I‘ve been so happy to have practically summer weather here lately. Is is sunny where you are? The warmer weather has been inspiring me to lighten and freshen up my decor for this season (well, and to be ready for summer which is coming up so quickly!).

You know I don’t do actual “spring” decor, but I do love to lighten things up, switch out a few accessories and add in lots of greenery! A little tropical or coastal vibe is always a fave of mine this time of year, too.

I’ve shown you my updated dining room, master bedroom and a bit of my kitchen recently (and you’ll be seeing a lot more of our outside spaces soon), but I’m still really pondering what I’m going to do in my living room.

I definitely feel like changing things a bit (and I’m ready for a new sofa since the sectional we have currently in the room was just there for the winter, it’s going back downstairs). I’m zeroing in on some ideas, but I guess I’m still  “not positive” what I can or want to do yet. I’ll do a post on what I’m thinking soon so we can chat about that.

But in the meantime, I need a little decorating inspiration so I thought I’d share some pretty rooms I found with you, too!

Did you see the Home Again movie? I didn’t, but the last two photos are the house from movie! Do you recognize my daybed (, and here’s a less expensive ), right out in the living room just like mine!

What room are you working on right now? I’d love to hear what you’re up to!

Decorating with a Television In the Living Room

Decorating with a Television In the Living Room

If you saw my last Life Lately post, you may have noticed that over Christmas break we had our TV on a console table in front of our living room fireplace. I got a few questions about that, so this post is inspired by those questions. :)

In all of our homes, we tend to leave the TV out of the main living room. We picture the living room as more of a ‘conversation space’ rather than a loud entertainment room, especially since our living space is pretty open to the rest of the house. Whenever we have family gatherings, though, we love watching movies together and playing games on the TV. We usually gather downstairs for that, but this year since we have our basement set up for some work projects we decided to bring the TV upstairs.

Having it up here for Christmas made me rethink the idea of how our living room would feel with a TV above the fireplace. Generally I always feel like that arrangement doesn’t seem ideal because of the height above a fireplace, but since we have more modest height ceilings in this house I think it would work. I gathered up some inspiration for living rooms with a TV and I think I’m warming up to the idea, especially if beautiful built-ins could be involved! What do you think? Do you have a TV in your living room or do you keep it in a separate space?
