If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’ve mentioned that I’ve been in the summer slump! Life has been a little tough lately and I just haven’t been in the mood to create or re-decorate which means very little blogging for me. The truth is, I love making things and decorating and get so much joy out of it but I just needed a break from it all. The good news is…I’m now rested, inspired and ready to create new things and do some redecorating just in time for fall…my favorite time of year!
I spent this last weekend moving things from different rooms and restyling my living room and I’m excited to finally share it all with you! I had picked up a few new things from Ikea while I was in Atlanta but other than that, I just shopped my house which means a fresh look for a little price! I think this is actually the first home tour I’ve done of this room so it’ll give you a better idea of our open living space!
Let’s start from this angle from the entryway/hallway with guest bedrooms, movie room to give you an idea of our large space. I loved this floor plan because it didn’t have a designated breakfast area which gave you flexibility of how you can use the space. The flip side is it also makes things a little challenging to arrange and utilize the space. Until a few months ago we had the couches turned to separate the “living area” from a “sitting area” on that far wall. I never loved it and one day moved things around and wow did it make a huge difference! Now we have one large living space that is open and we wondered why we didn’t try it sooner!
My desire for our home was for it to feel warm and welcoming and LIVED IN!! Yes, I love the glamorous homes with white and light furnishings but the truth is….we spend a lot of time here and our life can be messy and I’d rather not worry about it. The dogs come in with muddy paws, they eat in here (as you can see) and we have friends or small groups over and we want people to kick their feet up and eat and drink and feel at home.
I’m going to do my best to share ALL the sources which will be challenging since this is a large open space and we have a lot going on in here but here goes!
