I’m doing it. I am legitimately sort of making over my living room. I am not buying all new furniture or anything like that but I am trying to make it more homey and also fit my husband’s and my style better. I was over at Lauren’s house last week and it is so easy to shoot blog photos there. The reason is because there are little styled vignettes all around her house. I am certain that such styled areas would not work in my house thanks to 4 very busy little boy hands, but I think that is key to having a house feel more lived in. It is also a way to showcase your style. The items above would totally make my living room feel like “me”. Trust me, my husband will be represented too. He likes all this stuff. He just doesn’t know it yet. Wink.
The thing I noticed about Lauren’s house is that she layers different textures and colors and it appears effortless. A stack of books is the perfect vase for a tray topped with a picture frame and candle. A mix of throw blankets make the couch seem super inviting. And plants. She usually has fresh flowers or succulents in and around her living room. I love how it feels (although all of my stuff is going to be fake since I have a black thumb and flower allergies.)
