I am currently in the midst of a few home renovations and can't wait to show you the results! I thought that it would be fun to show you guys a glimpse of my living room, as well as a few ways to "copy" my style (only if you want to of course). I always have a fun time mixing some mid century pieces with new items and accessories to give them a whole new updated feel.
CREDENZA - I chose a rosewood credenza with a thick, rich, dark grain. Credenzas are almost always investment pieces, but you can find them reasonably priced and they will last you FOREVER. They can easily go in any room of the house or can transfer into any style of interior. I like to use credenzas instead of entertainment centers because they easily conceal those electronic eye sores that we all love to have. Below are a few credenza options that we have
COFFEE TABLE - We all love coffee tables. I know that mine doubles as a dining table a little too often when Chris and I get sucked into a new TV series (currently crushing on Homeland...).
PILLOWS - As you can see, I love adding pops of color with pillows! My good friend Shay is the designer and owner of Bunglo and I have her pillows in my home. She does such a fantastic job! I love the watercolor prints as they still feel natural in our and mix with the natural materials in our room.
BOOK CASE - I previously wrote a post all about bookcases and how to make them more interesting and visual. Our book case is an eccentric mix of design books, cook books and a few literary classics. It is always fun to add accessories that showcase your personality and add a bit of color. Did you know that you can now order books all in the same color?? Click here to learn more
RUG - Since we have a large open floor plan, I think that adding a rug really helps break up the space. I love the way that rugs can add in a quick pop of color while still being useful. I find almost all of my rugs at discount stores online like Gilt.com or Hautelook.com. The quality of the rugs that they send are always great and I love getting a good deal where I can. Plus, my dogs love to run around on the carpet but I am still not sure if that is a good thing or a bad one....
That is all for now! I can't wait to show all of you the office and guest bedroom. I think that the study might be my new favorite room in the whole house.
