Making an Apartment a Home with New Living Room Decor

Happy Monday everyone. Did everyone have an absolutely fabulous weekend?! We were kind of all over the place but Sunday we got to setting down & clean up shop to get ready for a crazy busy week. Bu today, we are talking about something that I couldn’t be more excited about: our new living room decor.

A couch was the last thing that we were really needing after we moved in the spring. We were still hanging onto my first couch I got from IKEA when I moved to LA 6 years ago. Not cute. After years of wear & tear, it got to the point that I actually hated sitting on it & would spend a lot of the time sitting on the floor.

We’ve had our eyes peeled but with saving for a wedding we decided we would hold off until February when the new furniture designs are usually placed in stores. Then Chris stumbled upon this set at a great price & we decided all of our planning was going to go out the window & we were going to buy it right then & there. (By the way…. I was pretty much jumping for joy in the store that we were finally getting a new couch!!)

I felt like our living room finally made sense. I tied in the gold throughout the room with these decorative accent balls to add a pop of color on our burlap runner & this ornamental lamp we picked up from Target. I painted the pot to place our Jade plant in so that it matched the monogrammed burlap letters on the wall across the room. Add these plush pillows, blankets, & a little life with our flowers & there you have it. Our new living room.

This table was an amazing gift Chris made for me for Valentine’s Day this year. By putting together these six unfinished apple boxes from Home Depot or Lowes, he was able to make a little space between all of the boxes. Sometimes we leave the box empty & it makes for a great place to store remotes. But right now we have some little fall decorations to make our room a little more festive. We go back & forth with deciding if we want to paint the table or leave it as is. What do you think?
