Farmhouse Decor Inspiration: Living Room

We have lived in our home or about four months now, and our house is nowhere near being decorated the way I want it. I know everything takes time, so I have decided to take on one room at a time. I thought the living room would be a good place to start because that is we spend most of our time. When I was younger I always thought I would want a bright, modern looking home.
