My living room gives me more grief than any other room in our house. I have fought the layout and cussed the architects more than once. It’s a running joke of how many times I have rearranged the furniture, including this last shake up. The room is long and narrow and our front door opens right into it, so I have always struggled with not having an “entryway.” Because this room has baffled me time and time again I end up buying things that maybe work but aren’t exactly my style, but I am putting an end to pointless buying. I am making it my goal to only purchase things that I love and that will help me work towards a house that feels very me. So until we can renovate or move I am working with my little pain-in-the-ass room and here are some simple updates I have in mind…
1// Adding in some new pillows. I want to find a mixture of those colors with blue and black being the base colors. I can always switch out accent colors depending on the season and right now for fall I am feeling the fuschia and grey.
2// I just feel like greenery brings life to a room. I want something that is either, fake and doesn’t look tacky or something living that requires little to no care.
3// Quirky accessories in gold including a mirror. I love that peanut storage box and I am currently hunting a mirror to layer with some art.
4// I have the perfect spot to toss that wooly rug. I need a little more warmth in the room.
5// More black and white. I can no longer live without more of this graphic combo in my living room!
I think if I make those conscience changes to the room it will begin to feel more my style and I will be able to ignore the layout issues. Do you have a room that makes you cringe??
