I don't know if it's all the hgtv I watched this weekend, or maybe all the pretty posts by Erin lately, but I've had a serious itch to decorate. And what am I itching to decorate? My non-existent living room. Hey, a girl can dream!
This is my inspiration: mint, coral, grey, geometric patterns, quatrefoils, and glitter- because duh. I've always loved coral, and I think mint compliments it really well. It just so happens that they're are really "in" right now, so I guess I need a space to decorate before they go out of style! I think this scheme can really transfer well from bachelorette pad to adulthood (unlike all the hot pink stuff I have from college), so my decor will last me awhile. Quatrefoils are also really in right now, but to me they're timeless (right, sisters?). I will definitely squeeze them in wherever I can.
I love throw pillows on couches, and this picture matches my couch vision pretty well, minus the gold. I want grey couches filled with fun mint and coral pillows.
And I obviously want this to be one of the pillows.
I also believe that blankets are essential in every living room. This would be perfect in my dream living room, although I already purchased the materials to sew a coral/mint blanket. What? Someday I'll have a living room!
A sparkly silver monogram is a must!
I am obsessed with bookshelves. Obsessed. I love when they hold books as well as pictures, trinkets, and those little figurines with the feet that hang off. I love those little guys.
And I'm definitely gonna need these frames for my bookshelf.
I saw this quatrefoil mirror the other day, and I have every intention of going back for it. I'm not even sure why I left it there in the first place. I love the gold, but I think I'm going to paint it a matte silver instead. And then maybe buy another gold one for someplace else in my house ;)
I'm still dying for my own space, but all this brainstorming helped my decorating itch a little bit. How would you style your dream living room? If you've done a blog post about it before (real or dream) feel free to leave it below!
