Our Living Room {Update}

It should come as no surprise that I’m in full-on nesting mode with a baby on the way. When we purchased our condo and I did an initial tour here on the blog, I knew there were a lot of changes that I wanted to make! One of the first was getting rid of our Ikea couch. It worked for us for awhile but it wasn’t very comfortable and it was small! I thought picking a new couch would be easy, but in all honesty, it took forever! We wavered so much! Sectional or no? Grey or natural linen? Chaise or no chaise? It was agony! However, I have to say, I’m so pleased with our final decision to get this grey sectional from Haverty’s. The rug is from RugsUSA and the mirror is from IKEA.

I found this console table for a steal from Burlington Coat Factory and decorated it with odds and ends from Home Goods. The picture is from Ross and the small sheepskin rug is from IKEA. Eventually I’d like to get two square ottomans to go under the console table and a small chair for in front of the fireplace. I’d also like to get a round ottoman — I love this tufted one from Pier1 and of course, curtains.

This room is definitely a work in progress but it’s come a long way!

    Looking good! Love the colors together. I am curious too, do you have the mirror secured against the wall somehow? I’ve been trying to convince my husband to get a full length mirror (probably from IKEA) for ages and put it in the hallway and he is super against it because he thinks it will fall over and shatter and our walls are concrete, so drilling in is difficult.

      Hey Katie! Actually the mirror is just propped against the wall but it’s heavy enough that it stands there very sturdy. I think the only thing that could/would move it would be a serious earthquake (hopefully none of those happen anytime soon!) but if it didn’t have the traction and sturdy bottom that it does, I might be more concerned!

    We have that same exact sectional! My dog takes up the whole chaise part of it 🙂
