Good morning! This weekend is Labor Day long weekend and I thought it would be a great day to post all about our current living room design and decor we used in finishing this space!
This is the longest I have ever spent finishing a design for a living room we have lived in, and mainly that was because I was TIRED from moving so much and a little stumped with the floor layout of this room. It’s long and narrow with a very small entryway attached to it. We don’t use the entryway, so I wanted to utilize all the space we had and ended up flipping our sectional around to face where the entry would technically be. I also pulled the sectional forward quite a bit because the room was long, the tv felt so far away with the sectional pushed against that back wall and this way we had room to add in a small table.
We use the table for making crafts on, colouring at, and as additional seating when guests come over! I am all for following design rules, but sometimes you have to break the rules to make your space work for you family as was the case with this living room.
Because I keep most of our decor neutral I really wanted to add in extra texture with the decor and I ended up using two rugs to achieve that goal. The bottom is the perfect neutral jute area rug ( would be great for any room in the house) and the top is a woven wool rug with hints of light blue and green. Although it is “ technically” a coloured rug I still consider this a neutral and would put ANY and all colours with it! Think more blue grey then bright blue, and pairs well with both warm and cool tones.
