Take a tour of our living room with some touches of spring added for a fresh feel!
Welcome to our living room, it’s small but mighty! This room adjoins our kitchen, gets the best light in the house, and is also the entrance out to our patio, so it get’s a lot of use. Honestly, this room lends itself to spring because of the paint color alone (Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue). So I just added a few pops of green and natural elements to complete the feel.
For a long time this room stumped me because of its awkward, narrow shape. We originally had a small love seat facing the main wall in here (the one the hutch is on now). It really cut off the room and disrupted the flow, but it seemed like there was really only one way to arrange the furniture because of how small the room is.
One day, while I was staring at this space, I had a lightbulb moment – why not turn the furniture towards each other to create a conversation area? Looking at it now, it seems kind of obvious, but I think it’s a really good example of how we can get stuck in a rut in our homes. We’re so use to seeing something a certain way, it’s hard to imagine it any differently. So try thinking about how your home (or a room) can better work for you. Try out different layouts and don’t be afraid to fail – it may take a few tries to get it right!
The tassel blanket was the one item I picked up from Target’s new Opalhouse line. I did a review of my favorites here, there were quite a few great bargains!
DIY alert: If you’re love the wood/sea glass bead trend but don’t love the prices (who wants to pay $180 for a strand of oversized beads?!) try your local craft store. I bought a bag of raw wood beads and some rope at Michael’s for under $15 and made the one you see on my coffee table. So easy and affordable!
I’ve found that adding small details, like these blown glass jars, is an easy way to incorporate a lighter feel to a room for spring or summertime.
What about you, what are your favorite ways to add a touch of spring to your home?
