I had every intention of doing a project last night- Matt was going to be at class, then had some friends over, and I was going to have the whole night to myself. But then I turned on “just one episode” of Gilmore Girls (Netflix instant!), and suddenly it was 7 episodes later and I had eaten an entire Domino’s cheesy bread in my sweats under the covers and it was 11:00 so I went to bed. On the plus side though, I am extremely excited to almost be at the episodes where Lorelai and Luke get together because it is a long time coming.
ANYWAY in an attempt to be a good little blogger and not skip a whole week of posting, I thought I’d share some rooms I’m loving with you. I have a whole living room redo knocking around in my brain and these rooms are my inspiration.
First, here’s a semi recent look at my living room:
It’s just so…. gray. Which was my goal originally and so not my goal now. That black bench is broken beyond repair (RIP) and I have a new one picked out (on back order, hopefully I can get it soon). The black coffee and end tables were a poor choice in retrospect- black furniture and 4 pets? Helloooo visible dust and hair.
So here’s my inspiration…
(please pin from original sources)
I am craving white walls everywhere, and blue. So much more blue. I’m pretty sure the Sharpie Stencil Wall is on it’s way out to be replaced with a white accent wall that will match our front entrance and stair landing.
I love the fearless random dashes on the wall, the layered textures and fabrics, and the coziness/quirkiness of this room. My living room is a bit stark and formal, which was my intention when I first put it together but not the feel I want for my home now.
Color!! I need color in my life. The gray and white and black is making me sleepy and it needs a punch of energy. And with the color, I also am digging wood tones everywhere. I’m not a shabby chic kind of girl, but I have some good ideas on how to bring wood into the room (I’m looking at you, coffee tables)
Have you checked out Cuckoo 4 Design? I love her whole house- it’s bold and stylish and shiny and it’s awesome. No matter how much I want lightness and layers and texture, I still have zebra striped chairs and they’re not going anywhere. There’s got to be a good way to mix rustic and glam and I’m going to figure it out.
SO! There you have it. And if you’re looking for even more room/project/decor inspiration, check out all my Pinterest boards HERE.
