Maybe you already knew, but the inspiration driving my living room makeover is black and white. Surprise surprise! I’ve been taking a lot of cues from Scandinavian and minimal designs because I’m simply most drawn to those, and though I’ve fantasized about having a wonderfully eclectic colorful home, my first love has always been a chic, neutral space.
The big decision right now is on a sofa, and the frontrunner is a white (maybe gray) one. Wait wait wait, what happened to the blue velvet sofa obsession?? I know! With the way things have been coming along, throwing in a dramatic blue velvet sofa would look SWEET, but a more neutral option is tugging at me even more. Overall though, I’m struggling the most with this decision. We might need to have a vote on the blog soon.
Still have a few more tough decisions to make, but something I like to do to help guide me is to keep inspiration photos on a private Pinterest board, and when I come across decor I’m contemplating, I ask myself if it would fit into these spaces. I do believe in if you like it, you like it, but I also think guidelines need to be in place to keep on track, especially for someone like me who can get carried away with liking a lot of different things.
Neutral/monochrome pillows= yummy.
I’m not a pink person, but suddenly soft pinks are looking amazing to me. Also love the idea of a dark charcoal sofa.
This space is probably my most favorite.
And what about a sectional?? That option is in the running, too, though boyf isn’t a fan which is not at all what I expected he’d say. Oh yea, I’m taking his opinions into consideration. So kind of me, right?
Liking any of these spaces? Do you keep style-themed pinboards to help guide your decor decisions, too?
