Happy Monday! 

I promised you guys that I was going to reveal my living room with you. However, I chose to keep this to an update because it is not quite finished. You can tell by looking at the pictures below that there is some work that still needs to be done...AND I am still missing a coffee table. 

Eclectic Living Room Moodboard

In the upper left hand corner I added some prints that I already have in the adjoining room or that I would love to add to the space. The lower level of my home is pretty much open, except for the kitchen, and trying to make the space cohesive while staying true to who I am can be a bit challenging...because I love almost everything and I collect a lot of different things. I plan on switching up my throw pillows...I have just been extremely lazy to sew them. I know...I need to get the ball rolling, but pretty much this is the basis of the room. 

Tula Pink Selfie 16th Century Plum fabric

I really would love to incorporate this fabric into my "office" space which is located on the opposite side of the living room right in front of the sliding door---where my pink couch used to be located. This area is "still" a part of the living room but we do not use it for that purpose. I will talk about this area in a later post. Anyways, since my office is located somewhat in the living room, I would love for this space to be cohesive and compliment the living room....Honestly, I just need this fabric in my life. HAHA! 

Vintage Eclectic Living Room

WORK...I know...I will point it out....the table to the left needs work. I like the original stain, BUT it needs work and half of this table is wood and the (faux) drawer is laminate....So at this moment, I am stump. I do not want to paint it, I would love to stain it, but I have not figured out what to do with the laminate part. See my dilemma? Any thoughts?

  1. Wow, this space looks so fancy, and that fabric is really unique, so I hope you figure out a way to use it! I don't have any ideas on what you can do with that piece of furniture, but I'm sure there is something you can do with it, to perk it up!

  3. I just love your style! And I so wish we were closer so we could thrift and DIY together! I could learn lots from you! And I can't believe your space is a RENTAL! It's such an inspiration because I think so many people who are renting think they can't really customize their space to them...but you've clearly proven that wrong!!! So fab! xox

  13. Love this space Jess! And what about constructing a new drawer front and then staining the whole thing one cohesive color... too much work?

  17. Your comment about taking forever to sew your pillows made me laugh. I bought fabric for curtains for our camper at the beginning of summer, and just started sewing them last night. Maybe they'll be ready for next year's camping trips! lol
    btw, I love the black chair- it is gorgeous!

  22. I am totally digging what's going on in this space. That couch is so killer. For the laminate part of the sewing table, I'd either paint it or maybe cover it in fabric? Like a decoupage? Maybe that will work. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
