Farmhouse Living Room Decor: Room by Room Summer Series Week Three

It’s already week 3 of the Room by Room Summer Series and we are sharing our living spaces. (Last week was kitchens!) Come take a peek at our Farmhouse Living Room Decor.  It’s certainly nothing fancy, but we do enjoy this space for entertaining guests or snuggling up with a comfy blanket to watch a movie or two.

This is one of those rooms that only required minimal tweaking when we moved in. (Below is the room on move in day.) We really only removed the carpet to lay wood laminate floors and painted the trim. Then it was just a matter of putting in place our normal furniture, curtains, and decor!

Let’s start here at the TV. and work our way around the room, mmmkay? I’m in love with ladders and like to use them in our decor around the house. (Check out this ladder we made for our bathroom.) We found this old beauty at a garage sale.

In the corner, we placed our old slipper chair.  A few months ago, I gave it a makeover and I must say it is still looking pretty good!

The piano was my Mom’s. I was lucky enough to inherit this instrument and now our daughter is learning to play some beautiful music on it.  It is such a sentimental piece, but to be honest, I hate the color of the wood stain. However, I’m not brave enough to paint or re-stain for fear of ruining it, so like this, it will stay.

To try and tone down the color of the piano and brighten the area, I like to add shades of white and cream, such as the faux sheepskin, books, and candles.  For balance I added two DIY topiaries and my favorite magnolia wreath adorns the mirror above.

Our couch has definitely taken a beating over the years and you can tell.  However, it is still super comfy and perfect for movie night. And when it gets dirty, we can just pull the cover off and wash it. Since we have kids, pets, and light colored furniture, slipcovers are a must!

My favorite pillows right now are still the fun ones from my friend Kendra at Linen & Ivory. She has so many amazing options to choose from and pretty much all of them can be mixed and matched.

Don’t you just love tulips?  I think they are some of the prettiest, yet simple, flowers. These actually aren’t real, even though they look fairly convincing. I found them online for super cheap. (Purchase your own here!)

Finishing up this room decor tour is a photo of the view from our living space into our entry, which are basically the same room, just sectioned off by a big ol’ armchair.

So what do you think of our living room? As of right now, we really don’t have a lot of plans for this space, besides maybe some paint at some point. But we aren’t in any hurry with that. *wink*

    It’s beautiful! How sweet that you have that piano! And I think we have the same coffee table – I love the color of yours – do you know the color?

    • Erin

      Thank you so much, Melissa! The paint color we used for the coffee table is Polar Bear by Behr. It is my favorite white paint for furniture and I have used it on most of our white pieces!

  • Emily

    Your living room looks so cozy! I feel the same way about our piano – it’s kind of a honey oak stain and it doesn’t go with our decor at all, but I am terrified to paint it. I also struggle with how to decorate the top of it, but you’ve given me a few ideas :)
