Living Room Decor Updates

Hello all!

I'm coming to you today with a few new scenes from my living room! Ever since taking the holiday decorations down in January I've been tweaking my living room a bit, adding new pieces, moving things around, and overall making the space feel fresh for the coming Spring season.

The first major change is this amazing, textural round mirror I snagged from Ballard Designs. What attracted me to it was the way it's adds texture, lightness and glitz all in one. I wanted something with a lot of interest to become a focal point on this wall and I think this mirror does the trick! Unfortunately, I scored this mirror on a major sale just as it was being discontinued from Ballard, but they have a few more architectural, interest-adding mirrors that I love here, here and here.

The next thing that I shook up just a bit was my bookshelf! I always feel tired of my arrangements on here after a season or two. Right now I'm really loving the mostly uniform palette of blacks, whites and cream/tan colors here.

Next up, I changed up my pillows and made my first purchase from Magnolia's Hearth and Hand at Target! I couldn't resist this amazing woven wall decoration from their collection. I think it adds so much texture (do you see the theme here yet?) and natural interest, without making the space feel too farmhouse. I wanted to infuse my space with a more natural, textural feel, like all the people who create amazing farmhouse inspired designs do, while still keeping the space feel more tailored (which is more my style). I think this woven wall decor and my new mirror pull that off perfectly!

I scored the blue gingham pillow covers at a Pottery Barn outlet for $12 each! $12 EACH! Can you believe it? I almost bought these exact pillow covers last summer, too. I might be pushing the season a little bit with these, but I'm loving the way the brighten up my living room.

Last but not least I hopped on board the decorating pillow in a basket styling trend, and I couldn't love it more. I bought this pillow on my honeymoon to France, from the most charming artist who had the most charming boutique. She creates these pillows herself from vintage fabrics, and screen prints them with her own illustrations. The pillow is on the smaller side so it sat in my closet for a few months as I was unsure where to put it, but now it's found the perfect home.

Don't you love how spaces can evolve over time? The living room isn't the only space in my apartment that's been getting a mini face lift. Expect to see scenes from my entryway and bedroom coming soon!

Have any of you freshened up your space recently? Let me know in the comments below!

With Love, Katie.


  1. I love what you changed up! I just did this myself and it's amazing what a few subtle changes can do to freshen up a space. The mirror is my favorite!
    You summarized exactly how I feel about the farmhouse trend! I love all the textures and neutrals but I like a more tailored look too.

  2. That mirror is gorgeous, and I love how the basket weaves create a natural look. Love the new addition from Centuries Clayworks!
