Our living room is the culmination of our mid century modern style meets antiques meets boho. The biggest thing was to paint the room white, and then we could bring everything in. We started the room with our large Joybird sectional and we worked around that. When figuring out the layout of this room we basically had two options for which wall would be the TV wall. There was an in wall plug for the TV already, on the wall it's now on, so we decided that made the most sense. Plus the way we have our couch allows for an "entry" area into the house where we put a long rug, a mirror and plant hanging on that wall. We also painted the wall dark blue, to balance out the wall directly across from it and to have a statement color in an otherwise all white room. We then purchased an ivory rug from West Elm that we later returned due to its never ending shedding problem (our dog doesn't even shed, so I for sure don't want a rug that does!), and also realized that our style is more colorful, no matter how hard we try and stay neutral. We then added colorful pillows (the dark blue ones are covers I made from fabric we used at our wedding as runners), added some of my photography and a wedding photo to our wall around the tv, along with a dream catcher we had at our wedding too. The tv stand is part of the dining set we got at an estate sale for a killer deal ($300 for everything!), and most of the decor on top of it is from antique stores. The chair in the corner was a score for $60 at a local thrift store that my mom and I recovered using Joybird fabric. One of the last things was to find a coffee table. Since the space is a bit tight, we needed a curved coffee table and I wanted marble. I searched Craigslist and found this amazing coffee table (with ugly legs) for $90, and Adam welded new legs and we painted it a grey color. The other final touches were the corner light we won on Instagram from Triple Seven Home, a side table from a thrift store, and a super cool mid century modern wood piece we got a few years back down in SLO. We splurged on two things in our room, the rug, which we learned a good quality rug doesn't shed, will last longer, and it's such a focal point of the room. And the other thing we splurged on was the couch, but the customer service and the way they stand behind their product makes it worth it. We had an issue with the couch cushions about 10 months after purchasing it, and they gave us a brand new couch for free! I finally feel like that room is complete, and I love relaxing there, hanging out with friends, watching TV, and snuggling Sawyer on the couch!
