… Hello again, today I’m sharing all about living rooms. I thought this could kind of be a on stop shop. You can shop at the bottom of this post, easy decor items to update your space are linked below! Here are 3 main tips to update or refresh a living room:
1. Paint – Giving your walls/trim a fresh coat of paint will change the look and feel of the whole room. I recommend sticking to neutral colors on the walls. If you love a pop, you could use a contrast color above your sofa wall or fireplace wall. Here’s a great example:

2. Lighting- Updating the lighting in the space can instantly change the style of the room. Add modern lighting for a modern feel. Don’t be afraid to mix styles, it gives the space added character. Here’s an example, I love how she used the bead chandelier as a statement piece.

3. Rugs-whether you have carpet or gorgeous hardwood flooring, anchoring the space with a area rug is needed. It’s fun to add a pop of color as well. I love layering rugs in spaces for added coziness. Here’s a example, I love the vintage rug. I also love that their are “vintage inspired” rugs out that doesn’t have the price tag as a true vintage rug, I have linked a few favorites below.

Here is our current living room view, I the coziness of our layered rugs. Our rug is vintage inspired. I found this one at Southeastern Salvage, for a fraction of the cost of a true vintage rug. I love the color it adds to the space.
I hope that this inspires you! You can update your living space without spending a lot of money. I have found a lot from Facebook Marketplace as well as thrift shops. It’s fun mixing old with new. Here’s some of my favorite budget decor items:
