Using A Print to Revamp Your Living Room
This my living room in my New York apartment, which I share with my two roommates, Kristen and Christine. I’ve been in the midst of giving our living room a makeover for…gosh, months and months now!
It all started with purchasing my new “adult” couches from West Elm last spring, and has kind of gone on bit by bit from there. I’ve always loved the casual, gathered look of a “gallery wall” arranged on a photo ledge. I think the art gallery feel of it is super cool, and as a renter, I love the freedom it allows me—it’s much easier to play around and switch up my art when it doesn’t involve putting a ton of random holes in my wall. I hung this ledge over our couches and have been collecting art links here and there, trying to find the mix of perfect pieces.
When I found this print from Minted, I knew it would be a great addition. Our living room is primarily blue—gray-ish blue couches topped with blue pillows and Shibori prints. I love it, but I didn’t want it to feel too typical or expected. The deep emerald green of the forest photograph added a certain depth to the room that it didn’t have before. It’s definitely become an anchoring piece on the ledge! Coupled with a graphic charcoal sketch, a touch of metallics and copper fairy lights (which are batter operated and so cute when they’re on, even if you can’t see them here!), it’s become the perfect finishing touch on our living room!
