Happy Monday everyone! A new week is here – they have just been flying by lately. This weekend was filled with catching up + getting things in order after being away for the last week.. I was in Charleston for a blogger trip and then flew to Miami for a quick 36 hours to work on a huge launch of a project I have coming soon. Something that I am SO excited to share with you all and has really been happening behind the scenes for over a year now. I. Cannot. Wait!
One of the things I worked on this weekend was my living room – it needed a good spring refresh. We may have gotten a 6 inch snow fall this weekend, but I was determined to make things fresh inside. I’ve been struggling with SAD like crazy the last few weeks and knew I needed to change up the scenery here in my apartment since we still have at least 2 more months of cold, gloom, dead everything.
I turned to my favorite spot to grab a bunch of things on a good budget – World Market. I’m loving the whole moroccan inspired vibes happening right now with the crochet, macrame, prints, and more, so that’s exactly what I grabbed! Lots of texture, light colored patterns, and greenery to help things look more alive and bright in here. and I just L-O-V-E the way it all turned out!
Giving my space a good spring decor refresh also helped me get rid of some of the “clutter” I had laying around after the winter season.. in real life, this looks like taking it out of my living room + just moving it over to the dining area.. but trust me when I say it won’t stay there long. Detoxing the space you guys! (Side note: I’m on a major detox kick in all areas of life: my home, things, negativity, people.. you name it. If it’s not positively impacting/affecting me or building me up in some way then it has to go.)
The core of my room always stays the same – couch, ottoman, and rug. But as the seasons change, I switch in different pillows, throws, decorative objects, and little things to pull the room together. I tend to keep things pretty neutral (as you all always know!) but I love mixing textures and patterns in to bring the room to life! World Market has such a great variety of pieces from all over that you can mix and match to really come up with your own unique style + take on a room!
When I moved into this unit, I was so excited about the fireplace/mantel situation. I decided not to mount my TV on top since I wanted to have freedom to decorate it how I want with the change of seasons.. and I am SO GLAD that I did this. I think once I move into a house with a fireplace/mantel (Lord willing!) I’ll probably make the same decision. It’s such an attention grabbing area of the room that I really wanted to be able to mix things up how I wanted.
I grabbed this gold mirror from World Market back around the holidays and love that it transitioned perfectly right into my spring decor – it’s a fun metallic touch with the primarily moroccan neutrals I have going on. I added this wooden piece of artwork to the mix and then updated my baskets! I love that this one has a cover so that I can store things without the room looking messy.
My couch is one of my favorite places in my apartment. It’s just the epitome of cozy + home to me. I spend mornings doing my devotions here, Kris and I have had many intimate conversations here, I’ve shared meaningful moments with girlfriends, and it’s where I plop at the end of a long day. If the rest of my home is a mess and disarray, I always try to keep my couch put together – with lots of pillows and cozy throws. I’ve mixed things up every season but I think this combo is my favorite to date. I’m obsessed with this fringe trim pillow and was actually thinking of getting one for my bedroom too (that needs a major refresh!) I ordered 1 of these mongolian fur gray pillows around Christmas and decided to grab another for this spring refresh! It’s amazing how different things can look when you pair them with other colors/textures.
You can shop all of my pieces below + I’ve rounded up some of the other pieces I’ve got my eye on right now too. I really want this gorgeous canopy for my room (a fun little spring/summer touch, right?!) and am about to order the Moroccan Wedding Blanket while it’s back in stock!
