If I could completely change my living room weekly, I probably would. Luckily, I have the kind of job that I can change other people’s homes on the reg. I started creating this inspiration board for a living room remodel and I completely fell in love with the rich emerald green color. With the pops of pink from the artwork and the and the leopard velvet pillows, this space feels about as luxurious as you can get.
Every piece in this room is reasonably affordable, even the furniture. The entire space is around $3,500. I love shopping at Wayfair, Joss and Main, and even Overstock because they have such beautiful high-end furniture and decor that has been majorly marked down. I bought my $2,000 Willa Arlo sofa for about $500 at Waifair during a flash sale. Not only did I get a beautiful and well-made designer sofa, I saved a fortune. I’d much rather find a sale than buy low quality furniture that will end up falling apart.
When I was coming up with ideas for this living space I started with the couch, the boldest piece, and worked in everything else. I find that rooms begin to come together one piece at a time when you start with only one piece that catches your eye and pair it with neutrals that makes a statement piece pop. When you start with too many pieces at once, it can get a bit chaotic and that’s when clashes happen. It’s so easy for a room to become “too much” when you choose things that you like that may play beautifully on their own, but may not play well with others.
Even if you’re like me and love over-the-top decor, remember that the special piece can lose its luster if paired with too many other special pieces. Let the focal point speak and let the rest of your space act as a microphone, enhancing whatever you want your feature piece to be.
