So throughout Facebook I’ve shared bits and pieces of our living room. It’s fun to share the different elements that make it our own.
So here is the entire living room, each wall and piece.
Within, I’ll go through the different things I would change and add if this was a home, not an apartment. Being limited can sometimes be annoying, but for the most part it looks like I wanted!
Rug: Urban Outfitters
Coffee Table: Hobby Lobby
Couch: Value City
Pillows: Ikea & Target
Ideally, I would love for the couch to be planted against the wall, but due to the layout and where our cable jacks were the couch makes a makeshift wall for the living room. I usually like a more open concept, but such is life in an apartment!
*See previous blog post for all the details on our simple gallery wall*
For some reason, I’ve been unable to upload the full picture of our music corner, so check out my Facebook for that photo!
Record Player: Urban Outfitters
Accent Blanket: Anthropologie
Basket: Target, Nate Berkus collection
This little corner rests on a family trunk from my great grandfather. It’s cozy and warm and spices up the random living room corner perfectly.
The media corner features our dino decor!
Media/TV Stand: Vintage shop
Dino Pallet Wall Decor: Hobby Lobby
Gold Lantern: Target
Vases and Candles: Hobby Lobby
Gold Runner: Etsy
Dino Head Handles: Hobby Lobby
Industrial Shelving Unit: Ikea
Wedding Guest Book Globe; Hobby Lobby
Wall Decor: Hobby Lobby
The rest on our shelf are a mixture of wedding decorations, our many records, and books.
Of course I wanted to add the cute photo of our pups, plus it shows off the rug even more!
Now onto the real question, What would I change if this was our home?
- Change the carpet to hardwood floors. I want a home with lots of character
- The main wall would most likely be painted an accent navy, instead of using the decals
- Overhead lanterns instead of globe lights
- The neutral paint tone with be a light beige or tan instead of stark, bland apartment white
- Get rid of the gross apartment slider blinds. I kept these hidden in pictures, but instead of blinds I’d use light, airy curtains.
Stay tuned for the next room display! Our sweet little master bedroom is easily the next one I want to shine!
