Bonus Room Makeover

I had the honor of partnering with The RoomPlace on our bonus room makeover. This is the space where we spend all of our time as a family, yet it’s the space you see the least – mainly because it just wasn’t very pretty. However, thanks to The RoomPlace, it has been transformed into a beautiful and comfortable space that is perfect for our family!

Here is a before of the room:

And here’s the after:


Since the room was all white, I added lots of color. I selected navy sofas and accent chairs and found the entire set at The RoomPlace. They were floor models which came with a fantastic price. I accented the navy and blues with greens, rusts, and coppers and golds.


I love the mix of textures of the seating – the velvet-looking sofas, the tweed accent chair, and the faux leather chair are the perfect combination. Try playing with texture – it adds a lot to any space.

The ottomans are from The RoomPlace Clearance Center, and they were the perfect solution for this space. We love having something to prop our feet up for movie night, but I didn’t want pieces that would make the room feel smaller. Since these gray ottomans almost match the floor, they disappear despite their massive size.

Every room needs some wood tones, and this gorgeous piece (and the basket) were also Clearance Center finds. We use it to store all the boys’ gaming miscellaneous.

The boys have a gaming center set up on the wall when you first walk in, and the media cabinet is also a RoomPlace find from several years ago (see more on that here).

The RoomPlace offers gorgeous home decor accent pieces like this amazing wood and concrete lamp. I fell in love with it the minute I laid eyes on the lamp, and the Clearance Center price sealed the deal. The side table was also a Clearance Center find, and I love the more masculine look in provides in the space.

Since there isn’t a lot of pattern happening in the sofa and chairs, I brought in pattern with some throw pillows and this gorgeous floral accent table – also a Clearance Center find!

These gorgeous brass trays are another example of the gorgeous accent pieces offered by The RoomPlace.

Get the Look

Since our items were all discounted pieces, I can’t link up to the exact pieces. However, I found similar gorgeous pieces from The RoomPlace and created a mood board and links if you want a similar look in you home:

The RoomPlace showroom is a fun place to find inspiration for your next room update. They have everything from traditional styles to rustic farmhouse to modern glam – and everything is set up in fun room vignettes.

I really enjoyed The Clearance Center because it’s more of a challenge since in requires some mixing and matching. The prices are amazing, and I will definitely come back the next time we’re looking to furnish a space.

I couldn’t be happier with the space. It’s classy but comfortable and absolutely perfect for our family. Thanks so much to The RoomPlace for this fun partnership!

Living Room Update

Today I’m sharing our living room update.  It’s amazing how switching a few things up can make a huge impact!

Living Room Update

We’ve lived in our house for a little over a year now, and we’re still trying to figure things out.  Our couches were bought for our previous house (obviously a completely different space), but we’re trying to make them work. It bugged me that you could see the back of the couch when you first entered this room.  Partially because it didn’t seem inviting and also because the tear from the top seat cushion was visible (which is why I have the yellow throw hanging over the back of the couch). Family Room 2

I hosted a party a few weeks ago which required moving everything around to accommodate a large group of people.  After the party was over, I started experimenting with the layout of the room as we were putting things back together.  I moved the couches so they faced each other – it looked so inviting and set up for conversation.  Also, it brought balance to the room since there was now a couch on either side of the fireplace.  The made my symmetry-obsessed self so happy!

Family Room

I also bought a few pieces for the room.

Chicken Coop Upcycle

Although it was interesting, my chicken coup was way too small for the room.

The chicken coup is dwarfed by my couches – which really aren’t all that large. I started the hunt for a coffee table and found this one.

Coffee Table

This was one of my biggest splurges for the room.  It reminded me of a lot of pieces from Restoration Hardware has but without the high price tag.  I found it on Wayfair. My other purchase was a jute rug since my previous rug was too small for the space. Living Room

Rearranging Furniture

Now the rug extends from couch to couch and connects the space.  I layered the smaller rug on top of my new rug for some interest.  The black edging on the rug adds interest and makes my TV (which was one of the only black pieces in the room) less of a focal point. Jute Rug

In my defense for trying to make a smaller rug work in the space, have you ever searched for an 8×10 rug?  They are expensive!  However, I found this one on clearance at World Market. I have a little bit of a problem with pillows.  I love them, but I also easily tire of them. Throw Pillows

I change them up a lot, but it’s definitely one of the more inexpensive ways to update a space. The “Let’s Get Cozy” pillow is from Etsy and the Greek Key patterned pillow is from Target.

Rearranging Furniture

Sometimes you just have to live in a space a while before you figure out how to make it work best.  I’m bummed it took me this long to rearrange the furniture!  Now, what other rooms can I do… Go create something!
