So, About that Living Room

Do I dare say we'll be home in a week? A week?! Yes, I'm pretty hopeful that the 14th is a date that will stick as our return date. If is isn't, well what is another week... or two... after being gone for over 5 months? But yes, I'd put money on the 14th. 

For those of you who are new around here I apologize for claiming to be a DIY blog in addition to a baking and family blog yet haven't been DIYing. I PROMISE that this will change once I break out of Japan and find myself back in the great state of Washington! Trust me, there are many plans in the works! 

For example, after owning our house for a year and a half we finally started to do something with our living room right before we left for Japan. I was trying to find pictures of it with {this} couch and {this} bookcase we purchased but I guess the holidays and packing to move abroad for 5+ months didn't allot for any time to take some updated photos. 

I'm pretty excited to decorate this blank slate but not sure what direction I would like to take it in. Here is a collection of some of my inspirations for what I'm kind of envisioning:

Top to Bottom, Left to Right
1  /  2  /  3  /  4
5  /  6  /  

There are a few things going on here, this I know. I love the chemist vases, the mechanical gears, as well as the botanical prints! What's with all the science?! I'm not necessarily going for a theme but would like some sort of put together look. You know those rooms you walk into and it just feels right? I want that feeling when I walk through my front door into our living room. But does a room ever really feel complete?

  1. I would love a combination of all of those, as well! They are so fun!! And, no! I don't think a room every feels complete. *sigh*

  2. those are great! The botanical prints are fantastic. Our living room in our old house was done in greys with mustard accents. I just love that color scheme! HAPPY DECORATING!

    1. Oh fun! What are your living room colors now?!
