It's been two months since the last installment of our Moving Inspiration series, when I told you that we'd decided to put our house hunting on hold until the spring due to me being pregnant to the point of uselessness, the new baby on his way, and my husband's winter and early spring touring schedule with the band. We realistically won't be in a position to move until probably May because of these things, but just in the last few days we've started looking at listings again. Free time is incredibly scarce right now, but it feels good to be back at it when we're able. It genuinely bummed me out to halt our search back in late November, because I am the type of person who needs to feel constantly productive and finds procrastination to be majorly anxiety provoking. But I'm also glad we didn't rush into something just to get it over with. And while I need to be patient a little longer, I'm stoked to be back to looking for design and decor inspiration, room by room. For those who haven't been following along, so far I've shared my favorite kitchens, bathrooms, home offices/studios, and bedrooms. And today I'm turning my focus to the room where we all tend to spend the most time: the living room.
As with the other rooms I've featured, when it comes to living rooms and family rooms I am most attracted to an overall minimalist aesthetic with a subtle bohemian vibe. I like bright spaces, neutrals (white, grey, and black are my color besties), and clean lines with touches of bold patterns, metallics, and excessive house plants. Now that we have two little ones, I'd prefer our living room to be spacious - even if the rest of the house is small - so there's room for, you know, actual living and stuff. Oh, and if we're being picky, high ceilings would be nice. And a fireplace would be appreciated too. But really, I think we could do something fun with anything we're given as long as the potential to make it our style is there. (And as I've mentioned before, I'm all about any excuse to use power tools!) I think my favorite room above is #6. The white feels really fresh, and I love how the bold colors from the throw pillows and houseplants so perfectly set it off. Oh, and that table! I want to live there.
What does your ideal living room look like? Do any of the spaces above appeal to you? Who else is house hunting?
