I am so happy and proud to say that I have finally gotten the living room of our new house decorated to how I dreamt it to be! When we first moved in, the walls were all white, which was fresh and nice to see as a home buyer, but once the title change to our names, we were itching to add some of our own personality and creativity to the space. It seems many of our friends are moving into new homes all at once. One person I know was trying to explain to me how to buy a repossessed property; looks like he managed to get one at a really good price but, as he told me, there are pros and cons to buying property this way.
First things first, I wanted to do a dark feature wall. We had dark walls in our previous home and we loved how they added depth and elegance to the space. Justine and I have always wanted an L-shaped sectional sofa as well, so that was a must-have in our new living room. I found this beautiful, modern sectional from Rove Concepts and they were gracious enough to partner with me to help furnish our space! Named the “Antonio Modular Sectional“, this sofa can be arranged and rearranged in all sorts of different configurations to suit your space. As you can see, we’ve done a large L-shape with ours, which I had fabricated in “Malmo Modern Felt” with matte black legs. You could use the ottoman section as just that, but we wanted it to add length to the sofa and I also wanted to do a round marble coffee table. This one is the “Evelyn” from Rove Concepts. It’s crafted in a stunning, solid white Carrara marble, with black metal legs.
To complete the look, I layered 2 cowhide rugs that we already had. I like the contrast of pairing the 2 together. I also added a few feather throw pillows to the sofa to give some more texture, dimension and of course, comfort.
The Chanel-inspired art piece on the wall was part of another collaboration I did, with Inktuitive and it has already been quite a conversation starter. If you haven’t checked out their selection of motivational art, you definitely should!
Check out more photos of the space and how I’ve set it up (for now!) below and let me know what you think!
Even Sofia is loving the new sofa!
