My favorite part of any remodeling and/or moving process? When they big things are done and I get down to the nitty gritty details—decorating! As you guys have heard, the living room was the most hotly debated room in our home. I was SO relieved to finally have everything settled and get to start the decor part!
Once we finally agreed on a paint/trim color, and finally agreed to disagree on couches, we started layering in pieces that I had been holding onto for months. My favorite splurge I’ve gotten? This AMAZING gold-flecked cowhide. I’ll admit it—it cost the same as my couch! But dare I say I love it more? :O
While we were picking out our couches at Weirs, I found this amazing coffee table. It’s unlike anything I’ve owned before. It is round and brass and was on clearance since it’s a bit scraped on the top. I don’t mind that one bit! Ya’ll know I’m crazy about that patina stuff! 🙂 As a bonus, it makes a very solid, loud drum when my friends’ kiddos come over. 🙂 It keeps us all entertained for quite awhile!
The wall with the amazing built in bookshelf backs up to the kitchen. Eventually, we may take it down to open up the kitchen, but for now I have to admit I’m loving storing some books and pretty things down there. It also has a super cool, top-secret function…I’ll be sharing more in an upcoming post. But for now just imagine it there to hold my favorite reads.
Just for fun, I made a gif of my decorating steps. Check it out! 🙂
The biggest thing this room really needs is art. I am debating between a gallery wall and a large-scale focal art (as you may remember from here it’s one of my favorite trends!). Stay tuned! 🙂
