Living Room Inspiration Board

So the entry room, which I’ve deemed “The Lounge” has slowly been getting some character. First the couch and just the other day I added an accent wall (check out the instagram pics for now, but the paint color is included below!). I decided to throw together a living room inspiration board to have for my own reference and, perhaps, your inspiration.

Petite Modern Life: Industrial Modern Living Room Inspiration

The mid century coffee table and couch are similar to what I already have. I found a 2.5 foot tall metal utility shelf on craigslist for $10, but haven’t found anything online to match that price and size. I bought the candles and vials at Marshalls for $7 (for each candle and for a set of 3 vials); I love the look of a cigar box and the Kraken rum, though I don’t use either… My best crafting friend Britta told me I should do Sherlock inspired accessories. Nerd alert: I LOVE THAT IDEA. Hence the magnifying glass and book… Please comment on what else you think I need to complete that look (a skull? Or would that be weird?) !

I’m not sure I would’ve said I had plans to decorate my future home “industrial modern.” Only as I started picking out and piecing together my current favorite objects, colors, and textures did I realize my design fell into that category. Putting a name to it has helped me focus on how I should lay out the room and what I want to keep a buying eye out for. Otherwise I’m prone to buy decor that I later go, “ooooh.. I shouldn’t have bought that..”  I also have some art DIY plans that involve metal and wood. Can’t wait to share that with you if i can pull it off!

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
