    If ever there were a moment for the heart eyes emoji, this would be it. I love how it’s fun but sophisticated, not *too* girly and liveable. There’s so much seating for guests, but it’s still cozy. Most of all I love that it can be recreated on a budget and done in rentals as well. You did a fantastic job putting your own twist on the original and personally… I like yours better!

    Ah! I love it! First of all, this is the first ‘designer room’ I’ve seen with a TV — I thought I was the only one with one of those fangled things! Second, that scalloped pillow has me ready to sew one up! LASTLY — Do you love your IKEA couch? Is it comfy? So many people have recommended the Karlstad to me — but this is the one I have my heart set on. πŸ™‚

    WOW my boyfriend and I are making the leap to move in together and it has been a bit of trial and error to match our styles (I’m more mid-century and colour crazy he’s more laidback/industrial) this is perfect! I love how every where you look something catches the eye and shows off your personality without being to busy or over the top! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    I love love love everything about the room except for the wall color. I would have used a light gray. Not a yellow undertone color. Everything else is gorgeous.

    Just gorgeous! Unbelievable that this was plain, simple, rental home living room! The colors are so vibrant. My absolute favorite is the Arizona touches especially the “diving lady” motel sign. Those of us who have lived in Mesa and have driven up and down Main Street for decades truly are impressed with that particular attention to detail. You have an unbelievable eye! I know what I like when I see it but couldn’t create it if my life depended upon it! Congratulations on a beautiful job with this space! Personally, I love the wall color and am impressed with the bold color choices and contrasting art! love love love…..makes me want to go home and start working on my own space

    I so enjoyed seeing each and every detail of this amazing living area. As a person that grew up “mid-century” the dΓ©cor brings back happy memories of my childhood.

    Holy bananas! So many pretty things to look at!! I’m the only girl in my house too, so I love seeing how you incorporated feminine things without it being overly girly. πŸ™‚

    Great room. Thanks for the copper lamp idea. I think I will use it in my bedroom. We are way over our heads into copper in our home dec, but still turn to it again and again. You got a great score on the native American basket. That is so unusual in those colors. Good job. Welcome back to Arizona.

    Love, love the chair with the black and white IKEA throw on it that you said you got in NY. Seriously… I want to steal it πŸ˜‰

    Also that diving lady print is SO good! XOXO

    Fantastic job of blending an eclectic palette..
    Great inspiration for me –
    The scalloped pillow is wonderful pop of color
    As a painter I’d love to discuss some collaboration ideas!

    Hey do you mind sharing where you got your coffee table from plus what the height is? I have a kivik as well and I’m having the hardest time finding a coffee table that isn’t too tall. Any and all help is appreciated.

      It’s vintage and I don’t have it anymore so I don’t know the height. Sorry!
