Since getting our new couch, all I can think about are new accessories to add to the living room. The leather really darkened the room so now I want to change things up a bit, starting with the rug.

Right now we just have a plain jute rug and with the wood floors, brown couches, brown end tables and brown coffee table, there is just too much brown up in here. I really like this bold geometric graphic from Urban Outfitters and as far as rugs go it’s super affordable at $89 for a 5×7. I think the gray and white will add a nice tonal contrast while the graphic breaks up the flow of the room in a good way.

Next, I feel like the art over the couch needs to change. So, I’m really inspired by this DIY abstract art by Jordan Ferney at Oh Happy Day. I would like to do more blues and greens than yellow and pink but the design of that art is exactly what I’m looking for.

And, as I mentioned a long time ago, the credenza still needs to be painted so I think I’ve decided on a pretty mint color like this dresser featured on Houzz.

I’ve got some time off work soon and I’m hoping that will be the perfect time to complete it! I’ll keep you posted.
