When I decided to give my living room a little refresh, I wanted to make sure it was my style but without costing too much. What changes did I want to make? I wanted to give it a fresh new look, more open, but still elegant at the same time. After that, picking out a color palette was simple. One of my favorite colors is blush so I knew I wanted to include that in there and I already had this color in my living room before.

I went to HomeGoods and the first thing I found was this beautiful coffee table. I didn’t even have to think twice about buying it! It’s beautiful and it’s just the style I was looking for. The tabletop is marble, the legs are brass, and there’s a little wooden side table attached which I think complements it perfectly. It’s just the right style for my living room and the best part of all is that it doesn’t take up too much space! The things you can find at HomeGoods are truly exceptional.

The blue arm chair was an awesome find. As soon as I saw it, I knew that color was just what I needed for my living room to give it the change I was looking for. I wanted the space to look a little more fresh. The color is beautiful and I love the modern look of it. The legs on this are brass as well so it ties in with the coffee table. You can turn it whichever way you’d like which makes it easy when styling. A blue velvet couch is a must!

The area rug is something I’ve been wanting to change for a while now which is why I gave myself the task of finding one that really caught my eye and went with my vision. Well, I definitely found that in this rug! I was looking for a blue that wasn’t too dark and also not a solid blue. This rug is just the right shade of blue, not too dark and not too light. I also love that the blue is mixed in with the rich cream color, it’s perfect! The best part is that I got this on CLEARANCE! That’s what I think makes HomeGoods stand out from the other home stores because you’ll always find whatever you need at prices that can’t be beat.

Greenery is such an important part in my designs. They make my living room look fresh and full of life. If you need to fill a space in your room, nothing is better than a beautiful plant. You can’t go wrong. The key is to put it in just the right spot, like by a window, to give it more life.

For me, accessories on the coffee table are super important because that is what catches peoples eyes the most. I like when it looks put together, modern, and with pieces that can start a conversation. The gold birds were HomeGoods finds and I knew I needed them the first time I saw them! They were perfect for my coffee table. My table is large so it has a lot of space and I was able to find a lot of things that were just my style. Like this white balls string accessory. They were originally green but I liked them so much I decided to spray paint them and add tassels at the end.

Pillows are so important because they are what give your couch life. I went with blue for this refresh and I found a ton of blue pillows. In the end I decided on these because they have different shades of blue and a geometric shape which I think makes a beautiful contrast.

I hope you all enjoyed this refresh! Don’t forget to follow me on all my social media platforms for more inspiration and tips! See you next time!
