Neutral Living Room Decor
There are very few spaces in our home that I feel are “finished”, but the living room is just about there. While everything is always a bit of a work in progress, this space is starting to feel complete.
Neutrals don’t have to be boring. When you add in fun art, tons of varying textures, and different materials. We wanted a light and bright space that also felt very cozy and inviting. We live a lot of life in here in this space.
The rug is this one HERE. We wanted something large enough to fill the whole space and durable. While the jute is not the softest option, it’s heavy duty for our two toddler boys. The texture that this brings to the room is great as well.
Our couches are the Restoration Hardware Maxwell in Belgian linen. We have had them for years and they’ve held up well. We wash the covers fairly frequently. The trick is to spray any stains and wash on delicate and cold. Before the covers are totally dry, put them back on. You can have a fan on them to speed the drying process. (Never put in dryer…)
The couches were a bit of a splurge, but if you love the look of Restoration Hardware for less I have a full blog post on that HERE.
These white chairs are a Restoration Hardware look for less option. They are these HERE. These cushion covers can be washed as well. Many think I’m crazy for having these with kids, but we really haven’t had a problem with them. We use this stain remover and it’s great. I also hang a throw blanket on the back and a pillow on the front of each chair.
It took multiple attempts to get artwork that we really loved in the space. Oversized art makes such a statement for any room. The doves to me mean peace. I love the idea of having that in living area of our home. These were purchased from Perigold and the artist name is Thom Filicia.
Baskets are a great way to hold blankets, pillows or in our case they hide the toys. These HERE from Target come in two sizes and look identical to our Pottery Barn ones.
Another way I made a statement in this space were with oversized throw pillows. These pillows were a splurge, but made such a difference. They are HUGE and bring in a great texture. You can find them HERE.
We needed to add in a bit of storage in the space and this accent cabinet has been perfect.
A favorite piece in the room is this mirror. It’s the popular Anthropologie version which is another splurge, but I’ve found a mirror that looks almost identical for under $100. You can find that one HERE.
When it came to the coffee table I knew I needed something that would be kid friendly for our two wild toddlers. This soft ottoman has been super durable and great for the kids. My dad built a simple waterfall edge to the specifications of the ottoman to provide a space for some added decor.
Personalized touches in a space are what makes a home feel like home. George went to an art class with a Nashville based artist, Sydney Clawson, and made an abstract piece. I had the piece framed and wanted a really special way to showcase that. This gallery art easel makes such a statement for a great price. They have a smaller version that can go on top of a table as well.
