Living room inspiration

All photos via Pinterest

It seems like the past two posts I did regarding inspiration for my apartment - namely the home office and the bar cart - went over well, so today I wanted to share some thoughts on my living room area. It's the place my husband and I spend the most time and it's the first thing you see when you walk in, so I really want it to look styled and put together.

We got new couches right before Christmas, and since then I've been anxious to start swapping out pieces of our current furniture. However, my dilemma is that I can't decide which direction I want to go. The couches are this amazing brown leather with nailhead detailing and I absolutely love them. But the rest of our furniture is dark wood, so I'm looking to lighten up the room a bit. Some days I'm inspired by monochromatic white looks, while other days I'm drawn towards brass accents and eclectic pieces that work in harmony to create an overall aesthetic. As you can see from my inspiration here (and even more on Pinterest), I'm kind of all over the place. I'm thinking a brown and white (lots and lots of white!) theme with muted metallic (both gold and silver) accents. Thoughts?

Oh, and here are some pieces I have my eye on. I'm hesitant to make any purchases until I pin down exactly the look I'm going for, but these are definitely frontrunners!


P.S. Are you liking these home decor posts? It's something I've really been interested in lately - and I love writing about it! Is it something you'd want to see more of here? XO
