It's a new year why not create a new look for your home? I wanted recreate this bright, fresh living room on a budget. All of the white in the room is so clean and airy, yet there are just enough warm wood accents to make the room cozy and comfortable. It's a casual space, that's for sure. What's better than that, especially after all of the formality of the holidays?
Most of the accessories in the space are less than $100. Using a few new accessories is a great cost-effective way to give your existing living room a completely different look. A new throw blanket and pillow, some new candlesticks or vase, and just a color tweak here and there—such a simple way to update a space.
The most expensive piece in the room is obviously the sofa. But when said sofa is made of vintage leather, it's definitely worth a bit of a splurge. The mix of high and low is a great way to personalize your space and to make it seem less like a showroom and more like a curated space created over time.
