Get the Look: Living Room Decor

I started this “get the look” series earlier this year, and this week is Get the Look: Living Room Decor. It is a fun, moody, elegant look, and I am sharing how to get the same look in your home.

Here are the main elements used in the space:


This rug made my living room, and it can make your space too. It a fun twist on color and tradition and one of my most asked about items in our home.


This velvet tufted chair is pretty and great for conversation. It doesn’t take up a lot of space, so it is perfect in front of a fireplace.


This tufted mid-century sofa is a great way to add a little modern touch to your space.


This moody floral artwork is photograph, and it is by far one of my favorite pieces in our home.


I use these gold wall lamps all over our home. They are inexpensive, easy to install and add more light to any space. Read more on wall lamps HERE.

Paint Color

The paint color I used in the family room is Valspar’s Night View. It is my favorite deep navy paint color. It is absolutely gorgeous and makes for the most perfect sophisticated moody space.


I found an inexpensive source for all different colors of velvet pillow cases. I love adding velvet (go here to see my affordable velvet furniture roundup) to any space.

Living Room Makeover

See all the details on our Living Room Makeover. When I was asked to partner with The RoomPlace on a spring living room makeover, I was thrilled. Living Room Makeover with The RoomPlace Our living room was filled with our old home’s hand-me-downs, and they never fit our current space.  The furniture looked forced in the room, and the sofa cushions were ripped (which meant strategic placement of pillows and throws). While planning the makeover, I knew the room needed a couple of accent chairs and sofas.  I also wanted a bolder color for the space.  I fell in love with a floral shop display I saw when I was in NYC last month – a navy wall with fun pops of color.

Spring Living Room Makeover Design Board

Here is a photo of the living room before the makeover: And here’s the after: We have a “man cave” where we watch most of our tv, so our living room is mainly for entertaining (we purchased leather sofas in the man cave from The RoomPlace several years ago and have been so pleased with their quality). I wanted the newly designed living room to be a space that was elegant yet still comfortable.  Also, we often host larger groups in our home and need plenty of seating.

Roxbury Sofas

Two sofas would allow for maximum seating (verses the sofa and loveseat from before the makeover).  I chose the Roxbury Sofas in Gray.  I love the modern clean lines of the sofas, and I am always a fan of anything tufted. The sofas are a soft gray chenille fabric and are sturdy but comfortable. Keeping with the symmetrical look of the matching sofas, I wanted two chairs to place on either side of the fireplace.

Isabella Accent Chairs

I selected the Isabella Accent Chairs.  The chairs are elegant and inviting and work well with the sofas. The chairs have a more traditional look which contrasts nicely with the modern sofas.  The nailhead trim is a gorgeous addition to the already pretty chairs – especially the oversized nailhead trim on the sides of the chairs. Before the new furniture from The RoomPlace arrived, I added DIY paneled walls to either side of the fireplace and painted the walls in a deep navy (and I will be sharing the full tutorial for the paneling soon). My furniture arrived quickly, and I was incredibly impressed with the delivery and service. Set up was fast and the furniture was placed exactly where I wanted it. I love the new spring makeover for our living room, and in less than a week our family room was transformed into a completely new space. The furniture fits the room and invites guests in. Pops of color were added through pillows and accent pieces. The furniture gives us the maximum seating in our space without being overpowering. Our family is loving the new space and the comfortable furniture.

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.

Living 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!
