Hello! A while ago, I posted a kitchen home decor post, and got a lot of positive feedback, so I decided to do another. Today I am sharing my decor in the living room.
Our living room is pretty much the main part of our house. It is a very large room, and it’s where we spend most of our time.
We have this giant tv cabinet that takes up almost a whole wall that my dad built for us. I asked him to whitewash it (which I am obsessed with) and he built it perfectly and exactly how I wanted.
So, the first thing I did was to find a rug for the living room that I liked. I knew I wanted it to be tan, white, gray…(no bright colors) so that it would go with everything.
This is what I chose, and I think it fits in perfectly. It is very large – 8×10 ft, so it fits under our couch. It is very soft and I think the print is perfect.
After looking at pictures online and some inspiration from my friends (Kristina!) I decided to do a gallery wall above my couch. I know that the key to doing a gallery wall is to have things that are all different shapes and sizes, and not to make it look perfect. This is what I came up with.
So, the main piece here is this giant map. The frame is a rustic gray wood, and the map looks kind of old and worn. My husband and 6 year old really liked this, so we used this as our main piece.
On the left side, I found a pair of white antlers with some flower detail on them.
These are really a nice piece because they look kind of country, but the flowers make them pretty, too. I love how the unique shape looks on the wall. Underneath those, I found this photo frame that is a rustic wood color with room for an 8×10 picture.
I decided to use a picture that we took in St. Lucia on our honeymoon of the Pitons. This photo adds some color, but is still neutral. I like how it looks like the picture is floating in this frame.
On the other side, I knew I wanted a shelf to put little things on.
I found this small white shelf and added some little faux succulents, and a silver metal N that has a pretty lace like look to it.
Below that, I found this set of 3 gold circle shaped mirrors. I love how these added a different shape to the wall, and I feel like they give a bit of modern/industrial feel.
I am so pleased at how this turned out, and it really adds interest to the room.
The fireplace is the first thing that you see when you enter the front door, so I really wanted to spruce it up.
On the top, I have a neutral colored floral canvas print, and a few birdcage looking lanterns. I love these, and they are both a distressed white color. I also have a candle and some little faux flowers.
On the bottom, I have a little basket with a blanket and a pillow that reads “let’s stay home”. I think it gives a nice cozy feel to the fireplace. Lastly, I have a big galvanized metal lantern that I just put a big candle in.
That’s it for my living room! I love all of the neutrals and think it looks so cozy.
I hope I helped you find some inspiration for your home!
