My Dream Living Room

Art Piece | Papasan Chair | Blue Vases (similar) | White Cabinet | Spotted Pillow | Pink Pillows | Blue Couch  (couch we actually bought HERE) | Coffee Table | TV Stand |

I'm ending this week on the blog with a little home inspiration! My best friend and I are moving soon (more on that in a few months!) so we get to decorate a whole new apartment. Woo! I LOVE when I get to decorate a new space, so just for fun I decided to create a mockup of my dream living room. Since I love reading about home decor, I wanted to find out if y'all were interested in it as well. I'm so thankful for Instagram Stories poll feature because it's been so helpful in coming up with ideas that I know you will enjoy. I asked and 99% of you said yes to seeing this mock-up! This is just a rough draft of the living room space to come as we don't even have an apartment or accurate gauge of how much space we'll have in our new place. However, we do have a general color scheme and a vibe that we're going for.


The colors in our living room are going to be mostly neutrals like gray, cream, gold (yes, it's a neutral to me!) with a deep royal blue and blush pink as our accent colors. We also plan to have some black detailing (knobs on tv stands, possibly an accent pillow, etc) to really tie things together. The direction we're heading with the room is something I like to call rustic glam. I love the look of the farmhouse style (think Fixer Upper), however I can't ignore that glam is what I'm drawn to. I just love gold and marble too much, ha! A few of the pieces have more farmhouse-y charm than the others, for example the white cabinet, but the plan is to accentuate it with the more glam pieces: vases (the ones we bought are more glam than the ones here), gold bookends, chic coffee table books, etc. Although it will definitely take some trial and error to get the exact look, it will be so much fun getting there!

The piece that really got the ball rolling on our planning was the blue couch. Our current couch is olive green/gray, something that is not my style at all. We got it at a great price as juniors in college and it's extremely comfortable, but I just am not a fan. A trip to HomeGoods solidified our idea when we came across two beautiful blue striped vases. That was when blue became a focal point of our new space. It might seem crazy, but we chose these vases then chose a couch, all before we have even looked at an apartment. What can I say, we know what we want and just got on a roll! After that the brainstorming was non-stop and this mockup was made that same night.

I can't wait to share more home decor updates as our big move gets closer! I also just can't wait to share more details about the move in general, but I'm sorry that's going to have to stay a secret for a little while longer!

  7. I love the colors you've chosen. Until I had a big shedding dog I had a gorgeous navy velvet couch. I love the colors you can use with navy. (Actually I have 2 navy leather couches in my den.)

  20. Girl, gold is TOTALLY a neutral!! I really wanted all of the metal in my living room to be gold but sadly our theme lent itself more to a wrought iron look than anything. But I love your color scheme!
