I thought it’d be fun to share our current living room setup here on the blog. Home decor is something that I absolutely LOVE and I’ve kind of found my “style” in the past couple years, and you know that’s an exciting thing, don’t you think? Sure, there is the ongoing list of things I need (a coffee table! A floor lamp!) that is pretty much always going to exist, but if I waited for it to be “perfect” to share, honestly, I would just never share. If you get my drift.
Perfection is overrated. And also unattainable.
SO. I thought I’d just go for it: our living room, decked out for fall (give me all of the white/ Cinderella pumpkins!) and as it is, right now. And I kind of love it.
Especially with that cute little rugrat you see there. She’s my favorite part. ;)
Another favorite is this gorgeous rug we were sent from Rugs USA. I’m kind of obsessed. Word to the wise: it’s 100% wool, so it SHEDS LIKE CRAZY, but just vacuum and vacuum and vacuum some more, and eventually it’ll stop shedding. Ours still is, so we just lay a blanket down when the babies play in the living room. :)
These gorgeous cactus prints (this and this) are from Minted, and I LOVE THEM. They bring a piece of California into our home, which I’m all about. The colors are just gorgeous, too.
The horse print is another that we were sent from Minted. My grandpa always had horses, and it reminds me of his ranch, which brings back so many sweet memories. It’s so dreamy, too, isn’t it? I’m in love. Minted seriously has the best selection of art! I want them all!! If you remember, I have quite a few in the nursery too that I just love.

How would you describe your home decor style?
SO beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I’m right with ya in the never ending list of items still needed to “complete” the space. We recently had house guests and I felt embarrassed to have the same $7.99 red, green, and blue pillows from Lowes from our second rental… 6 years ago. Sometimes you just gotta love what you have. And know you’ll change them out when you find the right piece. I love your very personal touches. We take a similar approach. Bison, wooden crates, decorative greyhound statue on the mantle. It has to feel personal. I guess that’s how I describe my style motto.
Aw thank you so much!! I love what you said, though: You gotta love what you have! And I am right there with you- the personal touches are the most special ones. :) They’re what make you unique! Love it.
I love your living room! Those minted prints are really beautiful and I can’t wait to purchase some one day.
Aren’t they gorgeous?! Some of my favorites!
love love this room!!! it looks so warm
and cozy and inviting. and girl. hold off on the coffee table, i say!!! they are the worst ideas with babies! i try my hardest to avoid coffee table injuries and we ended up with one inevitably. sigh!!
Ahhh thank you for that tip!!! We just got rid of our ottoman (it was fabric) and I’m missing having something there, I reallyyyy want a wood coffee table, but now that you mention that- we are holding off, for sure!!
Your living room is gorgeous! It’s so light and crisp looking! How is stays looking that perfect is beyond me! I’m constantly battling cat hair and bits of breadstick/other baby food being left on the carpet. We have a coffee table but have started pushing it to one side as it was such a hazard. We also have a jumperoo which is a massive eyesore and takes up sooo much space, but is great to keep my 10 month old in one place and out of harms way! I love your style, keep the great posts coming xxx
Haha GIRL. You just can’t see the crumbs and bits of food and cat hair scattered all over, but believe me IT IS THERE. ;) And oh gosh, I wish we had a jumperoo! Sophie is a MAD WOMAN and always on the move!!
