Living Room Updates

Good morning & happy Monday!  Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite home accessories that I have incorporated to lighten and brighten our space without having to spend too much money.  As I have shared before, our living room is a little too dark for my taste these days, so I have been adding whites, golds, grays, and blues to help lighten everything up!

This is one of my favorite candle holders that I found at Home Goods.  It is such a cool design and really is a focal piece in our living room.  Plus, it only cost me $7.99!

I shared my gold transformation last week and have loved how this little nook now stands out instead of fading into the background.  This also was a very quick and low cost project.  It was great to be able to transform something that is just "ok" into something that I love!

Pillows are another great and easy way to change the look of a room.  I fell in love with this Robert Allen fabric and had my grandmother sew two 20x20 pillow covers.  They are able to break up the heavy brown of our couches, and I'm really happy with how they turned out!

I recently got this West Elm Tray for my birthday and switched it out with our old brown tray from Pottery Barn.  I love having a tray on our coffee table, but the brown was just too dark for this location.  I try to make this area personal to us by adding our engagement book, fresh flowers, and my favorite Anthropologie candle.

Thanks for stopping by to see a peak into our home!  Have a wonderful day!
