Once the bones of the living room were in place, it was time to decorate with some personal touches that made the room come together. These are just a few of my favorite finds:
Wedgwood vase – found at a Housing Works Design on a Dime event
World globe – found at the same event
Sailor – John Derian shop
Bronze apple – Etsy
I always like to have candles lit at night.
We found the rug at Target and the coffee table at Kmart – if you can believe that!
The room is fairly large and I needed some type of art to put over the couch that could work in the space. I really like the idea of wall collages that use an eclectic yet coherent mix of items.
I did some searching around Etsy to find items that would make a cohesive and interesting collage. I also incorporated a piece that I had in my old apartment. Some frames were found at Goodwill and others at Michael’s and I think the result looks pretty good! So for under $100 I have a unique, personalized art collection on my wall. 🙂
