Gallery Wall Dreams

As you may or may not have noticed from my previous updates on the progress of our living room or various styling posts, there has been an area of our living room I've been hiding from you, folks. There may have been a glimpse of it in the original "embarking on the living room" post, but for the most part I haven't wanted to show you guys what it looks like, because, well, it really doesn't look a whole lot different than that original photo that was taken, oh I don't know, NINE MONTHS AGO.  Whole baby humans have been grown across the world since I told you there was going to be magnificent things happening with our living room, and almost nothing has changed with our TV wall.  I mean it's only the one part of the room we face pretty much all the time, and it's not like its the very first thing anyone sees when entering our apartment (please detect any and all sarcasm in that sentence).  So here it is in all its glory:

Pillow Projects: The Classic Plaid

Earlier this week I posted about styling the couch in the living room.  While there are a lot of really great home decor items out there, sometimes they come with a pretty steep price tag to get that trending style.  I've seen a lot of really awesome throw pillows out there in the world and sometimes the number on the price tag is a little overwhelming and quite stress-inducing.  I find myself

Space Styling: Styling the Couch

The weather is just starting to turn cooler around here, but as usual the weather can't make up it's mind— some days it is just above freezing, and others I feel silly wearing this pom pom hat outside because its so warm!  Regardless, its cozy week here on the blog and I'm kicking it off with a fun late
