Living Room Makeover – The Inspiration

Well, hey there!  I haven’t blogged in a hot minute…  let’s just jump right into it, shall we?


For Christmas this year, Skyler and I are buying ourselves a “new living room,” aka a couch and coffee table.  With this new fancy furniture comes the need for some new decorations!  Let the inspiration commence:

I am not 100% sure how I want to decorate my “new living room,” but I know for sure I want it cozy and rustic feeling.  Thank GOODNESS for Pinterest and the awesome inspiration it has sparked.  Can I pull off all of the awesome ideas that pop up in my head?  Probably not.  Can I execute getting some of these decor items I find for cheap?  I’m sure hoping so!  Here’s some of the things that caught my eye when I searched “cozy living room” on Pinterest:



I will DEFINITELY post a before and after post of my living room probably around the New Year, as that is when we’re most likely getting the couch.  I just cannot contain my excitement to get started on the process.  Also, if anyone can suggest a place I can find a rug similar to the one in the last picture for cheap, like preferably under $75, that’d be great.

What is your go to style when it comes to decorating your house?  Modern?  Rustic?  Sound off in the comments below, I’d love to hear your ideas!
