Our living room is the place where we spend most of our time. So it is important to us that it be warm, comfortable and inviting. We wanted large couches to snuggle on and to have enough seating for guests. We love to entertain. Because we have little ones, I am also a fan of an ottoman as opposed to a coffee table. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good coffee table, but I find the ottoman to be safer for our super active little ones who really enjoy running! We purchased our couches from Raymour and Flanigan and we love the comfort of the feather pillow stuffing!
I am new to the pillow cover world. haha I am loving changing up our pillows with the lower cost. To think, all of these years, I was buying the whole decorative pillow when I could have been changing up the style of the couches so easily and more frequently. I love these new pillow covers I got in the mail recently. Believe it or not, they are from Amazon and are each under $7!
The lamps in our living room are a bit rustic and a bit modern. We were looking for a modern farmhouse piece. These lovely lamps are from Target! And I absolutely love them! Which brings me to the window frames and wooden star with the sweet lights built in. These are all from Target also. The star is battery operated and is a great piece to separate the window frames which hold some of our favorite pictures. Our sweet friend, Bridget from Bridget Thomas Photography, takes our family photos and we love to display them in our home.
I have to say that the absolute best part of this home and having big windows in our living room is… THE VIEW! I can not and will not get sick of the view. It was our absolute favorite thing when we saw the house for the first time and it still is!
We have more work to do in this space and I’d love to add a few more furniture pieces… So stay tuned…
