sprucing up the living room

August 14th | decorating

This is the room where we spend most of our time. It’s connected to the kitchen. It’s where we play and watch movies and snuggle. It needed some love and freshening up–actually there is so much more I would like to do, like painting the built-ins, and getting lighter sofas, but for now, these small changes make it feel new and fun.

All I did was add a rug we’ve had in the garage and some colorful pillows. I freshened up the mantle and added a red bow to the bust. And I tidied up a bit too, of course! Small details but it feels happy!
I love getting to peek into other people’s homes, don’t you?
