate according to her style/expectation a bit more. With the $500 I would buy the coffee tables in your post. We have never been able to agree on a good coffee table until we saw yours haha.

    Quarantined regards,


  238. I am (finally) finishing my residency program in Dallas and moving home to Sweet Baton Rouge! I am getting married in Nov 2020 and will be buying a house when we move back. So many big moments coming up!! I would love to buy a new couch to make our living room feel comfortable, yet trendy! Love love love your blog and posts. My insta name is @ssotile.

  239. @emilyjaneharmer – my boyfriend bought a house in May and has been remodeling it. I’m moving in, in a few months when it’s done and we are in much need of some “adult” furniture

  240. @jessica_pelt on IG. I’d use this for my living room and fill the built ins on either side of the fireplace. They need some help!

  241. IG Handle is kburger333 – would love to freshen up our den/living room and bedroom! Love your den! You’ve done an amazing job!

  242. IG @macybeth_ Love everything about your den! I just bought my first house so I am buying all new furniture for our common spaces!

  243. Beautiful den! If I won the giveaway I’d buy a new upholstered king size bed for my master and finally teach my 4 year old to stay in his OWN bed all night! @familyfiife

  244. Two of my favorites – you and Anecdote! I’m hoping to move out of my condo and into a home soon and would love to put this credit towards my living room, since that’s where I spend most of my time. IG: @michelle_gillispie

    Just moved from a nyc apartment to a home in Dallas! Have so much more space to decorate, but would mostly love to update our family room!

  248. Hi there!! This is stunning! I am a registered nurse and grad student. With all of the chaos currently going on with the Covid crisis, I’d love to be able to decorate our living room in the hopes of giving us a beautiful space to enjoy…Especially since we’ve been seeing so much more of it lately lol. #stayhome
    Thank you!!

  249. I moved to a VERY small apartment with my husband. We got married April 2019 and moved in together May 2019. I’m having trouble furnishing the place since I don’t have a job. It doesn’t feel like home which has really been affecting me these past weeks for quarantine. I really just want to feel at home and feel cozy in my home which is hard when only one person in the house is working.

    My Instagram handle is @nourleonas.

  250. @caitelallen I am dying to freshen up our great room/main living space! We have the basics but in that we spend so much time there I want to make it stunning.

  251. My fiancé and I just moved into a beautiful old home. We finally have a backyard for our lab! The space is quite a bit bigger than our last, and we are in need of some furniture to make it feel like home. Handle is @emily_healyoursoul

  252. To decorate our first home! We have a lot of rooms to fill since we’re moving from a tiny studio. Thanks so much for sharing this + everything else you do!


  253. Ah so beautiful! Would love to add some great lamps and a new coffee table!

  254. @maryellenmschultz

    I would love to refresh my living room! It is the room we spend the most time in as a family and it’s the first thing people see when they walk in the front door. I want it to be welcoming, warm, cozy, and beautiful!

  255. It’s redecorisolation time over here. We’re starting in the dining room and going counterclockwise. No room will be spared!

  256. @jsamberson I would love to use the credit to get something for our nursery or new chairs for my living room!

  257. @marykatherineh dying for art and vintage finds from Anecdote to update my bedroom shelves and wall space! So happy to have found them through you!

  258. I would use the credit to refresh my master bedroom! @kelseywatford
    I love this room! It made me want to redo my living room!!

  259. Every room reveal gets better and better! My Instagram is @justinedowns. I just signed a lease for a new apartment where I’m starting grad school in the fall and am starting from scratch! I would love anything from this store and this would really help in the wake of losing my job due to everything that’s going on in the world. Love that you’re continuing on as normal (as can be) during these times and continuing to support small businesses!

  260. Our living room needs an update!! After being confined in such a small space during this quarantine, I definitely need something to spark some joy!!

  261. Would love to refresh my office! It’s a random assortment of old furniture right now but would love to make it a true working space, especially in these quarantine times! Instagram handle: @brittaniemcleod

  262. Instagram handle: @brooke1023

    I’d love to spend my credit on updating my living room with a new coffee table and sofa!

  263. Just moved back to the states and have a new place, want to start with a complete update to my bedroom… need more sophisticated stuff! IG: KCheek1127

    I have loved following along as you moved into this house and all the spaces you have tackled. Saw in IG comments you were going for a more grown up look, I’m in the same transition!

  264. Your den looks beautiful! My Insta is @diysbymegid, I would want to give my bedroom a refresh!

  265. Love the reveal! So gorgeous!!! Well my pitch for the contest is that I’m in the process of moving in the Bay Area and just found out that my company will not be assisting with my relocation costs & the entire cost will come out of my pocket— an expense I was counting on shouldering solo. I’d use the credit to get a few items to make my new place feel like home since I will cleaning out my savings to move and won’t have much to spend after I move in. Take care and keep the amazing post coming. They’re so inspiring!

  266. @becca.gale I would use it to spruce up our one bedroom apartment my husband and I have been quarantined in for 14 days and counting! I just got laid off this week so I’ve been organizing a lot…we’re going to need a refresh after this!

  267. Great job!! Your den is gorgeous!! I really need help in all departments. I never knew my husband could be so opinionated about home decor! So if I won, I would spruce up our dining room while he is at work I’m on insta @mandaboo4. Stay healthy!

  268. Wow, I love how this room turned out! I would love to give my bedroom a refresh. I want it to feel more like my own little sanctuary. My IG handle is @emrosemonty .

  269. I would spend my gift card winnings to help turn our playroom into an Adult Sanctuary!! Much needed. @laurenlee116

  270. Love your design aesthetic! This is exactly the feel I want in our master. I would use this prize to update our master. We haven’t touched our bedroom much since we moved in after college. It would nice to have it updated like the rest of the house and not feel like a hodgepodge design.

    (IG: @LaurenMaiter)

  271. My husband and I are on two different planets when it comes to home decor…but we both AGREE that we love the coffee tables. HELLO! Is this happening, lol. Anyways, I love your home and everything you’ve done with it. Hope I win!

    Looking SO good!! I have been such a fan of Anecdote since they first opened. I have followed Danielle Moss, one of the owners for years, I love their mix of classic/traditional and modern, it’s truly all about the mix, which is why I love your home! I would use this giveaway credit to put it towards some classic living room pieces I’ve been eyeing on their website. I would like to give my living room a bit of a refresh with new art and a new sofa. Thank you for this amazing opportunity Kat and Anecdote!

  273. Beautiful post, Kat! I would definitely spend the credit furnishing my new apartment that I’m moving into next
    Month! Can’t wait!

  274. I love this! All of it. I would decorate my living room exactly like this! We did new floors and paint, bought a new couch… and that’s it I have no decor! Between nursing school and having a baby I haven’t had time to shop ‍♀️

  275. I LOVE Anecdote and am so excited to see this partnership! I’d use the $500 for some finishing touches like candles, pillows, and room objects to finish decorating my living room. @b_ank

  276. I love your taste! I have been following you for so long it’s been so awesome to watch your life unfold! @serafinaanne
