Since the search for the dining table & chairs are done (which I will post about really soon), it is time to look for decor and furniture for our living room. We haven’t done much to our living room since we moved in. We’re using our old sofa and loveseat, an old coffee table and still no decoration on our mantle.
Don’t get me wrong, our sofa and loveseat are still in great condition and so is our coffee table but we just really want to get new ones. We’ve had ours since we moved in together in 2010 so I think it’s about time for a new one, don’t you?
We’ve gone to various furniture stores and only really found a couple that we both like. We are thinking of getting the one in the photo below from Ashley Furniture. I just really love the nail head detail on the sofa & loveseat. It looks so pretty in person and surprisingly comfy! I also love the color. I wanted something light – beige, but not too light for we have pets and the color of this fabric is gorgeous! It’s not just a plain beige/cream. It has some gray and more brown too it. It’s really pretty ♥ I’ve also found similar sofa/loveseat sets on Amazon but the bottom looks different. This one seems sturdier and also, the ones on Amazon are just plain beige – it looks too light. So, we decided to go with this one :)
Ottoman or Coffee Table? Which one do you prefer? I’m thinking both… lol jk. They are both pretty but we can only have one. I really love the way the ottoman looks but I feel like having a coffee table is much more functional.
What to do you think?
As for “end tables,” I didn’t wanna go with whatever the coffee table comes with. I want a pretty accent table. Something that will add more pizazz in our living room without being too much; And I’ve always had my eyes on these two beauties! The right one ($99.00) is from Urban Outfitters and the other is from Target ($59.99). I really love both… but can’t choose which one to get. Help!?
For the center piece of our mantle… I just can’t decide on what I want. Before we even moved in I’ve already pinned a couple of ideas on my Pinterest. Here are my favorites.
So as you can see, I don’t want just a plain mirror… I want it to be round and have character – simple yet elegant. I did find two that I like from Target (posted in the picture above). The one on the right ($34.99) has some bad reviews which makes me a little hesitant on getting it, as for the other one ($39.99), I’m not sure if Tom would like it. I’ve seen it in stores and I loveeeeeee it!
What do you guys think? Any suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated ♥
I’m really excited to get going and make our living room pretty! hehehe
