Five Fresh Ideas to Decorate Your Living Room

Sep 7, 2011

by rachkat926

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Rachel DeSchepper is a twentysomething living in a Brooklyn apartment with tin ceilings and creaky wood floors. As the online editor of Fresh Home, she’s always got a project up her sleeve: rehabbing a $20 dresser she found on Craigslist, or painting (and repainting) her room until she’s found the winner out of 80 different shades of blue-gray. Rachel loves city life, but dreams of wraparound porches, window seats and backyard gardens. Until then, she lives vicariously through Fresh Home’s website and blog, pins a ton on Pinterest, and tirelessly posts on Facebook and Twitter.

My personal style is hard to pin down, especially in the living room. Sometimes I’m drawn to all-white, sleek, Eames-like enclaves; the next day I’ll be longing for a cozy nook, filled with books, pillows and throws. These five rooms pretty much run the decorating gamut, and I love them all equally. Call me indecisive or an egalitarian – either way, I’d be lucky to put my feet up in any of these lovely rooms. Be sure to comment and let me know which room – and which Etsy collection – strikes your fancy most!


TRADITIONAL

 

[Clockwise from top left: Lime green curtains from kirtamdesigns; 1940s Hollywood Regency chandelier from fabulousmess; Lacey teardrop lamp from Lawrence Mcrae; Antique yellow chair from metrosofa; Vintage Hollywood Regency brass and marble coffee table from junk2funkbiz; Vintage Hollywood Regency bird figures from fabulousmess; Felt flower pillow cover from urbanfringe;  “Holly” painting from Leigh’s Art]

To me, traditional doesn’t mean boring. I love the Hollywood Regency vibe in this glamorous living room, designed by homeowner and designer Amie Corley. It combines the best of old and new — a sleek white sofa juxtaposed with reupholstered vintage French chairs and modern drapes mixed with a totally glitzy chandelier. This is one of my favorite rooms on our site.

COUNTRY

[Clockwise from top left: Vintage serving cart from Violet Hill Vintage;  Pair of blue folding chairs from Golden Days Antiques; Yellow mesh wire table from bluebonnetfields; Dandelion art from papermoth; Blue corral throw pillow from Kainkain; Grey/blue dresser from poppyseedliving; Solid brass birdcage from Jolly Time One; Set of six Herman Miller Eames chairs from retrograde la; Vintage porch bed from Styled Vintage Chic]

The indoor/outdoor feel of this room really speaks to me; it could be an indoor living room or an outdoor screened-in porch. You’d usually expect country style to be all hens-and-chickens, but this room proves it can be industrial, too — almost mid-century modern. I loved shopping for vintage metal and mesh furniture and mixing it with soft touches like pretty throw pillows and a dandelion painting. I about died when I found a set of six Herman Miller Eames chairs!

MODERN

[Clockwise from top left: Handmade woven baskets from giftgogreen; Coney Island photograph from depuis; Girl on bike artprint from theBungaloo; Set of 2 droplet vases from  Sara Paloma Pottery; Mid-century blue sofa from dejavulongbeach; WWII Philippine teak mask from ElectibleParts4U; Cherry red pillow with pink blossoms from Swoon Studio]

This is another of my favorite rooms. It belongs to designer Cara Scarola from Ore Studios. It’s modern without feeling sparse; collected without feeling cluttered. I love the salon-style artwork — one piece is an original Janet Lippincott. I chose art from some of my favorite Etsy shops to riff off of Cara’s collection.

BEACH / COTTAGE

[Clockwise from top left: Black and white tilt-shifted photo of New York City from amlamster; James Town print from  Sarah Giannobile; Hot pink throw pillow cover from Sassy Pillows; Honeysuckle pillow cover from Sassy Pillows;  Rust and linen pillow cover from milk & cookies canada; Vintage wood side table from hindsvik; Ottoman slip cover from Ideal Window Fashions; Art deco glass lamp from Phat Dog]

This bright white room — especially the stark walls and furnishings — provides a crisp background for bright highlights, like pink and animal print pillows. The sisal rug and wood plant stand just scream cottage, while modern touches like the Art Deco table lamp and ceiling fixture bring it up to date. Again, I love the collection of black and white art prints, hung gallery style in the corner. I pulled from favorite Etsy shops for these, too.

CONTEMPORARY

[Clockwise from top left: Blue and white pillow cover from Rufflewood Upcycled white candle lamp from ccaapppVintage rococo-style gilt mirror from & found; Turquoise bud vase from Tanner GlassGlass bud vases from David Jacobson GlassAntique dresser from DutchTouchAntiquesDecorative orange and clay pillow cover from Turquoise Tumbleweed

I was hoping to find a light fixture to match this Serge Mouille-inspired ceiling piece, but came up a bit empty. No worries, though – the Rococo-inspired gilt mirror was jackpot! I dig the fearless mix of patterns in this room and pops of turquoise from glass vases. I feel like contemporary rooms are just right – not too modern, not too vintage. It’s a great mix.

    I believe being versatile in your home is key to truly enjoying a house's (or apartment's) full potential. Our personalities are not just one way, so why should our living area be?

    I'm just too bohemian so I'd pick all of the above, in bits and pieces. Which makes me a true eclectic. Love the wall treatment in the Contemporary layout. It's exactly like all the stuff in my parents' circa 1960s decorating books. Volumes that I learned by <3, I might add. Nice work!

  • GoodTimeIsland

    GoodTimeIsland said 6 years ago

    I enjoy each of these styled rooms, however, I think they are all missing one element. TV. Living rooms are easier to coordinate without them, and see I this in most design/decorating pictorials. Honestly, most of us have televisions and although an eye sore its a piece we all decorate around. I want to see a blog about that. Maybe I'll start one...

  • AukinasGoddess

    they're all beautiful, but the country one surprised me... i loved the modern earthy feel, and how there were no roosters or cows. nice article. :)

  • BSoriginals

    Love them all !!.To the comment above about all of us having TVs-you are right and I have fun finding and restoring pieces of furniture to house electrical items (because they ARE ugly!).I am redoing an old meat safe at the moment to put my TV,stereo,speakers,DVD player and my daughters playstation in.The old meatsafes/wooden 'fridges' from early last century make great TV cabinets as they have ventilation usually in the form of fly mesh.This can be replaced with any number of alternatives.I used the punched metal that wraps around heater flues.It looks great.

    I truly am a beach person - why don't I live near one?!? I would love to incorporate different elements from each one. What does that say about my style? All over the place and beautiful at the same time - I suppose.

  • ArtfulTrinkets1

    ArtfulTrinkets1 said 6 years ago

    I like the overall feel of the contemporary as it's so warm and cosy with lots of detail. But having eclectic taste, there are elements I like in all the rooms. Love the chandelier, the ornate mirrors, the artwork, the distressed dressers, and the red floral ottoman especially. Gorgeous!

    *Gasp!* I had to do a double take when I saw that this entry focused on home decor - I hardly ever see such posts on Etsy outside of Sunday's Get the Look feature and I've always wondered why because they're so fresh and inspirational. This one is no exception - awesome job and please please PLEASE keep 'em coming! :)

  • MegnificentCo

    MegnificentCo said 6 years ago

    I hate playing by the rules, so I like to incorporate a bit of each aesthetic into my own decor. I have beach cottage-y curtains in my dining room, paired with a formal crystal chandelier, a modern bar, and contemporary plates displayed in my china cabinet (alongside my formal wedding china). With the pieces thoughtfully mixed together, it actually allows me to love and embrace a little of everything in limited space!

    I was drawn to contemporary and beach/cottage the most. I love the turquoise in the contemporary and the large open windows. The Beach/cottage feels like home (except for those white couches which would never last in my home). Maybe to settle the deal I will put turquoise couches in the Beach Cottage room. Yes, that does it.

    The traditional collection is soothing, the country relaxes me, the modern intrigues me, the beach / cottage charms me, and the traditional... well, I like bits from all of them! Fun!

    I love every room and I would mix them all together to create my own flavor. It is my dream to create a home with an electic mix of vintage and socially conscious items on a shoestring budget.

    I really can't decide. I love them all. I think each of the rooms would be perfect for relaxing in at the end of a long day.
