As I've mentioned before, I am in the process of finishing the living room. I LOVE our living room, it is my favorite room in the house and is definitely the place we spend the most time.
I've made a few changes this week and I wanted to share them with you all.

Here is what the living room looked like in February:

And here it is now:

The changes are subtle, but I love them.

The first (and most obvious) change is the new painting that is above the mantel. I found this at Ross for $49.99 and just had to get it. I also finally hung a mirror that I've had for several months over the little dresser in my favorite awkward corner. Excuse the sticker that is still on it--I haven't felt like using Goo Gone yet!

Love, love, love it.

The lovely little sliver of my reflection-HA.

Here's another picture of the vignette that I talked about in this post.

I also bought my most favorite lamp ever at World Market and put it near our couches. It seems to fit the style of the room a little better, no? Glass lamps are the BEST thing ever.

So here is the living room as of now. I'm really loving it, but I'm still getting used to the bright colors of the painting. I'm worried that they are too bright...what do you think? Does it fit? I can't wait to keep working on this room, I have so many ideas!

The next few goals in the living room mainly consist of getting more stuff on the walls and making it all feel more "home-y". I'm excited to work on the wall that the TV is against. More details to come!


  1. Looks awesome! Where did you find that mirror? I LOVE it! Also love the glass lamp... is it from PB? love. love. love.

  2. Love the painting! I would like to find something similar. In the fall I love driving to the mountains and seeing the golden aspen trees.

  3. love it! it looks so airy and so neat!

  4. oh, it's gorgeous!!!! I love the colors and the cozy/modern decor. It's very light and bright. Fantastic job!

  5. I REALLY love the painting over the mantle. Reminds me of when I was young & lives back East, the birch trees there, LOVE LOVE them. Where did you get it??

  6. I LOVE the painting. It gives it a little punch of color and you mimicked it with the flowers on the coffee table as well. Very beautiful!!! It is so peaceful, warm and inviting.

  7. Awesome room! I love the painting and think that it works perfectly with the overall look :-)

  8. beautiful room!

  9. I've been searching for inspiration for my "dream" living room and THIS is IT. Wow, any chance you could provide the name of the sofa brand? I love this room! Thank so much for sharing.

  10. What is the paint color that you used? It is so cozy and bright!!!
