My Living Room Tune Up on a Dime!

I’ve been craving a little makeover in my living room for quite a while. A few weeks ago I totally rearranged the furniture and made it feel like a completely new space, but it just didn’t sit right so I changed it back. I decided a little tune up was all the room needed.

I started with the bookshelf. I kept a neutral color scheme of white, black, silver and brown. Made clean lines with books, and used trusty cake stands in abundance for height.

This nest is a Easter decoration, but I decided to glue it to an empty frame for a more permanent look.

I backed some of my books in leftover wrapping from Christmas. Love silver and white together!

All my dark and colored pillows went away, and I gathered all my whites. My sister in law Kimberly make me some covers out of some neutral napkins. The textures really pop against eachother.

Then I just needed some life. A mum plant from my grocery store was only $3 and has already given me weeks of full bloom.

My neutral room is bright and airy. No need for color here!

Mixing things up can breath new life into a room, and you don’t need to shop for anything you don’t already have. Pull from other rooms, and go shopping in your storage space. Even using other seasons decorations the right way can do just the trick!

    I like the idea of refreshing a space in the spring. It’s nice to see that it can be done so beautifully in neutrals. :)

    Where is the bookcase from? Ikea?

    I love your nest in the frame and I agree, flowers always bring spring into the house.

    Hi Sarah! I love how you styled your bookshelves! I have the same but in the dark brown. Wondering if you would share the paint color for this room?
    Thanks bunches!
