Living Room Inspiration by Veronica

As I mentioned yesterday, Garrett and I are about to move in together. And let me tell you a secret: we are poor. Not "I don't know where our next meal is coming from" poor, but still. Our first place together isn't going to be super fancy, but I want it to look nice and pulled together. We're real adults now, you know? Adults are supposed to have matching furniture.

But I was kind of at a loss for what to do. I know exactly what I would do if I had a gazillion dollars and a huge house. But a small apartment and a smaller budget? That was going to be a little harder. So when I saw that Veronica over at Passion, Pink and Pearls was offering free design boards a few months ago, I jumped on it and I gotta say: I LOVE everything she came up with for us!!

Product List:
Sofa Chair: Overstock.com
Sofa: IKEA
Floor Lamp: CB2
Pillows: Target, Target
Bowl: CB2
Lamp: Pier1
Blanket: Pier1

I love that this look is in the gray and yellow color scheme, which is super popular right now, but adds a unique touch with the teal. I LOVE teal, but this is never something I'd think to pair with gray and yellow myself. That's what Veronica is the professional, right?

The coffee table is something I'm taking from my grandparents. It was in their first house, and I'm so excited to have them in mine. We'll probably restain them once we figure out exactly what furniture we have.

Now, go check out Veronica's blog!!! She posted this living room on her blog today as well, with much more detailed explanations and lots of design talk. You will love her, I guarantee it. And if you're interested in her design services (which I highly recommend, obviously!) you can check out her Pearl Design Services page to learn more.
