As I said in my post at the start of the month, I am woking on redoing some stuff in my apartment. I am moving things around and changing things up and settling back in. Everything is still a bit of a mess but right now, the living room is mostly done.
I will be writing up posts for all the different areas of my house and my living room will likely change even more but for now, I wanted to share some photos.
For me, I want my living room to feel like a cozy place. I want it to be the place where I can snuggle up on the couch on a cold day and watch TV but I also want it to be a place where people would feel comfortable to hang out.
I want mood lighting and cozy chairs and places to relax. My goal is that when I have friends over, they feel like they can make themselves at home. We’ve all been to that person’s house that feels like a magazine, cold and uninviting. While I want my place to look good, I also want it to be warm and safe.
I have always loved little personal touches in a living room. Books, old bottles, travel souvenirs, little knick knacks, and sentimental pieces. My dream was to always have something like that in my living room so when I was able to do that, I totally embraced it!
I would love to get some more artwork for the walls, and a basket to put things like extra blankets in. The living room needs to be painted. I also need some solid storage for my DVDs but…we’ll get there. It’s all a work in progress.
What do you think a living room needs most?
