Living Room Updates
Our living room is where we spend all of our time, we gather as a family, and we make most of our memories. It is the focal point in our home when you walk right into it so it is a space that I spend a lot of my energy giving the feel and look that I want. I want a space that feels calm, peaceful, neutral, and cozy. I want this for others when they walk into my home but more-so for my own family. I want a space where we can create memories, that we want to spend time, and that brings a sense/feeling of love.
If you saw my stories a few weeks ago you know that our oversized fan in our living room went out a little over a year ago. When we built our house we put 80% of our lighting budget on that beloved fan so when it stopped running (yes we checked the batteries everywhere) it was a little frustrating but knowing me and my love for updating my house I was excited to do something new. I started researching lighting and looking at inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest.
As I searched and searched I ultimately came to my sweet best friend has the most beautiful house and so I always look to her for inspiration and her opinion. She has a similar light to the one that we installed and I love the way it adds interest to her space while still giving open space and not feeling too heavy. We started looking on AllModern together feeling out my options for new lighting. While our space is so big it narrowed down our choices quite a bit but we found this similar but larger light to hers. We knew it would be perfect for my living room.
Zach installed the light a couple weeks ago and it has been something that I have loved since the moment that I saw it. It has brought so much interest to my home without feeling heavy or overwhelming. It is the perfect balance of neutral yet modern. This space is always changing a little bit but I feel like that is okay because I am always changing a little bit too and so is my family.
