living room + a new sofa
September 25, 2014


i haven’t done a post on my living room since i’ve updated it and wanted to share the completed look.  this room has always been an incomplete catchall for me.  it’s usually a mix of hand me down pieces, blog project pieces and pieces i find on the side of the road (i’m not even kidding).

i knew the first thing that had to go was my hand me down sofa (cannot believe i just linked to that old of a post- you’ll laugh).  the sofa set that started in this house when my parents lived here.  it moved with me to the suburbs and then returned back to it’s original home.  kirsten made me get rid of this particular sofa set in my family room last year and so logically i just moved it into the living room.

so the sofa was the first thing to go and the first thing i needed to get to start pulling the room together.  i knew the sofa would have to either be exceptionally large or a sectional.  after some deliberation, i decided a sectional would fill the space and seat my family best.  i found the perfect one from smart furniture.  we picked the jane bisectional sofa in totem storm.


i love this sofa because the chaise lounge attachment can change from right to left facing in a jiffy (i can swap it around all by myself).  it’s such a sturdy piece (and, i can vouch for this as my kids have been jumping on it for a few months now) and the color is great with little ones too.





next, i re-arranged a few things, added some pretty plants, i incorporated a few new pieces and made the above shelf (DIY coming soon), and a fun yarn wall art piece for above the pretty new sofa (DIY here).



i’m really pleased with the look and just so happy to have this room feel put together.

@Shari, my thoughts exactly! Felt calmed just reading this. Love the mixture of colors and textures. So serene and feminine yet well balanced for family.

That couch is awesome. And how nice that you can switch sides with it. I wish my sectional did that!
