Kate's Living Room

Recently, Kate wrote to me about her living space:

Hi Lauren!

I love your blog/style and need your help again. You did an idea board for my family room and I loved how it gave me so many ideas. Now, I need some help with my living room. We recently put all of this furniture in there now we need to decorate. This is the first room people see when they walk in our house. I want it to make a statement but be inviting. I am drawn to color but feel that the furniture is pretty dark so I'd like to brighten the room. I want to use as much as the stuff we already have if possible. Maybe a mirror, plants, curtains (not sure how to do that with these shutters), rug, accessories, end/coffee/sofa table, art, etc. We need a new bookcase but we have to hide some things that have to be in that room so on the bottom there has to be a cupboard. Thanks so much!


I was so excited to work with Kate again. Here's what I came up with:

Rug - Serena & Lily
Patterned Pillow - Anthropologie
Solid Pillow - Crate & Barrel
Coffee Table - grounded
Mirror - Horchow
Vase - Anthropologie
Curtains - Curtainworks
Art - Etsy
Bookcase - Crate & Barrel
Accent Table - Urban Outfitters
Votive - Anthropologie


  1. LOVE that coffee table !


  2. I love that rug! nice work! And I could view your post on Violet's pictures but now I can't find the actual page on your site - but they are gorgeous! The black and whites are my favorite and absolutely stunning!
