The first room I wanted to be done was the living room since that it the first room you see when you walk into our home. Also, this room has a gorgeous wall treatment that is really the main focus so the decor I knew would be simple and easy. I wanted something a little more formal for this room since it’s essentially, a formal living room. I felt the square board and batten would give this room a more formal/elegant look while also keeping it clean and modern. I have wall treatments all over my house and I painted them all (ultra pure white by Behr) to keep them cohesive. I feel wall treatments not only add charm and texture to a room but they can be a beautiful focal point so you don’t have to decorate so much. Keeping this room simple was key for me. I added a beautiful orb light fixture, which you can find (here) and I added a gorgeous simple rug with a beautiful clean pattern found on my MOST favorite rug site (rugsusa.com) similar to this one (here). I purchased a smaller more formal couch (more for looks than practicality). And put a few rustic pillows on it to tie in with the rest of my house and bam… done! I hope you enjoy!!
