When designing a room from scratch, I have fallen in love with making inspiration boards to help me get an idea of what pieces and colors would go together. This final board did not look like this in the beginning. I started with paint colors I liked and went from there. We both really liked the lighter and neutral tone of SW Repose Grey and decided to paint it throughout our whole house!
Next, I added the Autumn Lane brick sample for our fireplace which also happens to be the brick on the majority of our exterior.
In order to fill my farmhouse loving heart I would have shiplap all over the room but after some compromise, we ended up only adding it to our custom built in next to the fireplace. I might still try to find another spot to add some more later. 🙂
Now the other pieces like furniture and decor were all things pulled from my Pinterest and Instagram inspiration. I didn’t add all of these exact pieces but was able to stay pretty close to our inspiration board. It really helped to have this handy while we were both out and about looking for specific things. We did end up buying this exact leather sofa and LOVE it! Leather just suits our lifestyle. I have major respect to the mommas that can rock a white fabric sofa but I can confess that I’m not that disciplined to handle the upkeep.
You can find sources for the other items like the rug here.
I will try and post a photo of our actual living room soon so you can compare!
