Our Home { Living Room Progress }


I've wanted to share our living room progress for awhile now!
But then July came around and that meant more attention towards beginning of the school year prepping. But finally, I found a little bit of time to squeeze this little post out and share what's been going on in our home.


We bought our house back in January | posts here & here | but I honestly didn't put much thought or effort into decorating for the first six months. With our gender reveal party back at the beginning of July, I wanted to kinda make it seem like we actually live here and make our house feel a little more cozy. 

Really the only "decorating" of the living room we did before summer was buy new couches and tables back in February. We purchased them from Ashley Furniture and they completely changed the feel of the room. The room is pretty big with tall ceilings, so the bulky furniture fits in there nicely, and fills the space really well.

My mom totally rocked it out one weekend and painted our living room for us over the summer, and I couldn't be happier with the color we chose. Anything was better than that icky builder's paint, and the newly grey walls make the room so warm and welcoming.

I definitely splurged a little on our couch pillows. Target has a great way of making your original idea of simple/easy decorating into a much more elaborate scheme - hence the 500 pillows that are now completely necessary.

We didn't make many changes, but the ones we did make totally changed the feel of the room. It's definitely one of my favorite rooms in the house now. We still have a few things to do to get the room completely "finished" but for now, I'll continue loving the progress we've made!

  16. What a beautiful space! I have to admit I would have felt that the pillows were a must-have item too! They give the area a pulled together, professional feel. With a baby on the way, you'll be happy you got the soft couches and pillows. This was a very inspiring post.
