Alright! After the tour of this sad room, here are my living room dreams and plans:
The first one is putting a mural behind the sofa. I fell in love with this wallpaper at a furniture market a year or so ago and keep thinking it would be such an awesome conversation piece behind the sofa. Now, to talk my husband into it… (p.s. this is a picture of my bulletin board- isn’t that floral wallpaper just dreamy?!). This corner of the living room is where we hang out at night and it gets so dark. I’d love to add some accent lighting- sconces or a lamp would be good.
On yesterday’s post I explained that the living room is too heavy. It gets great light in during the day so I think that is why I went with such a dark grey, but I think white would just be such a breath of fresh air.
To the right of the sofa, I think a wall of ledges would be good. I’d add some framed art/family pictures (see my Pinterest board for a visual). Also, like I mentioned yesterday, I would like to replace the coffee table with a tufted ottoman- a storage one might be good. Or I could possibly DIY one…
I’ve been wanting to add a large potted plant in my living room for awhile. Here are the criteria- must be pet and baby friendly and not too expensive. I need to do some research, but hopefully I am not searching for the holy grail of plants here.
I love the Persian and over-dyed rug trend right now. I am a traditional girl, and these rugs are perfect because they are traditional updated. If I do go for a mural though, I don’t want to do a huge look for the rug (not everything needs to be the center of attention, right?), so I am loving the Loloi rug Nyla. (major heart eyes, right?!)
Over the console, I would love to thrift a hutch and replace the mirror. I have so many pretty dishes I would like to showcase, this might be the perfect place. I also might add some molding on this wall to break it up a bit and tie it into the entry
Those are my plans! Would that mural not just be the best?! Come back tomorrow for a tour of the nursery! Spoiler alert, it’s good!
