Drum roll please…. WELCOME TO MY NEW LIVING & DINING ROOM. Y’all, I am so excited to finally share my new favorite living spaces. After months of mulling over each and every piece (is anyone else so indecisive?), it really feels sooo good to finally see it come together.
When decorating, I really wanted my space to feel bright and happy yet cozy and comfortable. Every time someone walks into this space, they say it feels “calm” and to me, that is the biggest compliment! I am really drawn to modern bohemian styles with some mid-century modern pieces. I absolutely love using patterns (give me a printed Moroccan rug, and I’m a happy girl), different textures, and earthy colors (with some pastels, too!). I always find myself trying to create a very laid-back, natural vibe by including elements like jute, rattan, and cane, while keeping it modern with velvet and marble accents. I love how boho decor allows you to do your own thing and just have fun with it!
If you can’t tell, I’m currently obsessed with marble, light oak wood, gold accents, loads of plants, fun textures, and pastel colors: aka my modern bohemian dream.
One thing I knew was a priority for me when looking into furniture was a big comfy couch. I’ve always been a fan of couches that look like you can just dive right into them for a movie night, so this sectional from Raymour & Flanigan sold me right away! I ended up choosing a really neutral light color which I am honestly so happy about since it makes everything feel really bright and airy.
I’ve also never had a couch with a chaise lounge, so that was also on my priority list! Let me tell you when I say that I end up taking naps on the chaise more than I would like to admit lol. If you’re between a couch with a chaise or without, I would definitely recommend the chaise if you have the space. I really love how this is a couch that everyone can sit on and have more than enough room to stretch out and get comfy!
While I knew I wanted to keep the big pieces (couch, chair, etc) fairly neutral and light, I added pops of color in with the rug, and an accent pink chair. I think it adds just the right amount of pastel tones without being overbearing. I know home trends right now are totally neutral, but if color makes you happy, I say go for it! I love my peachy accent tones, I feel like they make the space look happy.
For the dining area, I knew I wanted pops of blush and gold, like these incredible dining chairs, while still keeping the space really relaxed. I fell in love with the oval shape of this table the minute I saw it, it feels really unique and special. To tone down the *glam* elements of the blush and gold and make them a bit more bohemian, I decided to add a Moroccan rug, and a big bird of paradise plant to keep the natural vibes. Then, to tie it all together, I added a big floor mirror (my favorite piece in my home!) to make the space nice and open. If you’re working with smaller space, a floor mirror really helps to make it *look bigger*. It creates soo much depth!
The stars of these rooms (my dining set and couch) are both from Raymour & Flanigan and I honestly couldn’t be happier with them. The quality is awesome, the look is exactly what I wanted, and I love knowing that these pieces are going to hold up for years to come. Pro tip when looking at their site: make sure to use the “search” function to find specific pieces that might not show up right away! I searched “marble table” after not seeing any in the regular category, then stumbled upon this beauty. There many more options then you think!
Thank you so much for reading. I hope this post inspires you to have fun with decorating and really enjoy your space! I can’t wait to see what you create.
