Summer Living Room Decor (Front Living Room Tour 2019)

It's been one of those years that it's super hard to get into summer. I really want it so bad, but the weather is totally not cooperating. Because of that, I'm totally feeling like it's still April. I'm going to feel gypped out of a summer come fall. All my outdoor projects have been on hold because of the crazy rain and winds these past few months. One would think that would make me play around with the stuff inside my house more, but nope! Ha! Totally not. Instead I'm just in rebellion, I guess. I don't know how I am, but I feel like I am :)

I shared with you my summer dining room and entry way over the past two weeks, and today I'll be sharing with you my front living room. I loved the colors and how I decorated my main living room during the spring, so I brought a lot of that over into this room for summer to give it a little refresh. I didn't do big changes, but this just shows that a few small changes can help refresh a space easily.
 Yes, there are a lot of pillows on this couch! But, it rarely get's used so it totally works. This actually folds out into a bed. It's the perfect piece of furniture for a multi-use room.

 I brought in the pops of pink with the pillows and this throw blanket. Yes, blankets are essential in my house during the summer. They are used over and over again. I like it hot, my husband likes it cold. So, yeah, I get the short end of the stick on that one apparently :) Along with the pinks, I brought in lots of faux greenery.
 I'm all about multi-functional furniture in this room. This bench works perfect to conceal toys, yet is a completely functional coffee table.

 Years and years ago, I was so hyper focused on not adding pictures into my decor because it didn't match or it would throw things off. I got over that quickly when I had kids. I had so many photos that I didn't want to just be forgotten on a phone or sd card. So, I decided to create a gallery wall for each kid. I told myself I would go through them and update them as time goes by, but I haven't done that much....and I don't really mind. I love looking at their sweet baby faces :)
 I changed up this mantel quite a bit from spring, made it a little cleaner. Truthfully, it felt so weird looking in this room without all the stuff on the mantel and wall :) You can see the spring mantel here if you don't know what I'm talking about.
That's it for my front room! I am so excited to share with you my next project on my patio. It has made such a difference in the space! So be sure to check back or follow me on social media for links and updates! :)
