Buying our first home has been such a whirlwind! Josh and I lived in an apartment for over two years and I never really took the initiative to decorate it because we knew we weren’t going to live there forever. When we bought our house in December, I knew I wanted to focus on making the house into a HOME! I wanted to complete one room at a time before moving on to the next and I tried to have a cohesive vision throughout each room. I wanted to keep everything clean and simple :)
As I’ve gotten older, my style has changed. I gravitate towards grays and creams… with only a POP of color! Our house is tiny, so I wanted to arrange our furniture in a way that makes it seem bigger and brighter! Luckily, we didn’t have to do any major renovations to the house, but we did paint every.single.room. AH! We are so happy with the color choices – yay!
Here are some before and after photos of our living room!! Enjoy:
Here’s a quick iPhone photo of our living room before we painted and bought furniture. And yes, those are wedding gifts in the center of the room… don’t judge :) Most of the house was painted a weird yellow color. YUCK!
Here is the finished product! We painted most of the downstairs a light gray color and I think it literally goes with everything! We got our couch + coffee table from Wayfair! I seriously LOVE that site :)
Funny story about that leather chair? I totally bought it at an estate sale when I was broke and had ZERO money – and it’s still one of my favorite pieces!
Josh and I love to travel, so we got a HUGE 30×40 canvas print of one of our wedding photos! Isn’t Puerto Vallarta gorgeous? Also, we used Easy Canvas Prints!
I wanted green to be our accent color so I decided to layer different textures on our couch. Between the accent blanket and different pillows… I loved how it turned out! The shelf is from Pottery Barn and the Happiness is Homemade sign is from Home Goods!
I LOVE this gold lamp I found a Target! Is anyone else really impressed with their home section recently?!
Shoutout to my cousin-in-law Tabitha for making me this cute sign!!
Here’s our little entryway as soon as you walk into our house!! Yep, all of those plants are fake and I have no shame about that!! The mirror is from Target and everything else is from Hobby Lobby!
Another wonderful piece from Tabitha! Thanks, girl!
Well friends, there ya have it! A little peek into our little home! I hope this inspires you to bargain shop and find great sales :)
