Living Room Reveal
I'm so happy to finally be writing this post. It's weird to me that this is one of the last rooms for me to finish with it being the most lived in of all our rooms. It's not like I didn't touch it at all, but the details took a back burner compared to the rest of the house. Now looking at the finished space, I get such a sense of calm & togetherness from seeing it all complete. I'm sure I'll change one or two things as our lives evolve with a second little, but to have the walls decorated and the space cohesive is so refreshing.
Like most of this house when we moved in, this room was dark and needed a major refresh. If you're new around here, we have paired every.single.room in this house except Addison's closet. No joke. Our home needed it and although it was so much work, it was what really started to bring this house to life. We are lucky to have so many windows in our home and all the character that comes with 100+ year old home. We wanted that to shine through and we really wanted to keep the character while bringing a boho, modern feel to the space. All of our big projects are completely which is crazy to think about because we have been working on the home for a 1.5 years. I think the only thing I plan to take on is changing some light fixtures out. Sounds easy enough (Kirby...lol).
Sharing all the details that go into the space, linking what I can and giving a glimpse at what it looked like before.
Couch & Ottoman
We've been loving our Joss & Main couch for over 3 years now. We would love to eventually get a new one, as we've moved on from grey tones, but plan to wait until we move next year to make it fit whatever space we have. This couch will definitely be held onto as it's a chenille fabric. easy to clean & super comfy. Our leather ottoman from Wayfair is brand new and something I've been eyeing for a long time. It's perfect for kids (our coffee table was always a hazard) and has been easy to clean thus far. It's made form one large foam piece inside which makes it more sturdy than a pouf, but just as comfy & perfect for kids.
TV Stand & Floating Shelf
Yes, I'm aware our TV stand is basically toy storage. It's what works best for our space & all in all, keeps everything organized into one spot. All 3 baskets are from HomeGoods and sorted out to help keep Addison's toys together (Duplo's in one, racetrack/cars in another and the large basket has some of his bigger toys). The floating shelf is super affordable, easy to hang and really helped close off the large wall behind the TV. Both artwork pieces are from Hobby Lobby. I loved layering them with a cute shot of Addison & simple vases to level it all out.
Basket Wall & Hanging Planter
This was probably the corner I worked on most. It took awhile to find & piece together the baskets. I hated having this wall behind the couch empty, so now having it done really finishes off the whole room. Using a small hanging planter and faux plants helped make it feel cozy. 2 of the baskets are off Amazon, 2 were gifted to me from Kirby's boss, the mirror is from HomeGoods and the smallest one Hobby Lobby. As you can see, really pieced together. It's more expensive to buy them as a pack so taking the time to do it myself made it more unique & more affordable.
