I am SO excited to share a tour of our living room with you all today! Trey and I moved into this house a couple years ago and it’s taken us a little while to finally get this room set up and decorated in a way that is super cozy, functional, and that we love. Hooray!
You can see what this room looked like when we first moved in, as well as how we had it partially decorated before in this progress report post. Structurally, the room hasn’t really changed, although we did decide to replace the floors last year (so they are lighter now).
Probably the thing that has WAY upped the cozy and functional aspect of this room is the furniture. As you might remember, I had been thinking about getting a sectional for a while, but I was having a hard time committing. I liked how big and cozy they seemed, plus the layout of this room just felt right for a sectional. But I wanted something modern—basically the opposite of the whole your-parents-basement feel. Our sectional (and that super cute pink chair) are both from Joybird and we LOVE them. The fabric we chose for the sectional is pet-friendly, because we allow our dogs on our furniture. And we’ve had the sectional for over four months now and it still looks brand new. And we LOVE all the space. Even though most of the time it’s just me and Trey, we like laying down to watch movies in this room. We’ve also had a few parties (Super Bowl and to watch the Grammys) and we had a bunch of friends over, so the space was awesome for that as well.
We also had a floating shelf installed along the top of two of the walls. I have quite a large book collection and I sort of love how this shelf holds all of them, with some room to grow, but the room still feels very clean and minimal and the walls still had space for some photos. We also have our projector sitting on the shelf as well, making it almost hidden in the room.
We added a dark green accent wall that is directly across from the couch area. This is also where our screen comes down when we are ready to watch a movie. 🙂
the DIY for the faux weaving that hangs above our couch on the blog soon.
We also have a mini gallery wall behind the couch that currently features pictures from our trip to Norway this past year. I’m going to share a little more about these pictures soon!
That’s pretty much it. It doesn’t feel like that much, but this room has come a long way since we moved in. See my empty house video tour here if you want proof. Ha. This is probably the most chill room in our house and we love it. Thanks for letting me share and if you have questions about where things are from I’m gonna link everything below but if I miss something just tell me in the comments and I’ll update it. xo. Emma
