This week on IG I shared a few images of our living room and had so many great questions on styling and purchasing. You guys – you seriously make my ENTIRE week when you send me these sweet little messages asking for my opinion or where I found something. I am by no means a professional interior designer ** I wish! – but I absolutely love styling homes and making spaces extra pretty. I first wanted to write here to say THANK YOU – and second to answer any sourcing questions on this space in our home – and maybe offer a little design inspiration too!
I’ve mentioned before here and over on IG that I rarely pay full price for anything – check out my post below for a few tips on how I make this happen. It for sure takes some patience, budgeting and planning – but definitely pays off in the long run so I can spend a little extra in other areas of my home.
Pottery Barn Comfort Sofa – these are slip covered in white and absolutely amazing to throw in the wash. So far we haven’t had anything NOT come out of them – and it makes me happy to actually see when they are dirty and need to be cleaned. Olive Green Velvet Lumbar Pillow, Amaro Pillow Cover Set, Amalfi Moroccan Pom Pom Pillow, – I love these Woven Nooks sets, they are great quality, affordable and making pillow styling super easy. Manilla Hammered Barrel Coffee Table, Chunky Jute Loop Rug, This is Home: The Art of Simple Living book, Wood Bead Garland. Coffee table essentials – tray or bowl to corral remotes and coasters, design book and decorative beads.
Our TV cabinet is no longer offered from Pottery Barn, but it’s from the Benchwright Collection if searching – and I’m linking their current entertainment center here in the same finish. The pictured house plants are a monstera leaf in the white pot and a fiddle leaf fig in the terracotta. Both from local nurseries. The pretty Two Chickens painting is by a local artist – I’m linking his website and the faux deer mount is also out of stock from West Elm, but linking a similar option here.
Wind chime, mini-macrame wall hanging and cactus are all from Target, Madera Modern letter board – I have the 8 X 11 size in hickory and the natural sea grass floppy basket. My rug – also from Target is out of stock – linking a super similar option here. I LOVE the black and white – and the tassels of course. The iron horse head hooks are also from Pottery Barn – but about 10 years old – and not available anymore. Heartbreaking, I know. However – here’s a few other options that I love – H&M Home wooden hanger, Pottery Barn cast iron hooks and All Modern Ophelia wood hooks. The Paulowina Wood vases were purchased at a local design shop here in Utah – but after some internet searching, I could only find them in stock here. These vases are so versatile – I move them around my home all the time and they are always easy to display. My entry way table is linked here, nothing a little gold spray paint can’t change! A favorite design tip – grab a couple of design books and use them as decor or to add a little height and dimension on your entry or coffee table. If I could suggest just a few entry way essentials – a table, cabinet or bench, rug and two to three pieces of decor you love – just this will get you started or be a complete look.
When putting together this room – (let’s be honest, STILL putting together this room – isn’t style ever changing and evolving?) I really wanted it to feel cozy but stylish, inviting – and someplace you want to be with family & friends. Our front door opens to this room – and we have an open concept with the kitchen, it’s important that everything flows. Thanks for reading friends – happy, happy weekend! Xoxo.
