I’ve learned a ton about home decor ever since I moved into my new place, but the number one lesson I’ve learned, is there is no such thing as being done. I am constantly adding, changing, and editing my furniture and home decor. But to be honest, I’m kind of ok with it. In fact, I just installed new pendant lights in my kitchen after having my last pair for just two months. I think it’s an improvement but if I change my mind again, they’re easy enough to switch out. So that’s why I’m not waiting any longer to do my living room reveal. I love where we’re at with it and although I do want to change and add a few things, I love my living room and am so thrilled to share it with y’all!
When I first started the decorating process, I had no idea how to define my style. I took quiz after quiz, shopped online endlessly, and felt just as clueless as when I began. It wasn’t until I finally pulled the trigger and started buying things that I finally felt like it all started to become clear. I’ve found that I align most with transitional style. I kind of take a little bit from a few different styles (midcentury modern, bohemian, and architectural) and bring them all together in a unique and interesting, yet seamless way. My living room is the first room in my house that I feel truly reflects my style. It is not possible for me to be unhappy when I’m in this room.
I’ll share what I want to add, but first, I’d like to talk about the pieces I do have in here. I brought my beautiful blush pink couch over from my old place, along with my marble side table, but that’s where it ends. Everything else is new and I am in love with it all. The first thing I bought when I moved in was a new 65″ tv. I actually wanted to go bigger, but we settled on a 65″ and I am happy with how it looks in the room. Once we had the tv mounted (thanks, Rene!), we needed more seating. My friend Gabriela from from Wake + Loom Interior Design suggested round back swivel chairs and it was like this beautiful aha moment. So so perfect! I found these and instantly fell in love with the unique shape.
Then I added the gorgeous centerpiece of the room: this stunning terrazzo coffee table. It honestly might be my favorite piece I own. In fact, I wrote a whole blog post about it. This incredible piece is nearly 300 lbs and I want to keep it forever! I love the extremely soft shag rug almost as much as I love the coffee table. Ryan and I have spent so much time just laying on the floor and enjoying the plush, cozy rug!
The last piece I added was the media console. I searched for a media console for months with no luck. Every time I fell in love with a piece, it was either sold out or back-ordered to 2021. I wish I was exaggerating. So I finally caved and bought this cheap one off Amazon. I upcycled it by replacing the legs and knobs and I love how it turned out. I definitely won’t be keeping this one forever, but I think it’s a great stand-in for the time being.
Finally, I got all new decor, mostly from Millie Swan and it is just the cherry on the top of my perfect dreaem living room. The decor from Millie Swan is literally exactly my style. I love it all!

Next on the list for what I want to do in here besides a new media console is add more plants–ideally a super tall one for the left corner! Ryan and I also discussed printing some of his photos from South Africa and possibly adding a bench that can be used as decor and additional seating as needed. We originally wanted to do shelving on either side of the tv, but now I’m thinking we might just leave it open so the room isn’t too crowded. I would love any ideas or suggestions!
Overall, it’s really an amazing feeling to have a home that reflects my personality and my style. I truly feel at home and at peace when I’m here, which is so important, especially when I’m home all day every day!
What’s your favorite room in your home?
