As with everything else, my goal these days is always simplicity. But I wanted to mix a few different mediums on this one, as well.

5 Living Room Decorating Ideas That You Will Absolutely Love!

Readers, you are long due for a tour of our living room. Yes, I have almost finished the redo, but there are a few little things that I just haven’t gotten to yet, and they are holding me up! I’m hoping to get everything finalized to share with you soon! But in the meantime, when Julie Austin asked to share a post on living room decorating ideas, I thought maybe I might get even more ideas for ours! HA! And I was most certainly right! Check it out…

The living room is called the living room for a reason. It’s that part of your home where you can just sit back and enjoy comfortable hours of leisure time with your friends and family. You can watch long hours of television on a snowy day even take a nap every day for some time. 

Therefore, your living room should be a room which would display tons of comfort and an atmosphere of tranquility. Often we tend to confuse how we should go about decorating the living room with how we should not go over budget at the same time. Check out these 5 amazing ideas to decorate your living room as per your desire!

Go Contemporary

Contemporary color patterns are always fun. Home décor experts consider decorating the living room to be the best room in your home; you can get as  creative as you want!

From wall hangings to decoration pieces; from bookshelves to furniture; you can experiment with it all.  However, you need to make sure that the overall look of your living room does not go out of proportion, as this will get awkward.

It’s Time for Fall…Inside our Home!

A million thanks to At Home, for partnering with all of us on this Fall Home Tour! #myreason

You may have heard me say that Fall is my favorite. Well, it’s true. I LOVE FALL. But, if there is one downfall of living in Florida, it’s that Fall is pretty hard to come by. I mean, seriously. It’s the beginning of October, and our highs are still in the 90’s. Yeah. 

So, when it comes to my love for Fall, I have to make the season change INSIDE my house. That’s #myreason for doing all this Fall decorating! When the calendar proclaims it Fall, I start baking all things pumpkin. I change my candles and soaps to Fall scents. Hey, I would even crank our air conditioner down if my husband would let me! 

So, if you wanna see, do come along with me for a tour of Fall…inside our home!

First of all, welcome to our home!

It’s your standard 4 bedroom 2 bath house, in a cozy little development where we know our neighbors, and the resident kids play football in our front yard because it’s the biggest!

The 2016 Fall Holiday Shelf!

Well, it’s been a while, folks! I know it’s the first day of Fall, and I’ve been pretty quiet. No worries, I’m still around – my days are simply full of poop and formula and naps and…BABIES!

The girls are doing so well! They actually just moved off the preemie charts onto the “regular baby” charts, and their pediatrician (and their mom and dad, of course) are thrilled with how well they’re progressing! We are so thankful!

But another thing I’m thankful for is FALL. If you’ve been around the blog at all, you know I LOVE FALL! It’s my favorite season, and I really talk it up. Especially in Florida. Where it’s still 90 degrees during the Fall, I HAVE to talk it up, right?!

Sooo…Happy FIRST DAY OF FALL to everyone! In honor of this blessed season, I wanted to share with you nothing less than my 2016 Fall Holiday Shelf! (Because giving birth to twin girls one-and-a-half-months early is no excuse for NOT decorating for Fall! At least around our house!) When this time of the year rolls around, it’s still #myreason for jumping into the season of decorating!

And I’m totally stoked to share this particular shelf design because the elements came from the awesome folks of At Home!

Now, if you’ve never been to an At Home store, stop right now, head over to www.athome.com and check it out! It’s like an enormous warehouse full of all things wonderful for your home, inside and out! Check out what I found for the shelf…

Don’t you LOVE the “coastal” look? (I mean, kinda paying tribute to the lovely state where I live with these Fall accents, right?)
