Grab your coffee, put on your favorite tunes (I had Bob Marley on for this one) and enjoy a glimpse at our sweet little bohemian sanctuary.

It makes for an excellent conversation starter (“do you have such-and-such record?”), bares wonderful stories (ohh those living room dance sessions during my college days!), and has created quite a space of community when friends come over to our house. (Wine and Leon Bridges just makes sense, doesn’t it?). I am all for living rooms, corners and nooks that emit happy vibes and good juju, and there’s no denying that a record player provides just that!

When furnishing our home, Blake and I disagreed on the vast majority of decor picks (…seriously, I wish I was kidding haha – nope, being totally honest here!). It’s been a struggle to figure out an aesthetic that feels calm and inviting, yet not too feminine or masculine (…remember my home office? I think he’s terrified I’m going to add blush pink to every room now, ha!), but the one thing we both completely agreed on was the decor surrounding our record player. A little greenery to liven up the space, hints of mustard (how fabulous are those throw pillows?!), a minimalist yet retro record stand (we are obsessed with this!) and a gorgeous embossed record player…complete with the cutest wooden speaker.

It’s also pretty awesome to play the same records that our parents listened to decades ago – we’ve both got quite a collection of albums passed down to us. I had zero idea that my parents loved show tunes so much…I learned that when my mom gave us Mama Mia, HAIR and A Chorus Line…while Blake’s aunt gave us some wonderful classics like Dean Martin and The Beatles. Blake and I are following suit by scooping up current albums so our own kiddos (one day!) will have a bit of what we grew up with. I added Beyonce to our collection (…we all knew Blake wasn’t going to pick that one up haha), and he’s added The White Stripes, to name a couple.

Remember when I mentioned we spent last weekend plant shopping? We had so much fun picking out our precious succulents – and how cute are those geometric planters? We are definitely digging this low key, cozy look! …Not to mention, I may actually be able to keep these babies alive – feeling good about my green thumb these days…(knock on wood, ha!).

Ps. That sweet poodle pup is named Louie and he’s my sister’s dog (…and I loooove him dearly!). Blake and I have been watching him for a few days while she’s out of town…and I’m secretly hoping Blake has loved having him around as much as I have…and will cave and agree to a puppy…dreamin’ big over here, ha! I’ll keep you updated on that one.. 😉

Do you have a record player? I can’t recommend them enough! Lots of joy from this thing – excited for the memories it’ll help create in our new home!

    Hey girl! I’m actually about to buy this Crosley player from UO. Did they by chance give you any sort of promo code/deal? Just thought I’d ask 🙂

    • livvy says:

      Hey girly! Ah, I wish they did but sadly no! It’s a gorgeous piece though – we had the smaller version (in baby blue) before and the embossed one is seriously BEAUTIFUL! Definitely livens up the space and keeps it airy and cozy! I hope you love it!! XO

      Hey Adelle! It’s from Urban Outfitters but no longer available! Maybe keep checking their site – they often bring back some of their older record player stands! Hope that helps. 🙂
