Living Room Refresh for Spring

Ready for a living room refresh? Check out these decorating and styling tips, including a mood board inspired by spring.

Today I’m excited to show you my latest e-design project. After receiving Barbara’s list of wants and needs, as well as looking through several snapshots of her living room, I was able to pinpoint what she was looking for in regards to home decor selections.

Living Room Details

  • Drawn towards traditional styling.
  • Favourite furniture resources are Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn.
  • Most comfortable living with shades of cream, yellow and pink.
  • She and her husband basically live in the room.
  • Loves everything in the room, but wants the look pulled together.
Living Room Moodboard for Spring

Living Room Refresh

Before, Barbara’s living room had great foundational pieces, but it lacked personality. I suggested keeping the space fairly neutral by adding different textures, such as grasscloth wallpaper, a sisal area rug and chunky accessories.

Adding a few more yellow accessories will bring the space to life, and will complement the existing elements in other parts of her home to maintain flow.

Here’s what we were starting with. Pretty good, right?

Along with the mood board, I created a plan for updating the window treatments, addressing the fireplace, styling the built-ins, and more.

Here are a couple of the inspiration photos I included to demonstrate the direction I suggest taking the room in…

Barbara loves what I put together. Like many clients, she had an idea of what she wanted, and my suggestions provided the confirmation she was looking for. Now she has the confidence to move forward with purchasing items to finish off the room.

  1. I love your design style so much Shauna!  I think it’s time I do a living room refresh over here too – maybe that will make spring come sooner!

  2. I adore the cubby with the white and grey, it’s awesome, clean and oh so changeable! My favorite thing to do. You are correct, this space was really nice to begin with, but your suggestions will most certainly pull it all together!

  3. I would love for someone to come and redo not only my living room but my whole house.
    I will start with the living room after seeing your pictures
    Thanks for sharing

  4. You have such a great eye! The shelving nook is going to look fantastic once it’s freshened up a lil bit! Ps. I need that tufted ottoman from The Inspired Room!!!

  5. Love that Ikat print and the pops of yellow! And I swoon at the gold (brass?) bowl! 

    That turquoise ottoman is beautiful in the inspiration photo. I want it!

    And Barbara has got a great room to work with! Would she consider painting her large buffet that the TV is on? What a great piece! 

  6. Your mood board is fantastic, Shauna! I think you’ve really demonstrated how to bring the punch of personality into the space!!

  7. Lovely, Shauna!  The space already looked great, but your finishing touch ideas will make it look fabulous!

  8. I love what you suggested for the living room Shauna! So pretty & perfect! Have a lovely weekend! Angie xo
