House hunting, this time around, makes me want to be more intentional and meticulous about how I want to decorate my next home. I realize after living in two homes, that I really want to know what my overall decor theme is going to be before I start buying things to decorate it with. Many times I would want to buy an item because it is so cute or pretty but then realized it wouldn’t match what I had in the house. Or I would go ahead and buy it and then realize it later. I think that my next home can be much more uniform in its decor and flow if I just decided ahead of time what kind of theme I want and only buy items that fall into that theme.
I am going to do several posts over the the next month or two where I pick a room of a home and find home decor pictures for that room.
So today I am doing living room inspirations. Here are some pics I selected that has aspects I would like for my new home.
I have a thing for big windows. I love natural light and if my next home has large windows in the living room, I would be so happy. I also like the minimalistic modern home decor look. The couches I have right now are minimalistic, black and faux leather. The rugs against that particular color of flooring is really nice too.
My husband has said how he likes the look of ceiling beams. I think he wants them to be wooden though. I think I like them either way. He can make that look happen cause he is pretty handy like that. I also love the color scheme of this decor. Grey is my favorite color for home design. I also like how all the sofas are facing towards each other for group conversations.
Light airy colors… ahhhh… love it! It gives such a relaxing feel. I will definitely be doing light wall colors. It makes rooms feel bigger. That rope rug is pretty cool too. Check out my last post My July Top 5 Cool Links for the link to make a round rope rug!
Ok.. this bookshelf with back lights is pretty awesome. I might be able to get my husband to make me something like this.
I already did something similar to this is my last home, however, I like this one because the frames are bigger than the ones I used and they use art instead of family photos, which is different. The white floors are amazing too! I’m not sure if i could pull it off though with a toddler. But I am thinking about doing a light grayish floor, if it is affordable and if when it scratches ( and it will ), it is not noticeable. Everything about all the decor is so endearing.
Well, these are my living room inspirations for now. What are your home inspirations? Do you have a particular home style you like? Share with it me in the comments!
