Hi again! Today I'm showing you some living room updates we made! Every corner of our house is a work in progress and I'm quickly learning that even when I say something is "done" I mean "done for now"
If you are on Instagram check out MyTexasHouse who has a house that is GOALS but also continually is changing things which just goes to show that even when your house looks perfect you can still want to change things up!
So today is all about our living room updates. I finally convinced Tim to hang up our Etsy sign from Pallettes and Peonies. I saw this originally on The SunnySide Up blog and absolutely loved it.
We debated where on the wall to place it but ended up going just about center. I am considering putting a shelf on either side of the sign but I haven't fully decided yet. I just don't want it to look overcrowded, I much prefer a very simple and clean look.
If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments!
This is what the view of it looks like from the kitchen. Very simple but at least there is something on the wall now!
The other new update in our living room is our new coffee table....
Instead of the bulky, wooden top coffee table now we have a smaller, bright white table. I love that it matches our small table from At Home.
I picked up this new coffee table at Wayfair and I'm so glad it helped pull the room together.
Sophie just loves to jump in every picture that I take of the house :)
I think this coffee table fits the space much better than the other one did. It also is a lot lighter weight and just brightens up the whole living room.
I also pulled Sophie's old bed out of the living room. Girl doesn't need two beds in the living room right?! We also picked up a new bin from HomeGoods to hold some of her toys because her toy bin was overflowing! Little spoiled pup.
I don't feel like this room is complete at all despite getting a new rug, new table and new wall art in here. I definitely am considering another small table and lamp in the back corner by the side of the couch. Like I mentioned before I am still figuring out if I want anything else on the wall. I also still want to change out the fan, which is a project for another day.
We have been living without coasters for awhile in fear that Sophie would eat them. While at HomeGoods I found marble coasters that are super heavy. I know that Sophie won't be able to eat them and they look great and fit into the aesthetic that I'm going for.
While I look at the pictures I can see how badly our couch needs to be cleaned, I desperately need to order a steam cleaner.
Here you can see our new toy bin how much less crowded it is with only one bed! I still am figuring out how I want to set everything up. I know I keep saying that everything isn't complete but I'm sure everyone is feeling the same about their own homes. In this picture you can also see our new little door mat that I picked up from Amazon. I actually picked up two of these and put one by the kitchen side door as well. I'm not 100% sold on them but they were only $17 a piece so they work for now!
Here are the marble coasters from HomeGoods. They are heavy and solid and work great!
Clearly someone is interested in them :)
So those are the updates to our living room! I will keep you updated as we make more updates!
