I’ve mentioned before that one of my goals is to get our house (new to us as of October) decorated, room by room. I tend to get overwhelmed when it comes to all things home décor, but I think if I focus on one room at a time I have a better chance of not throwing my hands up in the air.
I’m going to start with our upstairs living room, because it’s a space that’s currently being under-utilized. As of now there’s nothing in it but a piano, a bookshelf, and an ugly side table. I’d like to turn it into an actual living space that can be used an alternative to our den / TV room downstairs.
While perusing my Pinterest boards, I found two inspiration photos that convey the color scheme and feel that I would like for the room.
Before I can do the fun stuff (buy furniture and décor) we have to paint and hang crown molding, but I can’t help but get ahead of myself and find a few things I’d love to add to the space. We’re painting the walls a soft off-white, the trim is white, and the floors are hardwood. Here are a few items I’d love to complete the space. I tried to find things as budget-friendly as possible, since that’s my reality. (I also see a lot of Craigslist and garage sales in my future…)
What does your dream living room look like?
