Living Room Love

~Living Room Love~

I couldn’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting a matching pair of sofas facing each other in my living room. Maybe since early childhood, when I saw a pair in the front room of my mom’s cousin’s house… I think hers were a pastel blue. But I remember always behaving in the “no-no” rooms because I wanted to be allowed in there. I wanted to be in the nicest room of the house, surrounded by pretty porcelain and fancy furniture! That pair of pastel sofas made me feel like such a lady. I wanted to wear a pretty dress and have a tea party on those sofas. 30 years later and I’d still love that tea party! ….29 years later I got my pair of matching blue sofas. I said “yes” to these gorgeous velvet pieces that same day I said “yes” to my husband’s marriage proposal. What a day?! Dream furniture and an engagement ring all in one afternoon!

I wanted to try the “L”-shape arrangement as I had imagined when designing the space. So it wasn’t until after taking down Christmas decor a couple weeks ago that I decided it was time to try rearranging my little living room. 5 minutes later and, just as I thought, it looked so lovely and felt a little more formal, yet still cozy! I especially love how this arrangement flanks the fireplace and encourages conversation. Hubby loves it too since he gets to be King of the Castle in his leather recliner, front and center for prime pigskin programming. He got me a new Nikon D5300 for Christmas and I’ve been playing with the settings and practicing my photography skills. Wanted to share some snaps of my living room love, pretty plants and decor details that create this modern-classic styled space. It’s important for everyone to have their own Living Room Love since it is typically the most used room of the house and where your guests should feel most comfortable. Found furniture I was obsessed with and styled the space into a cool, calm and cozy place that makes me love living in my own life everyday!
