It's long overdue since our living room needed an update, but like with many bigger projects, you have to be patient with time and savings before your ideas come to life! I've been thinking about this room for over a year, I even wrote a couple blog posts on planning a living room refresh and picking the perfect rug for your room last year in preparation for when I was finally able to transform this space.
Currently, the best way to do describe the room is "hodge podge". Our couches and tables are from my parents and grandparents and they don't exactly match. Our rug is from my old office before we made that into a bedroom and our TV stand is my first every DIY project that although may be cool, doesn't fit in with any of the styles or furnishings in our home now.
With Black Friday deals around the corner, I've put together some ideas for how I want this room to come together. Since I live right by the water, I wanted it to have a coastal feel but in a very classic and minimalistic way. I also have a few family pieces that I want to incorporate into the overall design, like the coffee table.
I love the combinations of neutrals and wood. Scrolling through instagram and Pinterest is always a great way to find inspiration for how to combine colors and textures. Here are a few I love and helped guide my design in the planning process.
I put together a couple concepts and am still trying to decide if I should keep it all neutral or add some blue. What do you guys think? Option 1 or Option 2?
Let me know which one you prefer in the comments below! And be sure to follow along in stories as I get all the pieces in and make this space feel like home.
