TRANSFORMING OUR LIVING ROOM WITH MAIDEN HOME / THE LOVELY COTTAGE


About 3 months ago, J and I decided it was time to give our living room a little refresh.  Not only did we want to update our furniture, we wanted to lighten up the entire space and add a few more seats, as well.  Our living room is the first thing you see when you walk in the front door, so a clean, minimal vibe to set the tone for the rest of the house is exactly what we were after.  


After a few months of searching for the perfect thing, I finally found Maiden Home.  I had never heard of the brand before, but the moment I was taken to the home page, it just spoke to my soul.  (Literally, the couch on the home page is the one we chose!)  The clean lines, bright + airy space, yet cozy layers + fabrics, were all exactly what we were looking for.  The more I learned about the brand, their beliefs and their process, the more in love I became.  I was immediately drawn to the Dune Sofa because I love the slipcovered look and scatterback pillows.  It's such a perfect fit for our neutral, french farmhouse style and I literally couldn't get it off my mind for days.  Shortly after, I laid my eyes on the Hayes Chair and fully took it as a sign that this brand was a match made in Heaven for our little cottage.  The matte walnut wood is beautiful and the cowhide with the tie-back detail gives our space the chic, French-flare we were looking for.


After deciding on the two pieces we couldn't live without, I ordered complimentary swatches from their website. Within a couple of days, I had all 4 swatches of the fabric colors the Dune Sofa is available in, as well as an example of the different wood colors/tones.  We were pretty sure khaki was the way to go for our space, but having the swatches at our fingertips gave us the assurance we needed to move forward.  Before we even placed our order, I had an email in my inbox thanking me for my interest and asking how the brand could be of service.  Any questions we had or decisions we were on the fence about - answered by a real person, without even having to ask for it.  I am all about customer service and that non-pushy, simply helpful email felt like such a game changer.


After placing our order, the countdown began!  All of Maiden Home's furniture is crafted within 6 weeks and delivered free of charge.  They send you updates throughout the entire process each time a step is completed, too!  I loved being 'in the know' on what was happening on the back end - the communication is on point.  The brand also has a lifetime guarantee on every single piece and 30-day returns.  If you're not in love, they'll come pick it up, simple as that.  Which, let's be honest, you will be - so that's not a concern, but between the return policy and lifetime guarantee, it might give you a little extra confidence when purchasing investment pieces for your home.  


Finding + purchasing furniture for your home is such an intimate thing.  It's what you walk by each morning when you wake up, gather around when hosting friends + family, relax on at the end of a long day, and live with for years to come.  Especially at this stage of life, we're investing in pieces we know we'll love forever and truly want designer quality at an exceptional value - with a brand we believe in.  From the collections and fabrics to the customer service and the process, Maiden Home was flawless to work with.  We're so in love with our new space!


Be sure to take a look at all of the beautiful collections on Maiden Home and order a few swatches for yourself!  Also, stay tuned -  we may or may not have another project in the works and I can't wait to share it with you!
