Living Room Inspiration

So, big news… my husband and I have bought a house!
Our very first starter home. But, while beautiful, it will need quite a bit of work. So I am thinking about living room inspiration today.

The walls are white, it has one elaborate sconce and there are giant bay windows in the front.


A look like this would be great for us. Accent color of magenta, some splashes of pattern, with lots of neutrals.


First, I’m intending to repaint the framing and landing of the bay window.



I dont think I would want curtains that large. but I like the brown contrast on the window frames.


I would like to eventually make the landing of the bay windows some sort of seating area:



This is a GREAT inspiration photo, because having extra storage space would be a dream and a corner bay window seat would be oh so adorable.

I don’t knwo why I gravitate towards everything being white… bc I mean, hello stains. But I really do.

although I think those urns or vases on the sides are terribly tacky.


Anyway, stay tuned as I begin the long voyage of home renovation/design. and wish me luck!
