Even though we aren't currently in the position to redo the living room, I would like to start making some decisions so we can at least head in the right direction. We took the same approach with our bedroom, and now it is my favorite room in the house (pictures to come, when I have a day to clean it top to bottom first, lol).
The first step in my "process" is to find lovely pictures of living rooms. Oh and because I'm not the best blogger in the whole world, I only have a source for about half of these inspiration photos (eek!).
All of the above photos are from the all-inspiring House Beautiful living room slide show! I find these all to be nice and neutral with pops of color here and there. I think the very first is my current favorite because of the different textures and colors that blend well.
The above photos are the ones that I had in a file of inspiration, and have no clue of the source. Of these, I think the last one is my favorite. It has the same charm that the other favorite has. I also really like the picture with the couple at their desks in the living room. Nick and I are constantly sitting in the living room, me on my laptop on the couch and Nick behind me on his computer. We enjoy being in the same room but doing separate things. This would be a perfect way for us to be together and chat, but still be able to do different things.
Do you have favorite styles of the moment or a "process" for design?
