Technically, this isn’t our living room, but actually, the opposite side of our bedroom that we have transformed into a living space. Once I moved in and we took over the downstairs area, we realize it had a lot of potential to make the second portion of our room a quaint space that was simplistic but had a lot of character.
Here are a few things we did to brighten up our space! Plus, links below for items.
I am passionate about art and I like to show that in a room. Whether it is a dramatic Syliva Ji photo, an original piece from a vendor while traveling, or a piece that I made myself, they make great conversational pieces. And of course, sentimental photos that always make you smile. For me, that’s a picture of my dog Tycho buried in the sand.

One of the first things you might notice is Josh’s climbing gear. We needed a place to put it and decided it would be a cool idea to highlight it on the wall. After searching a few ideas of Pinterest, Josh made this cooling gear rack that matches nicely with the room.

If I had it my way, everything would probably be white and black with some wood accents! But Josh is a little more lively than me, so we needed to work in some color. We happened to be in a plant store in Petaluma when we came acrossÂ this blanket. We both were immediately attracted to it and realized it complimented both our colors; my black and white, with Josh’s orange and gray.
