I am so excited to finally fully share our new living room (you can see the before video here
!) We were SO excited to work with West Elm
on picking out furniture that feels like "us" since we've had mostly hand-me-downs at all of our other homes.
After watching Mad Men, we felt so inspired by all of the mid century homes in the show. We knew we wanted our living room to capture that vibe, with a mix of rustic vintage furniture and mid century pieces. When I saw the beautiful mid century Peggy Sofa
in this amazing cayenne color, I knew it was the perfect couch for the space. The Atlas Rug
added the rustic and cozy vibe we were going for, and from there we added a ton of small and special touches to make it feel more like our own!
West Elm Peggy Sofa / West Elm Atlas Rug / West Elm mid century side table / West Elm Mongolian Lamb Pillow Cover / Crosley record player
West Elm adjustable ladder / West Elm lantern / West Elm stump / Urban Outfitters pyramid shelf / West Elm snow globe
This room is much bigger than our last living room, so we had some empty space! We decided to dedicate a big portion to storing our records, which we love and use every day. We also thought this adjustable ladder
was the perfect solution to storing our New Yorker magazines, and also making good use of the corner!
I know this sounds ridiculous, but one of my favorite parts of our new living room is that the couch is actually comfortable! We've had so many uncomfortable leather couches & vintage tiny suede sofas in the past few years, that our friends were starting to give up on crashing. haha. seriously though, this couch is a great size and it is comfortable, which was much needed!
