A Few of My Favorite Things: Living Room Edition

Brian and I are in the middle redecorating the living room. What started out as a new sofa has turned into a full on makeover. Even though I’m all about instant gratification – we’re taking the process slow and purchasing items that we’ll love for years to come.

My style has definitely changed since I originally put the room together 5 years ago. I’ve transitioned from an ultra sleek, modern tone to one with a bit more rustic feel. I’m all about textures, grays, mustards and reclaimed wood that have a homey yet chic appeal. You’ll notice from my list that I am kind of obsessed with West Elm and Pottery Barn – I’m thinking I’ll soon be on a first name basis with the folks at my local PB.

As we’re putting the room together piece by piece, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things that we’ve purchased along the way.

1. I wanted a new throw for the new sofa and snagged this Cozy Throw from West Elm with a 20% code. It’s soft, quite durable and the dogs and I are absolutely smitten with the snuggle factor.

2. From the moment Brian and I walked into Pottery Barn, we knew this Industrial Tool Chest would make it’s way into our home. We’re just smitten with its aged appearance and ample storage space. It’s great for hiding away movies, video games and the extra remote controls that used to clutter up our media cart.

3. I’m all about Mercury Glass right now and these little votive cups were the perfect accent for our new coffee table. They have a beautiful antiqued finish that looks stunning with lit tea light inside.

4. I’m a sucker for throw pillows and ever since I found Nena Von on Etsy, she’s made my love for them all that much stronger. After tossing around several pattern ideas, we finally decided on this pattern for the couch pillows. We’ve paired it with this gorgeous flocked print for a striking combination.

Next up on the list is some artwork and a piece for the entryway! And I’m already contemplating a new dining room table!
