Get the Look: A Living Room with Pops of Color

This beautiful living room starts with a neutral base (sofa, carpet, walls, and curtains), then layers on texture, gorgeous brass, and pops of bold color. You can get a similar look with the items below. Most are affordable (some very much so), and some need a little DIY, but there are a few splurges in there too. They’re worth it.

  1. Vivan Curtains, IKEA (only $10/pair!)
  2. Carved Wood Side Tables*, Cost Plus World Market and West Elm (just paint them white)
  3. Textured Blue Siri Vases, Room and Board
  4. Bertoia Diamon Lounge Chair, Design Within Reach (sew a custom seat pad in teal for it)
  5. Vittsjö Shelving, IKEA (brass spray paint will do wonders)
  6. Vittsjö Nesting Tables, IKEA (spray these brass too, or go for a beautiful vintage set, like these)
  7. Lotus Flower Table Lamp, Pottery Barn
  8. Hot Pink Bellini Pillow, Madeline Weinrib
  9. Lucy Azure Blue Chair, Target

*edit: I stumbled across this table, already white and an even better match!
