One of my favorite parts of newlywed life is playing interior designer within our shared space. I plan to take you along in the process through posts just like this one, starting today with living room inspiration for our first apartment! In June I shared how we’re starting with neutral furniture because it’s timeless and versatile. As a result, this has left plenty of room for creative expression with decorative accents!
While considering my aesthetic vision for our living room, I thought about its function too. We dream of hosting game nights in this space. It’s the place we retreat to after a long day of work to talk and relax. This is also the room where I enjoy quiet time almost every morning. As a result, I planned the space around the characteristics of being comfortable, cute, and welcoming with plenty of storage. We have a place for our books and Bible study reading, a place for Dillon’s gaming equipment, and a place for my quiet time items.
Because we invested in storage-friendly furniture above, we currently have a place for our books and Bible study reading, a place for Dillon’s gaming equipment, and a place for my quiet time items. There’s a space for board games, charging cords, candles, and a lighter.
I envision that rug, coffee table (ahem, I don’t want ottomans anymore), pretty end table tying our room together beautifully. I’m excited to continue making progress on our space and sharing pictures when it’s done!
Do you have any recommendations for pieces that are both pretty and decorative? Please share below, we would love to hear them!
