Living Room Inspiration

Photographed by Laura Resen for Domino Magazine


This is my favorite living room ever. I first saw it in Domino Magazine years ago and tore it out for my old-school tear sheet binder. What do I love? The white & wood color scheme with pops of color (mainly red), the rustic beams, the casually slip-covered couch with its varied pillows, the ethnic rug, the sheepskin, the books and artwork covering the walls, the red pouf, the and the fantastic light…. the only things I would add are more green plants and a TV.

I do also love pops of yellow! But I think we’ll be doing that in the bedroom.

I’m on the lookout for affordable poufs. (Our space is too small for a coffee table, and we love to put our feet up on something soft.) This is also another example of a simple throw instead of a traditional slipcover. But I still think I’d like it to be white…

Like these… and although we’ll probably paint the floor white for now, I love the look of these Spanish tiles.
Fine Little Day
Love the grouping of art on the wall and the pillows and throws in Elisabeth Dunker’s living room.

Another case for white, wood, and books.

I’m loving the color palette and the rug in this room. It’s making me think of adding black to my color scheme…
Light Locations
Another linen throw over a sofa… and that light!

I’d love a vintage, worn in leather couch. That’s my dream. For now, we’ll use the couches we already have.

Love the mix of pillows, colors, and styles in this room.
