Look what I found at HomeGoods!

I just finished a living room I have been working on for a couple of months. What I love about this room the most is that every single accessory including the artwork came from HomeGoods. It excites me to be able to pull together a room that looks much more expensive than it actually is. 



We replaced everything in the room except for the existing wall color, carpet and the television. My client and I spent two days together - one to select furniture and a new area rug, and another to purchase accessories and style it.


Normally when I style a room I use a combination of accessories from HomeGoods and Target and then fill in with a few items from the more expensive stores where I need to. But I got lucky this time and was able to find everything I needed from a few HomeGoods stores.



 Here are a couple of photos of the room before we started:



The client loved the feel of her existing sofa but it was just too big for the room. She wanted to have another sofa that was just as comfortable. I helped her select one that had cleaner lines and the off-white leather helped formalize the room without taking away the comfort. We moved the sectional to the family room which we will be working on next.




We selected side chairs at West Elm during their 30% off sale and I had custom pillows and a new window seat cushion made while we waited for delivery.


The area rug was from West Elm and the side tables and coffee table as well as the media cabinet were from Crate and Barrel.


The biggest eyesore in the room was the television. Putting the media cabinet underneath to anchor it made a world of difference. Here is the TV wall before:


There are still a few adjustments that need to be done with the TV cords and components but you can see how much better it looks already:


I love the way this room turned out and I can't wait to get started on their family room.


Happy Monday everyone!

Thanks Mary Ann! Yeah, the rug is great - we took home a swatch and it was nice but the full rug in person is fantastic - really soft too!
Thanks Kimberly! :D :D :D
