Earthy and Warm Living Room

This is my view throughout the day from the sink, :whine: At least it's a nice view!

My favorite thing about our floorplan was how open it was. Because of this, however, it makes it a little more challenging to decorate. Having a living room that is open to the dining room and kitchen, I wasn't sure what "theme" to go with that I wouldn't end up hating in 6 months.

So I decided to go with an "un-theme." Everything was going to be fair game, so long as it looked vintage-y, warm and homey. This would include a lot of neutrals with pops of white.

I will include as many details about the accents/where I got them and tutorials for things that got a new look.

Here we go!

 

Brown Blanket (Sam's Club), Blue Blanket (Pier 1), Table (IKEA, tutorial below), Centerpiece (Pottery Barn), Table Runner (Info Linked Below), Rug (Sam's Club)

Still love this table Re-do! It has done well with daily use.

Every year I make a photo 'Year book' for our family. I keep them on the second shelf of our coffee table, big crowd pleaser! (Shutterfly.com is the BEST for them!)

I decorate by using neutrals/white and height to find balance. You'll see that I usually do taller accents on the outside, shorter in middle, with a balance of lighter/darker. I'm OCD, I know. I also don't buy things for a specific spot, I buy them all and put them on a big table and then deliver them to where they need to be, it makes it much easier!

 

This is the view from the front entry way.

When Jerrod and I moved in together, he contributed about 3 items to our home. This picture was one of them. I LOVE this picture... It's a vintage beer label, blown up. Further reassurance that he has good taste. ;)
 


Not only is wine delicious, it also comes with corks that can be collected and used for crafts. So long as I drink wine, I will have cool glass pieces with a votive candle placed inside and corks surrounding it.

Doesn't it throw the prettiest light? I'm obsessed.

  1. A very interesting article, I never understood why people spend huge money on furniture, which is made of ordinary wood. Now there is a tendency for rich people to buy furniture in the classical style of the 18th century. I am a supporter of progress and prefer a more modern style, for those who love quality furniture and low prices, there is one shop lacomfy.com/bedroom-furniture that helped me with furniture in my house and office. The quality of the product is higher than its cost.
