Mini-makeover: My Living Room

A couple of weeks back, I posted this photo on our Instagram Account.Thoroughly inspired by Holly Becker’s Decorate Workshop, I decided to work on a little project, our living room. I was getting tired of how it looked—I found it too busy, totally overwhelming with absolutely no flow at all.

Spending a lot of money was not an option. We already had good foundation pieces—a couple of new accents and a fresh color palette was all we needed. So with my book and favorite tools I set out to tackle my mini project.

The tools: Decorate Workshop, colored pencils, grid paper and tape measure.

The Inspiration: A favorite painting from Roel Obemio. I pulled three colors from the painting to use as my new accent colors.

With the book as my guide, I drew a floor plan of what I want the living room to look like. I also included a list of activities that we usually do in the room to help me plan out a space that was pretty but functional as well.

I chose to use Monaco Blue, Blood Orange and Mimosa as our accent colors. I mixed pillows acquired from our travels as well as custom-made ones together by following the tips from our Decorating 101 post.

The finished product— for now. I still need to work on the wall and add more art pieces but I’m pretty happy with the outcome. It’s lively, serves it purpose and makes me smile whenever I walk into the room.
