This space is like my sacred space and I looked through so many living room decor ideas to get here. I don’t mean that in the way that most would take it – that it’s always clean or it’s pristine or it’s always peaceful. I mean that this is where my life happens. The living room is where we spend most of our time, so it’s almost always a little messy. There are dishes on the coffee table, there are graham cracker crumbs on the floor.
Our Couch Choice
But we didn’t let that keep us from decorating it exactly like we wanted to. Now let’s be honest, we all love a good white couch, but that is NOT what we chose for this space for a million reasons, most of which have tiny toddler feet or four paws. After looking at so many living room decor ideas, we opted for the comfy super deep Restoration Hardware style real leather couches. The more wear they get, the better they look. Scratches and scrapes just rub right out of them.
The love seat of the set holds a lot of sentimental value because this is what we started with in our first apartment together – our first step to the farmhouse living room we have today. It was expensive, I mean really expensive on a one salary couple just starting out, but we knew we would have it forever so we wanted quality. Stupid purchase? Maybe. But we loved it and it was our pride and joy (haha seems silly to say of a couch). This couch kind of set the tone for our future decor. We now have the full sized couch to complete the set and have worked our whole living room around them.

My style is Restoration Hardware meets West Elm. Very cozy and deep rich tones mixed with midcentury modern pieces. For me it’s all about a balance of deep and cozy and crisp and clean. I love both elements and the two pair so well together. They mix perfectly to make my living space me.
