Room of Wanderlust

When designing a room in my house for a new season, I try to think of what I’ve done in the past, what I’m currently drawn to, and what I have already accumulated. Upon trying to decorate my living room for the upcoming fall, I realized I was starting with two blue velvety chairs, a couple of Missoni Home pillows, a white sectional, a cowhide rug, a pink oriental rug, various candles, and a couple of miscellaneous photos. The compilation of all of these leads me to quite the eclectic hodgepodge. I decided since I’ve traveled quite a bit, I would go for a wanderlust Bohemian vibe.

I decided to make a gallery wall with the pineapple and toucan artwork from Lila + Lola on Etsy, the bird decals from Target, and the American flag from Pottery Barn. Then I had a family photo framed by Framebridge, and a butterfly watercolor from Etsy as well. I decided to try the cowhide rug over the Oriental rug for a layered feel and put some of the candles on a tray to top off the coffee table from Pottery Barn.

After that it was time to dress the couch. I pulled out my two Missoni Home pillows as a starting point, and from there I resorted to One Kings Lane, Kilm, and Target.

The one happy surprised I had was when I stumbled upon Simons a Canadian store that had really cute clothing and home decor. I found both the cactus pillow and the anchor lumbar pillow on the site and I finally had finished off my wanderlust living room.
