apartment tour: living room

i'm so excited to finally share some photos of my new place with you! i'm taking you through the living room today.


i wanted some simple decor above my couch, so i decided to hang a few shelves and place some simple wooden picture frames on them. it's simple but fills the space nicely.
shelves: target & ikea | pillow cover: the lacey placey
i LOVE my coffee table. i added a simple tray, bowl with vanilla flavored coffee beans, and a ceramic owl. oh, and that shag rug, amazing.
coffee table: ikea | tray: target | owl: target | bowl: ikea | rug: ikea
i wanted to add something to the wall above the tv but didn't want any distracting art, so i thought mirrors would be a good idea. also, i die for those white candle sticks on the tv stand.
mirrors: target | candlesticks: ikea | lamp: target
and THIS is my re-upholstered chair!!! i love this thing. my mom and i recovered it so that it would be a "statement" piece in the living room. i'd say it gets the job done. 
chair: target | fabric: hancock fabrics
 more photos coming soon!

  29. Nice job! I've always wanted to tackle re-upholstery, but it seems like a daunting task. I don't know anyone that knows how to do it, either.

    Perhaps you and your mom could make a tutorial if you want to re-upholster something else?

    I have that same purple bowl from Ikea. I had it on my coffee table with some peppermint & butterscotch candies, but my dog was a Sneaky Sneakerson and would get into it.
