Decorating My “Formal” Living Room

I’ve been working on our “formal” living room since we moved in 6 months ago. And by working, I actually mean staring at an empty room. It was my least favorite room of our house at first and started to be an extension of our toy room (meaning that it was a dumping ground for ALL the toys 😬). I finally decided to purchase items for the room and I am LOVING how it is turning out! We didn’t want it too formal considering we have three young children but we did want a space that was clean and cozy for us to enjoy! All of my items I chose were on sale and reasonably priced so it didn’t cost a fortune to update the room. Definite win there! Here are some of my faves of the room:

Chair // Pillow // Throw Blanket

This wingback chair with the nail head trim is my FAVORITE purchase! I got it on sale for more than 60% the originally price of $699! It is comfy and gorgeous, I was shocked at the quality of this chair considering the price I paid. These gold accent pillows from Target are another one of my faves. Adds just a little sparkle to the room. Shocker- the throw blanket is from Target as well.

Vase // Evergreen Fillers

It’s no secret that Joanna Gaines is my hero. I could seriously buy her whole line of items at Target. Here I have the gold splattered “green” (they call it green, I would call it more “spa” blue color) vase. I added evergreen fillers, also from the Hearth & Home line at Target. So pretty for winter!

Marble Coaster

I received these marble and brass monogram coasters as a gift and I absolutely love them. Marble and brass are so trendy these days which is perfect for our house because it was built during the prime of the marble and brass days in the 90’s!

So there it is – a peek inside our new formal living room. Links to the other items pictured are below:
