BOLD LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER

A year ago I was trying to decide what kind of space it was that I really wanted. Most people typically navigate towards a home vibe that feels tranquil with neutral colors and natural materials. While that is certainly beautiful, and maybe  what a high-strung, meditation-deprived person like myself needs, I decided what I really wanted was a space that made me feel the way I do when I’m wearing my highest heals and my boldest outfit, while listening to my favorite song on the loudest volume. Why? Well, when I think of some of my happiest days I think back to my very early 20’s when I always looked my best, did whatever I wanted, and had a drive like no other. My nights were filled with adventure from open-mic nights, art shows, and drunk visits to the Washington monuments…my days consumed with my love for drawing, photography, and making my first apartment my own little home.  I spewed confidence, creativeness, and a thirst for inspiration all over the place. That’s the version of me I forever want to channel.

It’s hard to choose what I love most about our new living room. I’d have to say it’s between my bright orange print I found at the thrift store, my David bust that I splattered with hot pink paint, my rug, my DIY-ed coffee table, or my ultra violet candles……SO….just about everything in this room, including the pig. My husband insisted on this Ikea sectional and even though I didn’t love it, I have to admit, it’s incredibly practical and really effing comfortable! What do you think?
