If I won a free makeover for one room in my house, I would…

furnish a proper living room. Our house right now doesn’t really have a space for a traditional living room, but hopefully we’ll be moving to a new apartment by this summer. I expect that our next home might have a more traditional set up.

I discovered by doing this that I have very few inspiration pictures for living rooms and not a lot of idea what I would want. Here are the inspiration pictures I had clipped.

I love the mix of modern and rustic in this one, part of this house tour on Apartment Therapy.
Here’s another shot of the same room, showing the rug, which I actually really like in this space. 
I like this living room, but I’m less sure what it is about it. I like the simplicity and the fun green couch. This one also came from one of my all-time favorite house tours on Apartment Therapy.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far for my dream living room. 
I love orange and pink, as you can see. I like a mix of textures, metal, wood, fabric. My dream living room would definitely have the shiny arc lamp. I always love those in any pictures I see of them. I find myself, surprisingly, liking cowhide rugs in modern living rooms. The other two musts would be a giant piece of artwork by an artist from the Nicaraguan island of Solentiname and the newspaper-mache animal head from Anthropologie. 
This post was inspired by the Blog Party over at It’s Great To Be Home, and I’m so glad I joined in! It was fun and informative to start thinking about living rooms. Now I know to extra have my eye out for more inspiration pictures of what I like!
