Living Room Tour

Hi friends! I wanted to take a break from the Nordstrom sale madness to share my living room tour with you all. My living room tour has been a long time coming and I am so happy to have partnered with Havenly for its redesign!

To give a little background, I have been in my apartment for almost three years. When I first moved in I had everything from my previous apartment which consisted of a hodgepodge of furniture from college and stuff my parents had passed down over the years. Needless to say nothing meshed very well and it was not my style. Slowly but surely I have worked through redecorating each room in my apartment to make it feel  like “home.” Click through to read more about my living room design with Havenly & to see the finished result!LIFE WITH EMILY LIVING ROOM TOUR

HOW HEAVENLY WORKS

First, I wanted to share how Havenly works because it’s pretty genius! Once you sign up and take a short style survey, you are paired with a designer for either a “mini makeover” or a “full design.” You work very closely with your designer to discuss inspiration for your room, your budget, and what items you will be keeping (so they can incorporate them into your design). From there they provide a series to designs, get your feedback, and once your design is complete you can shop the design right from their site. They handle shipping, redeeming any promos, etc. which always seems to be the hardest part!

What I personally enjoyed about the process is seeing a few different designs for how my space and being able to visualize how it could be set up. I live in an older apartment with an odd set-up, so my designer took that into consideration and found ways that we could make the most of my small space!

P.S. All sources are listed at the bottom of this post! XxLife With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 2WHAT I WANTED FROM MY RE-DESIGN

Like I said above, my living room lacked direction and an overall aesthetic. I really wanted everything to come together and go well with the rest of my home. I wanted to make the most out of my small living space and I wanted it to feel like “home” when I walked in the door. Above all else, I wanted it to be functional. I have seen so many bloggers with bright white couches and gold everywhere and while that’s beautiful, for me personally, that’s not functional. I wanted a nice mix of classic-modern and trendy and I think that’s exactly what I ended up with!Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 27

ABOUT MY LIVING ROOM

I am always drawn to neutrals, so I wanted a lot of neutrals in my living room. When the base colors of a room are neutral, it’s easy to make changes with things like pillows, blankets, art, and decor items. I added small pops of color with those items. I brought in metallic touches with lamps and accessories. The pieces of art really helped to tie the colors together. I couldn’t be more pleased with the way it turned out. I am excited to have friends and family over now and I find myself spending more time in my living room! Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 7Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 37Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 46Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 5Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 40Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 9Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 15 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 25Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 22 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 50Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 31 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 32 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 33 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 35      Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 47 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 48 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 51 Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 53Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 52Life With Emily Living Room Tour Havenly 38

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
