Living Room Style

We are slowly, but surely making our house a home.  This month marks three years since we bought and moved in to our first house.  We LOVE our house, but it has taken sooooo much longer than I imagined to get things how we want them (or should I say how I want husband is fine with whatever).  We've painted a few rooms and done some little projects here and there, but I still have so much I want to do.  I mean, it took me nearly three years to finally fill the blank wall above the TV with this DIY Starburst Mirror!

The room we spend the most time in is our living room.  I have so many things I want to do in this room including paint, curtains, a new rug, and new furniture.  New furniture will be a big expense, so that probably won't happen soon, but I do want to keep that in mind when decorating the rest of the room, so that the furniture will fit with the rest of the room's style.

I recently found out about the site called Chairish, which is an exclusive curator approved, online marketplace for vintage furniture.  Our living room is small, so there is not a lot of room for big pieces, but we do want to enough seating for when we have people over.  I would love to find a fun chair that fits in out living room better than the one we currently have.  That's where Chairish comes in.  They have so many great, fun chairs to choose from!  I had a hard picking one to incorporate in my living room style board, but I did it :)  Here is what I am thinking for our living room:

I want something light and comfortable, with little pops of color here and there.   It's so hard for me to make up on my mind on things I want in a room, especially big pieces.  I'm hoping to slowly pull it all together over the next year or so, since I finally think I know what my "style" is.

Is decorating your home a long process for you too?  Or does it come easy for you?  If it comes easy for you, tell me your secrets!! :)

  1. we're just over 2 years in and still decorating and designing. I haven't gotten brave or committed enough to paint yet!

  2. So pretty!!! And decorating is 110% a PROCESS! xx

  3. I've been in my house for over 4 years and I still don't have any finished rooms. It's definitely a long process, plus I'm not made of money ;)

  4. Oooh I love that rug - it would go so well with your mirror!

  5. It takes me forever to finish decorating a room... and even then, it's never really finished! hah! I love the starburst mirror, and I adore that rug! The pattern is beautiful.

    xo Always, Abby

  6. There are still so many things I want to do in our house - built in bookshelves at the top of the list - not sure when that will happen! The sunburst mirror looks awesome. I love the things you've picked with it, too! Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  7. We have also been in our house for three years and I still have a never ending list to things I want to do, and sometimes I feel like we haven't changed a thing since we moved in, but looking back at pictures, I can definitely see the progress we have made and that's what keeps me motivated. I'm excited to see how your living room turns out!
