It’s safe to say that your living room is probably one of the most utilized rooms in your place – it’s where you entertain guests, kick back after a long day at work, and curl up on weekends for Netflix binges. This frequent utilization of a space meant for ‘living’ is why I’ve never been a fan of those clean cut and minimalistic aesthetics. I want my home to feel like a home and my living room to feel like it’s been lived in. So when I design a space, I aim to surround myself (and my guests) with a welcoming environment, comfortable furniture, & cozy vibes.
My goal is simple: Design my space to resemble what my mom’s living room looked like when I was 10. It had wear, it had tear, it had a lot of shit; but when push came to shove, it displayed memories, it hosted moments, it had everything, and everything had its place.
To do this, I focus on 1) mixing colors, patterns, metallics 2) incorporating pieces of furniture from multiple different ‘aesthetics’ (meaning you wouldn’t find them all in the same display at Potterybarn) 3) showcasing vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces 4) accenting with just enough items to make the space feel cozy without feeling cluttered.
Anthropologie’s Land & Sky Buffet is the perfect functional accent piece – storage with added visual interest. (It’s like a safari in your living room?!)
The Chelsea Wing Chair from Society Social is the perfect accent chair for any living space!
Obsessing over this area rug from Mohawk Home – it sports an elegant floral pattern (similar to the previous pic, but unlike my rug, this one is still available for purchase!!)
The classic color combo + style of this lamp makes it the perfect accessory for any room – I can picture it sitting atop a glass end table in my living room or contemporary white desk in my office. Find it over at Society Social’s website!
Love this stool from Society Social and all of it’s fun, fury detail!
I’ve been eyeing this bar cart for approximately a year now. Society Social’s Sedgewick Bar Cart are what my hostess dreams are made of.
This WAS on my wish list, but I actually OWN this rug. It is absolutely one of my favorite purchases to-date – unfortunately, I see it as no longer available on Etsy (where I found it.) If you like this rug, I’ve linked a similar one in this wishlist!
You can find this funky coffee table, and many other one-of-a-kind pieces, for sale on Chairish (where designers buy and sell vintage, high-quality pieces!)
I love these laser cut cork tiles from West Elm – they’re a fun alternative to wallpaper and add another layer of pattern to an eclectically-cozy room.
