After a few weeks of planning, I am finally ready to share my new mood board with you!
We are currently undergoing a house transformation (it all started with designing my new office, but more on that later =), and it’s time to tackle the living room. Since moving here four years ago, we never really took much time to plan out the living room. Which is ridiculous, since it’s probably the most used room in our house. We were actually contemplating moving or building a new house- but we’ve decided to stay in this one for a few more years and make it work for us, because we honestly love living here.
Along the way of planning the space, I realized again how much I love creating mood boards. I’ve created them before showcasing fashion items and purple things, but creating them with a real space in mind is a bit different than just adding things which just simply look good together. This is probably the 15th or 20th version of the board! It was really too much fun- so much that I’m going to be introducing a mood board category on the blog. I decided on a bit of a coastal theme, because I absolutely love the beach and the calming feeling it brings me. I wanted the space to feel this way, but still have a fun pop of color to add some interest.
So how far along are we with the living room redo? Hmm.. well, our living room is empty except for a bench and armoire. Both of which will be replaced once our new things arrive. ‘Karl’ is scheduled to arrive tomorrow and I am beyond excited. The rug should be here by the end of the week, and I still have a couple more things on the list to pick up. (My main item is a unique thrifted TV table to put some magic touches on). We still have to paint too! And, it looks like ‘Karl’ is going to take a bit of time to assemble- check out this awesome video of YounHouseLove assembling the exact same sectional, it’s fun stuff!
I’ll be posting some before and afters of our progress, so stay tuned!
