I never really “decorated” our little living space when we moved in because of all of the construction. Once we had Blake and I knew our friends and family were going to come over to visit him I figured it was time to throw something together.
After we repainted I started with this couch from Home Decorators Collection, an Ikea TV table that we had in our apartment, and a few frames.
The funny thing is…this couch is now in storage. I still love it though and when we move I’m sure I’ll use it again. This room was supposed to be a secondary living space but it turned out to be the primary living space as soon as we had Blake.
Anyway we decided on a sectional…
This picture is a little dark but this is what happened after one trip to Target. I walked out with the rug, lamps, and curtains/curtain rods.
Couch – Raja sofa in stone from Macy’s
Throw pillows – Pier 1
Rug, curtains, and curtain rod – Target
TV stand – Ikea
Paint (wall with front door) – Anew Gray by Sherwin William
Paint (wall with the TV) – Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams
I knew this was a little too dark for me but it worked for a few months. Then it was time to call Annie Sloan…
Ikea coffee table BEFORE Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
AFTER ASCP in pure white. I even painted the frames in ASCP and sanded them for a more distressed look.
Check out my post on using chalk paint here and here for using clear and dark wax.
I love the raised lattice pattern on the rug! Great find from Joss & Main.
I might switch out the DIY photo canvas for some frames in different colors and sizes. In this picture the wall is looking a little flat to me.
I can’t get enough of these colors!
Here’s a close up of the pillows we used in our flip
Joss & Main never disappoints! Love this Lucia pillow!
Oversized pillow from Target
These pillows came in a set of two from Target. I think the lattice pattern will compliment the new rug and stencil I plan to do in the dinning room.
Rug – Joss & Main
TV stand – Ikea (same as above) painted in pure white Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Hardware is from Suite Pieces in Huntington Station but you can find similar pieces at Anthropologie.
Throw pillows – Target and Joss & Main
I’m looking into some storage options for either side of the TV stand. I love these pretty baskets from Serena & Lily
Instead of an ottoman I’m thinking of using this pouf from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child
