This is my dream living room:
I just wanted to see if you’re paying attention.
I love living rooms that feel comfy and inviting, and I’m obsessed with white wall living rooms.
White rooms, which you can often find in homes with the farmhouse or cottage decor look, leave so much room to accessorize with colors.
This one is nice, but a bit too neutral.
White Living Room Decorating Ideas
I would add a huge, colorful picture above the fireplace, like I did above Landon’s desk.
I like the idea of old signs that make a big statement in this next picture. And that white repurposed coffee table is just wonderful and quirky.
Here is one of the signs we had in our previous home in the kitchen:
This is a cute idea with the little chairs, but you either need to have a lot of little kids in the house to pull this off or friends who don’t mind sitting on kids’ chairs when they come over. :)
Instead, I had a lot of inexpensive ottoman cubes for extra seating in our previous homes that I pushed under the coffee tables when we didn’t need them.
Here they are under the table — that’s Landon when he was 2, and this apartment was soo tiny, the “living room” wasn’t much bigger than what you see here.
He learned to walk in this apartment — which should be apparent looking at the bumper car cushions I added to the coffee table. First-time mom :)
Those storage ottoman came in handy every time we had the Bleasdale Clan or friends visiting. Another plus: they were hiding a lot of Landon’s toys.
In our next apartment, I used two black storage ottoman under this IKEA table, which was so practical because I could make it larger in a second and we could use it to seat more people in our eat-in-kitchen.
