Living Room Makeover

It turns out when you buy a home, the projects don’t stop! ;) Who’s with me sister?! One of our first projects when we bought our mid-century modern home was redoing the living room, but at the time we added new pieces of furniture, but never carved out time to accessorize the space. We just recently did a master bedroom makeover, and I was on a roll! It was definitely time for a living room refresh! I absolutely love our living room. There’s so much natural light that comes in, and the sunshine makes me so happy! But I wanted to swap out a few pieces I wasn’t 100% in love with anymore to really raise the bar. It’s amazing what you can do in an afternoon!

I wanted to have a modern living room that was not only keeping with my coastal theme, but was practical! Having pieces that made me happy was so important in general, but especially in our living space since we spend a lot of time in there! I was so eager to find pretty pillows that I could meet in the middle with Andy on. I was SO excited to find these fun patterns, textures and colors from Serena and Lily. If you’re new to Serena and Lily, you should follow them on Instagram. It’s the #1 source I go to so I can get inspiration for my own home.

I had a custom art piece by Blakely Made made for my living room to match the look I was going for. I have been in LOVE with Blakely’s coastal beach paintings for quite sometime. She does paintings featuring boats to dock-sides, and I haven’t found an artist I loved this much in ages. I knew a piece of her hand painted art would fit perfectly in with our coastal vibe modern home. Blakely is an amazing up and coming artist – from paintings sold at Serena and Lily to releasing an exclusive line of home decor at West Elm! I have no doubt Blakely is well on her way to becoming the next Gray Malin. When she releases a tabletop book, I will be the first to buy it!

If you’re like me, it is nearly impossible to get rid of all the clutter from the kids throughout the day! Easy solution! I found this Petaluma Basket that not only is the perfect size storage for our items, but its bamboo style is cute and looks like it belongs in the space! Now, we can fit everything away in one container and it can be left out because it is just SO cute. It’s also a great, simple way to keep throw blankets near by.

I wanted the throw pillows for the couch to match the light and airy vibe in the rest of the room. So I included this Lucia Pillow in sand to add a cute pattern for on the couch. I also incorporated these Perennials Performance Pillow and Sevilla Pillow Cover for texture. I love the look of these pillows, but what I love even more is that these pillows are stain-resistant! If you’re like me, that is SUPER important for my living space because accidents happen a lot! The three pillows together stack so well and they compliment each other perfectly!

Having the right living room décor to match my coastal and airy theme was so important, and I was able to achieve it! Having pieces that were practical for my family was what I was looking for. From having the basket for storage and throws and the textured throw pillows, to finding the perfect living room wall décor by Blakely Made, I love how everything ties the space together. I couldn’t be happier with the pieces I chose for the space! What an easy way to celebrate the everyday by making your everyday space a place you love to go to!

  2. Hello, just enjoyed your post on installing VCT tile in your beautiful 1960’s home – I’m about to do the very same thing using almost the same tiles (Armstrong white speckle lino squares in what looks to be the same size also but just a bit different) and also have a 1960’s house with midcentury furniture, and it’s worked out fabulous in your house I see! So thanks for sharing that, I’m guessing you carpeted in the bedrooms? Your kitchen looks so cool and architectural with the gleaming white floor and wooden cabinetry contrast. Anyway, just enjoying your site, and I love your amazing house! :)
