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. Now that I’m a homeowner I’m the total opposite. I want my house to feel warm, cozy and homey. I feel like rustic, “farmhouse” looking decor gives that vibe, so that’s what I’m going for in our living room!
First comes paint color. Right now the walls are white which is pretty, but it’s just kind of “blah.” I personally think paint makes the biggest difference in a room. I went back and forth between “Krypton,” and “Silvermist” for a while and I finally settled on “Krypton.” So far we’re loving it!
On to decor. I really struggle in this department. I have the hardest time looking at decorations in the stores and picturing how it is going to look inside the house. My plan is to go with mostly white and beige tones for our wall decor, pillows, curtains, etc. I do much better shopping online and I’m all about finding some good deals, so I’ve been buying a lot of things on Amazon.

Pinterest has been my BFF lately. Like I said, I’m awful at putting decorations and colors together; I turn to Pinterest for ideas all the time.
First, comes my fireplace/mantle area. I seriously had NO IDEA what the heck to do with it until I saw this picture from Design, Dining, and Diapers. Check out her blog. It’s amazing.

I’m almost done painting, and I’m soo excited to start turning our house into a home by decorating! Do y’all have any decor ideas, tips or tricks? Be sure to let me know, I’d love to hear them!
