Living Room Decor

I found myself sprucing up my living room yesterday afternoon, and before I knew it – I was completely switching things around. Anyone else love to move furniture in their spare time? ;)

A great decorating tip is to invest in those quality foundational pieces like a great coffee table, sofa, and chairs. Then collecting interesting objects and textile pieces to create a curated look that can be used in any area within your home.

This give you the opportunity to mix and match and creating interesting spaces time and time again! A collection of food art can become a beautiful gallery wall or be spaced out throughout your home. Textiles can rotate throughout your home for a constant update on your decor!

“The first step in decorating is selecting a color palette. Then, do your best to achieve proper scale and balance. With that, everything else will fall into place.”

Side Tables

I love adding a more contemporary side table into a room to instantly make it feel a little more modern. Look for clean lines and a quality material; however, don’t spend much of your budget on a side table – pillows or a rug are a better place for your money.

A great coffee table…

Oh the hunt for a coffee table can be long and hard. Finding the right coffee table dimensions can be tough! We found this one while at Round Top, TX and lugged it all the way home! Here are a few of my favorites available online:

Coffee table decor // When it comes to decorating your coffee table, think in terms of thee. I like to break the coffee table up into three sections and decorate each little space. Usually a stack of books, a tray, and a vase of flowers.


Don’t underestimate the power of a beautiful table or floor lamp. Adding variations of lighting helps complete a room!

Accent Chairs

Rather than two sofas in a space, try a few accent chairs. This helps break up the room and provides a cozy spot to curl up with a book or cup of coffee!

Shake things up with pillows!

Pillows are a great way to make things feel fresh! Try mixing patterns and colors to add interest. Don’t be afraid to break out of a neutral rut!

I love mixing patterns and colors together to create interest. While I love a neutral pillow look, I also love adding some charm with unique textiles. I sometimes feel like neutral is the easy way, it’s more fun and challenging to create something unique with a mixture of textiles. Here are some of my favorites!

A Relaxed Sofa

For a lived in look, opt for a relaxed sofa with a slip cover or single cushion!

We recently added a new sofa to our living room, and I love it! I adore the lines and slight curve of the sofa, and am enjoying the depth that the navy color adds. In our white space, it feels bold and adds a nice weight to the room.

The perfect transitional rug

This rug has been one of my favorites! Inspired by traditional Moroccan patterns, but done in a modern way.
