The Simple Trick To Sprucing Up Your Living Space

I’ve been having so much fun with these little home decor/reno posts I’ve been sharing with you all! This last one required minimal input for maximum output. Our TV room/den has totally been transformed with one quick trip to T.J. Maxx!

That’s right, I’m a Maxxinista. hahahaha

Did you guess yet?? Throw frikkin pillows! Holla!

As you know, I am becoming totally obsessed with Instagram, and somewhat by chance, I follow a ton of home decor bloggers on Insta. By no means do I consider myself a home decor expert, but after maybe my millionth swoon-worthy decor image on my Insta feed, I looked around my TV room and said in my best Phineas voice (from Phineas and Ferb), “Ferb, I know what we’re gonna do today!”

Stuff that seems to be in: multiple textures; pops of color among neutrals; chippy things (like, chipped wood. lol); ship lap (Sorry, no thanks, I’m not a ship lap girl, JoJo!); mixes of metal and wood; and lots of white.

I looked around at my space, which I am rather proud of, and I knew right away that really all it needed for an update was some gnarly throw pillows, and was hoping to go with colors that matched. When I got to the Maxx and saw what they had, it was fate: I shall go white. I shall go multiple textures. I shall mix and match. I shall pray that it all turns out ok, and that the Tallest Tallman doesn’t have a coronary when he walks in the door. And I shall leave on the tags in case of said coronary. The 4 pillows and white/ivory throw blanket together cost about $85. It was a little bit of a splurge I suppose, but it made such a huge change!

Here is my haul:

The pillows with color were from a Square 1 Art Fundraiser at school! So fun.

Textures… the other white meat.

You know it never looks this tidy now, but at least I have this picture.

And while I was taking these artistic photos of my TV room, Tiny Tallman was busy unrolling a brand new roll of paper towels. Thanks.

 

Do you find the need to do a little updating from time to time? What’s your favorite way to throw your home some lovin’?

    I like to decorate with white and greys. I’m in the process of redoing my bedroom. I’m going to add a pop of teal because it’s somewhat neutral and my fav color! You place looks great. Very homey!!

      Thanks!!! Eventually, I’d love to add more whites and greys in my house, but I figure it’s probably pointless to go too crazy while the kids are little. I love the idea of the pop of teal! Do you follow “Just a Girl and Her Blog?” She does a lot of that, but uses a lighter shade, more of an aqua color. Thanks for reading!
