It’s been awhile that Ryan has been asking me to switch the living room up.  I haven’t moved the furniture around in here since we built the addtion 4 years ago and although I liked the look of it, it closed off the room!  I wasn’t sure I wanted the couch up against the window and chairs in front of the door, but wow it opened up this room! So I thought  I would share our living room sources with you:) 

When we switched the furniture around, we realized we needed a new rug because our other one went the other way and was too big for the space!  We were so excited to partner up with Boutique Rugs and get this new rug!  My must have list was a rug that was comfy and a rug that was cozy:)  We live in this room and the kids love laying on the floor for movie nights by the fire, so a shag was a must.  This rug is sooo beyond soft, and I couldn’t believe the price!  You can also use code 31Girl60 for 60% off until May 21st!

I’m also currently looking for a new coffee table, one that is a little smaller than this one, although we love the rustic look and feel of it!  I also love being able to bring in texuture and visual interest with decorating a coffee table! Coffee table books always look pretty and Joanna Gaines never dissapoints with her pretty books!  

Also, we get asked about this sofa a lot!  It is a Restoration Hardware sofa that we actually found on Craigslist.  And although it was a second hand purchase, we still paid more for it than this look alike here!  

We love that it fits our whole family with how long it is:)  We also were super picky when we were looking into chairs for the living room.  They couldn’t be that deep since they were in front of the door, and we also wanted them to swivel for tv viewing! These chairs were the perfect fit! 

And the last thing we get asked about all the time is this fan!  We love it and it makes a statement..but it’s a bit of a splurge.  Ryan surprised me with it for our 10 year wedding anniversary!  I think that’s about it!  Now I’m off to go paint these windows black!  Eek!!
