When I think of all the wonderful things that have happened so far in 2014, I feel completely grateful and blessed. Not only do I have two healthy kids who are enjoying school and a wonderful husband with whom I just celebrated 15 years of marriage, but I’m also lucky enough to get the mud room I’ve been dreaming of.Yes… a mud room!! Squee!
Of course, because we have an open-concept house, the addition of a new room (and a new colour scheme) means that the entire main floor needs a facelift. My beige sofa and cream walls used to be accented with dark red, charcoal and tan, but as soon as I chose this amazing teal for my mudroom walls, everything needed to be changed.
|My new mud room… still under construction.|
Being the frugal girl that I am, my first thought was to visit my local Target store. I’ve always loved the chic home accessories they carry… and the prices that fit my (limited) budget!
I was on the hunt for pillows and curtains, desperately hoping they’d have something to go with the teal wall colour and could coordinate with an existing floral pillow that I wanted to use (shown in forefront, below).
After a few minutes of searching their wide selection of pillows and draperies, I came up with the perfect combination…
Before I went home, I spotted this cute cube ottoman (in all the right colours!), so I snapped it up too. It’s the perfect low-profile piece to replace a small, worn chair I’ve been meaning to get rid of. My mother-in-law was able to source a second matching ottoman, so it will make a perfect occasional seating area. 🙂
I’m a big fan of mixing items from different price points. The existing floral pillow was a splurge, so I was happy to find these solid pillows for under $14 each, the pair of curtain panels for $34, and the ottoman for $70.
I love how bright and airy my living room looks now. I’m #ThankFALL to be able to transform my main floor on a budget, and make it a place where my entire family can feel comfortable and happy.
