Happy Earth Day friends! I’m here to tell you that this post has nothing to do with the earth, just my living room, but does in fact happen to be on earth. It’s the first room you enter into, and where I’ve been posted up since moving in, at least till the other rooms are livable.
We’ve got alot to fit in this small room! My front door opens right into the living room, with the kitchen off to the right, and a hallway straight ahead. The living room has to function as a living room, foyer, and an eating space all at once. Click here to see more of the empty room as a starting point!
I don’t really have room for a tv, so it’ll just be a sitting space. So far I kind of like it, because I’m not compulsively turning on the tv when it doesn’t need to be on. No more coming home and melting into a mash potato.
I’ve already made some progress but I’ve got a long way to go. Here’s what’s in my brain.
I’m aiming for the living room to be a good mix of colors, textures, and patterns, but I don’t want to go overboard with it. See my whole house mood board so you can visualize it with me. Come on keep up.
I LOVE this room too (below)! It has lots of texture, with the velvet, leather, natural wood, and metallic, and it’s balanced out with some more subtle touches like the vases and mirror. Italian hand kiss*. It’s also on point with the color scheme I’m aiming for.
This one is nice and bright with the white walls!
I like how they managed to match the green couch with some red pillows, and the gallery wall is epic. And I love the simple, earthy decor in both of these!
Colors and Decor
As far as the color scheme, the walls are white, so I have some flexibility with the decor. Alot of the finishes I already have, like chair legs, lamp, etc. are black so I’m working with that too. I originally wanted a camel leather sofa with a velvet green or blue accent chair, but I ended up with the exact opposite, which is equally sexy!

My couch came with 2 matching pillows, but that’s too monochrome for me so I put one on my bed and the other one in the sunroom. I’ve been playing with some different combos of pillows, art, and decor, even though I’ll probably be playing musical decorations for like a year. Here’s a pillow combo I like:
I love natural textures so I would like to have some type of stone, maybe the coffee table?
I’ll post a progress update soon 🙂
