Living Room Brainstorming

I’ve said it before, we hate our living room couch.  We have a small living room, but would like it to work better for us. So, what do we do when a friend is wanting to get rid of an almost new L shaped sectional in cream? Snatch it up!

It looks huge and things are in disarray right now, but it is so comfy, and much more what we were wanting for a more functional room.  A sectional seems more modern than our house, but this one combines my love for tufting too! So, now I have been on the hunt for living room inspiration before making any decisions about ours.  Enjoy my eclectic collection of musings…

I love the horse photo in this one. And, it’s a sectional.

This one is an L shaped couch and a smaller room like ours.

I love the gray of this couch. They are using a coffee table and the ottoman is separate for more seating.  We are considering doing away with our coffee table and using a large tray on the ottoman.  Hm?

Not a sectional, but I love a Chesterfield. Always inspiring. lol

I loved the patterned pillows in this living room.  I am also digging the idea of the wall mounted lamps.  We lack floor space and this might do the trick!

Another gray sectional, and I loved the mix of fun pillows!

Bright colors and a rustic coffee table.

Not exactly our style room, but I love the big coffee table and even the tweed on the couch!

Another room with no sectional, but how pretty!? I love everything about this one.

The next few rustic rooms are for Jeremy 😉

I love the mix in this room.  The more subtle antlers, and especially the tufted chair!!

This one has the Chesterfield for me and the antler chandelier for Jeremy!

Any more ideas? Let us know! And soon I will show you progress on our room!

Desire to Inspire recently featured the works of Claire Larritt-Evans, the ultra talented designer behind Fenton & Fenton.  I found every single image inspiring! This was my favorite:

Fancied Up

We are just about completely ready for the party, but last night decided that the dogs should be clean and pretty too.  After the bathing, brushing, and clipping, we thought Marley would make a pretty girl with red toenails.  Have you ever tried this before?  Yes, I am that cheesey.  She is adorable but, man, was it work! 🙂  Check out our pretty dogs!  And, have a great weekend!
