Y’all, I never thought in a million years I would ever show you my living room.
I don’t know why, but for me, decorating the living room has always been a struggle. I’m not even quite sure what it is. But I have a few theories: I can’t mix patterns well, the ugly television has to go somewhere, and there is usually a piece of furniture in there that I despise and can’t really be changed at the moment.
My kitchen. No problem. Maybe it’s because there are so many “fixed” items in there that could easily be changed like painting the cabinets. And updating the barstools was easy. And I knew I wanted stainless steel appliances, since we had to buy appliances considering there were no appliances at all in the foreclosure.
The same was true for my bathroom. I knew I wanted white marble floors – it was a classic that went with everything and I easily found a new vanity for cheap.
Anyway, the living room always stumps me. I have finally shown it to you here and most recently here. I’m still not 100% in love with it. However, its growing on me and decorating is a process for those of us that don’t have hundreds of dollars to drop in one shopping trip.
So, to continue inspiring me in my living room endeavors and to hopefully inspire you, I’ve gathered 20+ living room ideas that will hopefully help us all out. Unless you are a living room decorating genius. In that case, I bow down in your genius presence.
Living Room Ideas
Charming Zebra’s living room space is just calling my name. I LOVE those chairs. The dark color she has on the wall is balanced perfectly with all the white accents.
I have always been a huge fan of built-in bookcases on either side of a fireplace like Making Lemonade has in her home. They are a classic.
Emily A. Clark’s gallery wall above her television is just gorgeous. I so wish mine looked like that. I also love how she added sconces on either side of the t.v. It dresses the whole space up.
Bliss at Home is so freakin’ talented. She can pull a space together so beautifully. I love her wall of bookcases in her living room. They are gorgeous and functional. The lights above them make them more of a showpiece than just bookcases.
Check out AKA Design’s coffee table. Its large, so it can accommodate lots of goodies, but its also a chest. Hello storage!
Don’t want to go for one single dark wall color? How about navy mixed with white as seen here. Its balanced and that navy and white combo is one that will never go out of style.
You guys know I love me some navy. Heather at Southern State of Mind melts my heart with those navy pillows and window treatments. I also love her campaign chest she has in the back corner. Stylish and great for storage.
I love Cuckoo 4 Design’s living room. Not because we both have the same rug and IKEA chair, but because it is very trendy and glamorous, but still feels relaxed. If there is anyone that can show us how beautiful a neutral living room is, its Jamie. Don’t miss these neutral, yet beautiful living room ideas.
This living room from Flourish Design + Style is another mostly neutral living room, but it has some great pops of color.
House by Hoff shares some great tips for mixing patterns with pillows – something I always struggle with.
The Wood Grain Cottage installed board and batten in her living room. It creates such a cozy feeling.
You know you don’t wanna miss any of this crazy.
