Seattle Townhouse Changes + Coffee Table + Furniture Sale

Hello there! Kylee here! It’s been awhile since I stopped by to chat about my Seattle townhouse, so I thought I’d say hi and let you know I’m still here. :)

Seattle Townhouse Changes + Coffee Table + Furniture Sale

We bought our townhouse four years ago now. While we still really like living here, we’re always open to change. In fact, there are quite a few potential changes and updates around here that I’ve been wanting to tell you about!

What hasn’t changed:

While I feel like I’m always tweaking things around my home, one thing I can say that hasn’t changed in the entire time we’ve lived here is this trusty coffee table. My mom bought it at 5 years ago and she gave it to me when we moved in. When you’re just starting out (and anytime, really!) it’s great to find a few pieces you like that you know will last for years, but that don’t cost a fortune!

This is actually on a crazy good sale right now during their big , so you can get it for just $111.99. I KNOW! That is an insanely awesome price (and I found a LOT of other things I like on sale that are just as amazing, too).

I love that World Market offers such a big bang for your design buck in price, function, style and quality.

You can see some of my favorites from the indoor furniture sale . I have several items in my cart right now!

The coffee table is still in such great shape after all these years, too. It’s super solid and wears well, so you’d never know we use it all the time for many of our meals (since we don’t have a dining table!).

What is always changing:

One thing that seems to change quite often in our living room is the wall behind my sofa. I feel like my biggest home decor struggle is always art. I’m pretty picky and about it, so up until this point I have put temporary things in my frames like wrapping paper or pieces I painted myself.

Recently, I decided to switch it up and turn this wall into a gallery with some art I have been collecting. What you see here is still in progress–I’m not quite happy with it just yet so stay tuned because it’s probably going to change again. ;) Do you have walls like that? One of these days I hope I’ll get it just right and it can stay that way. But then again, change is fun, isn’t it?

What I’m thinking of changing:

One big project that I’m seriously considering is a kitchen makeover. I’ve actually been thinking about it FOREVER, ever since we moved in. Our kitchen is very dark, so I’d love to lighten it up. A kitchen remodel obviously won’t be quite as easy (or affordable) as changing out a gallery wall or rearranging furniture, so there’s a lot to consider. I’ll write another post sometime soon to share the makeover ideas I’m mulling over for the kitchen. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it (you guys always have the best ideas!), so stay tuned.

What big change could be on the horizon:

We’d eventually love to buy a house, we’d love to have a bit more space and a bigger yard. That’s my long term dream. But with Seattle being as crazy expensive as it is with so few houses for sale, finding one we’d like (and could get) seems like an expensive and daunting process.

In light of that, sometimes we think about staying here in this townhouse for another five years. If we stay, I’d definitely want to make this townhouse more of what we want it to be while we live here. Townhouses sell at premium prices here, so thankfully resale value isn’t a huge concern to us. Even if the market went down in the next few years, we’d be OK with the types of updates I’d want to make.

What changes I’ll be sharing with you soon:

Loving where we live has been the key motivation in any change we’ve made so far, and those we will make going forward. I’ll be back soon to update you on some master bedroom changes I made recently, as well as to share my upcoming office makeover and my kitchen makeover inspiration and ideas.

Meanwhile, you can find me on Instagram !

What do you seem to change the most at your house? Or what would you WANT to change if you could? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Welcome to Kylee’s Seattle Townhouse tour!

Hi friends! I’m back! And so soon, can you believe it?! I’m determined to share here more and also determined to get more done on my townhouse. Since I recently updated you on my living room and new sofa (you can catch up on that post here if you missed it) I thought I would show you around our townhouse so you can see how it looks these days, plus update you on any future decor plans I have.

I didn’t do much “styling” so you get to experience it as it really is–a work in progress! I’ll also try to share some behind the scenes videos and photos on stories over the next couple days so you can get a better feel of the layout and things I didn’t show on this post!

My home is ever evolving, as I’m sure most are. We have such a mix of things that have been handed down to us, along with a few things we have purchased on our own over time. It’s always a bit of a challenge to mix the old with the new and work with the style of the home we have, but I kind of like how everything isn’t always cookie cutter.

Our entry is pretty much the same as the last time I shared it with you, minus a few coats and shoes now that my sister has moved out. My staircase gallery wall is mostly IKEA frames and I think it’s due for some updating. I plan to trade out a couple frames for some thinner/sleeker ones and finally get around to adding some photos of our new pup Leo, considering it’s currently full of photos of Bella. Poor Leo, classic second child problem I suppose ;)

I don’t think I showed you much of this corner where my bookshelf lives in my last post. I’ve had the shelf since I was in middle school (!) and it’s gone through many paint changes. It has become a bit wobbly over the years, so I will probably need a new one at some point. The shelves could use a little styling and we should declutter it a bit, but I never can seem to let go of books. You never know when you want to reference something or reread an old favorite. I may work for the company that makes Kindles, but I’m still an advocate for good old fashioned page-flipping!

Keeping it real, this is probably one of my least favorite corners. It’s an awkward angled wall that makes arranging the room very difficult. I just recently borrowed those from my mom until I can figure out what exactly I want in this room. I randomly put them here (facing the sofa) but decided I like how it takes attention away from the fireplace and TV. Because, UGH–that shiny black fireplace coupled with a big, black TV is just a sad, dark abyss and not something I want to call attention to. I’m trying to figure out if there’s a creative way to cover the hole but STILL have the TV for when we want it…any ideas?

It kind of reminds me of my mom’s old fireplace. Isn’t her makeover beautiful? It’s inspiring me…

The gold shelf is an IKEA hack. It’s , spray painted gold with on the top and bottom shelf. It was quite an upgrade and very affordable!

Just a reminder of what the other side of my living room looks like!

My kitchen is great and quite functional, but I’m not in love with the overall brown-ness or the shiny, black (impossible to keep clean) counters. I haven’t decided if we will change anything though because we know we don’t want to live here forever. What is here is great quality, so I’m not sure it’s worth the investment to change it. The last owners replaced the backsplash, which I’m happy about because it is a LOT better than what was there before!

We don’t have any space for a dining table, so my husband Lance and I often end up eating on the sofa (I know, I know), but lately we have been making it a goal to eat at the island together more often. Eating at “the island” sounds almost like a romantic dinner destination, doesn’t it?

I took this photo right before Courtney moved, so here was my before she took her Nespresso with her. It still looks pretty much the same today, minus her  I’m not bitter about it. But I may have to get a new one because I’m missing my easy push-of-a-button morning coffee! PSA: you can get organic and recyclable coffee pods! I switch between or .

Our master bedroom is currently in the middle of a transition. We recently upgraded to a king sized bed and mattress, which I can tell you more about in a future post (organic latex–we love it!). The bed takes up most of the room now, so we have very little room for nightstands. We need to be able to open the closet door on the left at least halfway, ha!

The navy nightstands (seen in this post) went to my sister’s, so we are using these little tables while we are waiting for to arrive. I just ordered them and they are the perfect size! There is also a new ceiling light just sitting in a box, waiting to be put up. We’ve never changed out a light fixture before, so any tips for not getting electrocuted are welcomed ;)

Once we get the nightstands, we will say goodbye to those lamps. I’m thinking a blue one would be nice bring the blue out in the rug or maybe a task light? Also, there’s a lot of gray going on, so I’m considering painting the walls, which sounds awful. Have I mentioned I hate painting? I do.

Sigh, Leo is just too much. Our dogs rule the house. Thus, the king-sized bed!

Sweet Bella, always looking for the coziest and safest hideaway.

He loves staring at himself in the mirror and basking in the diffuser.

A couple snapshots of our guest bathroom. That shower curtain is a recent find from  It looks like it’s sold out, but they do have some similar ones!

So, there you have it! Our little abode. I didn’t show the powder room (it still looks exactly as it did here). I also didn’t show the guest room or Courtney’s old room as they are both completely in transition since she moved out. I’ll update you on what we do with those spaces when there’s more to share, and show you more in stories soon!

Until next time!
