Design Board (glam living room)

I'm working towards launching an interior decorating business early next year.  In preparation, I'll be working on some design boards and I thought it'd be fun to share them with you.  My goal is to provide stylish designs that are budget-conscious.  I hope to share a new design with you every week and I'll list the source and price for each of the items I include.

So this week, I worked on a fun, glam, navy, pink, and gold living room.



We all know that gold hues are making a major comeback right now, and I have to say I'm really drawn to the trend.  It has me looking around at all my brushed nickel and wanting to change things up! Also really popular are the big, bold, geometric patterns on rugs, curtains, pillows, lampshades. I love big, bold, patterns, and I don't know if I'll ever tire of using them.  But...one recommendation I have is to limit their use to things like pillows and lampshades instead of using them on more expensive items like furniture and rugs.  If you're someone who's on a strict budget and can't swap out your couch every few years, it's best to sick with something neutral that will carry you through many styles.  You can always update the look with those fun pillows, curtains, and accessories.

  2. Hooray! How exciting! Maybe you can help with my bedroom to den conversion. I'm lost for what to do with the closet!

  3. I love it. I was actually looking at that coffee table this past weekend. It's so pretty, and I thought it would go well with my new sofa...but we already have some dark wood pieces. I love the navy and pink!
