We've been working on our living room for a few months, now. My goal was to incorporate a little bit of English Cottage and Farmhouse style. The biggest change that we've made since moving in was adding wainscoting to our walls. We opted to paint the lower half a solid, pure white. My hope was to lighten up our living room. I think my favorite decorative change, though, was buying buffalo check curtains. I'm kind of obsessed with buffalo check! A few things that helped pull the look together:
- Neautral Colors as the base, fun colors for accents! I went with turquoise and light green.
- Adding buffalo check seems to check off both cottage AND farmhouse style!
- Adding a few rustic and vintage elements. Namely, the vintage window!
- And can't of course my Magnolia wreath that gives a nod to Fixer Upper!
We also added the wainscoting to our kitchen/dining and hallway area. It really changed the look and added to depth to each of the rooms.
