Apartment Tour: Living Room

This week, the apartment tour continues with my living room. I probably spend the most time in this room so it was really important that I made it both comfortable and stylish. 

The couches and chair are from Ikea. They aren't the least comfortable but they also aren't the most comfortable couches ever. I LOVE that they are slip covered and I probably wash them at least once a month. Henry spends more time on the couches than I do, so its nice to have an easy way to clean them. One day, I'll splurge on nicer couches, but for now, they do the trick. 

The pillows are a combination of Caitlin Wilson and Trenna Travis. I made the Trenna Travis ones myself with my sewing machine from my short lived design career freshman year of high school. I haven't mastered the zipper upgrade so the pillows have a hand sewn finish.  For $12 a yard, its a sacrifice I am willing to make. I've been day dreaming about Caitlin Wilson pillows for years so I splurged during a recent sale and purchased a few for my home. Definitely a good decision. Ikea has the best pillow inserts for $8!

I had a friend who custom made the window treatments and they are beautiful!! She doesn't have a website but I suggest you follow her Instagram, its worthy of your envy. 

And just like every other room, I have my Inslee prints. This room happens to have my favorite! For my 25th birthday, my mom had Inslee do a custom illustration of me and Henry. My hair is flowing ever so perfectly, its true she makes you thiner, and we are casually strolling past the most gorgeous peonies. I mean really, this may be my favorite gift I ever received. EVER. I also received the coffee mugs print as a gift from a sweet friend recently! 

Only one room left from my expansive apartment! Stay tuned!

  1. The prints you distributed all over your house are so pretty. They project your chic personality, and having them on your home helps accentuate that chic-ness. Hahaha! Anyway, the throw pillows are a nice addition to the grey couch. Adding those colors made the place look fun instead of dull. Thanks for the tour, Danielle! Have a nice day! :)
