I know it’s been a little while since I’ve posted any updates about our house lately – it’s just been a whirlwind of unpacking, getting settled, and just generally enjoying the summer, busyness and all. However, now I’m back at it and designing for more of the rooms in our new house! You remember my bedroom style board that I posted a while back? Well, I’m keeping the boho trend going with our living room and I couldn’t be more excited about the boho living room style board that I’ve come up with!
This is what our living room looked like when we first moved in (those blue Ikea bags have board games in them – any other board game fans??) It’s basically a big blank box with a gas fireplace and a couple of windows.
Not too exciting or inspiring or cozy, is it? Boring builder grade. I have something a bit more cozy and my style in mind 😉 Check out my cozy boho style board board below, see where I found each awesome item, and oogle all of the comfy, delectable boho goodness.
One of the big DIYs that we want to do to this space is to add a brick facade to the large wall featured in our before picture above. We wanted to do this in our last house, but never got around to it, and I just haven’t been able to get the idea of a brick wall out of my head. So we are going to do it in our new house and that big ol’ wall is just perfect for it. It’ll add a ton of texture and warmth and I’m so excited to get it done 🙂 We also want to extend the flooring in the kitchen into the living room for one continuous look (plus I don’t really like carpet anyway).
As for the furniture and decor in the space go, we are using our existing Ikea arm chairs and the side table I made over a couple years back in addition to other little home decor details here and there.
For new pieces, my husband and I wanted a fun-colored couch to add a pop of interest to the space, so I chose a dark forest emeraldy green that is echoed in the plant life and some of the water in the ocean art print I chose. I want our living room to be all about cozyness, so I was sure to include comfy textures like a chunky knit throw, poufs, macrame pillows, and more blankets. One can never have too many blankets (no matter what my husband says)! Gold accents and wood tones round off the space nicely – man, I just can’t wait to see this dream style board become a reality!
