Living Room Idea Board

Good morning! Can you believe it will be February this week? Crazy! Even though time is going quickly, I am so ready for warmer weather. I am definitely a summer kind of girl!

Since I am stuck inside most of the time, I have thinking all the projects I want to get done in our house. We have lived in this home for two years now. We did quite a few projects at the very beginning. My husband scraped all the popcorn ceilings. It was a huge job, but I’m so glad we got it done before we moved in! Then we had all the ceilings textured and had the whole inside of the house painted. This gave me a nice clean slate to start with! But now, I have been thinking more about what I want each room to look and feel like.

We are starting with the living room this year.We will be putting in new floors. I’m pretty sure the carpet has been here since the house was built in 1968. Yuck! Here is a picture of what it looks like now.

I have picked out a lighter color floor since the room isn’t used on a daily basis. It also has to blend with the existing floor in the dining room. Here is the one we are looking at.

We want to add 2 faux beams, new base boards and other trim around the room. Once the floor is done, this idea board shows what I would like to have in the living room area.

Right before Christmas, I found an Ikea Ektorp Loveseat on OfferUp. I couldn’t believe the deal I got! I had been searching for awhile and was so excited to find this. It is in perfect shape! Now I can plan the rest of the room.

(I have links at the bottom of the post for all the items on my idea board)

I would like to have 2 side chairs and I love the look of these Bashir Armchairs by Birch Lane Heritage. The stripe is subtle enough that I can still add other pattern and color to the room. I love the classic look of these chairs.

I desperately need a coffee table in this room. Right now I am using a small oval wicker table we have had for over 30 years. I love this Stoneford Coffee Table! It has just the coastal look I am looking for in this room! I especially like the “X” design on the sides.

The Beachcrest Sade Tree Floor Lamp is so cool! I really like the shades on this one. I like how it would arch over the loveseat a bit to add more light. The color of the Mercury Row Miltiades Table Lamp is perfect too! It adds just a bit of the turquoise that I love so much.

Of course, I have to have pillows! I already have a closet full, but the texture and colors on this Sacks Indoor Lumbar Pillow are so perfect! It has a little bit of a boho feel to it too.

I always have a hard time with artwork, but I really like the look of this Marine Sunset on Canvas. It’s not so overly coastal, but still has all the soft colors and look that I like.

Well, that’s it for now! That’s my goal for this year! I can’t wait to see how it is all going to turn out! I will be sure to keep you all posted!
