The Living Room Files

Our living room is coming along (I guess it should be considering we've lived here for over a year). And it's definitely the room I've put the most effort into probably because it's where I spend the most time. I love the room; hard wood floors, a wall of exposed brick, mint-y green walls and a big sliding glass door. It's a little too cluttered for my liking but until I get a lobotomy and turn into an organized and clean person I will have to accept that. I've done a pretty solid job bringing together a pretty random assortment of items and making it quasi-work. I'm a big fan of lots of color and fun details. I love the room so far but want to keep working on it. In the vain of Nicole and my BF Marth, who always makes these, I did some inspiration boards. The first one is a little snippet of what we already have in the room to give you an idea of how it feels. The second one is the fun one, the wish list.

(what I want: a multi-color bunting that I plan to make myself similar to this one from SparklePower, Marquee Alphabet Light from Urban Outfitters, fun throw pillows in bright colors from catstudio and crate & barrel, I can't imagine spending $200 on a throw blanket but I like the look of the Quirky Heirloom Throw from Anthro, Vincent Graphite Twin Sleeper from CB2, I loved this Sol Console Table from CB2 and although they don't make it anymore I plan on recreating it DIY-style, and a black and white striped rug).
