It’s been a little while since I’ve done a forever home update so, with less than a week until we close (eek!), I thought I would fill you in on some ideas I am putting together for our living room design. For a long as I could remember I’ve been obsessed with the idea of a green velvet sofa. I’m not sure why, but it is just one of those things that I have always had in the back of my mind that I would have in my home. While I would love to indulge my every wish, a green sofa just isn’t in the cards. But, what I am planning are some really cool green chairs (in jade) paired with this beautiful leather sofa that I have had my eye on for awhile as well. While this is our “formal” living room, these is noting formal about the way we live. I would never want people walking into our house and feeling as if they can’t kick back and relax. Mixing neutral browns, black and grays with the pop of green and gold accents will also give me blend of masculine and feminine and will transition into the rest of home nicely.
These chairs and sofa are probably more than I would have liked to spend, but our living room is the first room people will see when they enter our home. We have been saving and planning for this for this house for awhile now and I really want it to be just right. I did get to take advantage of some of the sales that happened this weekend and got a bit of a deal on the green chairs, as well as these side tables and this rug that starts around $100!. I will probably hold off on the sofa and see if I have better luck during the amazing sales that happen during Black Friday. See the thumbnails below to see what else I am planning for our living room and when we close on Tuesday I’ll be sharing a first look inside our new home, as well as a bunch of before pictures on my IG Stories!
